Leo is one of the most passionate franchisors in the industry. After emerging on the franchise scene in 2015, when he introduced his first concept The Patch Boys, Leo’s concept quickly took off. He grew that business to 125+ locations across the country and in early 2020, he was bought-out by BELFOR Franchise Group.

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 at the same time, meet a real need to keep homeowners safe from dryer fires. Leo is taking his knowledge and passion to create a business that is capable of helping entrepreneurs reach their full potential in business.
