About JAXQuickfit Gladstone
Mick and Janette Connolly attribute much of their two sons' work ethic to their teenage years working in the family JAXQuickfit Tyres Gladstone store.
Starting out as a bank manager, Mick took a plunge into business ownership with wife Janette when they purchased a petrol station on the same site as the current JAXQuickfit Tyres store they now own.
"We started pumping petrol, then moved into selling second-hand tyres because there was a market for it," Mrs Connolly said.
"It was then 12 years ago that we opened our own JAXQuickfit Tyres here on the site."
Heavily involved in the junior rugby union scene in the area, Mick and Janette used the small amount of spare time they had wisely when their sons were young.
"Mick coached the boys rugby union at school and then the boys got their first jobs here as soon as they were old enough to work and they have gone on to be successful tradesmen - they have a very good work ethic," Mrs Connolly said.
Locals come from as far afield as Tannum Sands and Calliope to the Gladstone store, and in an effort to service their customers JAXQuickfit Tyres Gladstone is open from 7:30am-5:30pm Monday to Friday and 7:30am to 12 midday on Saturdays.
"We have a lot of shift workers in town, so we have to work with them," Mrs Connolly said.
