Meet Darren Taylor

As the man behind the Taylor Made Franchising brands - StumpBusters, PVC Vendo, Wilkins Chimney Sweep, Thomas Cleaning and Traas - Darren offers something that few franchisors in the UK can boast: he’s learned from the ground up, having been a highly successful franchisee himself.

Darren always keeps an eye open for further potential franchise brand acquisitions; you can see what previous sellers have to say about him here.

StumpBusters have been providing professional tree stump removal services for nearly 25 years, for both domestic and commercial customers. They can clear any size of tree stump thanks to our wide range of modern machines, and will leave the stump removed to well below ground level.

Wilkins Chimney Sweep prides itself on providing a clean, reliable and friendly service that offers great value and minimum fuss. They’ve been sweeping chimneys for more than 120 years, and wouldn't have been in this business for that long without being rather good at it!
