Accelerate into business with an award-winning £1m franchise

Operating in the rapidly growing SMART repair industry, Revive! franchisees run large territories and manage their own team of technicians who repair damage to car paintwork including bumper scuffs, minor chips and the refurbishment of alloy wheels.

What is Revive?

Revive! is a multi-award-winning franchise offering you a proven route to building a multi-van, £1m+ turnover business – and an asset to sell in the future. Managing a team of technicians who deliver repairs to public as well as trade vehicles, your role is to develop your business and grow to become the No1 choice for SMART repairs locally.

With large trading areas that can accommodate at least six vans, you’ll enjoy plenty of room to grow without requiring further investment in more territories. We’ll show you how to win new customers and scale up your business – our largest franchise has set itself a target to reach £2m turnover in coming years.

Regular, recurring income comes from the relationships you build with local dealerships as well as our national accounts programme – we work with several of the largest dealers in the country, with work from their branches passed to the local Revive! franchisee.

Combined with effective marketing to attract private car owners too, the marketplace is substantial – and rising rapidly.

The numbers stack up:

Demand: more than half of the 37.5m vehicles on the UK’s roads have damage to their bodywork or wheels.

Investment: banks know and like our business model and will finance up to 70% of your total start-up cost (subject to status).

Returns: proven to deliver over £1m turnover and six-figure profits for successful franchisees, this is a rewarding franchise with excellent returns on investment.

Revive! was founded by Mark Llewellyn, who remains the managing director and leads the senior team providing support to franchisees.


Business support is where we excel. With a head office team comprising some of the best-known names in UK franchising, you can be confident that you’ll be guided on your journey as your business grows.

Your comprehensive initial training and ongoing support includes:

Technician recruitment & training We have proven techniques to attract quality staff for your business, with career development programmes and industry-leading accredited training which will engage your team.

Business management systems Bespoke systems simplify your admin and provides powerful benchmarking data to help you drive profitability and work on, not in, your business.

Marketing & brand awareness You’ll be shown proven methods for winning new business, including fully managed digital marketing campaigns and access to our national accounts customers.

In addition, Revive! has established national brand awareness campaigns including BTCC sponsorship and a 5* Trustpilot rating which add credibility to your business locally.

We also provide comprehensive support on IT and credit control, along with personalised visits from your dedicated business development manager who will help you create and follow a roadmap to success.

Do I need experience?

Successful Revive! franchisees are commercially astute, organised and excellent communicators, able to build rapport and relationships with local dealers. A passion for providing outstanding service is essential as your business will be operating under a brand renowned in the industry for its focus on quality. Our outstanding support means you do not need to have experience in the auto industry: your people skills are all-important.

If you want to paint and repair vehicles yourself then a Revive! management franchise is not for you. Innovators are welcome but franchisees must be able to follow the tried and tested systems in the Revive! business model, which lead you to success.

Single van to multi-award-winning franchise

Founded in 1994, Revive! has become a nationwide business and has thrived since it was first franchised. From humble beginnings, the brand is now recognised as a leading operator in mobile paint repair and offers multi-award-winning support to franchisees. Mark Llewelyn started the business 25 years ago with a single van, operating from his parents’ house. As the business grew, he rebranded as Revive!, with a strong focus on customer service and technical excellence.

This approach led to working alongside the Institute for the Motor Industry and other bodies to drive up standards and establish the leading nationally recognised qualifications within the mobile paint repair sector. Today the top-performing franchisees enjoy a turnover in excess of £1m, the brand has a 5-star customer rating on TrustPilot, and works with an increasing number of national dealerships providing the highest quality of repairs through its franchise network. Mark has also twice been elected as a board member of the British Franchise Association by UK franchisors, demonstrating his stature and reputation for excellence in the sector.
