SUBWAY Attorney Joins Spy Store Franchise

Attorney Linda Church, formerly of The Scott Kern Law Office in Connecticut, has joined fledgling franchisor The Spy Place Franchising, LLC, as General Counsel.


After attending law school at the Quinnipiac University School of Law,  Ms. Church joined the legal department at Doctors Associates Inc. the franchisor for the Subway franchising system.   She was a key member of its Dispute Resolution Group, and oversaw the creation of the Subway franchise audit metric which was, according to a company release, “designed to create transparency and accountability to franchisees going through an audit.”

The Spy Place is a Fort Wayne, IN-based franchisor start-up founded by CEO Ray Huck.  The Spy Place will first début its franchise opportunity at the International Security Conference West  in Las Vegas, from April 1 through April 3, 2009.

According to the company:

The Spy Place, is a retail operation that engineers, sells and installs affordable Remote Viewing Video Surveillance Systems, (CCTV, Covert camera Systems, ‘Nanny Cams’) allowing businesses and homeowners alike, the ability to view their home or business from any internet-connected computer in the world, allowing for 24 hour real time viewing and, at the same time, providing a permanent digital record of all events that happened in their absence. The Spy Place also offers Computer Tracking Software, GPS Tracking Software, Lighting and Access Control Systems, Biometrics, and also provides Bug Detection Services for attorney’s and corporations.

The Spy Place services Homeowners, Business, Municipalities and Law Enforcement Agencies to name a few.  The Spy Place also offers a ‘James Bond Type’ Surveillance Retail Store, which adds to the excitement and mystique of The Spy Place brand.

Having an in-house General Counsel may seem like overkill for a franchisor with one store and no franchisees… then again, with a business based on spying it may be justified.
