The past year for Driver Hire has seen the company grow in more ways than one. In the 2012/13 financial year we’ve introduced eight new franchisees to the Driver Hire network. With a number of new offices opening this brought the current total of Driver Hire offices to 101.
What’s more the average turnover for offices with a full year’s trading is now £704k an increase from the 2011/12 average of £691k. This is helped by the fact that 57% of offices showed growth during the year with 15 offices finishing the year with a turnover of over £1m.
Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s CEO comments “We’re really pleased with the growth that the business has shown at a time of uncertainty within the overall economy. This is testament to the drive and hard work of our franchisees, their team and head office staff.”
Moving forward into the new financial year, Driver Hire has introduced a new online fuel efficient driving training programme called eFED and is going to introduce further additions to the online suite later in the year.
