Revive! celebrates in style

Revive! Franchisees from all over the UK met to celebrate their achievements in 2015 and outline their ambitions during 2016 at their annual conference.

Managing director Mark Llewelyn opened the conference by reflecting on a proud 2015, which saw the company earn Investors in People status, before outlining a growth strategy for 2016 based on growing national accounts.

He said, ‘We’ve had a great year and there have been some really outstanding sales results. As the only accredited network of mobile smart repairers offering a UK wide coverage we are in a strong position, but we can’t rest on our laurels. We must keep on raising our standards and ensure we all deliver consistency of service and quality that our national account customers expect.’

Throughout the day franchisees also took part in specialist workshops on aspects of sales and technical skills, before the conference ended with a suppliers’ showcase hosted by LKQ Coatings, 3M, Akzo Nobel and Mirka.

Meanwhile, Franchisee of the Year 2015 Award went to Nathan Holmes and his team at Revive! Cambridge for achieving 49% sales growth. Ben Allen from Revive! Bishops Stortford was presented with the Award for Business Expansion 2015 for growing his business year on year by 79% while the Single Van Franchise of the Year 2015 Award went to Bruce Memory, owner of Revive! Shropshire for achieving growth of almost 50%.

In addition, Russell Hudson, owner of Revive! West Lincs, was named Franchise Team Player of the Year, and Louise Evans, senior accounts and payroll officer, was presented with the award for Outstanding Head Office Support.
