About UsOur Company

We’re on this road together.

Helping people get there - Safely, Sustainably and Successfully

Our History

In 1956 Bill Fountain opened our first store in Wainwright, Alberta. In the beginning, Fountain Tire existed only as a double-bay garage in Wainwright, Alberta. Then it spread, across Alberta, across the Prairies, and now across Canada.

Our Business

At Fountain Tire, partnerships are a core element of our DNA. Our unique 50/50 model provides our local managers the opportunity to own 50% of their store by partnering with Fountain Tire.

Our Partner

In 1987 we partnered with Goodyear Canada, one of the world’s leading tire manufacturers. Goodyear’s established marketing presence and our reputation as a leading Canadian tire retailer helped us both flourish.

Our Network

Today we have over 165 stores spanning from British Columbia to Ontario. We’re still growing.
