Darryl Sangster is a Prairie guy at heart, who has lived in the Okanagan with his three daughters since 2015. Born in Yorkton, SK. Darryl grew up playing hockey and attended Notre Dame in Wilcox, SK. and settled in Saskatoon, SK. to build his professional career and raise his family. Having lived in Saskatchewan for close to 40 years, Darryl’s character and work ethic is that of a hard-working small-town guy.
Darryl has failed more than most and is proud to have those life lessons under his belt. In true Entrepreneur fashion, he understands that success doesn’t come without failures and its those painful failures that formed an integral part of his success today. Throughout the past 20 years, Darryl built a franchise system that incorporated manufacturing, distribution and over 40 retail franchises under the brand Sangster’s Health Centres, and lead the company to achieve the Highest Franchise Award in Canada – the 2009 CFA Award of Excellence.
Behind the scenes, Darryl’s Franchise Business Model was a fully integrated franchise system, incorporating Manufacturing, Distribution, Leasing, Retail and Franchisees. Darryl sold his franchise system in 2017 and started a business called Sangster Franchise Group in 2019 that provides education on franchising and franchise system optimization to Franchisors. In 2020 Darryl partnered up within business to bring Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control into the Okanagan Region, serving the entire Okanagan corridor from Enderby in the North through to Osoyoos in the South.
