Darren Batterbee, has been building himself a career at Snap-on for the last 13 years. As a former Darren Batterbee - Franchise Developerfranchisee, Darren decided to progress to an even higher role within the Snap-on network so took on the role of Franchise Developer and now spends his time working with and training brand new Snap-on franchisees.

Darren is a shining example of where being a part of Snap-on will take you if you have the drive and motivation to push yourself forwards. Who knows where he’ll go next?

“New franchisees spend their first year of business working with me. I spend an initial five weeks working with them all day every day and then look after them until they get to a point where they are able to run a successful business,” explains Darren.

Snap-on is the world’s number one professional tool brand. They are the leading global manufacturer and distributor of tools for the professional technician. Franchisees deliver gold-standard, premium products to technicians up and down the country. Snap-on’s fantastic business offers you the chance to be your own boss whilst being supported by an elite team of industry specialists.

As part of Snap-on’s initial and ongoing training and support, Franchise Developer’s like Darren take the franchisees straight out of training and into the field, walking them through business ownership step by step to make sure they’re not left in the dark after the initial training sessions at Snap-on’s dedicated training school in Dallas.

“Working with the franchisees is great. When they first come out of the training they’re like rabbits in the headlights! It’s a big change for them but we take a lot of the worry away. After the initial five weeks, I revisit them at least once a week and I’m on the end of the phone whenever they need my help or support. I love it when a new franchisee comes in and then handing them over to a Sales Developer after a year when they’ve got a great business under their belt,” adds Darren.

Snap-on offer an outstanding training and support programme designed to launch and grow your business quickly and with maximum impact. Before you even turn on the engine of your custom built mobile store, there is an exclusive territory full of professional tool users just waiting for you to call in. You don’t have to wait for the customers to come to you because we find your customer base before you even start. Our aim is: to empower you with the tools for success.
