Established in 1994, Revive! is a leading mobile body shop brand in the UK, with a network of 50 franchisees and over 200 vans on the road, including company-operated technicians to enable coverage for national accounts. Prime territories remain available, many with existing work in place.

With c.40 million cars in the UK and over 50% having minor body work and wheel damage, there is plenty of work available to enable you to build your Revive! business locally. Our simple-to-operate business model is based around a low number of skilled employees doing a small number of high-value jobs daily – minimising travel / fuel.

In 2022, we won Gold in the BFA HSBC Franchisor of the Year awards, as well as winning the Management Franchise award in the Best Franchise Awards. Our franchisees feedback gained us a 5 Star Franchisee Satisfaction rating and we were awarded Platinum status at our Investors in People reaccreditation so you can be assured that our franchise support is best in class.

Franchise Overview

As the business owner you won’t be painting cars, you will be managing your team of technicians, driving your marketing, and building relationships with local dealers to grow your business. Your role changes as your business grows – once established, you will be the leader, working on the business, setting your lifestyle & generating excellent income while building an asset.

You will operate with a 5-star reputation for excellence from day 1; award-winning marketing support; a bespoke app; business mentoring; and a close-knit network of like-minded peers.

Enjoy your dream lifestyle working from home, interspersed with getting out to manage your team of technicians and build dealer and trade relationships.

Serve the domestic, dealership and trade markets in your local area – there is more work than we can supply, from end of lease and general upkeep, to prepping for sale. Your target customer split is 50% domestic / 50% commercial and Revive!’s processes are approved by all the major marques, are electric car-compliant, and are insurance & lease company-approved.

The business model is built around employing a small number of skilled technicians and some supporting admin and sales staff, as you grow from 2 vans to 5 and then on to 10 vans in your first territory. To be successful you must be an excellent leader for your team, adept at managing people and great at communication.

You are never alone with Revive!, we have one of the most experienced and supportive teams of any UK franchise, committed to guiding you and your business throughout the business journey. Benefit from the best marketing and our bespoke App to manage your business. With Revive! you receive all the systems and support you need to make your new business a success.

To start your business with the proven Revive! Auto Innovations franchise model you will need to invest £25K + funding. With a track record of success, we have forged excellent relationships with the major banks where you can borrow up to 70% of the total initial investment, subject to status.


Initial training for new franchisees is comprehensive, covering all aspects of the business, including technical awareness training so you know what is expected of your technicians. Induction and training for the first members of the new franchisee’s team is also included.

Our extensive ongoing training programme includes a wide range of business training workshops and masterclasses including sales, financials, leadership and people-management, as well as on-going courses for technicians at our IMI (Institute of the Motor Industry) accredited training centre.

What will I do as a Franchisee

Our franchisees manage teams of skilled technicians, providing repairs to trade dealerships, the general public and our extensive national accounts programme which includes fleet, insurance and national dealer work.

You won’t be painting cars yourself, nor do you need experience in the auto industry; it’s your people skills, ambition and drive that are all-important. We’ll help you attract high-quality technicians, with accredited training programmes that help you retain them too.
