When it comes to providing safety—and the peace of mind that comes with it—Signal 88 franchise prides itself on being different.
Since the launch of its franchise opportunity in 2008, Signal 88 was built on the belief that safety is a basic human right and need. As such, they developed an unparalleled suite of world-class and industry-leading security services for residential, commercial, retail and institutional customers. Today, Signal 88’s services are spread throughout the country. And with the help of more than 170 franchise owners who are dedicated to keeping their local communities safe, the brand is poised for explosive growth in the years to come.
“Signal 88 Security’s franchise system is comprised of people who are used to holding the safety of others as a top priority. These franchisees have helped to create a strong and unique network of Signal 88 ambassadors—one that’s driven to provide safety to their local communities,” said Kevin Jones, the chief development officer at Signal 88.
More than 70 percent of the brand’s franchise system is made up of entrepreneurs who bring with them years of police and military experience. Now, as Signal 88 looks to expand its reach, they’re targeting similar business owners to help lead the charge. In particular, the brand is looking at the entire state of California as a top target market for development. And because the state is made up of more than two million military veterans, Jones believes Signal 88 will thrive on the West Coast.
“Each of our franchise locations has the advantage of having a local owner running them and they’re all 100 percent invested in the community they serve. That emotional connection is something that bigger companies can’t offer,” Jones said. “Given California’s large population of military veterans, we believe we’ll find those same passionate owners that have long made Signal 88’s growing system great.”
Joining the Signal 88 team requires an initial investment ranging from $75,000 to $300,000, and in return, franchisees enlist with a rewarding and fast-growing business opportunity that allows them to give back to their community in a significant way. In California, there are more than 30 territories available. For a franchisee, one territory involves overseeing a population of 100,000 people.
In 2016, Signal 88 Security brought on 25 franchise partners to new service areas, including Colorado Springs, Colorado and San Diego and Sacramento, California. Targeting top growth areas like California, Arizona, Florida, Chicago and Washington D.C., Signal 88 is aiming to partner with 45 to 50 dedicated and passionate franchisees looking to make a difference in their communities for the remainder of the year.
