The day was a combination of practical business and marketing advice for the franchisees, inspirational stories, sharing of best practice and guidance on supporting customers. Jan Mitman shared her 20+ years of franchising with the team including the lessons she's learned on building a great team of successful franchisees.
The latest Daisy vehicle unveiled
During the conference, representatives from Blind Veterans UK showed franchisees the best ways to support visually impaired customers. When it came to giving a demonstration of how to assist someone in and out of a vehicle, they were the first to use the new wheelchair accessible Daisy car.
This spacious Citroen offers a comfortable, safe and secure ride for customers using wheelchairs but still gives plenty of space for those who just require a comfy car seat! Franchisees were once again impressed with the support offered by Driving Miss Daisy HQ who had done all the groundwork in selecting the most suitable vehicle and securing the best deals on branding and leasing for the network.
Paul Nuth, Business Development Director for Driving Miss Daisy UK, was really pleased with their first ever franchise conference: “It’s absolutely true to say that our franchise makes a difference in people’s lives and our network of Daisies is such a strong community already. Our franchisees can build profitable businesses but, more than that, they are all focused on delivering a valuable service. We are so excited to see what next year’s franchise conference will look like!”
