Revive! Auto Innovations Gloucester wins prestigious award

Revive! Auto Innovations Gloucester has been named the best newly-launched business in the South West of England.

The business, which is owned by married couple Jai and Reena Patel, clinched the coveted Consumer Services Start-up of the Year accolade at the South West Start-Up Business Awards.

The judges were impressed with the company’s fresh approach to repairing vehicles in and around Gloucester, which offers repairs at the customer’s home or workplace.

Meanwhile, the company achieved 231% sales growth in its second year of trading and is the fastest growing business in Revive!’s UK-wide franchise network to achieve an annual turnover of £240,000.

Jai Patel said: “There are so many excellent start-ups in the Gloucestershire area, so to be nominated for this award is a real honour. To achieve this feat alongside my wife Reena has made it all the more special, even if it can be challenging to run a business with your partner sometimes.”

Reena Patel said: “We knew that launching the business during the Covid-19 pandemic was a risky move, but we have worked hard to make it a success despite the odds being against us at time.”
