Together, our dedicated franchise team provide our franchisees with a comprehensive toolbox of daily support which help fast-track their business operations.

Amanda Hilario, franchisor

Since 2019, Screen Rescue has been a full member of the QFA (Quality Franchise Association) and in September 2020, Amanda was invited to sit on the board of directors and remains committed to promoting ethical franchising and its code of conduct.

This is a very exciting year ahead for Screen Rescue, who have already been nominated in six of eight QFA Virtual Franchise Awards 22, which opened in May.

In addition, new British Standards for windscreen repair and equipment compliance are fast approaching and so franchise exclusivity has been secured across the UK for use of the next generation, most technologically advanced digital equipment ever developed.

This ensures Screen Rescue continues their lead position as the best equipped Commercial Windscreen & Glass Repairs franchise in the Commercial Repairs industry.  

There has never been a better time to join Screen Rescue.  

          

Case studies

"Hi, I'm Keith, Screen Rescue Stevenage franchisee" ​ ​

"Welcome to my Q&A Spotlight!" ​

"I live in the heart of Stevenage and operate across all SG postcodes. Here, you'll learn more about the steps I took to become a franchisee. I couldn't wait to start my Screen Rescue business!"

How did you hear about Screen Rescue?

I’d been looking at various automotive franchise opportunities for about six months. Screen Rescue responded quickly to my enquiry via Franchise UK and stayed in touch with regular contact.

Were there any challenges you had to face pre-launch?

Everything was in place to onboard back in March on what became the first lockdown day! Fortunately, I was able to continue in my old role during those strange months.

What other support was given in the second and third lockdowns?

Before flexi-furlough came in, my clients were serviced by a sister territory Business Manager – it was unprecedented support and just one of the many benefits from operating next to a sister territory. More recently I was able to visit my own clients.

You’d visited the Olympia franchise exhibition, was this helpful?

To be honest, I was unimpressed with the information available, and came away with nothing more than what you can find on websites. Exhibitors were knowledgeable, but I felt some were on a hard sell.

What support have you received from the franchisors?

Aside from my day-to-day support, Amanda helped me to switch my bank funding over to a Bounce Back loan with lower, better payment terms. This helped my cashflow even more.

What are you looking forwards to achieving the most in your franchise?

I'm looking forward to building a stable business and earning a good reputation off my own back for the work I do for my clients. And like us all, I want to earn a decent income! I know with my hard work and Screen Rescue's help, this will happen.

What attracted you to a Screen Rescue franchise opportunity?

From the outset I was impressed with the information available – the openness of information and the level of support offered. There was no hard sell, which I liked. It was my choice. ​ ​

Why are you going into business now, at this chapter in your life?

After 30 years in my last role, I needed a new challenge and feel very comfortable within the motor industry. My franchise is my career now; it’s my future.

What would you say to those thinking about investing in a franchise?

When purchasing a franchise, make sure you have the back up and support of the franchisors and they have time to help you because starting any business can be scary at first. I've been guided every step of the way - I only wish I'd done this sooner!
