What's in it for you?
Choose your own hours
When you run your own franchise with Fresh Car you are in charge of choosing your own hours and availability to suit your needs. The ability to tailor your schedule means you can have more time to spend with family, attend appointments or have some time to yourself all whilst having the opportunity to scale up your business as you please.
Choose your lifestyle
Running your own SMART Repair franchise means you can have responsibilities outside of work and not be constrained in the same way as when you work for someone else. Many business owners today understand that you don't need to work nonstop to succeed in business; instead, you only need to work smartly and in a way that fits your commitments and way of life. You may choose your own pace, decide how much money you make, and most importantly, decide what kind of lifestyle you want to lead by owning a franchise.
An easy way to change career
You'll benefit from our well-established Fresh Car brand and from a supported way to change a career that can fit around your other commitments.
Better work-life balance
One of the best things about self-employment is finding work-life balance. A franchise opportunity can also let you take into account time for your family and yourself, even though working for yourself requires commitment and hard effort. Ultimately, owning a franchise is one of the best occupations you can have with flexible hours since it can be personalised to fit your requirements, goals, and lifestyle. The possibilities are truly endless when you join a reputable and well-known company like Fresh Car.
