Hi, my name is Frank Caperino and it is a pleasure to meet you. I was born and raised in Hoboken, NJ and have lived in many places during my professional working career. I have lived in New Hampshire, Washington, D.C., Virginia Beach, VA, Naples, Italy (3 years), and Yokosuka, Japan (4 years). I have traveled to 28 countries in my working career. I now live with my wife in San Diego, CA. I have lived in San Diego since 1986. I have two married daughters and three grandchildren. I received a BSEE degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ and an MBA with Financial Emphasis from National University in San Diego.
My electrical engineering degree is what provided for all the extensive travel during my life. I worked for Sperry Univac for fourteen (14) years; during this period, I repaired, installed and instructed U.S. Naval personnel on computer systems aboard ships and at U.S. Naval bases. I have also started several companies over a twenty-six year period, these include: a company for data entry in Mexico under the Maquiladora Program, and a Defense Contractor in San Diego. Most importantly, I was a Multi-Unit Franchisee with 8 Cold Stone Creameries for 15 years. I am ready to share my years of experience with you!! During my time with Cold Stone Creamery, I was very active in building an Association of Cold Stone Creamery Franchisees, NIACCF, Inc. For a two year period, I was also a Financial Planner for Cigna Associates and earned my Certified Financial Planner certification (CFP) during this period. I currently teach two financial courses on-line as an adjunct professor with the University of Phoenix and Colorado Technical University.
I started Franchise Frank to help individuals make an informed and educated decision on what business to start. Services include the following:
