“It Is Canada’s Only MOBILE Construction/Industrial Supply Store!”

The LGI Mobile Franchise is designed to capitalize on the growing construction, manufacturing, maintenance and resource based industries. Our clients in those industries are embracing the products and more importantly the convenience and money saving service the LGI program offers!

Getting connected to a high potential franchise has never been easier.
• Low Cost of Entry – As little as $75,000
• Very quick ROI
• Solid hands on initial training and ongoing support programs
• Fully integrated business system

We are not looking for “buy a job employees”, but rather business partners who want to earn a greater than average income while building business equity for eventual sale or transfer. This is for someone that wants a fun and energizing business, marketing high margin product lines that are consumable, and constantly in demand with a unique sales and delivery system.

If you are someone who is motivated to create success as an independent operator through hard work and passion for what you do, This Is For You!

The LGI® Mobile Franchise is an onsite one-stop-shop offering the best products & customer experience in the industry today.

The LGI® Mobile System exceeds expectations with direct, on-site business to business support for our customers that cannot be done from the typical bricks and mortar store/warehouse.

What our newest franchisee has to say;

“With over 25 years of experience and success in sales and customer service, I decided it was time to build a business of my own. After a lot of research, the LGI Mobile program became the obvious choice for a lot of good reasons.” Rene Longo – LGI Franchise Partner – Richmond
