Record Consumer Leads for ChipsAway in August 2016!

ChipsAway, the UK’s original and market leading automotive franchise, is delighted to announce that demand for their services reached an all-time high in August, with a staggering 25,900 consumer leads being sent from Head Office out to the network!

ChipsAway is part of the Franchise Brands plc group which was listed on AIM on the 5th August 2016. Franchise Brands plc has a combined network of over 350 franchisees in 12 countries, but predominately operates in the UK.

This astounding figure is an almost 20% increase from August 2015 and a 5% increase from ChipsAway’s last record in May 2016! It's also the first ever time that this leading brand has reached the 25,000 mark in a single month.

Ella Pugh, Marketing Manager at ChipsAway commented:
"ChipsAway is going from strength to strength thanks to our wonderful franchisees and the top quality services they offer. It gives us great pleasure to announce this news and to watch demand for the brand continue to grow consistently."

These record figures strongly emphasise the need for ChipsAway services in the UK. Through integrated marketing campaigns, which include national TV advertising, ChipsAway has been able to capitalise on the growth of the market.

ChipsAway have been established for over 20 years and is the originator of SMART minor automotive repair technology. The franchise has an exceptional reputation for completing first class repairs on minor damage such as paintwork scratches, minor dents, bumper scuffs and kerbed alloy wheel refurbishment. Repairs are completed within just a few hours and at a far lower cost than traditional body shops, specialists also come to the customer which increases the convenience of a ChipsAway repair. With 69% of the 34 million vehicles on UK roads having 'ChipsAway' damage, demand for the service is higher than ever before.
