Your Investment And Rewards

As a Mac Tools franchisee – as with any franchise – your success depends on the investment you are prepared and able to make. That investment will be both personal (time and effort) and financial.

Joining Mac Tools is now even more affordable with the new financing support provided by Mac Tools.

Self-funding option: £15,000 liquid capital and fund the remainder of your total investment of £50,000 through a bank loan. You are awarded our highest trading terms.

Mac Tools funding option: Self-fund only £3,750 of liquid capital plus up to £8,750 bank funding with the remainder of your total investment being funded by Mac Tools. You'll be awarded lower trading terms, but you'll get the opportunity to move to higher trading terms through the franchise agreement.

In both cases you will benefit from great support and receive your branded van and starter stock that you will sell on at a profit.


We have 120 franchisees operating in the UK with a potential UK tools market of over £150 million. Existing Mac Tools franchisees are typically earning gross profits ranging from £50,000 to £75,000 from one territory and there are various territories available across the country. Our territories typically include around 180 automotive locations making it bigger than those of similar franchise opportunities. The opportunity is there for you to build the goodwill asset value of your territory and sell it on as a going concern to an existing or new Mac Tools franchisee.

Your Life As A Mac Tools Franchisee

This is an exciting opportunity for you to be your own boss and work from home; to fulfil that dream of owning your own business.

You will be allocated a territory, with a database of all the known automotive relevant outlets within it and you will then be able to sell directly to customers by calling into their workshops on a regular and reliable basis.
