Long Time Industry Exec Leads New Security Franchise Offering

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Oct 12, 2017

John Nemerofsky previously built and sold a $150 million dollar integration business, and then was VP of Niscayah from its spinout of Securitas, through its sale to Stanley Black&Decker, where he managed an $800M business unit as SVP of Sales and Global Marketing. Now, Nemerofsky has partnered with a Boston-based integration company to offer national franchises, using his experience in the industry to help other individuals build successful integration businesses.

Based on a discussion with Nemerofsky, we examine the franchising approach, fees, and other considerations for those who want to start an integration business, or flip their existing business to a become franchise location.
