The Radio Days

The Franchise Academy Podcast began as a terrestrial radio show on Long Island in January of 2017. It aired every Tuesday on LI News Radio (103.9 - FM). 

Broadcasting LIVE from Islip’s MacArthur Airport, the station continues to bring news, traffic and weather to their east end listeners.

In 2018 The Franchise Academy show became exclusively a Podcast. Keeping  with the spirit of the show, the host, Tom Scarda, CFE, brings the best of franchising and small business to listeners.

In keeping with the mission of the show, listeners hear about best practices of running a franchise, how to go about picking a great franchise to invest in and how to turn your existing business into a franchise.

Guests on the show range from executive level franchise staff to franchise owners to franchise attorneys and any business that brings value to franchise and small business owners.
