Ken Allison has been running his Revive! business for over five years

Ken Allison is an established franchisee who has been running his own Revive! mobile vehicle repair business in Waltham Abbey for over five years.

Revive! - Ken AllisonIn this time Ken has built his very successful business from one van, to four and he is showing no signs of slowing down as he is actively looking to recruit in his territory.

As a previous delivery driver, Ken came across mobile SMART repairs whilst on the job. Ken commented:
"I saw someone providing a mobile SMART repair whilst on the road and I thought to myself, yes, I would like to do that.

I actually attended a discovery day at one of Revive!’s close competitors where someone told me about Revive!. Following the day I went home and looked them up on the internet. They seemed like a very professional outfit and so I decided to visit Revive! with my wife.

I felt the company was very genuine and I instantly had a good feeling about them. They didn’t hard sell and I felt that they were the right fit for me."

And the rest they say is history.

Ken’s long term goals are to dominate his local territory by putting as many vans on the road as is possible following which Ken will take a step back and take time to manage his business without doing the day to day operations.

Ken stated:
"I started my business in one van with a goal of earning £10,000 in a month. I’ve done that now so I now want to push forward with my business and see where I can take it."

Revive! offer a very supportive business framework for their franchisees and it is ultimately the franchisees success which leads to the success of the entire company. Revive! have focused processes in place to nurture a new franchisee from one van to two and beyond.

According to Ken the best three things about Revive! are:

  • The technical support
  • The national accounts programme
  • The network of franchisees
