Sue and Vance Parsons, owners of Driver Hire Hereford & Worcester, have collected another national award.
Already winners of ‘startups.com’ ‘Franchisee of the Year’ award, they’ve now added Driver Hire’s ‘Newcomer of the Year’. It’s a result of the outstanding levels of trading they’ve achieved during their first full year in business.
The Parsons first opened their doors for business in October 2013 as a brand new franchise with no customers and no drivers. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength. With another two months’ trading still to go in the current financial year, they’ve already smashed their business plan sales target. Every week they are finding regular work for over 50 local drivers.
Commenting on their success, Jeremy Neale, Driver Hire’s UK Managing Director said: “This award is well deserved. It reflects what has been a truly outstanding business performance by Sue and Vance. Since joining our franchise network, they’ve fully engaged with Driver Hire and taken full advantage of the help and support we offer all our franchisees. What also impressed us were their efforts to recruit more drivers – essential for the long-term success of the business. As this award shows, they’re now clearly reaping the benefits.”
Vance Parsons added: “We’ve enjoyed an exceptional first year with Driver Hire. Of course success like this doesn’t come without an awful lot of hard work. It’s great to have our efforts recognised and, with the opening of our new office in Hereford, we’re looking forward to pushing on from here.”
