Driver Hire Nationwide
Looking at the numbers, you can see what makes Driver Hire a leading franchise brand in the UK. Their average turnover in 2017/18 for a single unit was £1,180,450 – three times the 2018 national franchise industry average of £400k*. Average net profit for a franchise is more than £120,000 per annum.
Driver Hire is a five-time bfa HSBC ‘Franchisor of the Year’ award winner, and has been a finalist twelve times over the last thirteen years.
The Driver Hire network supplies thousands of satisfied customers each year (major logistics companies, builders’ merchants, parcel carriers and local authorities) with a flexible workforce of temporary and permanent drivers and logistics staff. It’s a fast-paced environment where quality service and sales activity are paramount.
Driver Hire franchisees reflect a wide spectrum of working backgrounds, from which relevant skills have been gained. Whilst some have worked in either recruitment or the transport sector, others have run their own business, worked as accountants, in education, IT, retail and even banking.
Over 30 years Driver Hire has developed an excellent understanding of how to train and support their franchisees. After initial training, an area manager regularly visits the franchisee’s office and actively helps them grow their business, tailoring their support accordingly.
Over 90 staff at the Bradford head office provide support in marketing and PR, IT, national accounts, HR, training, finance and more.
