Who Are ChipsAway?


ChipsAway News Image

ChipsAway was launched in the UK in 1994, and today provides SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair technology to car owners across the country.

With a rapidly expanding network of over 200 franchisees in the UK, we now have the largest network of repair specialists in the UK, who provide high quality, value-for-money repairs to car paintwork, on a same-day basis.

Our specialists work from vehicles fully equipped as mobile workshops, or fixed-base units known as Car Care Centres.

Getting started with ChipsAway


Established for over 25 years, our market-leading car repair franchise makes it simple and straightforward for you to start your own business.

You don’t need any car body repair experience because you’ll receive four weeks of expert, hands-on car repair training at our bespoke facility – accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) – before you start work.

How much will you need to invest to get started?


Your ChipsAway franchise will cost £29,995 +VAT, but with our various pricing options you’ll only need £15,000 +VAT to get started.

How do you know whether this franchise will work for you? Everything is set up for you to succeed from the minute you launch your franchise because although you’ll be your own boss, you definitely won’t be going it alone.

As well as offering practical and technical training in all elements of the service you’ll deliver, we provide a course in sales and marketing, unlimited support from our head office and supply you with a business mentor – an experienced franchisee – who you can call whenever you need to.

The ChipsAway business model can be adapted to suit your aspirations and lifestyle, so the opportunities for you are unlimited. If you’re a motivated individual willing to take on an exciting new challenge, you can enjoy all the benefits of being part of a franchise network and have the chance to improve your future.

The ChipsAway franchise package includes all the essential components for business success, including:
  • Full sales and marketing support
  • IT and accounting systems
  • Technical training
  • Business mentoring
  • Digital marketing and PR support

All of this, as well as the fact our franchisees receive an average of over 1,000 customer leads per year as a result of the national marketing activity done centrally, means you can get up and running quickly and profitably, with the reassurance you’ll have a regular flow of eager customers.

What does success look like?


The beauty of running your own business with ChipsAway is that you define your own success. Some franchisees work from a single van, happy to go it alone and celebrate their own financial milestones. Others wish to expand their network, opening several franchises and employing multiple members of staff. Meanwhile, some engineers opt to set up a Car Care Centre which acts as a HQ for their empire.

However you choose to work with ChipsAway, we’ll help you reach your ambitions.

Behind the scenes with a ChipsAway franchisee


ChipsAway Franchise

He said: “I’ve got two young children and a mortgage, and the thought of not having enough work to keep me busy or bring in enough income was daunting. But speaking to the team gave me all the reassurance I needed that I’d be provided with enough leads to build a successful network of my own. I decided to get involved and I’ve never looked back.

Within six months of becoming a ChipsAway franchisee, Colin had built up a network of customers which sees him repair more than 40 cars per month, resulting in income of over £9,000. For Colin, though, the true benefit of franchising has been the flexibility it allows to be more present at home than ever before.

He said: “My working hours vary around my family, which is a huge bonus. I’m able to pick my children up from school and enjoy a big part of their day, then organise the business admin around their schedule. The improved work-life balance has definitely been the best part about moving to self-employment with ChipsAway. I’m so much happier.

ChipsAway Specialist, Brandon Akerman, Wins Prestigious ‘Next Generation’ 2023 BFA HSBC British Franchise Award

ChipsAway Image

Owner of ChipsAway Exeter and Torbay, Brandon Akerman, was proudly awarded the ‘Next Generation’ accolade – an award which looks to highlight those who’ve achieved so much before they’ve even reached the age of 30.

Brandon invested in his ChipsAway franchise in 2020, aged just 21, after completing university with a drive to work for himself. After just 6 months in business, Brandon expanded into a Car Care Centre (fixed base workshop) to be able to better service the growing demand for car paintwork repairs locally. Soon after this he added a 2nd territory covering the Torbay area with a mobile operation, and has continued to excel ever-since.

Commenting on his win, Brandon said: “I am absolutely thrilled and hugely honoured to receive this prestigious award. It really does make all the hard work, dedication and effort of the past few years worthwhile, and motivates me to strive for even further growth and the development of my ChipsAway business.
I am extremely grateful for this recognition and would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the judges, Head Office support team, my fantastic employees, not to mention my Mum and Dad who have always been my greatest supporters.

This award serves as a reminder that dreams are attainable with perseverance, and I am incredibly humbled by this fantastic achievement. My aim now is to continue to push the boundaries of what I can achieve, and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store – the sky is the limit!”

Pip Wilkins, Chief Executive of the BFA said: “Our huge congratulations to all the winners. We had some fantastic entries this year and these winners really stood out from the crowd. We would like to thank them for being such great ambassadors of the BFA and for representing the very best in UK franchising.”

UK Head of Franchise, Commercial Banking at sponsors HSBC Bank Gillian Morris said: “The diversity of franchising on display at tonight’s awards ceremony – across so many brands and sectors – demonstrates the strength and reach of the industry. Choosing a winner is never easy and I’d like to join Pip in thanking everyone who entered and send our warm congratulations to all the winners on these very well-deserved awards.”
