Property Information


Driver Hire Leicester currently operates from an excellent leasehold office, along a busy road.

Premises Details:

The property consists of a reception area, office space, training room, storage area, kitchen and large garden to the rear of the property.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Driver Hire Leicester has been performing strongly but there is still plenty of scope for further significant grow.

For example, the huge increase in home shopping has stimulated demand for multi-drop delivery drivers. In addition to supplying temporary drivers, Driver Hire franchisees can generate revenue from providing permanent staff, delivering classroom based driver training and selling further complimentary products and services e.g. an online driving licence checking service linked to the DVLA.

Competition / Market:

Driver Hire is the UK’s market leader in this buoyant sector of the recruitment services industry, yet still holds a relatively low market share.

We operate in a competitive environment but the benefits of an extremely strong brand, a proven business process and central support combined with the hard work, motivation and commitment of the franchise owner provide a competitive edge that has seen Driver Hire consistently succeed where others have failed.

Reasons for selling:

Current franchisee is looking to retire and realise their investment.

Trading hours:

Usually 08.00 – 5.30 office hours but 24/7 on-call provision is essential

Four contracted employees - hours contracted varies.
Years established:
Since 1994 - 23 years

Franchise Terms

Franchise opportunity:

5-year renewable term

Support & training:
