Franchising is a proven concept in many business sectors that enables individuals to own a business. Franchises combine local presence and ownership in the community with national backing and support. Our nationwide network is with you every step of the way, helping minimise risk and achieve success.

When you buy a franchise, you are buying an established, tested and proven business model and brand.

With more than 40% of our franchise owners being current or former military or law enforcement personnel, we have a strong military network and pride ourselves on being a military friendly franchisor.

Security staff with military backgrounds

When you invest in Signal 88 Security, you invest in your future. This is your opportunity to take something you have experience doing and turn it into a business that allows you to not only be your own boss, but to be in control of your own success. Although the Franchise Group will be supporting you every step of the way, you will be in charge and won’t have to rely on anyone else for your achievements.

Because military veterans are uniquely positioned for the private security sector, Signal 88 actively looks for veterans with an entrepreneurial spirit and desire to own their own business. Most Signal 88 franchises start off as home-based franchises, which greatly reduces overhead and allows Signal 88 to maintain relatively low start-up costs. Signal 88 Security also offers a veteran discount for all qualified and honourably discharged veterans.

About Signal 88 Security

Signal 88 Security was founded in 2003, in Omaha, Nebraska. The term ‘signal 88’ is Nebraska police code for ‘situation secure’. In 2008, with a vision to revolutionise the security industry, Signal 88 Security began franchising and sold its first franchise in Arizona. From its Omaha, NE roots, Signal 88 Security has quickly grown to providing services across the country, with more franchises opening each month.
