The Gadget Refuge Franchise

Filling a huge gap in the market for a high quality guaranteed service to fix mobile phones tablets and laptops, the Gadget Refuge has carved out a very successful business that continues to grow year on year.

The Gadget Refuge was launched in 2018 by Gavin & Tracie Garnett with the intention of creating a successful local business with a business model suitable for growth through franchising. Since our launch, we have successfully developed a very strong reputation within our local area and have now launched our franchise network.

Our goal was simple, to provide high quality guaranteed repairs to the local community. Sourcing and using the best available components for all of our repairs and providing an exceptional service have seen the business grow year on year.

We have examined every aspect of the business and we are absolutely confident that the formula we have in place will work exceptionally well across the UK and we can continue to develop the brand nationally

We are now experiencing unprecedented, and increasing, demand so we are seeking new franchise owners to extend The Gadget Refuge into new territories, creating a fantastic opportunity for those looking to start their own business, with the confidence of a tried and tested business model and brand behind them.

Introducing our first franchisee...

Dan Woodbury joined The Gadget Refuge in December 2020 and since that time he has absolutely excelled, further developing the area where the business was first established.

Dan’s approach to customer service and his commitment in his own words to “being consistent with what Gav & Tracie started” has been excellent.


We are looking for franchise owners throughout the UK and Ireland.

Following a fantastic year of development, The Gadget Refuge now has 10 franchises operating, with a further two in the pipeline as of December 2021.

Training and Support

Initial training is carried out face to face from our head office in Chester, with further instructional videos available to be viewed via our Intranet after the initial training period. We also offer people who are interested in a franchise the opportunity for a taster session, come along and spend a couple of hours in the workshop to see some jobs through from start to finish and get a true feel for what it is all about.

Due to the nature of our business, new products and ever-changing technology is something we have to be prepared for, as common new products reach the marketplace we will ensure all franchisees are provided with updated training material to complement their existing skills and knowledge. A typical example of this would be Apple releasing new iPhone models which typically happens in the second half of each year.

Technical training is also provided from head office during your induction to provide insight into the common tasks we need to perform in day to day business operations such as:

  • Using the repair shop system “My Gadget Repairs”.
  • Ordering spare parts, returning spare parts and managing stock levels.
  • Using the point of sales system for taking payments, creating invoices and viewing reports.
  • Advertising and promotion of your business.

Financial Information

The earning potential of a typical franchise is £40-50K working as a sole operator, however with additional territories bolted on and technicians employed this can grow exponentially.

The Franchise Fee is £14,950 (+VAT), payable upfront with no renewal fees down the line for life.

A Growing Market

The great news here is that virtually every household is a potential customer! In the UK, it is estimated that the spend on repairing smartphones alone is around £2 billion per year and growing. Around 37% of British smartphone owners have damaged their smartphones in the last two years.

Who are we looking for?

Our ideal candidate will have experience of working in a similar setting, although this is not a pre-requisite as full training will be given. An active interest in technology is a must as is being a self-motivated team player, as working with the community of franchisees is something we are keen to promote and encourage.
