New recruit to join vehicle-cleaning chain

Brian Miller is the latest recruit to join vehicle-cleaning chain Autosmart.

Autosmart, one of the leading suppliers of vehicle cleaning products to the trade, has signed a new franchisee, Bruce Miller, to its expanding network.

Miller, who has started operating the franchise in Perthshire, Scotland has said he is “looking forward to working in an industry that (he loves) and building a secure future to take (him) through to retirement.”

Autosmart, which established in 1979, offers franchisees a van based business opportunity specialising in a range of car products, including truck wash, car polish and workshop products, which it distributes to a range of clients such as car dealerships and haulage companies. The business is also looking to expand globally have recently welcomed several new international franchisees.

Miller explained why Autosmart was the one for him: “I took voluntary redundancy following 19 years […] in the communications sector and decided to seek out a completely new career path, ideally running my own business.

“I took some time out and completed a nut and bolt restoration of my 1965 Austin Healy car and decided to show it off at the annual summer show. I got into a conversation with the Autosmart franchisee for Aberdeen, Frank Sutherland, who was attending the show. He gave me a great insight into the business and life as a franchisee.

“After attending a one-to-one discovery day at Autosmart’s head office, I continued my research with some field days out with neighbouring franchisees and the rest is history!”
