    Tommy Hoopsick


    Tommy Hoopsick owns two DUCTZ Franchises. He was home schooled all his life and began working in his parents asphalt company as a teenager. After he graduated high school, Tommy began working at a distribution center for Food Lion Grocery Stores. While working night shift at the warehouse, he would also work during the day with then current owner of DUCTZ of Richmond Southside, Russell Dixon, or for his parents in the asphalt business. After Tommy began working for DUCTZ, Russell noticed his ambition, and started planning his offer for Tommy to purchase the franchise. At 19 years old Tommy became the youngest owner in the history of the BELFOR Franchise Group. So, in 2012, Tommy began cold calling and building his franchise. At the same time business was picking up, Tommy was looking to expand. He met with the current owner of the DUCTZ location in Philadelphia and began the process of buying that location as well. The purchased was finalized in December 2016 and Tommy worked with BELFOR Franchise Group to adjust the territory and location to better fit his needs. In the large market of Philadelphia, Tommy and his team are busy growing the business and giving their customers the best experience possible. In his free time, Tommy reads books to help him improve his businesses, attends self developed and networking events, and is always looking for the next opportunity.
