Local Chauffeur Car Firm

Recommended Posts

Was talking to the owner of a local chauffeur car firm the other day; in the last year he's seen business decline by 30% and has reduced his workforce from ten people to two. Many of the local firms that used to give him regular trade have either stopped travelling (the run to the airport was a steady earner for him) or gone out of business. A sideline has always been guided chauffeur tours of the town and bookings have fallen from two or three per week to maybe one a month. Everyone is seeking cheaper alternatives or just not spending money and in a very discreet way pain is starting to set it out there.

A mate of mine runs a business which is very much in the "discretionary spending" category. He was doing pretty well in 2008, but it dropped off a cliff in 2009 and so far 2010 has been no better.

He thinks that will be the new long trend and is looking at doing something different come the end of the year.
