Automotive repair and tire services company Monro Inc. plans to expand its headquarters in Monroe County and add up to 26 jobs.

The project will be completed in two separate and distinct phases.  Phase I is primarily the construction of approximately 13,000 square-feet on two floors at Monro’s Holleder Parkway location.  This construction will allow for the addition of 12 new offices and nearly 80 workstations.  Phase II will include the renovation of existing space to allow for the addition of 10 conference rooms and other enhancements aimed at attracting and retaining its highly skilled workforce. Already underway, the first phase of expansion is expected to be complete later this summer.

The company will receive up to $300,000 in state tax incentives. Monroe County and Greater Rochester Enterprise are also assisting with the company’s expansion.

Charles J. August opened his first muffler shop in Rochester in 1957. Monro owns and operates more than 1,200 auto service and tire centers, as well as commercial auto service and wholesale tire businesses, making it one of the largest such chains in the United States. In New York State, Monro operates 151 retail stores and employs approximately 760 workers at these locations.
