William Liu and Perry Chow open Driver Seat in Markam Ontario
Franchise Owner William Lui to also open Richmond Hill North and Richmond Hill South Territories
Kitchener/Markham Driverseat services continue to expand to new communities with the recent opening of Markham Ontario, located north east of Toronto. Franchise owner William Lui has also purchased the rights to open Richmond Hill North and Richmond Hill South, with plans to do so later in 2015.
“The areas around Toronto (GTA) have been very receptive with our business and the services we offer.” states Brian Bazely, Co-founder Driverseat. “There is a pent-up-demand for Driverseat in small towns, remote cities and in the metropolis areas of Canada.”
Driverseat Markham and Richmond Hill openings provide consumers with service from Barrie Ontario south to Markham and east to Stouffville. Driverseat continues to grow by selecting the right franchise partner to own and operate each individual Terminal (franchise area). The company is currently fielding calls from prospective franchisees from across Canada, several parts of the U.S. and from interested parties in several other countries outside of North America.
“William has a great understanding of the business and after having spent the last several years in the Richmond Hill / Markham area, is well positioned to grow his business there” adds Luke Bazely, co-founder Driverseat. “After having met him personally at our office for a discovery day, we knew he would be an excellent fit.”
Driverseat Markham will offer Airport Drop-off, Designated Driving, Assisted Transport (for the elderly) along with car relocation, medical pick-up and fleet servicing. In addition, companies can set up accounts for themselves and their employees and those getting married can set up a Special Event package to take guests home safely.
Customers will be able to book Designated Driving through the mobile App, which displays the mapped route they will be taking, and allows pre-payment on a credit card, ensuring the service is efficient and easy to use. In addition, customers can order any of the other 7 services through the website, by calling the local franchise direct or by emailing for information. The franchise is currently hiring additional drive teams to perform the service.
“The corporate office team could not be happier with this growth.” states Brian. “Being able to service important markets like Markham and Richmond Hill is key as the company continues to grow across Canada and prepares for its launch in the U.S.”
