Many franchisees have chosen to grow their business by hiring a Franchisee employee to assist them in building their business. Although, a Franchisee hiring an employee does not guarantee continued growth it may further spark the entrepreneurial spirit. A successful growth-oriented Franchisee may also have the desire and skills to continue their growth through the purchase of an additional franchise. Contact your local Snap-on Tools Regional Franchise Manager for more information about Additional Franchise opportunities.
Franchisees may hire employees at anytime to assist in their business. We highly recommend that all Franchisees with an Additional Franchise have an employee assisting them with sales so that the Franchise business owner can be off the van to develop their Franchise Store Managers and other employees. Snap-on Tools recommends you consult with your legal and financial advisors prior to hiring employees.
Do you have questions about how to hire employees to assist with your business and how to stay compliant with payroll for all your employees? Many third party companies can answer your questions. For you convenience, we have listed two companies that are familiar with Snap-on Tools and have established relationships with some of our Snap-on Tools Franchise business owners.
Third Party HR Services

Additional Franchise Opportunity
Snap-on Tools Franchise business owners that illustrate consistent growth through utilization of employees, exceptional operational skills, and proven business merit may also have the desire to purchase an Additional Snap-on Tools Franchise. Snap-on Tools encourages interested franchisees to explore the possibility with the local Snap-on Tools Regional Franchise Manager. If an Additional Franchise business is awarded it must be operated under the then current Snap-on Tools Franchise requirements.
Rights and obligations under the Additional Franchise are granted exclusively to the Franchisee signing a contract with Snap-on, not to any employee of the Franchisee.
If you are purchasing an Additional Franchise, you will receive inventory having a franchisee cost of $20,000 at no cost to you. This incentive is designed to assist you in starting your Additional Franchise and provides ongoing continuity in the operation of that franchise. For that reason, in order to earn the inventory incentive you must operate the business under the Additional Franchise for a minimum of three years unless you transfer it to a franchisee approved by us.
