Revive! Gogledd Cymru Launches in North Wales

Revive!, the UK’s leading SMART vehicle paint repairer management franchise  has added the North Wales territory to its network.

Revive! | Eifion WatkinsFormer head teacher and schools inspector Eifion Watkins has opened in North Wales bringing a top-quality Welsh speaking mobile service to car dealerships and private motorists in the region.

Eifion had always planned to retire from teaching at the age of 55, so with retirement from Ysgol Gynradd Bodern looming, two years ago he set about planning the next phase of his life.

Retiring completely wasn’t an option. He wanted something completely different that would keep his brain active, restore his work-life balance and provide the opportunity to build a family business. The more he looked into franchising the more appealing the business model became.

Eifion said:

“I’ve always had an interest in cars and was looking for opportunities in the automotive industry. As I looked into possible management franchises, Revive! ‘s name kept popping up. I was attracted to their professionalism and longevity of the brand  which is endorsed by the numerous awards they’ve won over the years. For me it was the perfect match. Revive! is in the right industry and I have the transferrable management skills they were looking for.”

Cathryn Hayes, director of franchising at Revive!, commented:

“We have been looking to expand into North Wales for several years now and are delighted to welcome Eifion into the Revive! family. His management background in education and determination to build a business for his family’s future are exactly the qualities we look for in a new franchisee and as a local  Welsh speaker he will be fully equipped to engage with the unique demographics of his territory."
