Locksmith Franchise Overview
The Flying Locksmiths has been in business for over 70 years. Our experience and business education are two of the main components that create the framework of The Flying Locksmiths leadership team. It began with William McMenimon Sr., working out of his Jeep with one key machine in 1946. He was training to become a pilot and working as a locksmith, hence the reason for the unusual name. He opened a small key shop in Boston and later moved to the nearby suburb of Randolph, where the storefront is still located 30 years later. When William retired, he passed the business down to his sons; Barry and Brad, who expanded the company into the highly recognizable business it is today! Barry’s sons, Brett and Barry P, have also joined the leadership team, infusing the well-established family business, with the convenience of modern technology.
The combination of generations has created a blend of old school ideals and new age tech, resulting in a mix that offers the newest products with a friendly neighborly smile. The mission of the company is simple: provide top of the line security, utilizing all means of communication, while staying true to family values.
The locksmith franchise development is being spearheaded by Dennis Mulgannon of Franchise Scale who has successfully launched Junk King and Home Care Assistance into national brands. Our locksmith franchise model is adaptable as an owner operator model (not working in the van), transitional model from another career, or straight ROI model with general manager in place running day to day. We are seeking prospects looking to scale a business and manage a P & L versus working in the field. We have a national call center that manages all prospective customer inquiries through a toll free number. We educate the customer about our services, give an estimate when appropriate, schedule the job, and route the job through our centralized process.
