The Business Opportunity, a Unique Social Enterprise
Each of our Daisy Franchisees have the desire to make a difference in their community while building their own business. Our franchises are an opportunity for people to own and operate a small business within the community they live. Driving Miss Daisy provides guidance and support through our franchise system. Our core focus is helping people to enjoy life to the full. We support clients in their day to day activities and encourage them to get out and about wherever and whenever possible.
We aim to make a positive difference to our client’s lives and it is essential that our Daisy Franchisees share this vision. Our Daisy Franchisees are passionate about building their businesses whilst enjoying the rewards of offering a valued service to the local community. We share our business model and vision with you. Each Daisy Franchisee is supported and guided through the established business systems. We’re there for you; just as you’re there for your clients.
As our population is rapidly ageing, the physically and cognitively challenged are also facing more isolation than ever before. We at Driving Miss Daisy empower our clients, young or old, to live more independent lives while providing a social connection to the community.
As a Driving Miss Daisy Franchisee, you will be providing a life-changing service. The demand for our service continues to grow along with the special needs of children and the ageing population. Many of our Daisy Franchisees, both in Australia and around the world, are passionate about offering this unique service in the community.

Each vehicle has the Daisy decals, leather upholstered seats and security cargo barrier. Personal vehicles are not permitted. Each Daisy vehicle is the special Daisy blue, distinctive and a huge mobile advertisement for the Driving Miss Daisy brand.

How much money can I expect to make?
While you will be operating under the Driving Miss Daisy franchise system, with all the attached business tools and support, results will always be determined by the individual time and effort put into growing your business to meet your own business and personal goals.
What training and support is provided?
We have a comprehensive training and support process, backed up by our operations manual, driver training manual and recommended marketing processes. These are provided to you with a detailed mentoring system from our Support Office team. There is the opportunity to build relationships with the other Daisy franchisees to provide additional support. This means while you are in business for yourself, you are never by yourself.
