Prior industry experience is NOT necessary. Depending on the franchise option you’re interested in, net worth requirements range between $250,000 -$750,000. The most important requirement to starting your own PIRTEK franchise is a willingness to be hands-on with the business.
What are the available franchise tiers?
Tier 1 franchises are traditional brick-and-mortar stores. Typically, franchisees will have a full staff of 5-7 employees and start the business with at least 3 Mobile Service Units ready to help customers on-site.
If you’re not ready to make the investment in a Tier 1 franchise, a Tier 2 business is a great way to begin your PIRTEK franchise. Tier 2 franchises start business exclusively using Mobile Sales & Service units, e.g. company vehicles, and later expand into Tier 1 franchises. With an estimated initial investment starting around $162K, this is a great option for investors who want to start an industrial franchise but don’t have the target investment of a Tier 1 business. The best thing about a Tier 2 franchise is that it’s a scalable investment: these franchisees should plan on converting into a Tier 1 franchise within 3 years. Ideally, a Tier 2 franchise will allow them to generate the income and establish the customer base that will make this expansion possible. Costs included in the Tier 2 franchise investment include:
- Mobile Sales & Service Units
- Training expenses
- Computer systems
- Five months of operating expenses.
