I would ask your former employer on what grounds he or she is going to try to prevent you from opening a competing business in a different city. Unless you signed some kind of non-compete agreement or this agreement was part of your contract as an employee of the company, you likely have the right to compete. Again, I would ask for specifics from the former employer for clarification.
