Roaring trade for Snap-on

Snap-on have welcomed 23 new starters to their network between April and June this year. This is great news for the network and the team at Snap-on is looking forward to seeing what each and every one of them will achieve.

Mat Thornton.jpgThe new starters include 13 new franchisees and 10 second franchisees. The second franchisees are employed by existing franchisees who have decided to expand into a second territory.

They take second franchisees on to run the new round or second van in exactly the same way as a normal franchisee so they are able to run the business as effectively as possible. The opportunity also puts them in a great position to be able to purchase the franchise from the owner later down the line if they wish to do so.

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.

Colin Pipe is just one of the new franchisees. He’ll be heading up his operation in Luton. With previous experience in the motor trade, Colin was looking for a new challenge when he decided to join Snap-on.

“Being a mechanic, I’ve always worked with Snap-on tools and it’s always been something I’ve liked the look of. I like being my own boss and being able to meet and talk to new people everyday. There’s a lot of banter in the motor trade so you have to be able to keep up!” explains Colin.

“I’m looking forward to the independence that being a Snap-on franchisee will bring me. You feel like your own man and that’s better than being in employment. I’m really busy at the moment but enjoying it too. I’m meeting new people, seeing old friends I used to work with and getting to work in different areas. At the moment I’m still trying to get my head around everything but I’m looking forward to getting stuck in,” adds Matthew.

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 joining forces with the best.
