Driver Hire Nationwide

Established in 1983, Driver Hire is a multi-award-winning franchise, with a proven business model that generates high returns.  

In the last financial year, 2021/22, the average annual Driver Hire franchisee turnover is £1,230,183 (for a single unit) – close to three times the franchise industry average of £400k*.  Average annual net profit for a Driver Hire franchisee is circa £140,000.  Top performers generate around £3m annual turnover.   

Franchisees run a recruitment business in a defined postcode area, supplying temporary and permanent drivers, logistics and non-logistics staff to local and national businesses that operate commercial vehicles. It’s a fast-paced environment where quality service and sales activity are paramount.

Driver Hire franchisees reflect a wide spectrum of backgrounds. Many had not previously operated a business or worked in the recruitment or transport sectors.  Running a successful recruitment business requires you to be excellent with people, organised, sales-focused and dedicated.      

Over 37 years Driver Hire has developed an excellent understanding of how to train and support their franchisees. This includes comprehensive pre-start training and the support of 70 head office staff with marketing, IT, national accounts, finance, HR and more.  An area manager regularly visits the franchisee’s office and actively helps them grow their business, tailoring their support accordingly.  

Driver Hire is a six-time bfa HSBC ‘Franchisor of the Year’ award winner – winning the top award in 2019 – and has been a finalist 14 times over the last 17 years.
