The Mac Tools franchise opportunity
Mac Tools is a family of business owners and support staff, which means you’ll never be on your own. With over 175 UK franchisees, our business model is a proven route to giving you and your family complete control over your lifestyle and financial future. You can invest from just £15,000 liquid capital, with no ongoing royalties or hidden extras.
A Mac Tools franchise gives you exclusive rights to sell tools from several world-class brands in your local area from a mobile showroom – while providing you with all the tools you need to be a successful and profitable business owner.
Prime territories (trading areas) are available throughout the UK and Ireland.
When it comes to winning new customers, we give you national power at a local level: with multiple sponsorship deals, from television shows to the British Touring Car Championship, British Superbikes and Moto GP circuit, we’re proud to provide exceptional brand support that helps you develop your business locally.
Our local marketing support to you includes free promotional flyers and catalogues; monthly team meetings introducing new promotions; and twice-yearly Tool Fair events for new product launches and exceptional purchasing opportunities.
We’re here to help you from before you launch through to continually win new customers. You’ll enjoy the backing of a brand that’s seen far and wide – and is synonymous with the highest quality tools available.

“My family and I have been rewarded by Mac Tools with trips to America for the last seven years, meaning that we have been able to see a lot more of the world than we would have done otherwise. These rewards are brilliant and definitely offer a great incentive to be part of the Mac Tools franchise network.”
