A FRANCHISE holder who provides temporary and permanent drivers to businesses in the Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich area has won his second award in as many years.

George Griffiths, who operates a four-man team out of Bury, won Driver Hire’s national newcomer of the year award last year – now he has another trophy in his cabinet after he beat 90 other offices to the title of franchisee of the year.

Chris Chidley, chief executive of Driver Hire, said: “They’re currently 41 per cent up on last year – a tremendous performance against a difficult business backdrop. Over the last two years, they have built a solid platform for further growth and success.”

He also said the office was a ‘good team player’ working with other franchisees to deliver a ‘seamless service’ to all of the customers.

George said: “Obviously I’m delighted for me and my team. I think a lot of the success is down to desire and motivation.”
