Why You May Want to Start a Security 101 Franchise
Security 101 is a national franchisor with the focused advantage of local ownership. This may allow the brand to build a broad and loyal customer base on top of being a company known for its high levels of service. With over 15 years of operation, there may be possibilities for recurrent business because of the company's credibility.
All these unique advantages that come with the franchisor may be supported by the industry itself, which is prominent. Security 101 has been ranked in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 several times in the past few years. This ranking is based on an evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
What Might Make a Security 101 Franchise a Good Choice?
To be part of the Security 101 team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for the existence of ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company’s minimum net worth and liquid capital requirements.
As a Security 101 franchisee, you will have access to the company's proprietary business software designed for the franchisee's specific needs and goals, potentially giving you more ability and depth to manage your business with significant operational and financial efficiency. You also should get a protected territory, which means you will not be competing with other Security 101 franchisees anywhere within your area.
How To Open a Security 101 Franchise
Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your journey toward opening a Security 101 franchise, a franchise representative will evaluate you for financial readiness. After determining your financial readiness, a franchise representative will schedule you for a series of introductory and informational phone or video calls with the team.
An essential part of the process is reading Security 101's Franchise Disclosure Document. In this document, you will find all the salient points you need to know about the company, including its unit economics. Once you and the brand have decided to pursue the opportunity together, you will sign the franchise agreement, pay the initial fees, and coordinate with the franchise development team, who will be guiding you along until your grand opening.
