Franchise Opportunities: Selection Process

Selection Process

Are you right for Pirtek and is Pirtek right for you?

Becoming a Pirtek franchisee would be one the biggest commitments you will make in your life.  With all our sales being resales the financial commitment is considerable, see Financing section, and just as important is the life style change that comes with running a 24/7 emergency service.   It is essential that you know what to expect of Pirtek and it is also essential that you have what it takes to become a success.  Becoming a Pirtek franchisee is very much a two way process.

You need to share our values in terms of customer service, commitment to our business model and demanding service, quality and health & safety standards.   It is a technical/engineering business hence you need to be happy working with and managing a team of technicians and support staff.  You may have had your own business and have experience of financial management.  If you haven’t run your own business we need to see that you have the ability to learn new financial skills. 

Pirtek has a very established network of franchisees and only a handful leave the network each year.  It is not a ‘numbers game’ for Pirtek and our approach to finding franchisees that are right for Pirtek is very much a tailored one-on-one process.

The process will start with you registering your interest.

We will then provide you will some introductory information about Pirtek together with the details of the Area Operations Manager that covers your area of interest.   It is then up to you to make contact to discuss.

If your skills and expectations match that of Pirtek and there is a realistic opportunity the process will then entail some paperwork with the Application Form and Non-Disclosure Agreement progressing through further meetings, Profiling and Assessment exercises.

We would not expect any detailed negotiation between the prospective franchisee and the franchisee looking to sell until these initial stages have been completed to the satisfaction of all concerned.   Our Commercial Manager will then become more involved regarding the potential purchase of the Pirtek franchise, the legalities and the likely involvement of bank funding.

Prospective franchisees can realistically expect the process to take between three and six months from registering your interest.
