About the DCW Companies

The DCW name represents the singular vision of its founder and principal, Andrew J. Drucker. A native of New York, Andrew first developed the concept of the DCW Companies while practicing law as an attorney with a large, nationally-recognized Philadelphia law firm. After a short period of time in the practice of corporate business and transactional law, Andrew quickly realized that his aspirations for creating successful businesses would never be realized by servicing clients as an attorney.

Andrew then left Philadelphia and relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina where he began his first foray into the business world. Andrew’s first venture was the opening of a large, franchise-branded, child-care center that soon become a highly successful operation with 30 employees and annual sales in excess of $1,000,000. Following this critical first step, Andrew then opened a second franchise location of this same brand and enjoyed even greater success. Andrew continued the development of several additional centers and is planning to open his fifth center in 2010, with plans for an additional 5 more centers in the Charlotte Area over the next few years.

While child-care operations continue to take up much of Andrew’s time and efforts, Andrew spends increasingly more energy on the growth of his other entities, including real estate development and business consulting. Andrew’s real estate company, DCW Development, has recently completed construction of its first commercial project and is beginning construction on its next project in July 2009.

In addition to his real estate development operations, Andrew has also begun offering and providing business consulting services to clients in several different industries. This new venture, DCW Consulting, offers several types of support services to individuals and companies in a variety of areas such as child-care and educational consulting, human resource and human capital consulting, legal and real-estate consulting, as well as advice and direction on successfully buying and selling businesses.


"I retained DCW Consulting to assist me in the implementation of certain quality control initiatives and to receive guidance on dealing with particular human resource issues related to my growing sheet metal fabrication business. Mr. Drucker visited my location and spent several days on site observing my operating and meeting with my employees. Mr. Drucker then helped me create an action plan designed to increase my company's productivity, reduce the inefficiencies in my operation, and assist me in managing my sales leads more effectively. The visit was highly successful and by employing the action plan Mr. Drucker devised, I am pleased to report that I am seeing excellent results in just two short months. Thank you DCW Consulting."
