If there’s one thing Snap-on knows how to do, it’s turn heads. Autumn 2019 is set to go down in history for the world-famous man-in-a-van franchise as it launches a new franchise package – open to the entire country.
The aptly named ‘Jump Start’ package will enable prospects from all walks of life – and of all ages – to join the tool giant for less than half of the original start-up costs. Coupled with an enhanced training and support programme, the low-cost, high value franchise option is expected to meet growing demand amongst millennials and first-time franchise owners alike.
“We ran a special limited-time promotion in 2018 where we lowered the franchise fee for certain areas of the UK. The uptake of that offer was overwhelming, and we received an influx of enquiries from people who had all the makings of great franchisees, but who, until that point, just hadn’t been able to raise the required start-up funds. Many of those who joined us through the 2018 promotion have gone on to be top performing franchisees in their first year.
We realised that there’s a real hunger for the autonomy of business ownership, particularly in millennials, but that financial barriers were preventing them from progressing. We’ve spent the last six months working out how to bring this opportunity back to the market in a way which means every single person can potentially benefit, no matter where they are in the country. I’m incredibly proud that we’ve made this a reality.”
The package is available across the UK, and the only condition applied to the new offering is that new recruits must be able to train and launch their franchise by 30th March 2020. Following its unveiling on social media and the brand’s own website, Jump Start received over xx enquires in xx days – proof, says Law, were it needed, of the excitement and popularity surrounding the launch.
“I’d been a Snap-on customer for years and had always been interested in the franchise opportunity, but it was the promotional price that encouraged me to finally decide to just go for it. I think it’s an incredible opportunity for people like me, who might be on the fence about investing in a franchise. It’s also a chance for younger people, or those without the necessary savings, to achieve their dream of being their own boss. For me, personally, it enticed me to pick up the phone. I know that the investment would have still be worth it, but I feel really lucky to have been in the right place at the right time, so that I could take advantage of the offer.”
