ChipsAway Automotive Repair Franchisee Interview
ChipsAway - Testimonials
A great deal can happen in a year, as ChipsAway franchisee Alistair Hoy can testify. Last year, Ali opened a ChipsAway CarCare Centre (a fixed-base workshop) only six months after his initial business launch as a ‘man and a van’ operation, in line with his original business plan. In January, he took on his first employee to help cope with escalating demand, then in July, when he hit £10,000 per month turnover, Ali decided to take on a second employee – and all this before reaching his first year milestone! “I had big plans for my ChipsAway business from the start,” Ali confirms. “Now there are three of us in the team, the next step is to increase turnover to £20,000 per month. It’s a challenging target, but I confidently expect to achieve a quarter of a million pound turnover business within the coming year.” Ali’s previous background was in sales & marketing. He had held senior roles in companies operating in the USA and Asia and was never interested in downsizing to a small owner operator business in the long term. On the other hand, neither was he in a position to invest up to £200,000 in one of the major franchise brands.Alistair Hoy
