New ‘Mobile-Only’ Cartersville Location Expands Pirtek’s Presence In Metro Atlanta

Technician at Pirtek Red Oak starts his own franchise under Tier 2 program

February 01, 2018 // Franchising.com // Rockledge, FL, USA - Pirtek, the world’s leading fluid transfer solutions company, has added a mobile-only franchise in Cartersville, GA, north of Atlanta. Owner Matthew Gary worked as a technician at Pirtek Red Oak in Atlanta before deciding to start up a location of his own.

“I wanted to open the door to a new and exciting opportunity,” Gary said. “I enjoy being part of the Pirtek team, and I’m so glad this option was available to me.”

Pirtek Cartersville operates under the company’s Tier 2 model, which allows a franchisee to keep inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility and to lease two vehicles at a lower point of entry. Under the standard Tier 1 model, a franchisee opens a full Service & Supply Center staffed with six team members and a minimum of two Mobile Service Vehicles.

The plan for Tier 2 franchisees is that they grow into a fully staffed and outfitted Service & Supply Center within three years. Each new Mobile Service Vehicle in the fleet widens the franchisee’s exclusive territory.

“Our mobile-only Tier 2 program has been an incredible success providing a resourceful path to business ownership,” said Glenn Duncan, CEO of Pirtek. “We’re pleased to welcome Gary to our growing family of new business owners.”

Cartersville lies on the northwestern edge of metro Atlanta between the cities of Marietta and Rome.

Gary, who worked at Pirtek Red Oak for six years, has diverse background that includes flooring and structural welding. The biggest draw for Pirtek, he said, is the opportunity to get on the road and interact with customers and potential customers. “I enjoy the work at Pirtek, and I especially like meeting new people and going new places,” he said.

Gary will depend largely on manufacturing, construction and recycling centers for his customer base. Besides Pirtek Cartersville and Pirtek Red Oak, the company has two other franchises in metro Atlanta: Pirtek Dobbins (Marietta) and Pirtek Norcross.

Pirtek is the only franchise of its kind in the United States, providing hydraulic and industrial hose replacement sales and services. There are 74 Pirtek franchises and a fleet of Mobile Service Vehicles throughout the United States. Globally, Pirtek has more than 400 locations and 2,000 Mobile Service Vehicles in 23 countries.
