Revive! Auto Innovations' history

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.

Case studies

Michal Lepiarz and Irmina Kowalska: how we invested in our future

The money we saved over the years we could have invested in a house but we decided that investing in a business would be a better idea. Where we were in our lives, we knew we wanted to run our own business. Michal was a very skilled technician and to be able to do the things he wanted to do, he knew he couldnt do it working for somebody else.

He needed help with administration and that kind of thing which we had no idea about, which is where the franchise comes in. Head office have been there for us since day one, they help us with everything. Its not just a phone call, its all the training and other support they offer to help build the business with you.

From employees to business owners

We wondered where we were going to get our customers, how to answer phone calls, how to talk to customers and get more jobs. It was all new territory for us.
But everybody at head office was so dedicated to us, from helping us call and win customers to guiding us in our first week. Most of our customers are regular customers and a lot that we gained in that first week are still with us, so obviously the support we got from Revive! meant a lot.

We won the Developer Gold award in the network, which meant a lot for us as a small business. We felt that all the work and the effort weve put into our business was recognised by head office. It made us proud and want to go further with the business, its really rewarding.

Its an exciting time for us, weve got a new employee starting and well be more focused on management and training to improve their skills.

Network power

The motivation you get from looking at all the other franchisees who are doing the same journey, maybe a little more experienced than you, and how well theyre doing and what great businesses they run, thats really motivating. The support you get from them as well, with their knowledge, you can learn a lot from them.

Sometimes you dont think you can do something, but when you see other people doing it, it makes you think you can do it too.
With Revive!, what you can get and how you can support yourself and build your future is just... limitless.
