Tootl Welcomes New Head of Franchise Development to Leadership Team

Jeff Mathews Joins the Non-Emergency Transportation Brand as the Senior Director of Franchise Development

June 13, 2023 // // NORTHBROOK, Ill. - Tootl Transport, the non-emergency medical transportation company that will be providing the country with reliable wheelchair accessible rides, recently welcomed Jeff Mathews to the team as Senior Director of Franchise Development. Mathews is thrilled to be joining the team to help assist in recruiting the right partnerships for this emerging brand to help bring accessible, quality transportation to communities throughout the country.

“The relationships I build through working in franchising extend beyond just work for me,” said Mathews.

Mathews has over 20 years of experience working in the franchise industry across several different brands. He spent five years working with Neighborly Brands (formerly The Dwyer Group), and nine years as the Senior Vice President of Franchise Development at 9Round and has played a significant role in their growth. Mathews was immediately interested in working with Tootl.

“After a meeting with the Tootl team, I knew that I wanted to be a part of the company,” continued Mathews. “I was blown away by the founders’ commitment to bettering the lives of people and thoroughly impressed by the team of industry experts working along with them to help make their dream a reality. I really believe in the vision and promise of Tootl and am eager to help find the right franchisees to join us on our mission.”

Tootl’s roots go back to 2012, when founder, Michelle Dacy, noticed how challenging it was to get her own grandmother to the numerous doctor’s appointments and other necessary errands. She later established her own wheelchair accessible transportation company.

Steve Greenbaum and Brad Fishman helped the Dacy’s rebrand to Tootl and launch a second location in Milwaukee in 2021, which exceeded all business expectations even during the peak of COVID.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to work alongside Jeff to help support Tootl as we begin our expansion journey,” stated Greenbaum. “The experience he brings from his work in the franchise industry and his commitment to cultivating successful partnerships are exceptional assets to the brand. His addition to the team will allow us to find the right franchisees needed to help continue expanding Tootl’s reach to new communities throughout the country.
