The Skookum Tools franchise plan has been established with a view to sustainable success. Your area may be next on our strategic plan – lets talk!
Skookum Tools philosophy is to make every franchisee as successful as possible. Each franchise owner is granted a large defined territory sufficient to permit ample opportunity to grow the business while providing a high standard of personalized service to area customers.
Skookum Tools has established a corporate brand which extends to each franchise. Franchise owners are responsible for their own advertising, however, promotional templates for flyers, letterhead, email stationery and business cards are provided.
Prior to opening a franchise territory, a Skookum Tools franchisee is immersed in a comprehensive 10 day ‘training camp’, including several days of theory plus hands-on experience in the field. Ongoing support and periodic training sessions on specific product groups are also offered.
Skookum Tools operating history shows strong potential for 6-figure incomes.
The Skookum Tools prototype achieved profitable status within the first year, however, mainstream franchise literature suggests the average business takes 3-5 years from start-up to do so.
No, Skookum Tools charges no royalty fees of franchise owners.
Given the mobile nature of the business, overhead costs are relatively low ranging from $1500 to $3500 per month.
Operating any business requires common sense, commitment, the ability to communicate with customers, a friendly helpful attitude and a strong work ethic. Previous experience in customer service, basic sales, and/or in any ‘trade’ would be helpful.
Skookum Tools…’the tool store at your door’ has developed a unique format, system and marketing plan for the distribution of abrasives, cutting tools, safety supplies, shop supplies and related consumable products to industrial users.
