Business partners, Richard Bannister and Jane Moses, have bought our established Driver Hire Coventry franchise.
Previous owners, Tony and Linda Lucas, are retiring after seven successful years in charge.
Both Jane and Richard have run their own businesses in the past. Jane’s business was in retail, but more recently she’s worked in sales, marketing and recruitment. Richard’s background is in catering. He owned and operated a chain of local sandwich shops in the Birmingham/Solihull area. He also branched out into catering for corporate events.
“I was looking for a new challenge,” says Jane. “Franchising appealed as a safer route into self-employment. We researched a number of franchise opportunities and Driver Hire came out on top. We’re really looking forward to finding the very best transport and logistics staff for local businesses”
“The Driver Hire brand has an excellent reputation in the recruitment industry. In its 2017 annual customer service, 90% of respondents rated Driver Hire’s customer service as “excellent” or “good”. In addition, 94% of candidates said that they were “proud” to work for Driver Hire. That gives us a great platform for future success.”
Welcoming them to Driver Hire’s nationwide network, Graham Duckworth, Driver Hire’s Franchise Sales Director said:
“We wish Jane and Richard well and look forward to supporting and helping them develop their Driver Hire franchise.”
The UK’s largest specialist supplier with a nationwide network of franchised offices, Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff to local and national organisations in both the public and private sector. If they’re short of staff – perhaps because of illness, holidays or seasonal demand – Driver Hire will supply them with a suitable replacement.
