Autovaletdirect franchisee, Richard Rowe signs for a second six year term

Autovaletdirect will be celebrating 7 years of sustained success in franchising in 2013. Launched in the UK in 2006, the company introduced its’ unique mobile valeting and paint protection service to the UK giving hard working, enterprising people the opportunity to build a long-term, profitable business. Operating from fully equipped mobile vehicles with a unique ‘hot wash’ system, Autovaletdirect franchise owners provide a high quality 'on the spot' automotive valeting service to the general public, selected trade and automotive events

Now highlighting a series of franchise agreement renewals reflecting the continued success of its’ franchise owners and following Paul Salmon’s renewal in Birmingham in early 2013, Richard Rowe (franchisee for Cheltenham) having achieved an exceptionally successful first term with his Autovaletdirect franchise, has committed for another six years, underlying his confidence in a strong and profitable future. 

Richard comments, “When it became time to renew my Franchise Agreement with Autovaletdirect I could not believe that the first 6 years had flown past so quickly. It was my initial plan when I started to have 12 years building a strong business that I could eventually sell or pass on to my son Matthew to run as his own as he has now been worked for me for the last 3 years in a separate van. This has been one of the best decisions I have made since starting my franchise, not only the enjoyment of working with my Son but It’s given me the opportunity to respond to customer’s needs more efficiently and offer an all-round better service.” 







He goes on to say, “Autovaletdirect has given me the lifestyle that I had hoped for when I started; in fact it has exceeded my expectations. I was previously in hospitality working unsociable hours and missing out on a lot of family life, I now have the freedom to pick and choose my hours and have more quality family time with the knowledge of having a great customer client base that is growing everyday keeping Matt and I busy week on week. 

The Franchise has given me a wealth of life experiences including many Corporate Events with Alfa Romeo, Audi and Smart car to name a few and as far afield as Belfast for a week working with Hyundai. Chris Johnson, the franchisor encourages experienced franchisees to help with Induction Training and follow up visits for new franchisees. Being one of the first to be awarded a franchise in the network I have also been taking a leading role in helping with hands- on training programmes giving new franchisees the best start possible with my experiences. 

I would recommend an Autovaletdirect Franchise to anyone that is hard working and has an eye for detail; it can bring you great rewards, a sense of achievement and satisfaction and a lifestyle that I only dreamed of prior to signing my first agreement all those years back.

Who knows, if the next 6 years fly by as quickly as the last I may keep going myself as I enjoy it so much working in different places and meeting new people every day meaning Matt may have to wait another 6 years to get his hands on the reins.”
