Les Schwab Tire Centers began in 1952, in a town called Prineville, Oregon, where our founder, Les Schwab, started out with one small tire store. From the get-go, Les recognized anybody could sell tires; it was earning customer trust that takes real effort and integrity.
The values Les put in place over 60 years ago continue to guide the Company.
• Give honest advice on what’s really needed.
• Do the job right the first time.
• Stand behind all you do.
• Share success with employees.
For more than 60 years, Les Schwab has taken Pride in Performance, providing superior value and building customers for life through world class service. People choose Les Schwab because they trust our service and our values.
We've gone from 1 store and 1 employee — our founder, Les Schwab — to more than 450 stores and over 7,000 employees today. Our secret? Success is a two-way street. Our employees deliver World Class Customer Service. In return, we provide them with generous bonus and benefit programs. – less
