Veteran Franchisees Play a Key Role in Pop-A-Lock's Global Success
LAFAYETTE, La., Nov. 7, 2014 // PRNewswire // -- With Veterans' Day fast approaching, Pop-A-Lock – the country's largest and most reliable security company – remains committed to hiring veterans as both franchisees and employees working within the operational functions of the international franchise system. In recognition of their sacrifice, Pop-A-Lock will feature a veteran and his or her inspirational story throughout November on its Facebook page and social media outlets.
Of the Pop-A-Lock franchisees in the United States, 15 percent are owned by veterans. In addition, Entrepreneur Magazine has consistently ranked the franchise in the "Top 500 Franchises" each year since 2007 and was listed among the "Top 50 Franchises for Veterans" by USA Today.
"At Pop-A-Lock, we value and honor the men and women who have made the commitment to serve our country and put their lives on the line," said Don Marks, CEO of Pop-A-Lock. "The skills they earned while on active duty and their ability to operate in times of pressure has prepared them well for the business world."
Since Pop-A-Lock was founded in 1991, the franchise has shown their dedication to veterans beyond hiring. The company provides discounts on technology security training for new veteran employees in addition to a discount on the franchising fee to assist veterans in transitioning their careers after their military service. Pop-A-Lock also offers a 10 percent discount on security services for active duty and retired military families.
