Owning a PIRTEK franchise is now easier than ever.

Pirtek has TWO different Franchise Tiers available now.

Tier 1 Full Franchise Tier 2 Man-in-a-van

The world’s leading fluid transfer solutions company has recently rolled out its Tier 2 program to enable more entrepreneurs to start franchises.

The unique program provides individuals who may have not met all the resource requirements for a standard franchise—which includes a Service & Supply Center and multiple Mobile Service Vehicles—with a mobile-only option to start. The Tier 2 franchise is then on track to grow into a standard, Tier 1 franchise in three years. Have a look at the different options.

Tier 1 Hydraulic Hose Franchise Business

These full-service franchises include a brick-and-mortar store, with a trade counter, a workshop, a warehouse, an office with that employs a team of staff members, and vehicles to provide service on-the-go. With a Tier 1 Franchise you will be allocated a large territory to operate within. Tier 1 offers you a bigger facility to support customer requirements while the walk-in trade counter opens up sales and customer opportunities with walk-in customers.

It is this model that has made Pirtek the world’s leading supplier of premium fluid transfer solutions.

The cost to open a Tier 1 franchise starts at around R3M, and we look for franchisees with a net worth of R1.5M.

Tier 2 Hydraulic Hose Franchise Business

The standard, Tier 1 model will continue to exist alongside the new program. Franchisees under the Tier 2 plan will have full access to the training and administrative support from corporate headquarters – the same that all other PIRTEK owners currently enjoy.

These smaller industrial franchises focus on mobile repair and sales. In this Tier you will run a fully equipped mobile service van operating as a fully stocked workshop and sales centre. They do not include a brick and mortar store, so Tier 2 costs less to get started.

Reduced Start-up Costs

The new program enables entrepreneurs to access one of the country’s top franchises at a much lower point of entry – only R1 500,000 including a Franchise Fee of R 50 000. Instead of setting up a service center, a franchisee can get started with just one vehicle and a place to store inventory. The cost of inventory is between R150,000 and R250,000.

Another benefit of Tier 2 is that it accepts franchisees with a net worth of R2 000,000, much less than the Tier 1 requirement.

Spreading out the Cost

The goal for each Tier 2 franchisee is to acquire a second vehicle after the first year, along with a fully staffed and outfitted Service & Supply Center at the end of three years. The franchisee’s exclusive territory will expand with the acquisition of each Mobile Service Vehicle.

“This is the equivalent of spreading out the full entry cost over a three-year period, rather than investing it all up front,” Goss said. “An aspiring franchisee is now able to build up a customer base and get a better idea of where to locate the service centre later on. The Tier 2 program provides entrepreneurs with a lot of advantages.”

The only franchise of its kind in the Africa, PIRTEK provides hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services. There are 24 PIRTEK Service & Supply Centres and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles throughout Africa. Globally, PIRTEK has more than 400 locations and 2,000 Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries around the world.

“This new program supports our standard franchise offering by providing current franchisees a new avenue for growth and expansion, in addition, it opens the door to business ownership for a wider group of new entrepreneurs.”
