Own a Business That Makes a Difference.
Who We Are
Signal 88 is the #1 provider for physical security and mobile patrols in a variety of property segments. We’ve achieved this success through local franchise ownership, technology and a national brand presence supported by headquarters, called the Franchise Group. In franchising, a local entrepreneur is in business for themselves, but not by themselves. With a team of 50+ highly-engaged staff at the Franchise Group, Signal 88 franchisees have access to business coaching and support in marketing, sales, operations, technology, payroll, billing, compliance, and accounting. Signal 88 was founded in Omaha, Nebraska, by a deputy sheriff in 2003 and launched its franchise offering in 2008. Signal 88 now has over 120 owners operating in 350+ territories in the United States Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
Why Signal 88?
As a Signal 88 Security partner, you bring peace of mind to your customers and your community, allowing them – and you – to pursue passion in life. For our international franchise partners, Signal 88 becomes a way to achieve control over their lives and enables them to spend more time participating in what’s most meaningful to them. They 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.
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!
