Ken's Tire, Inc. was established April 7, 1975 by Kenneth and Dorothy Blankenhorn at 138 River Street, Cressona, Pennsylvania as a one man operation. Early in the morning and into the afternoon, Ken would deliver product to wholesale customers and would get back to the shop and retail in the evening. In the summer of 1983, business had grown and a new location on the Gordon Nagle Trail, Cressona was purchased and retail business grew dramatically.
