Matco Franchise Glossary

Posted by Nicole Gennarelli

With a career change comes a new list of things to learn. We’re here to help with some of the most common terms you’ll come across upon starting as a new Matco Tools franchisee.

Starting a new business comes with its share of challenges and questions. We at Matco pride ourselves on providing our new franchisees with all the support they’ll need to succeed – that’s what makes us a family.

Whether you’re a new franchisee or you’re simply considering starting your own franchise with Matco, you’re bound to come across terms that you’re not entirely familiar with. That’s why we’ve come up with the following glossary that defines some of the most common terms you may not have heard of before.

This post can serve as a handy reference – take a look:

Franchisee: The franchisee is the owner of an individual franchise. That’s you.

Franchisor: That’s Matco, the corporate franchise seller. You’ll use our branding, our tools, and our advertising all to your advantage as the franchisee. By joining the Matco family, you’ll be able to take advantage of our proven business system, increasing your chances of finding success.

Assets: These consist of your equipment, supplies, products, and other physical items associated with your business. When you’re ready to retire years down the line, you’ll be able to sell these. Your ability to build equity in a business as you grow it is one of the most appealing aspects of being your own boss.

In-House Financing: This means you can finance your investment and costs directly through Matco, rather than going through a bank. Even if you’re not sure about the strength of your credit, we have many flexible options, so there may be something available for you. There’s no downside to seeing what may be available.

Pre-Approval: You can apply for pre-approval on a financing plan through Matco right online. By entering some basic information into our 100% secure system, you’ll be able to find out what type of plan you’re qualified to receive.

Franchise Agreement: When starting with Matco, you’ll sign a franchise agreement that outlines both your responsibilities as the new franchisee and ours as the franchisor. It’s a document you’ll want to read carefully and have your attorney or accountant review with you as it contains protections for you and your rights as a franchisee. Matco’s is a ten-year agreement, and after those ten years, you’ll need to renew the agreement.

AronDavis_TruckSunlight_resizeThe Mobile Franchise: Our franchisees are the proprietors of mobile franchises – this means that as a part of the Matco family, you’re not tied down to a brick-and-mortar operation. This has a number of benefits – first, you don’t have to own or lease expensive real-estate property. As well, instead of requiring your customers to come to you, you can go directly to your customers. Your exposure will increase, your hours will be flexible, and you’ll be able to run your new business the way you want.

The Route: As a new franchisee, we’ll do our best to start you out on the right foot. Your route will be made up of hundreds of potential new customers – generally, professional technicians who are required to purchase their own tools to perform their jobs. Those customers are surveyed by one of our Matco Local Managers, and these customers will be put on the list of calls in your Exclusive Territory. This means that you won’t be competing with other Matco Franchisees – the customers will be all yours.

No employees: Day-to-day, your business will depend and rely on the hard work of one person – you. That means you’re your own boss, and don’t have to worry about managing a staff. Of course, we’re there to support you in any way necessary.

Tools & Equipment: Or, your product offering to your new customers. Matco rolls out hundreds of new and exclusive products annually and offers more than 22,000 of the highest quality tools and products in the industry. We’re trusted by our customers because we help them work harder and smarter every day.

Training: Matco’s training services are unmatched. Whether you’re new to the industry or a seasoned veteran, we’ll take the time to make sure you know everything you need to know to be successful in your new business venture. You’ll receive training before you begin, and we always offer continuous training as your business matures. In addition, our existing franchisees are always happy to offer help to the new members of the Matco family.

National Advertising: Name recognition is never a problem for our franchisees. Matco’s national marketing and advertising promotes the brand with campaigns that span television, social media, Motorsports and industry publications. We don’t charge our franchisees advertising or royalty fees, freeing up your dollars to grow your business on the ground.

Business plan: As you’re first starting up, it’s important to develop a business plan. Writing a business plan enables you to prepare yourself for running the business. What are your expectations? How will you meet challenges as they arise? Since Matco writes many of our own loans, we know what needs to be in your business plan, so we’ll be able to offer plenty of help with this process.

