What is Mac Tools?
1. Mac Tools is a mobile tool franchise where franchisees operate a truck or van equipped with displays of the tool inventory on a route of assigned stops with approximately 325 customers of the products.
2. The stops will include automotive aftermarket businesses, service stations, independent garages, car and truck dealerships, and non-automotive businesses such as cycle shops, lawn mower shops, airports, marinas, machine shops, factories, farm implement dealers or repairers, commercial agricultural businesses, and other commercial users of tools and shop equipment. The customers at the stops are professional mechanics and others who will use the products in business.
3. Mac Tools has manufactured products and offered distributorships (without any franchise fees) for the mobile distribution of professional hand tools and equipment to professional mechanics for over 70 years. In 1980, The Stanley Works (now known as Stanley Black and Decker, Inc.) acquired Mac Tools, Inc., which became a division of The Stanley Works.
4. The Mac Tools division began offering franchises for routes located within the state of Kentucky on March 31, 2007, and in all states commencing November 2010. No new non-franchised distributorships are being offered.
