Tails Are Wagging for Montana Franchise Owner

We are excited to announce the newest owner of The Dog Wizard: Brian Tallarico. A resident of Montana, Brian is thrilled to begin this next phase of his career working for himself and bringing an in-demand new business to his area.

Who Is Brian Tallarico?

Brian holds a bachelor’s degree in operations management and has been working for the past ten years with a well-known wholesale retail chain. While Brian loved some aspects of his former job, he felt like it was wearing him down and he was ready to try something else. In his mind, self-employment was the route that would make leaving his existing position worthwhile.

Why Did Brian Make a Career Change?

As Brian began considering options that would allow him to work for himself, he started looking into different franchises. He was actually inspired by a history of family success in the franchising world: His own mother had owned a couple of franchises and had seen such strong results that Brian’s interest was still piqued years later.

Overwhelmed by the sheer number of franchising options, Brian decided to turn to FranCoach in order to get some guidance through the Discovery Process. He came to us with a relatively open mind about what kind of business he was looking for, and he was able to work with FranCoach’s Lisa Rios to hone in on The Dog Wizard as his perfect match.

Why Will Brian Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Lisa helped Brian find the franchise that aligned with all of his needs, goals, and expectations. Here’s what she has to say about why Brian will make an excellent franchise owner:

“First of all, Brian is a self-proclaimed data geek. He’s very process-oriented, which will help him shine in the world of franchising. And of course, he has such an overall love and passion for dogs. He has two dogs of his own, Olive and Jake, and his love for them is so apparent. His enthusiasm and dedication to following the plan are sure to bring him success.”

Why Did Brian Choose The Dog Wizard?

The Dog Wizard is a dog training franchise that offers franchisees the opportunity to help people and animals in their community while getting a foot in the door of a $99 billion industry. With a simple and proven model, strong support from the franchisor’s team, and numerous service options for customers, The Dog Wizard sets franchisees up for success from the start.

Brian attended an in-person Discovery Day, where he made great connections with The Dog Wizard’s team. After the fact, he said that he felt like he could see himself having all of them over for a cookout in his backyard – and that’s exactly the kind of relationship he was looking for. While Brian had been considering a home services brand in addition to The Dog Wizard, it boiled down to what he could see himself doing (and enjoying) on a day-to-day basis.

In Brian’s words, “Do I want to spend my time talking about people’s grass or talking about people’s dogs?” It was a no-brainer, and at the end of the day, Brian’s “decision” didn’t feel like a decision at all. Brian is excited to better his canine community with his new business.

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Brian Tallarico and wishing him luck as a new owner of The Dog Wizard!
