Snap-on Tools Franchise

Mobile professional tool sales and repairs

In 1920, a particular wrench could only do one particular
job, but Joseph Johnson had an idea to change that. Along with William
Seidemann, he began manufacturing ten different sockets that would "snap
on" to five interchangeable wrench handles, so that one tool could do
the work of five. The Snap-on Wrench Company's representatives sold
these new products by taking them to the customers at their places of
business and demonstrating their use.
Today, Snap-on Tools franchisees sell far more than just wrenches. They
offer over 22,000 products, including hand tools, power tools,
diagnostic tools, tool storage and shop equipment, but the way they sell
is much the same. Once a week they bring their "mobile stores"--trucks
filled with their products--directly to their customers, which include
car dealerships, mechanics, marinas and airports.
