Expanding local coverage in the Manchester area
A fantastic franchise opportunity in Manchester has enabled our Driver Hire network to get even more local with the recruitment and training services we provide, with the opening of a new office in Whitefield.
Named Driver Hire Manchester West the areas which the new office covers include; Atherton, Prestwich, Radcliffe, Salford, Swinton and Worsley.
The new franchise owners, who are also new to Driver Hire’s franchise network, are Monique Gadd and Glenn Knight. They both have a wealth of business experience in management, customer service and sales.
Before opting to buy their Driver Hire franchise, Monique worked in human resources, event management and financial services. Glenn is an accountant by profession, however most recently he ran his own highly successful removals and storage business.
Understandably, Monique and Glenn – who live in Bury – are highly excited about the purchase of their Driver Hire franchise and the many opportunities it offers. “Driver Hire has a strong brand and an excellent reputation nationwide.” says Monique. “I’m really looking forward to contacting potential customers to tell them how our round the clock, 365 days a year service can help them.”
Glenn adds: “Manchester is a buoyant business area. That’s why we decided to establish our new business here. Because we’re a franchise we can deliver a truly local service backed by the strength of a national company.”
Welcoming Monique and Glenn to Driver Hire’s nationwide network, Graham Duckworth, Driver Hire’s Franchise Sales Director said: “Throughout the purchase process Monique and Glenn’s professionalism has confirmed that they will be a perfect addition to our nationwide network. It’s great to have them on-board.”
This new office opening was one of two great fantastic franchise opportunities made available with the split of the original Manchester and Oldham franchise territory. Driver Hire Manchester has historically covered the whole of the M and OL postcodes since 1989 – a huge area to cover for one franchisee and one Driver Hire office. We therefore created an excellent opportunity for new franchisees to join the network by re-configuring the area in order to capture the potential business we’ve been missing out on. The original Manchester franchisee is now able to concentrate on and grow further the territories Manchester North & Oldham and Manchester South. This means Manchester East is still on the market for a new franchisee to come on board and grow a successful franchise business in the area.
