Beginning in 1995, Best Chauffeured Worldwide has grown from a one-person, one-limousine business, to an award-winning first class transportation provider with a fleet of more than 70 limousines and over 140 employees. Starting with the purchase of one limousine, Best Chauffeured founder Robert Vaughn has led the company through an impressive expansion. Their commitment to providing guests and clients with the freedom to make the most of their time – and their life – whether for business or leisure travel, has earned Best Chauffeured Worldwide an enviable reputation within the premium transportation services industry. In addition to serving an array of Fortune 500 executives, VIPs, celebrities, and leisure travelers, the company continues to distinguish itself by its involvement within the community. Organizations such as Make A Wish Foundation, Choc Children’s Hospital and Living the Dream Foundation are just of few non-profit organizations that have benefited from Best Chauffeured and their volunteer efforts.
It did not take long for the “Best” business model to begin garnering several top industry awards. These include Limousine, Charter, and Tour (LCT) Operator of the Year, Best Limousine Service in OC (multiple recipient), Meeting Planners International (MPI) Supplier of the Year, OC Concierge Association Supplier of the Year, and numerous others. Although the company endured severe economic hardship due to a crippling recession and the fall-out of 9/11, Robert Vaughn and his father, a key investor in the business, persevered and never wavered in their quest to become successful. They even succeeded in establishing the chauffeur occupation as one that is now looked at as a legitimate profession by offering employee benefits that include 401k programs and health insurance, along with higher wages. From a technology standpoint, Best Chauffeured Worldwide and strategic partner Livery Coach Solutions helped pioneer a range of tech enhancements. These include automated e-mail reservation confirmations, integrated reservation and dispatch modules, GPS Tracking in all company vehicles, and several other notable innovative advancements. The result is a more seamless and user-friendly service for clients, enabling them to have greater flexibility in their business and leisure travel.
