Driverseat

About Driverseat

The "perfect storm".

A "perfect storm" is a confluence of events that drastically impacts a situation. It is also noted when there is a rare combination of factors.

We believe that with Driverseat, you have the perfect storm. Take an industry with high growth, worth in excess of $2B a year in Canada and over $20B annually in North America. Combine that with a new concept, so innovative and cutting edge that Driverseat is talked about in every market that we enter.

Now mix in with that the significant interest in franchising in North America as a growth model and as a business choice for franchisees, the relatively low cost of getting your franchise started, the business model and the experience of the co-founders, and that is what we like to call a perfect storm.

The exciting part of owning your own business

Owning your business is exciting. You control the hours, the work, the level of politics in your office, your income, your priorities and ultimately, your future. Learning is exciting; getting that first customer is exciting; being interviewed in the newspaper and having your family see your photo there is exciting. Self-employed people are generally happier in life, have less unhealthy stress and get to prioritize family when they want to, not when the boss says it is ok to.
The "not so fun" part of owning your own business

Owning a business can be stressful. You have decisions to make daily that are in unchartered territory. You are good at some things, but not an expert in all things. You have to develop that expensive web site and app, you have to determine how best to market, you have employees to deal with and the cost, well that is something that keeps you up at night. On top of that, you have to fill in when your employees are not there, manage food or inventory and worry about the logistics and shipments and other things related to your inventory.

The great news is that with Driverseat, you don't have any of those issues. As a franchise based business, you are using a proven model, you have the expertise of the co-founders, you have marketing support and you have other franchisees who you can learn from. Driverseat franchises have little to no permanent employees, no inventory, low start-up costs and a great profitability model.

The Driverseat franchise model

Driverseat is a home-based franchise model. As a franchise partner, your primary role is to be the marketing driver in your local community. Hiring contract drivers to complete the rides means that you can focus on building the brand, and your business. What's truly exciting about that, is that it makes Driverseat one of the only truely scalable home-based business models. There are very few barriers to growth, and getting busier does not necessarily mean you have to work more hours. Furthermore, your ongoing fixed overhead costs are minimal, which reduces the risks associated with being self-employed.

Balance of life

We believe in the balance of life. Lifestyle is one of the main reasons quoted when a franchisee speaks to us about why they chose Driverseat. Working from home, on a very flexible schedule, makes this franchise model appealing and one that is the envy of many other businesses. We believe in working hard but we believe in doing so with a finite amount of time invested. Want to take your children to the dentist? Just take them. It won't impact your business at all. Want to be free to go shopping with your spouse on a weekday? Interested in sleeping in then starting work late? Want to avoid the commute? These are all aspects of having your own Driverseat that makes it just so appealing.

Revenue

Each Driverseat franchisee will determine how much he/she wants to make at their franchise location. With 8 service offerings, there is a variety of markets to target. Our flat cost royalty means that you won't be paying a percentage of your monthly revenue to us, but rather a flat rate.

Want to own 2 or 3 Driverseat franchises? That is absolutely possible with the systems we have developed to ensure you can run, market and oversee the business without having to work in each of your business units.
