About Mister Tacho
Mister Tacho sells peace of mind. When Frank O’Keefe formed the franchise Mister Tacho, he adopted the tagline, “Your Repute is our Business”. And ever since, delivering impeccable customer-focused service has been the company’s whole goal.
Mister Tacho understands the complicated rules of the Driver’s Hours Regulations and the Working Time Directive inside and out. This means that when rules change, Mister Tacho makes it its business to know that too. If you own a transport and hauling company, then it is essential to have someone by your side who knows how to analyse the data from the digital tachograph mandated to be fitted in all vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.
Mister Tacho has a very strong reputation in the industry for helping its clients stay compliant with all regulations and successfully passing inspections. Because of its strong customer service and record of success, it has high client retention and referrals.
How does the Mister Tacho franchise model work?
Mister Tacho franchisees care about their customers’ businesses as much as the customers do themselves! They take their job seriously and are on hand to not just download and analyse data but to write a report and explain it properly, providing training and assistance as needed. The company also helps you prepare for appearances before the DVSA examiners and Traffic Commissioners.
What locations or territories is Mister Tacho looking to operate in?
Territories are available throughout the UK, however, locations near distribution hubs would be advantageous. Franchisees are given an exclusive territory where only they can solicit new business, but they are also free to service hauling/transport companies anywhere in the UK outside of other Mister Tacho territories.
What are the franchise terms of agreement and renewal?
The franchise agreement is for five years with no fee to renew.
What qualities make a great Mister Tacho franchisee?
Mister Tacho will provide you with all the training you need to understand the regulations and data from a tachograph machine sufficient to call yourself “Mister Tacho”!
Mister Tacho is looking for people who would be happy to take up the name and wear it with pride.
The ideal Mister Tacho franchisee is motivated, driven, loves details and looking at data and writing reports. They also have the people skills necessary to explain the reports and regulations and build relationships with clients.
There is no specific background requirement, but previous experience in the transport and hauling business would be a plus.
