Revive! Belfast named Start-up of the Year

Mobile repairer Revive! Belfast has been recognised as the best start-up business in Northern Ireland by a prestigious awarding body.

The firm, which was launched in 2021 as part of the UK-wide Revive! Auto Innovations franchise network, came out on top against six other shortlisted businesses located across the country to be named Start-up of the Year at a glittering ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast on 5 April.

Owner Mark Pronger and his team will now attend the UK-wide FSB Business Awards ceremony at the National Exhibition Centre.

Pronger said: “To be recognised as the best up-and-coming business in Northern Ireland is a fantastic achievement, especially as there are so many forward-thinking enterprises in our country.

“This win is a testament to the hard work of the team over the last couple of years, and hopefully marks the beginning of a long and successful journey in us offering a brand-new vehicle repair experience to the people of Belfast and beyond.”

The firm’s turnover surged by 140% in 2022, and this year has registered back-to-back record sales in February and March.

Pronger added: “We have seen amazing growth in a short period of time, but one of the beauties of operating on a mobile basis is the fact that we’re not bound by a specific location; I know there is a lot more we can do to serve communities across Northern Ireland.”

Revive! Northern Ireland can conduct repairs on a mobile basis to perform cosmetic and paint work repairs, which usually take only two to four hours to complete.”
