Despite challenging trading conditions, Lockforce has enjoyed a record period of sales during lockdown.
Its sales rose by 54% when compared to the same period last year and it seems the locksmith franchise’s fortunes are only going to go up from here.
A number of new franchisees have also recorded incredible monthly performances, showing that the franchise opportunity has potential to be profitable right from the start. Explaining how it has been working tirelessly to support franchisees through this tricky time, Lockforce said:
“When Lockdown was announced the franchise support team got to work to produce daily webinars/podcasts to help all franchisees take action to strengthen their business and understanding in key areas. We are proud to have built a thriving network of local locksmiths that are helping to “Keep Customers Safe”, and to be the most reviewed locksmith business in the UK, with more than 5,000 reviews.”
The franchise also outlined how it has adapted its new starter package to suit the ‘new normal’.
“We are a dynamic and growing locksmith franchise and we have developed our training to successfully onboard during the pandemic. We know that we still need to manage the business carefully through this pandemic, but we remain hugely optimistic that we can continue to grow with the addition of new franchisees and to continue to help our current franchisees grow.”
Lockforce also understands that this is a very difficult time for people across the UK, whether they’ve been furloughed or sadly made redundant. As such, it offered a chance to learn more about franchising from its experienced Managing Director, Sean Taylor, who took the same decision to become his own boss.
Sean discussed the ‘7 Things you NEED to consider when buying a franchise’ without any pressure for anyone to join the Lockforce network. However, if you’re interested in this profitable opportunity, you can find out more on its client page.
