2015 Business Leader of the Year
Reeves Tire & Automotive began over 37 years ago in 1978 by patriarch of the Reeves family, John Reeves. John successfully grew the business and was widely known for conducting his business with honesty, integrity and a wealth of knowledge for the products and services he provided. His commitment to his business philosophy and values earned him a long standing reputation within the community he lived and worked in. Reeves Tire is rooted by family. Over 15 years ago, John sold the business to his daughters and their husbands. Reeves Tire & Automotive is now owned by Kent & Kristen Cristy and Karen & Michael Brownfield. All of the family have worked under the direction of patriarch John Reeves and have benefited from his teachings and example and are proud to continue the business principles and values Reeves Tire & Automotive was built on.
As we all know, when you talk or write about something you love and are so proud of we could go on and on and on. But the shortened history of Reeves Tire is as follows. We started on 4th Street in Joplin. That location was added onto as the business grew. Opportunity for a larger location became available on 7th Street in Joplin with a business move in 1995. This location allowed us to more than triple our business. On the early morning of November 24, 2009, the 7th Street location suffered a fire that devastated the physical business. Determined to continue the legacy of the business we love, we opened a temporary location in a warehouse on the same property and rebuilt. With a lot of support, hard work, and perseverance we opened the new store on September 19, 2010. With continued business growth a decision was made there were enough opportunities present to bring to life our dream of opening a second location in Webb City. That location opened over three years ago in April of 2012.
Both stores combined employ 18 local people. The business we receive from our customers is funneled back to our local communities through each of our employees who work, live and play within our local communities.Business support of Reeves Tire & Automotive allows us to support our communities through local schools, sports, civic organizations, and individual needs.
