Anthony, who previously specialised in wealth management, spent a lot of time assessing different franchise opportunities before taking the plunge. He selected Revive! as its scalable business model offered a good potential return on his investment.
Just two months into his new role, Anthony has already beaten his forecast turnover and has a good pipeline – he is booked solid for the next two weeks.
However, it is not just about the numbers. Revive!’s supportive network and training coupled with on-going assistance and advice played an important part in Anthony’s decision to take on the franchise. He is also inspired by the success of co-franchisees who have been established for longer and own a fleet of mobile car repair units.
“Running a mobile vehicle repair business is a real step-change from wealth management,” he explains. “Whilst I wanted to be my own boss, I needed to know that I wouldn’t be alone. With a Revive! franchise you really do have the best of both worlds. The opportunity is there to build the business and take on your own employees, but there is a lot of support and camaraderie from other franchisees, as well as from head office.”
Anthony is glad he made the break from the rat race: “From a physical point of view, repairing cosmetic paintwork damage on cars is certainly more demanding than stockbroking. But at the end of the day I get real satisfaction from my work, and can see my skills improving every day. There is nothing like the independence of working for yourself. I have high ambitions for the future of my franchise and know that Revive! will be with me every step of the way.”
