Welcome to GEM104’s Small Business Spotlight, where we sit down and talk with local small business from our listening area. This is one of my personal favorite features of the GEM104 website because it gives GEM104 the chance to tell the story from “behind the scenes”.
I had the pleasure to sit down with Steve Thomas, the owner of Steve’s Title & Tag located 221 W Tioga Street, Tunkhannock, PA 18657 across from the Tunkhannock Library. Steve has a very interesting story to tell. Steve has been a Tunkhannock resident his whole life and takes immense pride in being a Tunkhannock native. Steve served in the United States Navy for 27 years, retiring in 2005 as a Senior Chief Petty Officer.
When Steve was in the Navy reserves in Philadelphia, he noticed that there were title & tag services all over the Philadelphia area, however, back home in Tunkhannock, his community did not have this service available to its residents. In 1984, when Steve returned home from the Navy Reserves, he started a title & tag service to go along with the family business, Kintner Insurance, which his grandfather had started by in 1948.
After 15 years of running his title and tag business out of Kintner Insurance, he merged with another service. However, January 2nd 2017, Steve decided to open his own Title and Tag service.
Steve and his family hold an immense pride for our country as well as our military service. This along with his integrity, knowledge, and honesty is what he brings to Steve’s Title and Tag. Providing Insurance sales, notary services including title transfers, vehicle registration, apportioned registration, and more serving throughout the Tunkhannock and surrounding areas.
So, the next time you need your vehicle registered, a notary service taken care of, or just have a question, stop in to Steve’s Title and Tag, located 221 W Tioga Street, Tunkhannock, PA 18657 or visit him on Facebook.