Franchise Disclosure Document: Under federal law, you’ll receive a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) at least 14 days before signing a franchise agreement. Matco, as the franchisor, is required to provide you this uniform document, which will tell you all about the franchisor, their corporate history, their audited financial statements, their past and current legal issues, dispute resolution, renewal, termination and transfer information, the programs they offer, how many franchisees they have in their system, who the franchisees are and how they can be contacted, what franchisees have recently left the system, how franchisees are distributed throughout the country, the costs associated with purchasing a franchise, copies of any agreements you would be required to sign and even financial performance representations which you and your accountant or attorney can use to get an idea of the average sales volume of a franchisee.

Time Payment Account: This is one of the major ways you’ll collect money as a franchisee. A Time Payment (TP) Account is an account through which your customers will be able to purchase products on credit, and can then pay for them over several weeks or months. TP accounts are one of Matco’s best sales tools – your customers will enjoy that they can purchase a new tool without spending the money that day.

It might look like a lot to learn, but with Matco’s support every step of the way, we know you’ll catch on quick.

Your Spouse: A Franchise Business Partner for Success

Posted by Nicole Gennarelli

How to Have a Strong Support System at Home or on the Road.

Matco Tools FranchiseeStarting a franchise is a big decision that not only affects you but your family as well. It’s necessary that both you and your spouse are on the same page when it comes to starting a franchise. At Matco Tools, we involve your spouse from the very first day. From attending training sessions at our headquarters in Stow, OH to helping stock your store every night, your spouse can be involved every step of the way.

Whether your spouse wants to be on the truck with you going from shop-to-shop or behind the scenes handling the finances, your better half can become the other half of your business.

So how can your spouse participate in your Matco experience? He/she can assume many different roles.

1.) The Emotional Supporter – Having someone at home who has a positive attitude and provides emotional support is just as helpful as having a daily partner on-board the truck. Knowing that your family believes in you and this journey makes the tough days easier. Your team of motivators helps keep you focused on doing your best every day.

2.) The Promoter – Having your spouse be your store promoter is a fun way to get people on the truck! Matco will provide you with promotional flyers, but finding creative ways to get technicians out to the truck doesn’t hurt. Some spouses bake treats while others run fun contests on their truck and business Facebook page. No one can turn down free cookies or prizes!

3.) The Book Keeper – Some spouses prefer to stay behind the scenes instead of being face-to-face with customers. As a Matco Tools franchisee, you’re responsible for making your sales, keeping your inventory stocked and up-to-date, maintaining customer relationships, growing your business and taking care of your finances. Although Matco provides you with the tools and software to make this an easy process, this task still takes time. 

Tool Truck Franchise

Your spouse can keep the finances organized while you focus time on the other business duties at hand.

4.) The Facility Manager – There are many daily tasks to accomplish, so you may need some extra help. Your spouse can assist in keeping track of inventory and ordering new products. They can also help you tidy the truck and keep it in tip top shape. Your customers are likely to buy from a store that is organized, because they can easily see all of your products.

5.) The Sales Team – Some spouses want to hit the road with you and help sell tools! Having a partner that rides along with you in the truck and hands out the promotional flyers at the shops is a great help. Whatever he/she chooses to do, your spouse can be your best business tool on your route.

Ready to Get Behind the Wheel?

Whether your spouse decides to be involved on your daily route or prefers to help at home, it’s important that they’re informed and involved. Being on Team Matco means getting to spend time with your family and involve them in your day-to-day activities.

To see real Matco families in action, watch the Partnering with Matco Tools video. Here you will see a couple that hits the sales floor together, and others that discuss the importance of being emotionally supportive.

Tool Franchise Owners Come From Different Backgrounds: Greatly Contribute to Their Success

Posted by Gina Zimmerman

NO AUTOMOTIVE BACKGROUND? NO PROBLEM.

Matco Tools offers so many people the opportunity to start a new adventure. The path on that adventure to become your own boss can often lead you to unexpected places. Learn more about some of the types of career paths that have led to Matco franchise ownership, and how they are as varied as the people who are behind the wheel of a mobile tool truck.

