Michael Judkins

I'm Michael Judkins, Chief Operating Officer of Franchise Sidekick. Before joining Team Sidekick, I worked in franchise and people operations for 10+ years, was a multi-unit franchisee for a national Massage and Facial brand, and owned a small business marketing agency for four years. I have a passion for helping to create new business owners. The most rewarding part for me is the impact those businesses have on the owners' lives and the communities and families they touch.
