Three Driver Hire franchisees – in Brighton, Cardiff and Gatwick – have recently completed renewal agreements securing further five year business partnerships with the leading transport & logistics recruitment specialists.
Franchising for over 30 years, Driver Hire recruitment offices mainly provide temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
Simon Johnston, Driver Hire’s Franchise Development Director commented: “The renewal process, which is free, involves the franchisee producing a five-year business and financial plan, using Driver Hire’s template documents. A meeting is then held between the franchisee and, usually two Driver Hire directors, to discuss the content and the franchisee’s future plans.”
Dave Pollard, owner of the Brighton franchise, said: “Renewal is a great opportunity to review your business. As with the purchase process, Driver Hire’s Group Services support team were both thorough and helpful. As a result I’m looking forward to developing my franchise further over the next five years.”
For both Darran Perkins and Nic Chaviaris, their Driver Hire connections go back further than ten years. They both worked for the previous owners of their franchise before making the decision to invest when the opportunity came along.
“I can’t believe how much my business has grown,” says Nic Chaviaris, owner of Driver Hire Gatwick. “I’ve never had any doubts that I made the right decision. I work with a great team and the business fits in with my family commitments. Most importantly we continue to be a highly successful operation.”
Darran Perkins (Driver Hire Cardiff) agrees. “When it’s your own business, you benefit directly from the effort that you put in. We’re a 24/7 operation, so success as a Driver Hire franchise is about following their well established franchise model combined with a strong work ethic. I continue to make a good living from my franchise – that’s why I chose to renew.”
