Our Dryer Vent Squad team starts with Leo, one of the most passionate franchisors in the industry. He emerged on the franchise scene in 2015, when he introduced his first concept, The Patch Boys. He grew that business to 125+ locations across the country. The BELFOR Franchise Group acquired The Patch Boys in 2020.

Driven by his commitment to help entrepreneurs prosper in business, Leo founded Dryer Vent Squad in 2020. The new brand is poised to dominate a rapidly growing industry, and meet a real need to keep homeowners safe from dryer fires. Leo is taking his knowledge and passion to create a business to help entrepreneurs reach their full potential in business.
