Mac Tools puts wheels in motion with new franchisees
Tool distribution chain is seeking more recruits to "take the driver's seat" having achieved 25% year-on-year growth
Global tool distribution franchise Mac Tools has ramped up UK growth with the addition of three new franchisees – known as ‘Mac Men’ – Chris Lambert, Dave Hitch and Kishor Dhokia.
Lambert has taken up the franchise venture after spending 13 years in automotive workshops and said the desire to be his own boss “had been growing over the years”, while Dhokia, who previously worked in sales and retail, plans to capitalise on his background to “develop and maintain a good business model”. Hitch, a former electrical and mechanics engineer, has decided to join the brand as a return to self-employment.
Founded in 1938 and part of the Stanley Black & Decker group, Mac Tools specialises in selling high-quality automotive tools and equipment to the trade and claims to have achieved 25% year-on-year growth since 2012.
A member of the British Franchise Association (bfa), the chain has franchise opportunities available across the UK for an initial fee of £5,000 as part of a £50,000 starter packages which includes a five year licence, training, coaching, and marketing support.
On becoming a Mac Tools franchisee, Lambert commented:
“I loved working with the Mac Tools brand in the auto trade, and it was the natural first choice when I looked at franchise options. When I studied the package more closely, the support and training offered by Mac Tools to its franchisees made the decision easy for me.”
