Who can be a Snap-on franchisee?
Almost anyone! It’s all about attitude. We look for someone who has great people skills, can build relationships with customers and has a passion for selling. You need to be dedicated and willing to put in some serious effort but so long as you have a great attitude and the motivation, we can give you the tools you need to build a profitable, rewarding business.
Never run your own business before? No problem!
Training starts with ten days of classroom-style training where you will learn how to run a successful Snap-on franchise. Then it’s time to collect your own custom-built mobile store and meet the associates who will support you on a daily basis. Once you’re out on the road, your one-to-one training continues with your dedicated Franchise Developer who will ride with you for your first five weeks. As part of our six-month intensive onboarding process, you’ll then receive a further 31 days of on-van support from a Sales Developer and Business Manager - that’s 51 contact days in your first six months!
Our team of 165 head office associates support you in all areas of your business; from sales and marketing to product, IT and finance. After your six-month on-boarding programme, a Franchise Performance Team is available to help support your business every step of the way.
We love it when our franchisees dream big! Owning multiple territories and several mobile stores is common in our network – some franchisees choose to take on an assistant, some choose to bring family into the business and others have built what can only be described as their very own empire! Whether it’s business planning, funding assistance or the ongoing support you need to take things to the next level, we’re right behind you.
“My plans for the future are simple really – put in the hours and reap the rewards. Next year, I want to buy a second territory which I’ll hire an assistant to run. I love working hard, for an honest wage, and making my kids proud of their old man in the process. Starting a Snap-on franchise was just the change in career that I needed. And I couldn’t be happier.”
Scott Jarvie, West Lothian franchisee
