Revive! has once again been named as a finalist in a national award for the support the company gives to its franchisees across the UK.
Held each year by the British Franchise Association (bfa), the bfa/HSBC Franchisor of the Year Awards are regarded as the highest industry accolade and celebrate the best in UK franchising. Revive! is just one of three companies to be shortlisted for the 2018 Bfa/HSBC Award for Franchise Support.
Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner to be held at the ICC in Birmingham on 28 June.
Revive! first won this award in 2010. Since then its network of accredited smart repairers has grown to 60 franchisee repairers employing over 159 technicians with 150 vans on the road.
The award recognises exceptional levels of ongoing support delivered by head office to its network. Revive! provides all of its franchisees with the training, business advice, technology and mentoring necessary to grow and sustain a successful business – not just be a man in a van.
Revive! managing director Mark Llewellyn, said:
"We are of course delighted to be shortlisted for this award which recognises the hard work the Revive! management team has put in to first identify and then invest in the people, technology and systems necessary to take Revive! to the next level.
As the UK’s largest network of accredited smart repairers we have built our reputation on offering industry leading customer service and support. Delivering top quality support to our franchisees underpins everything we do – they represent our brand day in and day out. By giving them the tools, training and ongoing mentoring to build the biggest and best business they can we are ensuring that Revive! continues to thrive, innovate and drive up the reputation of both the smart repair industry and franchising."
