Snap-on is a leader in the industry and our tools are universally recognised by professionals as the absolute highest quality in the industry.

Snap-on Incorporated, our parent company, and affiliates have more than 22,000 products, operate in more than 130 countries and employ approximately 11,000 people worldwide.

Snap-on in the UK was founded in 1965 with its first Branch Office in Kettering, Northamptonshire. A little over a decade later, Snap-on Tools had 100 UK Dealers operating from four Branches, this expanded to seven Branches by the late 1980s. Today, we have over 400 franchises operating territories in the UK and Ireland.

A Snap-on franchise is a mobile tool store you own, selling the #1 tool brand in the world directly to professionals in your exclusive territory on your protected list of calls. It's a proven business model we've honed for more than 90 years and we are always looking for people as good as our tools.



Here are just a few of the benefits of owning a Snap-on Franchise:

  • More than 4,300 franchises worldwide
  • Most in-demand product in the category
  • Financing available through Snap-on Finance
  • Exclusive territory
  • It’s mobile! You go straight to your customers
  • Exceptional training and support
  • Proven franchise model

The total cost of a Snap-on franchise is £73,260 which includes all business set-up costs and your working capital.

We have our own in-house finance group, Snap-on Finance, who offer a variety of financing programmes to finance the majority of the investment with down payments as a low as £7,500  for qualified applicants so you won’t need to go to the banks.

You will need £17,960 liquid capital which includes your £7,500 down payment on the business loan, your working capital and your business start-up costs; we can then finance the rest.
