Never run your own business before? No problem
We’ve trained over 430 franchisees in the UK - people just like you. Training starts you jetting off for ten days of classroom-style training in the US where you will learn how to run a successful Snap-on franchise.
You will then return to our UK head office in Kettering where you will meet the staff who will support you on a daily basis and collect your very own custom-built mobile store!
We are committed to making sure you have the best possible start to building your business and, 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 over the following five months. That’s 51 contact days in your first six months!
Support for life
We have a team of over 150 dedicated head office staff to support you in all aspects of the business; from sales and marketing to product, IT and finance. After your six-month on-boarding programme, you’ll find your Franchise Performance Team are there to support you for life!
“The best thing for me is I’ve got the freedom of running my own business but I’ve also got the comfort of knowing there’s always someone there if I need it.”
Steven Scott, Lanarkshire franchisee
Whether you dream of financial security for you and your family, a mortgage free lifestyle, putting the kids through university or just want to spend your time loving what you do, a Snap-on franchise is a way to achieve all that and more.
“I’ve always wanted two things; my own family and my own business. I’m incredibly proud that I’ve achieved both by the age of 32! My business is allowing me to build a future for my family whilst enjoying the sense of freedom and pride that comes with being your own boss. It’s win-win.”
David Hogg, Bolton and Salford franchisee
