What makes Revive! tick

We’ve grown from humble beginnings and just a single van into a nationwide network of businesses and a multi-award-winning brand. We’re proud to be at the forefront of mobile paint repair and leading the way where others in the sector follow.

We’re equally proud of our franchise model, and we have the franchisee performance and industry recognition to show you why. Together with franchisees, we’ve combined expert knowledge with a pioneering spirit to bring a superior service to customers nationwide.

But we’re about much more than just vehicles.

Although we’re in the business of SMART repairs, we’re also in the business of changing lives. Because that’s the power this franchise holds: the power to take you from where you are now to where you dream of being later.

Hear from joint MD’s Mark Llewellyn and Terry Mullen talk about the growth of our business.

Revive! story and meet our directors

Revive! Auto Innovations was founded in 2004 by business partners, Mark Llewellyn and Terry Mullen, building on their previous experience in the automotive and financial sectors to form the Revive! brand. The business offers minor car repairs on a mobile basis with a network of skilled technicians, with a clear focus on outstanding customer service and technical excellence.

Mark had previously started his first SMART repair business 25 years ago with a single van, operating from his parents’ house. Terry joined him to help build this previous business, after a 21-year career in NatWest, lending to businesses, including reviewing deals of up to £10m. She took on the operational and financial aspects of the business, whilst Mark focused on sales and customer service and some years later, they launched the Revive! franchise to build on their joint experience.
