PIRTEK, as 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.

Gary, who worked at PIRTEK Red Oak for six years, has a 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.

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.”
