The event saw colleagues from across the business get together at the Jury's Inn Hinkley Island Hotel for a full schedule of presentations before enjoying a gala dinner and awards ceremony

Over 100 franchisees and their teams including 10 new owners recruited during 2021, attended the event which celebrated both the network's collaborative success and a number of individual achievements.

Jay Belam, owner of Revive! Surrey was named Franchisee of the Year, with Iain Wallis of Northampton taking silver and Scott Gosbell of Stoke on Trent awarded bronze. Belam also scooped the Retail Award with silver going to Steve Thatcher of Portsmouth and bronze to Mike Haselden owner of Revive! Chester.

Technician of the Year was presented to Steve Fry from Revive! Swindon.

Delegates heard that over 30% of the network celebrated their best ever sales year in 2021 with Revive! Surrey and Revive! East Anglia exceeding £1m turnover. A total of 16 franchisees achieved their record month.

Revive! itself won silver in the customer service category of the 2021 Brilliant Business Awards, whilst managing director Terry Mullens was a finalist in the Bodyshop Excellence Awards.

He said: "They say that you only really know the strength of a team when it is put under pressure. But when the going got tough our tough team got going. This time last year we were still under partial lockdown, yet we have seen so many successes across our network from best month's and best year's performance to record profits for a number of franchise owners."
