More about Darren Taylor
Starting out with a single Stumpbusters franchise in 2006, he expanded to eventually run four territories before buying the franchise business itself in 2013.
Since then, he’s overseen nationwide expansion and grown Stumpbusters to be the No1 brand in its sector in the country.
Using his personal insight into what it takes to succeed as a franchisee, Darren took over the established Wilkins Chimney Sweep network. In 2018 he launched highly successful Dutch brand Traas into the UK marketplace. In early 2019 he acquired PVC Vendo, a leading fleet washing business.
Supported by a highly experienced group of people, including specialists within each business, Darren has all four brands primed for further growth over the next decade and beyond.
“I’ve always been ambitious and looked forward to new opportunities. I’m a big believer that you have to grab those opportunities when they’re there, whether as a franchisee or franchisor.
“And having been there myself, I know exactly what franchisees are facing. Whatever challenges they come across, me and the team have the answers.”
