Half a century of success!

Snap-on continue to go from strength to strength. This year, the UK arm of the global franchise is celebrating their 50th anniversary and they’re kicking 2015 off by hosting two large tool fairs for franchisees to come together and support each other’s businesses.

Over 370 attendees are expected and all will have the chance to attend training sessions on topics such as using technology to help with their businesses, growing their businesses by introducing an assistant and how to close deals on toolboxes.

Throughout the day, franchisees will also have the opportunity to purchase great products for their businesses. The day’s events will be followed by an awards ceremony and black tie evening dance to help franchisees unwind and celebrate everyone’s successes.

With over 430 franchisees based in the UK and Ireland, Snap-on have a successful, proven business model and they’re looking to continue this success and expand their network over the next 50 years and beyond!

Snap-on is the world’s number one professional tool brand. They are the leading global manufacturer and distributor of tools for the professional technician. Franchisees deliver gold-standard, premium products to technicians up and down the country. Snap-on’s fantastic business offers you the chance to be your own boss whilst being supported by an elite team of industry specialists.

“Reaching this huge milestone is testament to the hard work put in by everyone involved with the Snap-on brand. That includes the team at head office and our vast network of franchisees. We all strive to sustain our brand and our reputation. There’s no denying the commitment pays off; it’s why we’re the go-to choice for professional technicians across the UK. We plan to continue our success into 2015 and even the next 50 years. We’re at the top of our game and the leaders in our market and we intend to keep that position,” explains Lisa Law, Snap-on’s National Franchise Manager.

Snap-on franchisees benefit from being part of a well-established and trusted brand. The business model has been refined and adapted since 1920 and ensures franchisees are well-positioned to maximise profits over the long term.

“Snap-on have a proven and simple business model which is a huge comfort when you’re looking at setting up your own business. You know that if you follow their plan and advice you will do well – if you put the work in, the sky’s the limit,” says William Hurt, East Durham franchisee.

“I was young when I started so franchising was the best option I had to start my own business. I’d dealt with Snap-on before so I knew it was a good product because I was already a customer. As soon as I’d been on my first van ride and had been introduced to the system I knew that I wanted in!” adds Steven Scott, Lanarkshire franchisee.

And it’s not just the franchisees who enjoy the benefits and rewards of the Snap-on brand. In an independent industry survey, Snap-on was the clear number one choice of the professional technician. For 80% of respondents, Snap-on was the top choice for hand tools and 65% chose Snap-on for tool storage. With a global franchise system of over 4,700 franchisees selling over 22,000 products, you can have complete confidence that partnering with Snap-on means partnering with the best.