Here are a few examples of interesting career changes and their success stories:

The Funeral Director

CMatco Distributorraig W. of Shreveport, LA, went to school to become a funeral director and held this career for six years. Growing tired of the long hours, having to work nights and spending holidays away from his family, Craig found himself looking for other options. After leaving this position, he began working in the uniform industry, but found that working in a corporate environment wasn’t the best fit for him. With that, he decided to give business ownership a try and began exploring different franchise business opportunities.

While working in the uniform industry, Craig encountered Matco distributors at auto shops and began to speak with them about their work. It was these experiences that propelled him to begin doing his research on other mobile tool companies in the industry, but with the first opportunity coming from Matco Tools, he jumped in headfirst.

Not knowing what to expect when he first got started did not stop Craig on his path to success. Craig was Matco’s number one rookie distributor his first year in the business and remained one of Matco’s top distributors.

And all of this comes without having any prior experience in the tool industry.

The Retail Manager

Matco Tools - FranchiseeKevin V. of Stevensville, MD, was putting in long hours as a retail store manager. He was frustrated since he wasn’t seeing a dime more in his paycheck or receiving any appreciation for his effort. Looking to start something of his own, Kevin began to search for a solution.

The biggest challenge he faced was finding something he could do on his own that wouldn’t require an overwhelming start-up cost. He wanted to be able to work for himself and still be profitable relatively quickly. That’s when he looked into a Matco Tools franchise and found the solution to his problem. It seemed so well thought out, thorough and affordable that he believed owning a franchise was the perfect decision. Plus, Matco offered a great in-house financing program - another great benefit.

Kevin has grown his start-up franchise into a successful business. He sees the direct results for the effort he puts in and is rewarded in a way that he’s always desired.

No longer “working for the man,” Kevin is his own man now.

The Bakery Sales Manager

Dan BurkettDan B. of Grove City, OH, worked for a wholesale bakery bread company as a sales manager before becoming a Matco franchise owner. He worked in that field for 20 years before getting tired and wanting a change. He managed different routes and sales people, but at the end of the day, what he wanted most was independence and to reap the rewards of having his own business.

Dan started to look into tool companies and talked to all of them. He found that, of all the organizations her explored, Matco impressed him the most. He felt Matco had such a great training program and support that he knew he would need to succeed. Add in the start-up financing options and he was sold.

Dan had very little experience in the automotive industry, yet within a year’s time had gained such a broad understanding of Matco products that he was able to build trusting relationships with his customers.

5 Ways You Can Help Your Spouse As They Start Their Own Franchise Business

Posted by Gina Zimmerman

Sometimes people find themselves in need of a change. Maybe the current job isn’t working out the way that you originally hoped. The hours you work are not ideal, and the day drags by because you’re doing something you no longer love.

The only thing that is harder than experiencing this feeling is watching your spouse go through it and not be able to help. Or can you?

Often when a new franchise owner joins the Matco Tools team, they are strongly supported by their spouse. And we don’t just mean that they become business partners. There are a number of ways that loved ones have supported Matco franchise owners from the very beginning.

Here are the 5 most common ways that spouses support our franchise owners while they start the journey to achieving their dreams.

#1 They Ask the Important Questions

There is always a need to reflect when making a big decision, like buying a franchise. By sitting down together and coming up with a list of questions, couples are not only able to address their concerns up front, but have a meaningful discussion on the possibilities and changes. Discussing these important things together allows the pair to come to a thoughtful and united decision.

#2 Experience the Business

Many spouses prefer to take an active part in the business itself simply by showing up while the owner is at work. Getting to see first-hand what the owner does allows the spouse to relate to the challenges and victories that their partner experiences.

#3 Participation

Actively engaging with the elements of the business allows spouses to assist their significant others in reaching their goals. Many spouses participate by attending business reviews and sales meetings. Some even ride-along with their significant others and are more involved in day-to-day sales and bookkeeping.

#4 Schedule

Another great thing about owning a Matco Tools franchise is that it provides owners with an opportunity to build time into their schedules to attend some of life’s most significant moments. Coach your child’s football team, attend those really important dance recitals, hang out in the backyard with your family. This business also allows spouses to schedule alone time with their partners. It’s important to make time for each other outside of work and take a mental break now and again.
