Revive ‘Game-Keeper Turns Poacher’ as Head Office Manager Buys a Franchise

"We are always on the look out for top quality candidates to become franchisees." - Terry Mullen, Recruitment Director, Revive!

What better endorsement for a franchise than when the business development manager reaches into his own pocket to buy a territory!

That’s exactly what’s happened at Revive!, the countries leading SMART* repairer.

Denzil Evans (34) has been with the company for just over six years starting as a technician before becoming the training manager and moving to his present post as business development manager 18 months ago. Now he’s bought his own Revive! franchise and will be setting up the mobile cosmetic paint repair business in Northampton in January 2010.

Said Denzil: “I know the set-up here inside out and have no hesitation in buying my own Revive franchise. I’ve seen the success of the business model first hand and have all of the skills I need to do the job. I am confident that with focus and hard work there’s a lot of profit for me to make. Being my own boss has always been one of my ambitions and I can’t think of a better business opportunity than Revive!.”

So why doesn’t Denzil just take his painting skills and set up on his own, without the financial outlay of buying a franchise?

“Working with Revive enables franchisees to buy into a much bigger set up with the opportunity to earn far more than the initial investment and ongoing annual management fee. A significant proportion of our contracts are national accounts won by head office. All of the franchisees benefit from this work giving us the opportunity to work for big name dealerships including Ford, Alfa Romeo and Mercedes. There’s a real sense of family at Revive which means that Revive technicians working in adjacent territories are happy to help each other out at busy times and the ongoing support from head office is second to none,” he explained.

Commenting on Denzil’s decision, Revive recruitment director Terry Mullen said: “We are always on the look out for top quality candidates to become franchisees. I’m delighted that Denzil has decided to invest – he knows the business model inside out and will be very successful. From a head office point of view we are obviously sad to lose him but happy he will be bringing his considerable skills into the branch network.”
