What is ChipsAway?
ChipsAway are the originators of the SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair process. As a full British Franchise Association (BFA) member with IMI, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations and affiliation with 3M and BVRLA, you won’t find better quality training, products and ongoing sales and marketing support at any other franchise.
We have been established in the UK for over twenty years. We now have the largest network of repair specialists in the UK, who have all undergone specialist training at our bespoke IMI accredited training centre in Worcestershire.
As a ChipsAway business owner, you will visit customers locally in your mobile workshop, offering high quality, value-for-money, everyday car damage repairs, including paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs and minor dents – known in the industry as SMART repairs.
With ChipsAway’s flexible business plan, some franchisees develop their business further and operate from a Car Care centre, with or without a mobile workshop, which can increase both the potential number of repairs that can be carried out, and the average repair value.
SMART repairs are quicker, more convenient and better value than traditional body shop methods, and we pride ourselves on our five-star TrustPilot rating awarded to us by our customers for the excellent, high quality service we provide.
A ChipsAway business package includes technical training, marketing and sales courses, ongoing business and technical support and advice, a host of marketing materials and a 24/7 Call Centre, based in the UK, ready to answer customer enquiries.
This market-leading franchise will cost £29,995 +VAT, but with our various pricing options you will only need £15,000 +VAT to get started.

With ChipsAway, you will receive four weeks of expert, hands-on practical training at our bespoke facility – accredited with the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) – before starting work.
But it’s not just the practical skills you need. We know that not all of you have previous experience running a business, so we also provide Business Mentoring from an experienced Franchisee, and dedicated Franchisee support team member to help you and a business plan template, which you can personalise to match your ambition. In 2017 the average ChipsAway franchisee received over £140,000 worth of customer enquiries via the ChipsAway head office.
Beyond your initial training, we will make sure you have the network of support you need to run your business smoothly. With our ongoing technical advice, unlimited help and advice from your fellow franchisees and invitations to attend our annual Conference or Regional Meetings, our support is unrivalled.
With around 250,000 customer enquiries coming in each year – that’s £40million of enquiries – from day one we will ensure you have enough jobs available to keep you busy. It’s up to you, and your ambition, how much work you want to undertake.
Why go it alone when you can have the backing of a nationally recognised brand leader?
The ChipsAway Marketing Support team provides franchisees with extensive national advertising, including nationwide coverage on TV, and online and offline campaigns throughout the year to raise brand awareness. As a result of extensive national advertising campaigns, including our TV advertising, the average ChipsAway franchisee received over £140,000 worth of customer enquiries in 2017 via the ChipsAway head office.
The Business Model
Our flexible business model can be tailored to suit your ambitions. Running a ChipsAway business means you decide how long you work, and how much work you undertake. As a ‘man in a van’ operation, some of our franchisees turnover in excess of £75,000 a year. If you’re interested in growing your business by taking on more staff or even expanding into multiple territories, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

If you want to start working for yourself, it’s paramount to have a strong supporting network who have loads of experience and expertise in that area. ChipsAway provides excellent support, not only from head office staff but from other franchisees who have walked the same road as you. The marketing support is also fantastic. You get all the help you need so that you can feel confident, instead of the vulnerability and fear which comes with starting a business alone.

When you first think about leaving the security of employment to start your own business, a big question is whether there will be enough work for you to pay the mortgage and cover the bills. Investing in a franchise was a way of me changing my career without having to lose earnings and having a proven business model to follow. I’ve received excellent support from ChipsAway, not only from the Head Office team and my business mentor (another franchisee), but also from neighbouring franchisees.

After I attended the open day, I knew that ChipsAway, which is owned by Franchise Brands plc, would be a great company to invest into, and far more professional than other franchises I’d looked at. I wanted to join a franchise rather than starting on my own because of the support. When I met the ChipsAway team, I knew that it was the right decision. They provide you with IMI accredited technical support and training from beginner level, general business support for those who have never been self-employed, and leads from day one to give you a head start.
