What Revive! can give to you as a Franchisee

Business owner Russell Hudson of Revive!

It can be a daunting prospect to hand over your hard-earned funds when purchasing a franchise. It is not an insignificant amount of money to spend, money that others may invest in a house deposit, a new car or even save it for retirement. This is why Revive! sees it as a key importance that you understand what you will be getting when you invest in a management franchise.

Our business model allows for you to deliver an outstanding return on your investment – it’s proven by multiple franchisees in multiple locations to give you the potential to run a business with sales of over £1m, it is our responsibility to demonstrate this and present the capabilities you will have with your own franchise.

How much will I need to invest in a Revive! franchise?

To begin your Revive! journey, you will need to invest £25,000 of your own capital plus additional funding from a lender or bank. We are well known, respected and have developed excellent relationships with high street banks and other lenders. They have historical evidence of our franchise model and its profitability for franchisees, which is why they are happy to fund up to 70% of the total financial investment.

Your franchise investment will consist of £35,000 +VAT (which is reclaimable) for the initial franchise fee, and a deposit for two vans. You will also need working capital and we will help you to explore that through our cash flow forecasting template.
