About us

Driving Miss Daisy®

Driving Miss Daisy® offers a safe, friendly and reliable driving and companion service. This service is for anyone who is unable to drive but wishes to remain independent.

Across the UK, there are many places that need a considerate transportation service, and so, we’re looking for people to join us. In particular, caring and compassionate people. It helps to have run a business or understand what running a business involves, but it is not essential.

Are you interested in owning your own home-based business with low investment costs? If you are, and you live in an area that will benefit from a Driving Miss Daisy® service, please fill in the form on this page.

Driving growth

Following the UK launch in early 2015, Driving Miss Daisy® has opened more than 30 franchises. From Glasgow to the Isle of Wight, Driving Miss Daisy® is an established UK operation.

A Board of Directors and a Senior Leadership Team drive the company’s development. Each person specialises in aspects of business essential to grow the UK entity.

Each of the Directors have successfully set-up, grown and managed their own businesses. This includes building an international franchise organisation. They have the experience and expertise to support you and your business.

They have passion and enthusiasm, meaning franchisees get the right support when needed.
