“Be fair, be truthful, work hard, be there on time, and help people.”
- Bruce T. Halle, Sr., Chairman, Discount Tire Corporation
In 1960, when Bruce T. Halle founded Discount Tire, the road ahead looked bumpy. Armed with only six tires and a deeply held belief in fairness and integrity, Halle established his first store in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The sole employee, Halle was the tire technician, accountant, sign painter and cleaning crew.
Today, Discount Tire enjoys a smoother ride, operating more than 900 stores in 30 states. The company has remained true to Halle’s vision, which centers on a heartfelt commitment to each customer and employee.
In 2002, Bruce and Diane Halle founded the Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation to extend that sense of caring to the larger community. The Halle Foundation now serves as a leader in promoting new ways to collaborate on issues of social justice. While that begins with funding, our proudest investment is providing time, guidance and support to every partnership we form and every life we touch.
