Jay Belam, owner of Revive! Surrey, has been shortlisted for the bfa Star Performer award in the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards.
When Jay was leaving the Army, he wanted a business model that gave more security for his family. Although Jay wanted to work for himself, he also wanted to have a team he could count on around him with support and training, and the Revive! values were exactly what he wanted to achieve in his business.
Revive! operates in both a business-to-business environment and directly with the general public. Founded in 2004, Revive! franchisees run large territories and manage their own team of skilled technicians who repair damage to car paintwork including bumper scuffs, minor chips and the refurbishment of alloy wheels. All with a clear focus on outstanding customer service, demonstrated by their excellent 5* Trustpilot rating.
Known as the ‘Oscars’ of the franchising industry and set to take place on 24 November in Birmingham, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards evening is the flagship event in the franchising calendar and finalists are definitely ones to watch.
This year saw a record number of entries submitted across all categories, leading to an overall increase versus 2021. Despite what continues to be challenging times for most independent businesses, the franchising sector has shown strength and resilience. As a result, many bfa members have reported strong financial performance and continue to build strong, healthy networks.
Said owner of Revive! Surrey, Jay Belam:
“I’m delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious award. It’s testament to the hard work put in by myself and my fantastic team, and our commitment to providing the highest level of customer care and technical excellence.”
Jay will be battling it out against two other business owners to take home the coveted bfa Star Performer accolade in November.
This award recognises the highest performing franchisees in a franchise network. These finalists showcase the very best values and attitudes to see them not just succeed but excel in business. By their nature they hold trusted relationships, are well connected and offer support to people around them.
Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association, congratulated finalists:
“We see such a diverse mix of people in franchising, it is a business model that provides opportunity for all and we know that when the right person meets the right brand amazing things happen, that is why we wanted to recognise what it takes to be the best of the best in franchise networks, the finalists are doing amazing things and we look forward to celebrating with Jay on 24 November.”
Gillian Morris, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said:
“The annual awards are a celebration of the achievements of the franchise sector, as well as the high standards of the finalists, their innovation and resilience demonstrated over the past year. We look forward to celebrating success with Jay.”
