"We really enjoy our business – every day is different, and we have the pleasure of helping and chatting with people from all walks of life,” says franchisee Zororo Mubaya
The couple – who once ran a recruitment service on Oxford Business Park North – have lived in Didcot since 2005 and wanted to provide a service giving peace of mind to those with older family members. They are fully equipped to assist anyone of any age who needs a hand when their family isn’t available to help.
Driving Miss Daisy Companion Drivers provide a range of services from helping with shopping trips to support at family events or even just spending a couple of hours chatting or playing board games with someone who might spend a lot of time alone. They can collect children from school and take them to after school activities if working parents are unable to make it in time for school pick-up and can also help clients with everyday appointments, waiting and returning them to the comfort of their own home. Longer distance journeys enable people to access holiday destinations with the peace of mind that their journey will be safe, comfortable and fully tailored to their needs.
All Driving Miss Daisy Companion Drivers also adhere to the strict COVID-19 health and hygiene protocols to maintain everyone’s safety and welfare.
Zororo says: “Driving Miss Daisy is often described as ‘family when family can’t be there’. When times are busy and people sometimes live a long way from their elderly relatives, we want to be able to provide peace of mind.
“We really enjoy our business – every day is different, and we have the pleasure of helping and chatting with people from all walks of life.”
Driving Miss Daisy has operational teams across the UK offering services during these difficult times and there are still franchise opportunities and a menu of investment options.
