HiQ franchisee fast fit network is celebrating a major boost in its ambitious expansion plans after an existing franchisee put pen to paper on his second Surrey centre.
Former British Touring Car Championship star Jeff Allam is opening his second HiQ-branded outlet in Leatherhead, Surrey.
The move comes just six months after opening his first outlet in Dorking.
Allam, who used to star in Britainâ€™s premier motor racing series in Vauxhalls and BMWs, is strengthening his partnership with HiQ â€“ the official sponsors of the BTCCâ€™s Team Championship.
He said: â€œOur first impressions of working with HiQ have been extremely good. They are flexible, supportive and offer a range of support for us, which has been invaluable.
â€œLeatherhead was always a location that interested us and we are confident of making the business a big success.
â€œWe have increased staff numbers by two, have again invested a good sum of money in the site and are hopeful that motorists will be enticed to our four-bay store.â€
