Franchise Comparison

There are positive aspects of all four automotive tool franchises here. At Matco, we like to think of ourselves as the “good guys”, but that’s just because our franchise owners tend to be well liked and corporately we strive to be very supportive of our franchisees. We can’t compare cultures here, but we do have some information from competitive web sites and Franchise Disclosure Documents to provide this franchise comparison.
