Hello everybody, I am glad to see so many people here tonight and I am honored that you are willing to let me take your time.

I hope to give you all or at least some of you the courage to be franchisees in the future. My name is Mathias and I'm the owner of 6 Driving Miss Daisy franchises.

I am going to talk a little about myself but also about my franchisee journey and why I choose to be a franchisee.

But why did I choose to become a franchisee for Driving Miss Daisy, and not just a Mcdonalds or Burger king?

When I was thinking about becoming a franchisee, my first thoughts were about which type of business I wanted to enter.

The business needed to interest me and I wanted to feel like I was making a difference and not just selling burgers.

Driving Miss Daisy simply made me feel like I was making a difference and the fact that I had the opportunity to do something good for someone who couldn't do it themselves made me very happy.

These feelings are one of the reasons that I involved myself in 6 franchises and I still do not regret it.
