About the Franchise

The comprehensive and sought –after range includes hand tools, power tools, tool storage, garage and diagnostic equipment. Snap-on has been named a top non-food franchise in the USA, UK and Australia for many years. Authorised dealers in South Africa purchase tools at discounted prices and resell them to a primary customer base comprising of automotive and aircraft technicians, in an exclusive territory.

Dealers will require a panel van type vehicle, to be approved by Snap-on Africa (SOA) to showcase their tools in, and to deliver a personalised, professional service. The dealership expansion programme allows dealers to grow by either adding a second van to their existing territory, or by purchasing an additional territory.

Training is the cornerstone of this business, and new dealers spend a rigorous first week at head office in Durban, learning the basics of the business. This is followed by in-territory training carried out by an experienced business development manager (BDM) who accompanies dealers on their route for an initial period of two to three weeks to train them in the day-to-day aspects of the business.

The BDM and key product specialists, offer training and support to the dealer on an ongoing basis at regular meetings to develop the dealer’s business and offer advice on all aspects of the business.
