With a 100+ office network in April 2017 they’d completed their fourth consecutive record breaking year. They’re also a bfa HSBC 2017 ‘Franchisor of the Year’ award-winner. Their performance is certainly no flash in the pan, Driver Hire has been a bfa finalist for eleven of the last twelve years and a four time award-winner.

Who is Driver Hire?

Established for over thirty years and franchising since 1987, Driver Hire provides temporary and permanent drivers and other logistics staff, chiefly to the road transport and logistics industry. Franchisees help customers who need extra staff to deal with holidays, illness, and peak trading periods. They can also help with the recruitment of permanent staff. Customers are businesses and organisations operating their own fleet of vehicles. They range from international hauliers and major retailers to builders merchants, parcel delivery companies and local authorities.


Numbers from the past financial year reflect how strongly the network is performing;

The average Driver Hire franchisee turnover for 2016/17 was £1,106,427 – almost three times as much as the industry average of £378,400. This means the average Driver Hire franchisee earnings for a single office is in excess of £120k per annum (£10k per month). The entry level investment for a start-up franchise is £32,000, plus working capital. Previous resale values have ranged from £40,000 to £500,000.
