Snap-on No. 1 In ‘Best Franchises To Start For The Buck’ Listing

The Snap-on Tools franchise comes in No. 1 in a Forbes Feb. 27 edition list of the 10 best franchises to start, according to an announcement from the Kenosha, WI-based tool and equipment maker. Forbes determined the ranking after evaluating data from 110 of the most established names in franchising. The methodology was based on average initial investment, total locations, closure rate over the last three years, growth in the number of U.S. outlets in the last three years and the number of training hours as a percentage of startup cost.
