In 2017, Julian and Rachel became part of the Daisy team after returning to the UK from South Africa, where they had lived for 28 years. Julian had prior experience in Health & Safety management in the Oil & Gas industry; while Rachel worked as a Logistics Manager in IT.

After searching online for ways to assist Rachel’s elderly parents, who retired to Bognor Regis they discovered Driving Miss Daisy. Rachel was struck by their motto of “We’re family when family can’t be there,”. Although the service was not available in their area, they viewed it as an opportunity and relocated to West Sussex four months later to establish their own Driving Miss Daisy franchise.

They completed their training, obtained their Private Hire Licence, and had their first “Daisy” vehicle on the road within eight weeks of arriving. As a result of the strong interest and high demand for their unique service, they soon had a second vehicle and companion driver.

Their clients range in age from 12 to 103, and they enjoy spending time with each of them, as they all have a story to tell.
