Taking control of his own destiny was the motivation for Rick Vadnais to become a Premier Rental-Purchase franchisee. Rick is a rent-to-own industry veteran having been in the industry for 28 years! Rick began his RTO career as an account manager and held several different positions throughout the years within multiple companies. “The empowerment of controlling your own destiny is my main reason for becoming a business owner.” Once he was ready to run his own business, Rick reached out to Trooper Earle, President & CEO of The Premier Companies, to learn about the benefits of becoming a Premier franchisee. “The personal service that I received from Trooper played a role in my decision to become a Premier franchisee; I didn't feel like a number. Trooper personally interacted with me and was involved in making sure I had everything that I needed when going for funding.” Shortly after Rick opened his first Premier Rental-Purchase store in Syracuse, New York (2005), he teamed up with Dean Carusone, another industry veteran. They were able to open their second location in Central Square, New York, three years later. They are now celebrating the fourth anniversary of that store. “The support from The Premier Companies is a great help. We take advantage of the human resources and accounting services, and participate in the buying group which is very rewarding for all of us,” said Rick. Rick and Dean do not plan on stopping at two stores. Rick's goal is to be a multi-store owner with three or four locations.
