Our Team

Middlefield Tire, family-owned and operated since the 1970s, was purchased by Frank Mormino in 1992.  He expanded the business from an undercar garage to a full-mechanical car-care center. Frank is truly the face of Middlefield Tire and can be seen working the front counter, running errands, shuttling customers to and from while their cars are being repaired.  Frank does a lot of “behind the scenes work” including bookkeeping, social-media updates, and performing maintenance around the shop.  The most important part of his job is keeping customers happy!  Frank grew up in Chesterland and through many years in this business, he has become part of the Middlefield community.  In his spare time he loves to golf and target shoot. Frank lives in Newbury with his wife and two daughters.  Stop in and make sure to say “Hi” to Frank.  He would love to help you!
