Driver Hire franchisees celebrate record-breaking December sales of £11.6m

Would you like to become a recruitment entrepreneur? Driver Hire is looking for new franchisees on the back of a record year...

Driver Hire’s network of franchisees broke a company record in December 2016 when the month’s sales topped a collective £11.6m, a 9% increase on the December of the previous year.

The transport and logistics recruitment brand claims that by the end of December, a third of its franchisees had passed the £1m turnover market for the current financial year.

As a result, 2017 is expected to be Driver Hire’s fourth record-breaking year in a row.

Coventry-based franchisees Tony and Linda Lucas are an “exceptional” example, having recorded a 43% year-on-year increase in December sales due to “increased seasonal demand from parcel delivery companies”.

Established in 1983, Driver Hire provides staff to the transport and logistics industry via its network of 85 franchised offices.

Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s chief executive, said: “Whilst 2017 is certain to be unpredictable, our franchisees begin it in a confident mood.

“Driver Hire is providing the exact type of service the UK economy needs right now and we’re looking forward to another successful year.”
