Snap-on Tools is a U.S.-based global company headquartered in Kenosha, Wisconsin and has been named Entrepreneur’s top tool franchise for over 10 years, has been recognized by Franchise Business Review as a Recession-Proof Franchise, and is a member of the elite Franchise Business Review Hall of Fame. Snap-on Tools, as the leading innovator, manufacturer and marketer of high-end tools and equipment for professionals, powered through the health and economic challenges of the pandemic and continued to serve its loyal customers, as it has throughout its 100+ years of existence.

Essential to the Essential. Snap-on’s commitment to what it calls "Essential to the Essential" is a phrase that hits right at the core of what Snap-on Tools is all about, according to Tom Kasbohm, director of franchising. “Snap-on has a legacy as an innovative manufacturer and productivity solutions provider that services technicians in the bays where critical work is done,” he said. “Snap-on is an iconic brand well-recognized by the makers and fixers that keep our nation moving forward.”

During the past year's upheavals, we all became more familiar with the term “essential workers.” Snap-on played an important role in supporting essential workers in countless ways to keep the transportation infrastructure running—for deliveries of critical goods and services, the operation and maintenance of emergency vehicles, and helping ensure healthcare and other essential workers had reliable transportation to get to and from their homes and places of business.

“Snap-on Tools franchise owners demonstrated to the entire world they could find a way to serve their customers even in the midst of one of the greatest health crises the world has seen,” Kasbohm said. “I am proud that our 100-year-old company that has persevered through wars, recessions, and countless other crises, once again was regarded as essential to the essential workers."

Proud to Support Veterans. Snap-on places a lot of pride in being an American manufacturer and is firmly grounded in its core belief in patriotic duty. Both the military and Snap-on are mission-driven organizations, so it’s no wonder that there are hundreds of Snap-on Tools franchise owners who previously served in the armed forces. Snap-on is a proud member and sponsor of VetFran and a founding member of the IFA. “At Snap-on, we value the hard work and sacrifice of our veteran franchise owners,” said Kasbohm. “We are honored to have hundreds of veteran franchise owners who bring their commitment, skills and service to our Snap-on Tools franchise system.” The Snap-on Tools franchise offers extensive initial training, financing for those who qualify through Snap-on Credit, and incentives for honorably discharged veterans.

The #1 Tool Brand in the World. The company has more than 58,000 products and operates in more than 130 countries. Globally, Snap-on has over 4,500 franchises. A Snap-on Tools franchisee sells exclusive, premium products that ranked number one in every category – Hand Tools, Power Tools, Tool Storage and Diagnostic Equipment – in a recent independent survey by Frost & Sullivan of U.S. automotive technicians. Snap-on Tools franchise business owners enjoy the #1 market-share position in the industry, and Snap-on products are universally recognized by professionals as the absolute highest quality.
