Some people say it takes a lot of guts to give up a comfortable job and start a business. But for Tom Scarda, it was the logical choice to make. Tom garnered eight promotions in his 13 years with the New York City subway system. You might say Tom raced through his career like a speeding train. When he finally slowed down and looked at the big picture, Tom realized that his bosses weren't driving the kind of cars he desired or living in the type of houses he always dreamed of, but business owners were.
Not knowing how to start up or operate a business, Tom chose to buy a franchise. After consulting with FranChoice in 2000, Tom purchased a Maui Wowi Fresh Hawaiian Blends franchise and quickly expanded his operation to three locations. In 2002 Tom was named Maui Wowi’s Franchisee of the Year, and he was also awarded with the Outstanding Support of Franchise Owners honor in 2002. Tom has always been giving of his time and knowledge to franchise owners nationwide. In 2003 Tom took on the role of Director of Regional Support for the greater New York area. In this role, Tom not only helped new franchisees in New York, but was instrumental in growing the Maui Wowi concept nationally. Tom sold his Maui franchise in 2004 and now shares his knowledge and expertise of franchising with people like you who are in search of making a lifestyle change and taking back control of their lives.
If you’re having a problem deciding if franchising is for you, or how to make the transition from a 9 to 5 work day to owning your own destiny, Tom is the person to talk to. Learning about Tom’s first hand experience with franchising will give you insight into how you can realize your dreams too.
Tom resides in Long Island with his wife Gina and their two children. Tom enjoys custom motorcycles, music, public speaking, reading and golf.
Tom’s objective is to guide candidates through the hundreds of business opportunities available so that they can find the business that best matches them. As Zig Ziglar said: If you help enough people get what they want in life, you will get what you want.
