Don Tarinelli

Director of Franchise Development

Don Tarinelli got his first taste of business ownership while in college.  He started a home security dealership in which he spent his time recruiting, training, and leading his sales team.  Originally it was just a way to pay for college, but it also sparked a passion for entrepreneurship so much so that after graduation he continued with his business as opposed to taking a corporate job. 

In 2011 Don completed his MBA and was recruited into the franchise development side of franchising.  Don has worked with several established franchise brands during his time in franchising such as; Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning, CertaPro Painters, Jan-Pro, and Tutor Doctor.  Don is an entrepreneur at heart and enjoys helping others to realize their dream of business ownership through franchising. “Nothing gets me more excited than when I see franchisees that I have worked with build successful thriving businesses that impact their lives, the lives of their clients, and their communities.”

Don resides in southern Utah with his wife and five kids.  They are outdoor enthusiasts and love to hike and enjoy the outdoors in the southwest.  Don has a passion for traveling and has visited over 45 countries.
