Resale success welcomes new franchisees at Kingston branch
Priyank and Pinky Patel have just bought Driver Hire’s Kingston recruitment franchise from retiring franchisee David Baker.
Recently married, running their own business is going to be a big career change for both Priyank and Pinky. Before opting to buy their Driver Hire franchise, Priyank had over ten years’ experience in logistics, latterly as an operations manager at parcel delivery company, DPD.
Pinky’s business experience is in the mobile telecoms sector, working for Carphone Warehouse. Over an eleven-year period, she held various positions including senior sales consultant, assistant manager and project manager. Pinky recently graduated from the University of West London with a distinction in MSc Finance and Risk Management.
“We are both excited to be working for ourselves,” says Priyank. “Running our own Driver Hire franchise is a great opportunity for us both. As with any business, it will be a challenge, but our mix of skills will ensure we make a success of our new venture. Together we make a great team.”
Pinky added: “We’re looking forward to supporting local businesses, helping them with their driver recruitment needs. With Driver Hire, there’s an unlimited potential for growth. Our business is about much more than driving. With that in mind, we plan to add Driver CPC training to the services we offer and further improve our round-the-clock service by increasing the number of staff we employ.”
