why invest in a Freedom franchise?

Freedom supports local communities and is specifically designed to provide highly personalized transport and assistance service to both this growing market of people and anyone who needs help getting from A to B. Customers range from senior citizens, those with injuries, children needing transport to and from school and sports and anyone else who needs temporary or ongoing transport.

Freedom is set to become a popular choice for these people, whilst providing a franchisee with the ability to build a great business and make a valuable contribution to their local community.

If you have always thought of being your own boss, now is the time to take the step you always promised yourself and own your own business. Freedom is at the forefront of this rapidly growing market and is a great choice when it comes to companion driver services.

the Freedom difference

A Freedom franchise means delivering what you say you will and going the extra mile for your customers. It is all about how you present yourself and your attitude to deliver a top quality service.

Working hours are flexible and with systems that are internet based you can easily run it from home. Customer details, scheduling, quotes and invoicing can all be stored, tracked and produced online. Customers pay you directly so you can manage your own income and earning potential.

investment required

$32,000 plus car. This covers the franchise territory fee, training, initial set-up, branding marketing etc, licenses. The only additional cost is the car. 

training and support

Each franchisee completes a training program that includes a review of the manual, practical field training, marketing advice and use of the online systems. Although no previous experience is necessary some previous business experience can be an advantage, as are a reasonable level of computer literacy and good written and spoken communication skills.

growing your business

Although you will be responsible for the daily running of your business we will provide you with support and advice on ways to grow it. The business can be run by a single operator or you can grow it with additional vehicles and drivers.

selling your franchise

Your franchise agreement with Freedom runs for 30 years through 5 year renewal options.  This gives you the ability to sell the business to a new operator giving them certainty that the area is secured for a reasonable time and adds real value to the business.
