Franchise with us
Whatever sector you work in, find out how HiQ can help you flourish
The UK’s tyre and fast fit franchise sector is set to be worth over £28 billion, with growing opportunities for anyone entering the market, so there’s never been a better time to join.
There’s been a record number of vehicle registrations in the last five years and the market is expected to continue to grow. With more cars on the road, a key area of opportunity lies in all vehicles fitted with tyres 17” or above. Larger rim sizes mean greater margin opportunities. As more and more vehicles demand replacement for this size of tyre, the aftermarket sector supports hundreds of thousands of jobs and contributes billions of pounds to the economy year on year. There is also expected growth in Electric and Hybrid vehicles, driving demand for specialist technicians.
A successful business franchise offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to run their own business with a strong brand, a proven record of success, training and development programmes, marketing support, and more. HiQ have hundreds of opportunities for big and small businesses, so why not join a national network of businesses backed by Goodyear?
