Here at Snap-on, we’re celebrating after taking home Silver and being crowned the number two franchise in the UK by the Elite Franchise 100.

Allowing UK franchisors to duke it out on everything from growth to the support they offer franchisees, the Elite Franchise 100 recognises franchising’s brightest businesses and ranks them according to a broad range of criteria from financial performance and heritage in the industry to their contribution to the community and the way they embrace innovation.

“With more than 50 years’ experience in the British market, a huge network and a truly impressive support package, Snap-on deserves to take home the Silver in the Elite Franchise 100,” said the judges.

The whole team was over the moon at the result:

“Being ranked 2nd in the UK is a very proud moment for us. It means so much to everyone here. Often, people assume that as a big brand, we can just rest on our laurels but nothing could be further from the truth. We’re fanatical about the support we give to our franchisees to help them achieve their own dreams of success. We do that with constant training, innovation in products and systems and by nurturing a network of franchisees who love what they do and are as passionate about Snap-on as we are!” Lisa Law, Snap-on’s National Franchise Manager
