Snap-on Tools is the franchisor for a unique business format franchise that uses franchisees in mobile vans to sell high quality tools and equipment to professional mechanics. The franchisees bring the tools and equipment to the mechanics at their worksites so that the mechanics do not lose time shopping for tools. One of the features of the business format is Snap-on prescribing the level and variety of inventory to be carried by the franchisees. Snap-on argues that it has the knowledge and experience needed to assure that of view. Do you think that specifying the franchisees’ inventory mix is a crucial component of the business format?
