"As a Soldier that has served my Country for over 22 years, with the understanding that my military career is coming to a close, I was looking for an opportunity to continue my calling of helping to protect people. That opportunity presented itself when I came across the advertisement for becoming a Signal 88 Security franchisee, while I was serving in Mosul, Iraq in 2010.
Since taking the leap of faith in becoming a Signal 88 Franchise, I have been nothing but impressed by the corporate support team from the franchise group. This group of individuals has always answered my desperate calls for help. They understand that their success is ultimately determined by the success of the individual franchises that they support.
Signal 88 Security truly embraces their franchises and understands the value of including the individual franchises in the overall decision making process. Signal 88 is the best choice for my family and me to meet and hopefully exceed both our individual goals and family dreams!"
