Franchise Package

WHO WE ARE

Why go it alone when you can have the backing of a nationally recognised brand leader? ChipsAway are the UK’s leading minor automotive repair franchise with 11x higher UK brand awareness than our nearest competitor, as confirmed by a recent YouGov survey.

ChipsAway are the originators of the SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair process. As a full British Franchise Association (BFA) member with IMI, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations and affiliation with 3M and BVRLA, you won’t find better quality training, products and ongoing sales and marketing support at any other franchise. 

Established in the UK for over twenty years. We now have the largest network of repair specialists in the UK, who have all undergone specialist training at our bespoke IMI accredited training centre in Worcestershire. 

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR

Are you looking for an opportunity to start a business of your own, but worry about stepping into the unknown and not having enough work to keep you busy? Then a complete package from ChipsAway could be the answer. 

As a ChipsAway business owner, you will visit customers locally in your mobile workshop, offering high quality, value-for-money, everyday car damage repairs, including paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs and minor dents – known in the industry as SMART repairs. With ChipsAway’s flexible business plan, some franchisees develop their business further and operate from a Car Care Centre, with or without a mobile workshop, which can increase both the potential number of repairs that can be carried out, and the average repair value. 

SMART repairs are quicker, more convenient and better value than traditional body shop methods, and we pride ourselves on our five-star TrustPilot rating awarded to us by our customers for the excellent, high quality service we provide. 

EARNING POTENTIAL

ChipsAway guarantee that all new franchisees will receive a minimum of £80,000 of prospective work enquiries in their first year*. Our market-leading franchise has been developed to make it as easy as possible for you to start your own business. You don’t need any experience; we’ll provide all the support you need to make your business a success. 

Our flexible business model can be tailored to suit your ambitions. Running a ChipsAway business means you decide how long you work, and how much work you undertake. If you’re interested in growing your business by taking on more staff or even expanding into multiple territories, we’ll be with you every step of the way. 

As busy as you might be, with the steering wheel in your hands, you can make sure that your free time is your time – whether it’s family time, gym-time or kick-your-feet-up-and-read-the-paper time. 

*The average franchisee received over 1,000 enquiries via Head Office in 2017, which at our average repair value equates to over £80,000

TRAINING PROVIDED

With ChipsAway, you will receive four weeks of expert, hands-on practical training at our bespoke facility – accredited with the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) – before starting work. 

But it’s not just the practical skills you need. We know that not all of you have previous experience running a business, so we also provide Business Mentoring from an experienced Franchisee, and dedicated Franchisee support team member to help you and a business plan template, which you can personalise to match your ambition.  In 2017 the average ChipsAway franchisee received over £140,000 worth of customer enquiries via the ChipsAway Head Office.

Beyond your initial training, we will make sure you have the network of support you need to run your business smoothly. With our ongoing technical advice, unlimited help and advice from your fellow franchisees and invitations to attend our annual Conference or Regional Meetings, our support is unrivalled.

The ChipsAway Marketing Support team provides franchisees with extensive national advertising, including nationwide coverage on TV, and online and offline campaigns throughout the year to raise brand awareness. As a result of extensive national advertising campaigns, including our TV advertising, the average ChipsAway franchisee received over £140,000 worth of customer enquiries in 2017 via the ChipsAway Head Office.

Furthermore, to ensure you are generating interest in your territory, we will help you put together a bespoke launch and marketing plan for your business and provide all the materials you’ll need. This includes leaflets, local advertising, stationery, a personal webpage and an email address, as well as all other essentials, like your ChipsAway uniform. 

With around 250,000 customer enquiries coming in each year – that’s £40million of enquiries – from day one we will ensure you have enough jobs available to keep you busy. It’s up to you, and your ambition, how much work you want to undertake.
