For the past 30 years, Joe and Nancye Cadle have been proud to serve the Grovetown community as the owners and operators of the business they now call Gate 2 Tire & Auto Center. Joe and Nancye first opened Cadle Auto Supply in August 1987 where they sold auto parts and ran the adjacent garage and car wash. Many Grovetown locals may remember there was just a cow pasture right across the street. In those days, Grovetown was just a little town right outside of Fort Gordon's Gate 2 and had a population of less than 3,000 people. Just as Grovetown has grown and changed in the past three decades, so has this family business. The biggest change came in late 2002, when they did a complete remodel of the current shop at 601 E Robinson Avenue. They opened as the current Gate 2 Tire & Auto Center in February 2003.
The latest change came in late 2015 when Gate 2 Tire upgraded the garage with new lifts, installed new equipment, and finished a complete remodel of the showroom area. A new waiting area allows customers to relax, watch TV, or use WiFi while they wait. He even added a kids corner!
