A second PIRTEK Service & Supply Center recently opened in Maryland, the company announced.
The new PIRTEK Prince George’s center, located at 9213 Hampton Overlook, Capitol Heights, Md., is owned by David Entwistle, who also operates a PIRTEK location in Rockville. Both of his storefronts are centrally located in the state, which makes it easier for his mobile technicians to reach customers throughout Maryland very quickly. The area boasts booming transportation, warehousing and manufacturing companies, such as Posner Industries. There is a constant flow of commercial trucks and transport vehicles to be seen moving about the county.
The new location is opening as a Tier 1 business under PIRTEK’s franchise structure. This requires a franchisee to have a full service and supply center staffed with six team members and at least two mobile service vehicles. PIRTEK’s Tier 2 mobile-only option enables entrepreneurs to start a franchise at a lower point of entry. Under Tier 2, a franchisee can keep the inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility and lease two vehicles. While Tier 2 owners are expected to advance to a Tier 1 location in three years, they also have the option of bypassing this step to open as a Tier 1 model from the beginning.
For David Entwistle, the Tier 1 option suits his personality and his work philosophy perfectly. David is all about building relationships with his customers, and having a physical storefront allows him to be more involved.
