Industry Performance

The locksmith industry accounted for more than $2 billion in revenue throughout the 2019 year, growing an average of 4.3% annually over the preceding five-year period. Demand for locksmithing services is tied to the performance of the construction and housing markets, both of which are steadily increasing. Businesses depend on locksmiths to install mechanical locks, doors, gates, safes, and security systems, while homeowners, property managers, and landlords rely on locksmiths for general locksmithing services and security system installation. Projected growth for this market over the next year is forecast at 4.7%, owing to an increase in homeownership and commercial development.

Training & Support

No previous locksmithing knowledge or experience is necessary, as we provide all necessary instruction and guidance throughout the course of our training program, which covers all aspects of operation and management of your new business under the Pop-A-Lock brand. Administration, human resources, accounting, best practices, industry standards, advertising, and marketing are all covered during the onboarding process, which takes place at our corporate facilities in Lafayette, Louisiana. The program is followed by technical training for you and your staff on the proper function and application of our proprietary equipment and techniques. Ongoing support is provided through advertising and marketing strategies and materials, while guidance and advice are never more than a phone call away.
