PIRTEK USA, an on-site and retail hydraulic and industrial hose service provider, announced robust growth at the end of 2021 by signing new franchise agreements and opening new locations by the end of the year.
The franchisor’s 2021 expansion yielded 14% growth over 2020, PIRTEK said in a press release.
The company was also listed number 105 on Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 ranking, up from number 145 the previous year.
In 2021, PIRTEK signed franchise agreements to bring the brand to Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Atlanta; Houston; Wilmington, North Carolina; and Ashville, North Carolina.
PIRTEK also opened locations in Elyria, Ohio; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Oshkosh, Wisconsin; Springfield, Missouri; and Louisville, Kentucky in the fourth quarter of 2021.
These new signings include PIRTEK’s seventh location in the Atlanta metropolitan area and its sixth location in the state of North Carolina. PIRTEK also completed four resale franchise agreements in Florida with Tim Kelly, a former PIRTEK USA employee now turned franchisee.
PIRTEK onboards potential franchisees who put customer service at the forefront of their mission, and it welcomes driven individuals from any industry, regardless of technical experience. An initial investment for PIRTEK ranges from $201,400 to $869,300. Franchisees can expect training and support as well as exclusive territories.
Dean Akin, a Texas-based franchise owner with locations in San Antonio, Pearland, Baytown, Houston, signed an agreement in 2021 to open his fifth location in the Houston area. “I’ve been proud to grow with PIRTEK,” he said in a PIRTEK press release, “because this franchise has provided an opportunity to make a positive economic impact in communities with a recession-resistant business, helps keep essential businesses up-and-running with 24/7 services, and has a strong reputation within several industries, such as agriculture, construction, manufacturing, and defense.”
The only industrial franchise brand of its kind in the United States, PIRTEK team members are always available to provide on-site emergency replacement of hydraulic and industrial hoses, thanks to the company’s specially equipped mobile service vehicles.
