Q:

What is a Harbor Freight franchise?

A:

As of 2014, Harbor Freight Tools does not offer franchises. The company owns all of its stores and operates a real estate department that assesses potential locations for future stores.

Each Harbor Freight Tools store carries a full array of power tools, such as cordless drills and miter saws. Stores also stock a wide selection of hand tools, such as screwdrivers, wrenches and pliers. Two other key product lines include welding tools, such as arc welders and helmets, and material handling tools, such as hand trucks and dollies.

Harbor Freight Tools products are offered through a variety of channels to complement in-store retail sales. Orders may be submitted online, by phone and through a mail-order catalog.
