How to connect VOIP phone system at remote office to main office?

Hello Experts,

The owner of the company that I work at purchased another franchise two states away from where I am now.  They are running Verizon FIOS as their isp and we have comcast here as our isp, not sure if that matters or not... They will be running VOIP entirely for their phone system.  I am the only I.T. person here and what I need to know is how do I connect the VOIP phones at that location to our telephone system here?  What information do I need?  Basically how do I do this?

You may need to transition one location to the other provider.
What phone systems do you have at each ?

Do you have the ability to do a site to site VPN ?
