Snap-on Tools named one of the Top 50 franchises for military veterans

According to a report published on the website,, the Snap-on franchise has been named a Top 50 Franchise for Military Veterans and is the sole tool franchise recognized by the World Franchising Network. The report reveals that the second annual ranking by the organization resulted from a survey of several hundred franchise systems that recruit former military as possible business owners.

In an interview, Snap-on Tools Group president of Sales and Franchising, Barrie Young, said, "It's our honor to make a special effort to reach out to those who have served their country. Our chairman and CEO, Nick Pinchuk, himself a Vietnam veteran, has set the tone in recognizing veterans throughout Snap-on, and emphasizing the value they bring to our business. We have a recruiter with a military background, and offer former military franchising incentives. It's our way to say 'thank you' and to offer service men and women a career option when they transition into civilian life." Young says more former military than ever became a part of the Snap-on team in 2010, starting their own Snap-on franchise businesses across the U.S.

Snap-on is, the report says, one of the largest non-food franchise companies in the world, primarily selling its products through more than 4,000 franchisees worldwide. The company has been in business more than 90 years selling the highest quality professional tools one-on-one through its franchisees. (kbp)
