Autosmart, one of the leading suppliers of vehicle cleaning products to the trade, has signed a new franchisee, Bruce Miller, to its network.

Miller, who previously worked in retail management, has started operating for the franchise in Perthshire, Scotland and is already “looking forward to working in an industry that [he loves] and building a secure future to take [him] through to retirement”.

Established in 1979, Autosmart offers an owner-operator, van-based business opportunity and specialises in range of car products, including truck wash, car polish, and workshop products, which it distributes to a range of clients such as car dealerships and haulage companies.

The vehicle cleaning specialist is a long-established franchise company with a mature franchise network in the UK.  From time to time resale opportunities become available due to retirement; offering “an exciting and rare business opportunity” to invest in a business with an established profitable customer base.

It is also looking to expand globally having recently welcomed several new international franchisees.

Miller discussed his reasons for joining the Autosmart brand:

“I took voluntary redundancy following 19 years […] in the communications sector and decided to seek out a completely new career path, ideally running my own business.

“I took some time out and completed a nut and bolt restoration of my 1965 Austin Healy car and decided to show it off at the annual summer show. I got into a conversation with the Autosmart franchisee for Aberdeen, Frank Sutherland, who was attending the show. He gave me a great insight into the business and life as a franchisee.

“After attending a one-to-one discovery day at Autosmart’s head office, I continued my research with some field days out with neighbouring franchisees and the rest is history!”
