New Franchise – Renclyde2 Apr 2019
Danny and Christine McIntyre own Driving Miss Daisy®’s new franchise in Renclyde. Danny and Christine from Kilmacolm, Inverclyde, are the second Driving Miss Daisy® franchise in Scotland. They have recently sold their recruitment business, which prompted the buy. Danny says, ‘We were looking for a new challenge. We wanted to combine my 40 years’ experience in the business world and Christine’s experience within the nursing and care sector’. Danny added, ‘And it soon became clear that Driving Miss Daisy® more than fitted the bill!’ Our main passion in life is our son, Cameron, who is at university in Edinburgh. Our other passion is our two Labradoodles, Sandy and Marvin’.
The new franchise and the Glasgow franchise
The Renclyde franchise sits alongside the Glasgow one. This gives better coverage in the region and offers clients flexibility with bookings. Ann Overdijking, Glasgow franchise, says, ‘The Driving Miss Daisy® brand extends its presence! This is good for clients and I look forward to working with Renclyde.’
