Future Plans

We will continue to look to expand our operations throughout Australia. The current demand for our services suggests that we have some way to go before we reach anywhere near saturation point. We see this growth coming from both organic growth and possible acquisitions. With a more difficult job market we envisage an increase in enquiries as people look to take control of their own destiny.


"Hi, I'm Darryl Day the owner operator of Car Care Gosford Shire. Being one of the new kids on the block having only been operating for just over six months I feel that I can give a relevant perspective of what it's like to own and run a Car Care Franchise.
I come from an engineering background where I was already making a reasonable living financially speaking, however I was suffering from the same place, same time, same faces syndrome. I unfortunately had an accident and was unable to work for many months so began to look at other options when the opportunity came up to purchase this franchise. I was (and still am) blown away with the amount of information, support and guidance that is afforded you right from the initial meeting. You automatically become part of the Car Care Family which is both endearing but more importantly stress relieving as it can be daunting buying a new business, a new future! 
Part reason for buying a Car Care Franchise was that I could still earn a decent living whilst having the flexibility to work my own hours which would allow me to see more of my family and friends. Not only has owning a Car Care Franchise given me the flexibility to do this it has also given me new found friends, opportunities and security. I won't lie, it can be a fickle business but the rewards far out way the downside. I get to meet some lovely local people, some eccentric, some serious, some with sad stories, some with happy stories but all different and all just as important as the other in the success of your new business. Then there is the locations you find yourself at. I live on the Central Coast NSW and had no idea of the awesome spots we are blessed with! Oh and then there is the cars you get to climb over, in , through and sometimes drive and even go to shows or go around a race track in !!
So in closing I would like to reiterate that if your looking to buy a business then I believe you need look no further than a Car Care Franchise as it offers you the opportunity to be your own boss, work your own hours, earn a good financial living and all this with the already proven business model and support that you just struggle to find when starting a new business. Believe me, I've been there."
