Peter Tourian – Founder & CEO of SYNERGY HomeCare

Tourian founded and operates two emerging franchise companies out of Phoenix, Arizona. SYNERGY HomeCare is a non-medical in-home senior care company, and Araya Clean is a power-washing franchise.

Before becoming an entrepreneur, Tourian served as a deputy in the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, and that’s where he developed an appreciation for a strict morning regimen. Every day he gets up at 5:30 a.m. and spends 30 minutes checking his email and industry news before a 30-minute workout. Then he very specifically has two cups of tea, each loaded with 60 mg of caffeine, three tablespoons of sugar, one spoon of honey, and some lemon juice–the intense sugar rush is to help with his exercise recovery.
