Cypress Tires has been an institution in Winter Haven since 1959, and a legacy property in the beloved Endres family for generations. So when Lisa Endres decided it was time to move to the next adventure, she was keen to ensure whoever would now run her beloved business would continue the legacy her family worked so hard to create!
When she met Retired U.S. Navy Commander Ernual “Ernie” Miranda and his wife Madelyn Zapata she knew she had found the right people, the right “fit”, the ones who will continue to instill the values of exceptional service and being great community partners, and indeed she had!
Amanda Jo, our Vice President of Member Services, had the pleasure of meeting with Ernie and Madelyn this week, and was overjoyed to hear about how much they love Winter Haven and how they are working to keep the great team of staff employed and busy at Cypress Tires. Following an illustrious 24 year career in the U.S. Navy (check out the awesome pictures proudly displayed in the waiting room of Cypress Tires of the ships and places Ernie has served on and in), they are already working to preserve the values of a great company while incorporating new investment and methods.
Already they are active and supportive members of our community so please join me in welcoming Ernie & Madelyn to Winter Haven!
