Mr. Rekey awards 50 new franchises across the US
Mr. Rekey Locksmith, said to be America’s largest residential locksmith, awarded 50 franchise territories nationwide in the second half of 2013. The company has been on a fast-track to expand the reach of its industry-leading locksmith service franchises.
“This is a momentous transition for our company. Awarding these franchises represents years of work from the Mr. Rekey corporate team, and we could not be more pleased with the results,” said CEO Kenneth Jennings.
The 50 franchise territories span over 500 cities and towns across Texas, Colorado, Tennessee, Nevada, Florida, California, Arizona, Virginia, Georgia and Washington. In business for 18 years, Mr. Rekey provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art and quick turnaround locksmith services for real estate professionals in all sectors of the industry, including residential and commercial property management, property sales, new and remodel construction, as well as directly to homeowners.
Mr. Rekey plans to continue the company’s momentum, while also ensuring the best service to franchisees and customers.
“Locksmith services are truly a core trade and valuable skill-set to communities, which is appealing to many looking to own their own business,” continued Jennings. “We’ve been in business for nearly two decades and have a track record of profitable growth that provides a model utilized to train and support our franchisees. We look forward to ongoing franchise expansion in the coming months.”
The company’s operations center, located in greater Austin, provides full-service dispatching, invoicing, collections and scheduling services for franchises, eliminating administrative constraints with streamlined back-office infrastructure and support. Additionally, Mr. Rekey provides franchisees with a variety of strategic components to drive their growth, including marketing and sales system assistance based on years of real-world operations and growth.
Mr. Rekey believes that tenants and new homeowners should rekey their locks before spending the night in their new home, and businesses should rekey locks as an ongoing facet of their security protocol.
