Have you ever wanted to work for yourself? Have you ever wanted to work the hours you want and have unlimited earning potential? Have you wanted to own an award-winning franchise with experienced business advice every step of the way? If so, then ChipsAway may be the franchise for you.
ChipsAway can offer you a proven, tried and tested business model which is completely flexible to suit your ambitions. It can grow as big as you want it to be, with brilliant earning potential, allowing you to take control of your future. With over 200 happy franchisees spanning the UK, a ChipsAway franchise could help you achieve the lifestyle you want to live.
All franchises require an up-front investment to cover the training, initial equipment and the franchising fee. For ChipsAway, the initial franchise is £29,995 + VAT, yet with the various pricing options that we offer, you only need £20,000 + VAT of your own funds to start your business on the road to success! This makes ChipsAway a fantastic investment as a low-cost, high reward, franchise opportunity.
Everything you need to get you on the road to success. We want you to be able to hit the ground running with your own business.
Your initial investment with ChipsAway will include all the equipment you need to conduct minor car body repair. This includes all the repair equipment, as well as a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) IT system to manage your growing customer base. As well as this, you get a rigorous four-week training course, your own exclusive ChipsAway territory, and lead generation through national advertising campaigns.
Our comprehensive franchise package is already well established and has helped new franchisees up-and-down the country start running their own car repair franchise. Some of those franchisees have also gone on to become successful multi-van businesses with multiple employees. Our offering and our successful franchisees are just some of the reasons why we are one of the top SMART repair franchises in the country.

As a result of extensive national advertising campaigns, including our TV advertising, ChipsAway franchisees benefit from an average of over £150,000 worth of repair leads each per year*.
With over 250,000 customer enquiries received each year – that’s £57 million worth of opportunities – from day one we will ensure you have enough jobs available to keep you busy. It’s entirely up to you and your ambition, as to how how much work you want to undertake. Your business is yours to run and you can run it how you want to. Our job is to be here to help you make the most out of your opportunity.
The rewards for hard-working franchisees are unlimited. Most franchisees initially opt for a van-based franchise at first and many have then gone on to develop their business further, either through a multi-van, multi-territory or unit operations with their own Car Care Centres. There is endless potential with a ChipsAway franchise.
As a ChipsAway franchisee you will be responsible for running your own car repair business, with all the additional support of a larger corporation. This includes conducting car repairs on a day-to-day basis, repairing dents and scratches, as well as other minor car body damage. ChipsAway have built a fantastic reputation for high-quality car repairs – and that is a reputation you can benefit from, as well as our national advertising campaigns.
ChipsAway is a well-known name within the minor car body repairs industry. Research suggests that there are approximately 34 million vehicles currently on our UK roads, 64%** of which have damage, that could easily be repaired by an automotive scratch and dent repair franchise such as ChipsAway. With the marketplace in a state of constant growth, it is estimated that minor car body repairs are now costing the UK public a total of £1.4 billion per year***. The average bill is now estimated at £2,050 for car body repairs.
Thanks to our experience and SMART repair techniques we are able to provide customers with a convenient service. It is a service that is faster and more economically viable than a lot of competitors. It is no wonder that more customers continue to choose ChipsAway as their number one car body repair specialists of choice.
Keith McGowan has been a ChipsAway franchisee for nearly 16 years! In that time Keith has developed a 3rd generation workshop, occupies the largest ChipsAway Car Care Centre in the UK and is turning over a phenomenal £1 million per year.
“When you own your own business, you need to have a clear vision of where you want to go. I have always had a clear vision of what I wanted my Car Care Centre to look like. When I first opened my car care centre, I didn’t think it was the best that it could be and I wanted to improve the customer experience. With a clear vision, I have been able to achieve my goals.”
