Inside Franchise Business: Towncars driving growth in a booming sectorThe Australian taxi and limousine industry is a sector on the move. According to the latest report from IBISWorld, the industry generated a revenue of $6 billion in 2017, with an average growth of 0.5 per cent from 2013 to 2018.

On the back of strong sector growth, the country’s largest franchised hire-car operator, Towncars Networks Australia is continuing to drive its franchisee expansion.

Established in 2009, Towncars provides executive hire car transport solutions for both corporate and private clients and offers a fleet of luxury vehicles and accredited drivers.

While the rise of independent hire-car operators and contractors such as Uber Black and Lux have showcased the industry as a viable option to tradition transport, Towncars’ unique operating and franchise model has put the franchise in the driver’s seat.

With all-inclusive, pre-booked fares, no meters or tolls, Towncars provide a reliable transport solution for families including luggage trailers and age-appropriate child seats.

As a Towncars franchisee, drivers have the opportunity to invest in exclusive areas of both Sydney and Melbourne; regions that represent 64 per cent of the Australian hire-car market.

In addition to a low-entry cost, franchisees are provided with full training and are supported by head office marketing and management, including in-house software and the brand’s seven day call centre.

Becoming a Towncars franchise partner presents an affordable opportunity to join a leading brand in the booming Australian Point-to-Point Transport market.

The Point-to-Point Transport Use survey, released in November 2016, showed that 24 per cent of urban Sydney adults had used hire cars in the previous six months, up from 21 per cent in 2015 and 18 per cent in 2014.

As a proud member of the Franchise Council of Australia and NSW Hire Car Association, Towncars is committed to providing franchisees with not only the best tools for success, but the opportunity to grow their investment tenfold.
