Mac Tools have started the year in the right fashion with the announcement that three new franchisees will be joining their UK network.
Colin Childs has been an automotive sales manager for eight years and is now distributing Mac Tools products in Lowestoft. “I am now 43 years old and I have worked in the motor trade industry as a sales manager for many years,” he says. “I feel the time is now right for me to be able to take greater control over my own future. I chose the Mac Tools franchise because it provides me with the right balance between income and leisure time.”
Phil Brown had been an automotive technician for nine years when he decided that it was time to become his own boss. The company’s quality and service convinced him to run his own Mac Tools franchise in Swindon. “I used to be a technician and found out about the Mac Tools franchise through our Mac Tools distributor. The first few weeks on the road have been hard work but I am enjoying it, it’s been a real eye opener,” says Phil.
Dean Fitzgerald’s brother–in-law operates the Mac Tools franchise in Kent and seeing him fulfil his dreams made Dean realise that it was time to exchange the wheel of his lorry for that of his new Mac Tools van in Coalville.
He completed Mac Tools’s comprehensive initial training along with Colin and Phil, before receiving hands-on support from his regional franchise manager as well as regular support from a dedicated team of staff at the European headquarters in Sheffield.
“The training was really great and it provided me with a real grounding of knowledge. My first few weeks out on the road have been brilliant as all of the garages are really receptive,” explains Dean.
