A Matco Truck Could Be Your New Office!
August 7th, 2018
If you love working with tools and are looking to switch things up in your career, Matco might just have the answer for you! This week on PowerNation, Matco brings in one of its mobile tool stores and gives you details on how you can go into business for yourself. Katie sits down with franchise owner Sean Daniels and gets into how it changed his career for the better giving him more flexibility in his schedule!
Matco provides all the training needed. Director of Franchise Sales, Allen Plunk, stops in to talk a little bit about what's involved in the process. First up is the qualification stage, then it moves on to identifying your route. Territory gets surveyed and you can drive around and check it out. From there they send you the product that you can load in your store. As of now, there are about 1,800 stores across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.
After those processes are complete, you head to the Matco Headquarters in Stow, OH for a 2-week classroom training that involves things like point of sale systems, sales training, and what you can expect on your route! An instructor spends time with you on your route making sure you have everything you need for yourself and your customers.
Matco also supports veterans and has special programs in place to help get them into business. For more information head to gomatco.com
