What our franchisees have to say

 “We’re turning over £6,000 a week!”
As soon as husband and wife team Steve and Anne Martin scratched the surface of a ChipsAway franchise, they knew it was for them. Within a year they are generating a turnover of £6,000+ per week!


“ChipsAway provided the perfect solution”
Proud dad Paul Clift is expanding his successful ChipsAway business, taking on a second territory and an additional vehicle, enabling his son Robert to help him in building a strong family enterprise.


“My business keeps going from strength to strength”
Former RAF Engineering Officer, Paul Fabian, joined ChipsAway in 1999 having taken voluntary redundancy. Initially running a man-and-van operation, Paul has since seen his business boom, and today operates two fixed CarCare Centres as well as a mobile unit, employing six staff.


“Multi-million pound business in three-five years!”
When Alistair Hoy joined ChipsAway earlier this year, he had big plans for his business. Having opened a CarCare Centre after 6 months, Alistair has now begun building a team of technicians to help him; he expects to invest in additional ChipsAway vehicles over the coming months and predicts that he will be turning over a million pounds within three to five years.
