An Exciting Time in Our Story
Nearly 70 years after Les Schwab founded our Company, its Board and Shareholders are seeking new ownership for the nation’s highest-ranked, most customer-focused tire retailer.
“Our incredible Tire Centers, and the company and communities we have built together, make us proud,” Les’ family said in a statement. “As hard as it is to make the decision to sell this company, we are confident it will offer tremendous opportunity to build on all we have accomplished together for our customers, communities and our employees. We are excited to see what the future will bring.”

Always Driven by Our Founder’s Vision
Born in 1917 in Bend, Oregon, Les Schwab came from humble beginnings. He was a self-made man, and believed in old-fashioned hard work. Les built his business from one store to hundreds of locations across the western states, making Les Schwab one of the largest independent tire businesses in the United States.
He didn’t do it alone. Les valued partnership — he was married for over 70 years after all — and provided his employees training and opportunities to grow and succeed, both financially and personally. Les believed in treating customers like family.
Although Les passed away in 2007, his vision remains at the core of the company’s culture: give people more for their money … reward employees for their expertise and hard work … earn people’s trust and everyone benefits. Today, the 7,000+ employees of Les Schwab Tire Centers are proud to carry on this legacy.
Doing it right is what we do best
