The advantages of having a Franchise versus opening a business on your own are considerable:
Operating since 1997 under the trade name Keys Please®, The Driving Alternative® is one of North America’s leading pioneers in the designated driving business. The vision of Keys Please® is to support, guide and direct our Franchisees to unparalleled success.
The future looks very bright for Keys Please®. We are in the perfect position to take advantage of the changing impaired driving laws coupled with the way the general public now views drinking and driving.
Keys Please® has various types of designated driving services to fit personal and business requirements. Our service provides individuals and businesses the opportunity to transport vehicles, themselves and guests at an affordable cost to their desired destination.
Keys Please® uses a centralized dispatch system which is located in Calgary, Alberta. This system is fully automated and sends job assignments to the closest vehicle in several cities at once. This ground-breaking technology allows us to centralize our dispatch, saving our franchisees thousands of dollars on additional facilities and personnel that would normally be required to dispatch calls from each city. The system incorporates integrated vehicle tracking (GPS) keeping our dispatch centre fully informed on current vehicle jobs, locations and status.
This system assists in providing efficient customer service and gains in driver revenue.
The software running on the Drivers’ communication device also simplifies the job of the drivers by allowing enhanced capabilities such as automatic trip price calculation, entry of waiting time, trip mileage recording and entry of account billing information.
Using the Keys Please® app customers are able to order and track their Keys Please® designated driver in real time right from their SmartPhone!
Keys Please® has a company-owned location in Calgary, Alberta. This gives us the ability to measure the performance of our marketing programs and any new innovations before we introduce them to our franchisee.
With the structure and system that Keys Please® has in place, this is the ideal business.
