Before launching his Lockfit franchise in South Birmingham, Tony worked in telecoms, making long commutes every day around the country.
He first considered investing in a business in the locksmith industry after researching the locksmith industry.
“I’d spent practically all of my career working in telecoms but I’d grown increasingly tired of living the same day, every day. I decided to leave my job after finding out more about the locksmith industry. I wanted to start a business, but I was hesitant about some of the risks that were involved when going at it alone, so franchising seemed like a very good option.”
After researching franchising opportunities in the locksmith sector, Tony considered various providers.
He was intrigued by the level of expertise in the Lockfit network and their professional and transparent approach to the market.
“I met with the lockfit team in Solihull and was very impressed by the founder, Kevin Russell, his ethos and his beliefs. I also met with two of the other directors Andy Moore and Eddy Ankrett and that really reinforced my belief that Lockfit was a brand that I wanted to be associated with.
“I launched Lockfit (Birmingham South) in May and my experience, so far, has been extremely positive. Buying a franchise has enabled me to achieve a better quality of life – I now spend a lot less time commuting! and more time with my family.
In only 6 short months, Tony has established himself as one of the most well-respected locksmith providers in his area, and is looking at expanding into a second territory.
“It’s a real pleasure to work with people, like Kevin, who have a passion for the industry. With a growing national network and a reputation for excellence, Lockfit franchisees are leading providers of locksmith services.
