Published: Thu Feb 28 2013

Tire Innovations, which provides ecommerce tire sales to consumers throughout North America through its online portal TireMonkey.com, today announced a marketing relationship with Tarkenton Companies, founded by serial entrepreneur and NFL Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton. Tarkenton Companies will be marketing TireMonkey.com to consumers and commercial purchasing agents through various channels including SmallBizClub.com, radio programming and social media outlets.

"Currently TireMonkey.com has 10 distributors across the US that deliver via 80 regional warehouses carrying 28 brands of tires, "said Kim Winslow, CEO of Tiremonkey.com. "All tires sourced on TireMonkey are sold at very competitive discount prices because we work hard to keep our costs low so we can pass the savings on to our valued customers. The tires are shipped to over 4500 of our registered TireMonkey installers across the country providing in most areas local delivery in 1 to 2 days and local installers for consumers to have the tires mounted on their car at typically a 25% discount over the installer’s normal installation price.  The wholesalers and installers we have partnered with prefer TireMonkey as an eCommerce partner over our competitors who have their own warehouses and compete with the installer/retailers for local markets."

"Our commitment to small business has helped me identify dynamic companies such as Tire Innovations who are truly re-inventing business models. " says Fran Tarkenton, Founder and CEO of Tarkenton Companies. "In the tire industry, consumers are recognizing the cost-effectiveness, simplicity and efficiency of purchasing tires online. TireMonkey offers consumers a convenient cost effective alternative when buying tires and supports the existing supply chain of regional distributors and local small business installers. We’re excited to partner with TireMonkey.com to help them grow and make their valuable products and services available to consumers and small business owners nationwide."

Tarkenton Companies is an independently operated organization, with each subsidiary providing various products and services to the small business sector. Tarkenton’s latest venture is SmallBizClub.com, a joint project with Office Depot, Inc., resulting from the commitment of both companies to help small businesses succeed. SmallBizClub.com helps promote small business advocacy and provides an educational network site designed to provide entrepreneurs access to the tools, resources and knowledge needed to start, run and grow a business. SmallBizClub.com presents content that is intended to help small business owners succeed, whether that means growing into a major employer or simply providing consistent cash flow for a family business.
