Nashville Radio Show: Bridgestone Retail Operations

Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC (BSRO) is headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., and operates the largest network of company-owned automotive service providers in the world — more than 2,200 tire and vehicle service centers across the United States — including Firestone Complete Auto Care, Tires Plus, Hibdon Tires Plus and Wheel Works store locations. Credit First National Association and Firestone Complete Fleet Care operations are also part of BSRO. BSRO is a member of the Bridgestone Americas family of companies.

Bridgestone is committed to giving back our communities in which they move, live, work and play, particularly in Middle Tennessee which is also the home of Bridgestone’s corporate headquarters and more than 3500 employees. This is part of their global commitment to corporate social responsibility, Our Way to Serve. Through the Driving Great Futures campaign, BSRO collects donations for Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) in their 2,220 retail stores across the country. In 2018, BSRO donated $2.8 million to BGCA, a record-breaking fundraising year in their four year partnership. Funds were collected with the help of customers and key vendor partners.

In 2018, BSRO provided 81 Boys & Girls Clubs across the country with transportation grants to enable these organizations to get more kids to and from the Club who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get there or allow them to take Club members on educational field trips. This increases access to the high-impact out-of-school programming that sets up young people for great futures. One of the recipients of these transportation grants was the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee, who was able to purchase a new passenger van that will help to safely transport kids and teens to and from the Club for after-school activities. BSRO local store employees from Firestone Complete Auto Care had the distinct privilege of delivering this new van and outfitting it with Bridgestone DriveGuard tires. These tires are engineered to travel up to 50 miles at 50 mph in the event of a puncture or sudden loss of tire pressure, allowing Club drivers to safely transport its passengers to their local Club and/or their home.
