One of the best actions you can take if you are considering owning a Matco Tools franchise opportunity is to go on at least one ride-along with a distributor. By the end of the day, you’ll know if this is the job for you. There is no better way to get a sense of what this business is really like; no matter what your previous experience has been in the automotive business. Your first impression of the truck will be that it is much more than that; not just your truck but also your office and a store filled wall to wall with the best quality tools in the automotive industry.
As you roll along on your first ride along, the Matco business owner may describe your first stop. They’ll usually know everybody at that stop by name and have a good relationship with each of them.
As you approach the shop with your ride along distributor, you’ll notice some people will stop what they’re doing.
