Yesterday we asked Are FRANSERVE Brokers Promoting the Davidovich NY Bagel Franchise Scam?
CEO Alesia Visconti Claims Franserve Also Ejected Davidovich NYC Bagel and Sandwich Franchise
We received an immediate, somewhat indignant denial from Alesia Visconti, CEO of Franserve, Inc. and CEO of Franchise Dictionary Magazine:
I would like to speak with you regarding your recent email blast about FranServe possibly supporting a scam.
That is incorrect.
You have your facts wrong.
We took immediate action when the IFE ejected this brand and did the same without any prompt.
And I personally reached out to the promoters at MFV who put on the expo to clarify their stance.
I can be reached at the number below.
I’m unhappy that you do not have your facts right and put our name in jeopardy.
Alesia Visconti, CFC
While we appreciate Ms. Alesia Visconti’s quick response, a phone conversation would be much more productive if she gets her facts straight regarding her own organization.
As of this morning, numerous Franserve brokers continue to promote the Davidovich NYC Bagel and Sandwich Shop scam.

If Alesia Visconti is correct that Franserve ejected Davidovich NYC Bagel, why are Carol Pratt, Julie & Jon Goldberg, Richard Weintraub, Steve Savoni and likely other Franserve Brokers still promoting the proven and widely discredited franchise scam?
INVITATION TO FRANSERVE LEADERSHIP & MEMBERS: It is our opinion that the FRANSERVE partnership with a known and proven scam artist does a disservice to legitimate franchisors (including IFPG franchise partners), your members, and especially to the franchise buyers who rely on FRANSERVE brokers for trustworthy guidance. However, we are open to alternative viewpoints and interpretations. We invite & welcome explanations, clarifications, rebuttals, and opinions both from IFPG leadership, staff, members and franchise partners.
We are especially interested in hearing which brokers and groups are willing to commit to spreading the word about the risks associated with the Davidovich NYC Bagel & Sandwich Shop and its variations.
