Avoid High Startup Costs with a Tool Distributor Franchise

Starting a new business can often require a significant investment of finances, time, and other valuable resources that entrepreneurs must manage carefully. While traditional brick-and-mortar stores can present a challenge in this area, some franchise opportunities, such as becoming a tool distributor, can prove to be more affordable to get started. For traditional storefronts, the additional costs of acquiring real estate and constructing or redeveloping a building can quickly outpace the investor’s means if they are not careful.

Even after the initial phase is complete, the business owner will likely receive monthly bills in the form of utility costs, mortgage, and property taxes, not to mention other additional expenses typically associated with running just about any business, such as inventory management, the hiring and training of staff, and maintaining a customer-friendly environment – to name a few.

This is part of why some entrepreneurs have chosen to start a tool truck franchise as part of an established brand instead of following the path of a standard brick-and-mortar store. As a mobile tools dealer, they can combine the convenience of traveling a route to bring their inventory directly to customers with the efficiency that saves plenty on business costs. With a “store on wheels” to travel throughout their area, tool dealers are able to arrive and initiate transactions with customers when they are ready to buy.

However, choosing just any mobile tools franchise can mean leaving substantial growth potential unrealized. During our 100+ years in the industry, Cornwell Quality Tools has demonstrated time and time again what it takes to start a mobile tool truck business that can become a preferred option for professional mechanics in need of our products. Our many years of experience have helped us realize what areas of the business are most critical to our tool dealers’ chances of success.

We use this information to guide those who franchise with us as they set up their venture, ensuring they get as much as possible out of their new mobile tools business investment. Cornwell began as a family-owned business all those years ago, and continues as our legacy to this day. Everyone at Cornwell Quality Tools is eager to welcome motivated professionals to our family of franchised Cornwell dealers.

Initial Investment Savings in becoming a Tool Distributor

As mentioned, becoming a mobile tool distributor with Cornwell means not having the significant financial obligations associated with purchasing, developing, and opening a storefront building that many other industries rely on. Not only is the commercial real estate process often an expensive one, but it can also be a time-consuming one. Going back and forth with real estate professionals, bank lenders, sellers, and other parties involved in the transaction usually demands significant energy and attention. Even after all this, you’ll still need to dedicate plenty of resources to actually get your new business up and running.

Mobile tool franchise owners typically spend less upfront when launching their businesses. With your investment primarily focused on your tool truck and the inventory you’ll be stocking within it, you can contribute a larger share of your available capital toward getting your new business off the ground with positive momentum. Operating a mobile tool business also grants owners another advantage, as they can establish a regular schedule to bring products directly to customers when they are ready to buy.

Meanwhile, most storefronts are reliant on waiting for a consumer to decide on a purchase and travel to the business location while hoping the store they’ve chosen still has the necessary products available to buy on-site when they get there.

By franchising with Cornwell, you can open a new mobile tool business for as little as $164,525. After signing our franchise agreement, you can also gain access to the training and support resources we have provided our tool dealers over the years to help them elevate their businesses. These efforts have gone a long way in preparing them for life as a Cornwell dealer – even if they join our brand family with no experience in the mobile tools industry. As a result, we’ve become very comfortable welcoming new investors, regardless of their background.

We only require a few key initial investments to start your new mobile tools business so that you will be ready to go as a member of our team. Your Cornwell mobile tools truck and initial inventory provide you with the products customers in your area need and the means for you to deliver them directly to them. Your startup costs also cover the computer system that helps you plan your daily routes, track and manage your inventory, and maintain the proper level of customer service for your business. Cornwell even offers additional financial flexibility and incentive programs for qualified candidates.

If you are searching for a franchise opportunity that won’t weigh you down with expensive real estate acquisition and development costs, then becoming a Cornwell tools dealer might be the right investment for you!
