Run a successful recruitment business with Driver Hire where average net profit levels for the network annual exceed £140k.Watch Video
Franchise territories are currently available in a number of UK locations, including start-up franchises and franchise resales i.e. established businesses offering an income stream and cash flow from day one.
Established in 1983 and franchising since 1987, Driver Hire is a secure, multi-award winning franchise brand with a proven business model for generating high returns.
A great achievement when you consider that the franchise industry average turnover is currently only £400k according to the 2018 bfa/NatWest survey.
The rate at which your business grows will depend largely upon your sales and recruitment activities, but you should aim to achieve minimum annual sales of £750,000 by Year 3 (if you open a business in a vacant territory) and then continue to build sales to £1m and beyond. Of course, if you buy an existing Driver Hire business (a franchise resale), the business is likely to be already be generating healthy sales and profits.
Provided that your fixed costs (staff, premises, finance, and general office overheads) are controlled effectively, then a net profit of between 10% and 15% is typical.
“Becoming a Driver Hire franchisee has absolutely changed our lives! I’ve gained all the benefits of being self-employed: the opportunity to run and grow our business, the freedom it can bring and the ability to make decisions for ourselves. It’s certainly given me things I wouldn’t have had if I’d stayed employed.”
John Griffiths – Driver Hire Taunton franchisee
“Operating at the £1m turnover mark, naturally I’m looking to grow the business even further to maximise its future sale price. The business has changed my life and my family life considerably compared to being employed. The business affords a good lifestyle, but you must put the work in at the start and have a good team around you to achieve this. It’s been a great move and I love what I do.”
Gary Riches – Driver Hire Colchester franchisee
“Buying my franchise was the best career move I have ever made. I love the systems, quality control and high standards that Driver Hire embraces - follow the model, and it will work. I am very proud to be a Driver Hire Franchisee and delighted to have been able to renew my franchise agreement for another 5 years.”
