Revive! is a multi-award winning franchise offering a tried and tested route to building your own multi-van SMART repair business in the automotive sector.
The company has always been determined to set high standards for the SMART repair industry and provides franchisees with the tools and training they need to build and grow successful businesses.
Many mobile franchises are based on ‘a man in a van’, but Revive! has evolved this model - its top-performing franchisee runs a £1 million-plus turnover business with 10 vans and 19 employees.
Revive! has a clear profile in mind for new recruits - it’s looking for ambitious, dynamic candidates who want to grow a business.
Could you be the next revive! success story?
You need to be business-minded, commercially astute, organised and an excellent communicator. If you want to paint and repair vehicles yourself, then a Revive! management franchise is not for you.
If you’re hungry for success, Revive! can provide you with a business model that, if followed, will enable you to build a substantial business and an asset to sell in the future.
Guidance and support throughout your business journey are provided by the Revive! ‘dream team’, assembled over the years from the franchise industry’s elite.
Helping you attract, train and retain the best technicians. Revive!’s recruitment techniques, industry-leading certified technician training and career development programmes are proven to develop and engage top-performing staff.
Helping you work ‘on’ your business. The company’s bespoke, ever-evolving business management system simplifies your admin, provides powerful data for benchmarking and enables you to drive profitability in your business.
Helping you win more business. Revive! will show you how to build a core base of repeat work in your area, supplemented by its booming national accounts programme servicing four of the big seven dealer networks.
Helping raise awareness of your business. The company’s national motorsport sponsorship demonstrates the credibility of your Revive! business to dealers in your local area - you can invite your best customers for corporate hospitality at one of the BTCC events.
Support doesn’t stop after launch. Revive! helps with each stage of the business, working with franchisees as they move from trainee to rookie and beyond through the Revive! franchisee journey.
The company helps franchisees as they take on their first employee and begin to grow their businesses with a range of support available.
Revive! runs regular peer to peer meetings with franchisees at a similar stage of their franchisee journey, regional meetings with input from suppliers, dedicated High Performers’ events, (including external speakers for the larger franchisees), as well as an annual conference.
Franchisees can access the Revive! communications platform on tablet or phone as well as on a desktop or laptop, with access to a wide range of supporting manuals, including product information, HR documentation, supplier information and offers, as well as training modules.
The company’s accelerated business plan course is an ongoing part of Revive!’s tailored support unlocked by franchisees reaching High Performer status. It offers a guided ‘planning for growth’ programme with mentor support
Eight franchisees joined the programme last year, which culminated in a trip to France to present their plans to their fellow franchisees and the mentor panel, as well as spending some time relaxing with their peers enjoying good food and fine wine tasting.
The numbers stack up
Demand. More than 50 per cent of the UK’s 37.5 million vehicles have damage to bodywork or wheels.
Regular repeat work comes from relationships with local dealerships and Revive! national accounts contracts, complemented by repairs for private car owners in your region.
Investment. To set up your new business, you will need to invest £32,000 plus working capital. Revive!’s bank approved business model enables you to borrow up to 70 per cent of the total initial investment, including the projected working capital.
Returns. The Revive! business model is proven to generate six-figure incomes and offers almost unlimited potential earnings with multi-territory expansion.
The company gives you the opportunity to drill into the figures at a one to one meeting with franchise director, Cathryn Hayes.
What the franchisees say
“The business development team at Revive! head office challenged me to look beyond being just a man who paints cars and recognise my inner management potential.
“My light bulb moment came after I closed a deal with a local dealership. I came out of the meeting buzzing and realised winning business and growing my company was all I wanted to do. I no longer wanted to be the best SMART repairer in the team - that’s what my lads are there for.” Steve Thatcher, Revive! Portsmouth.
“During my army career, it was always about teamwork, with an underlying respect for the rank that meant people rarely failed to meet the challenges given.
“I have always tried to adopt an inclusive style, enabling the team to buy into a shared vision. The team are all at different levels, so trying to understand what they need to develop and what makes them tick is critical.
“Celebrating our success, but also learning from our errors, has made us stronger. The team at Revive! Swindon is a competitive bunch and are driven to exceed the previous months’ results, not only because they can achieve a bonus, but they can also see the opportunity growth provides in terms of investment.” Stuart Brierley, Revive! Swindon.
