Zabi Kator of guardNOW Interviewed About “Franchising Your Business”

A FRANCHISOR DISCUSSES FRANCHISING AND ISSUES THAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHEN FRANCHISING YOUR BUSINESS: As a franchise lawyer who helps entrepreneurs “franchise their business” and‚ as a managing member of my own franchise company‚ I am always looking for “battle tested” experience and advice to share with our clients.  That is‚ more than just legal advice and franchise compliance programs we look to establish a “knowledge base” to share with our clients and the overall franchise community.  To this end‚ recently‚ I had the privilege of interviewing Zabi Kator‚ the founder and franchisor  of guardNOW‚ a company that specializes in providing private security services to various customer/client segments.

The guardNOW business is definitely interesting and Zabi had some great insights that I believe will be helpful for both start-up and established franchisors.  Some of the interesting and helpful points discussed by Zabi‚ included:

In addition to the great advice offered by Zabi‚ one marketing aspect of the guardNOW business that I was impressed with related to its niche marketing approach. guardNOW‚ in my observation‚ has taken a great service‚ branded it and markets it – not to just the general public – but niche customers‚ i.e.‚ brides looking for wedding security‚ business events‚ personal security‚ etc…  The learning point here is that when you franchise your business‚ it will be important to for you to center your marketing on a targeted client base.

Personally‚ I am grateful that Zabi spent the time sharing his experience. To listen to the interview and obtain a complimentary copy of the interview on CD‚ links and a complimentary order form are listed below.
