Christian Dadulak

Hi, I’m Christian Dadulak, Franchise Advisor at Franchise Sidekick. I have a strong passion for all things business, and it has been a guiding force throughout my career. Prior to my work in franchising, I built a book of business as a financial advisor, where I helped individuals, small businesses, and their employees. Eventually, I transitioned into selling a licensing opportunity, and after witnessing the success of the numerous people I awarded across the country, my family and I decided to open our own location in our local market in March 2020. In September 2020, I decided to start my own franchise consulting business, where I quickly became a top consultant, while also managing the back-end operations of our family business. I have been lucky enough to discuss franchising on Brad Lea's top business podcast "Dropping Bombs," and I co-host my own podcast, the "I Fired My Boss Franchise Podcast." Entrepreneur Magazine recognized our podcast as a top industry podcast in 2022. Today, I am continuing to pursue my passion by sharing my experience with my clients and helping them live life on their own terms through franchising.

Q&A With
Christian Dadulak

What do you love about franchising?

Franchising is the most democratic wealth creation tool in human history, yet it's probably the least talked about or understood. I love that franchising is global in scale, hyperlocal in execution - the franchises in your town is more than likely owned by a neighbor and stakeholder in your community. Beyond that, franchising provides all of the benefits of an independent business plus some special benefits like access to a franchise community for support, mentorship, an eventual exit strategy, and even a growth strategy - growth through acquisition of other franchisee's businesses when they're ready to sell. The franchise model allows people to scale infinitely and to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves.

What do you love about working with clients?

My favorite part of working with clients is helping them to avoid the many mistakes and traps that many people can fall prey to in franchising without the help of a seasoned franchise advisor. I have a passion for educating clients, steering them in the right direction, and empowering them with the right kinds of considerations BEFORE starting a business. I love equipping them with the right questions, insights, and tools to effectively conduct due diligence. I love being apart of their acquisition team! Most of all, I love the texts and photos they send me showing me how well they're doing. That's what it's all about at the end of the day.

Tell us a little about yourself!

I was born and raised in Southern California - I grew up in the suburbs in a town called Santa Clarita, about 35 miles north of Los Angeles. After reading "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki at 18 years old, I developed a deep appreciation for the entrepreneur and for the road less traveled. I have, throughout my career, done door-to-door and business-to-business sales, been a financial advisor, started a non-invasive fat loss and skin tightening clinic with my mom and brother, and owned my own independent franchise consulting business before teaming up with Franchise Sidekick. Today, I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, not too far from where I went to college back in the day at Arizona State University. In my spare time, I love lifting weights & running, hiking, wine tasting, trying new restaurants, traveling, reading all sorts of books, going to mass and deepening my faith, and spending time with the people that matter most. Other hobbies and pastimes are playing guitar, going to personal development & business seminars, occasionally smoking a nice cigar, and I would like to pick up cooking because I'm a terrible chef. Seriously, I can burn water. It's not good.

Favorite sidekick?

I hate to be boring and obvious, but Robin was always my favorite sidekick growing up. Batman was, is, and forever will be my favorite superhero, so it's only natural that I also grew fond of his sidekick. I really appreciate Robin's humility and coachability. He doesn't feel the need to be #1 or in the spotlight; he's there to help his mentor protect Gotham. He's mission-driven, extremely capable, and always there to be Batman's backup.
