Who We Are

Signal 88 Security is the nation's leading security franchises for residential, commercial, retail and institutional customers. Built on the principle that safety is a basic human right and need, Signal 88 offers customized services to keep communities free from harm. This includes the brand's unique patrol method—in which a Signal 88 Security vehicle comes on site a number of times per night to scope out the designated area—as an effective and economical means to deter crime. Signal 88 launched its franchise opportunity in 2008 and currently has more than 300 locations run by local owners and operators nationwide.

Why Signal 88?

Signal 88 has successfully transformed the security sector. What sets us apart is the support and technology suite that allows each franchise to stay focused on customers and officers in their market.  Franchisees have access to an unequaled pool resources to develop their business, like industry-leading software for efficient operations to Business Coaches who will help you set a business plan and achieve your goals. Our administrative teams help process your payroll and guide Franchisees on invoicing and collections. A spirit of collaboration keeps franchisees connected through Franchise Owner mentor groups, regional training, weekly webinars, and even a book club. The high point of every year for the Signal 88 community is the annual Convention, where we present initiatives and tools for the year ahead and celebrate the succcesses of our franchise family. Signal 88 Franchise Owners represent a brand of true difference and meaning in the industry and in their communities. Passion for their business, community, and family are key factors that drive the achievement of a Signal 88 franchise partner. Along with the support of our corporate office, these elements combine to create what we believe is unstoppable momentum toward success.

The Industry

What do people really want from a security company? Peace of mind. Security matters to everyone who lives, works, plays, shops, and does business in our communities. Security is a needed, recession-resistant service, thereby creating the opportunity for our franchise partners to build sustainable and scalable businesses. We believe that through the services we provide, creating peace of mind is an opportunity without limits. It is an industry that our people are proud to be in.

The security industry is made up primarily of large, global competitors and local sole proprietors. This leaves a large gap in the middle, and this is where Signal 88 finds its unique niche. While many providers of security were founded decades ago, Signal 88 was born during the technology age. Accordingly, our modern service model is centered upon cutting-edge technology and the people who use it. This is a modern approach to a very old, but growing, industry. And we are achieving success!
