About Us

SIGNAL is the #1 provider of physical security and mobile patrols in a variety of property segments. We’ve achieved this success through local franchise ownership, technology, and a national brand presence supported by headquarters, called the Franchise Group. In franchising, a local entrepreneur is in business for themselves, but not by themselves. With a team of 55+ highly-engaged staff at the Franchise Group, SIGNAL franchisees have access to business coaching and support in marketing, sales, operations, technology, payroll, billing, compliance, and accounting. We were founded in Omaha, Nebraska in 2003 and launched our franchise offering in 2008. SIGNAL now has over 140 owners operating in 400+ territories in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

The vision of SIGNAL is to provide an innovative approach to security services for residential, commercial, and industrial clients based on a fundamental belief that safety is a basic human right and need. Our vision statement is “we’re here to provide peace of mind to pursue your passion in life.” What this really means is that we recognize our clients have a purpose, which they can only fulfill if their physical environment is safe and secure. A healthy and safe environment gives neighbors and local organizations the opportunity to prosper.

The Industry

What do people really want from a security company? Peace of mind. Security matters to everyone who lives, works, plays, shops, and does business in our communities. Security is a needed, recession-resistant service, thereby creating the opportunity for our franchise partners to build sustainable and scalable businesses. We believe that through the services we provide, creating peace of mind is an opportunity without limits. It is an industry that our people are proud to be in.

The security industry is made up primarily of large, global competitors and local sole proprietors. This leaves a large gap in the middle, and this is where SIGNAL finds its unique niche. While many providers of security were founded decades ago, SIGNAL was born during the technology age. Accordingly, our modern service model is centered upon cutting-edge technology and the people who use it. This is a modern approach to a very old, but growing, industry. And we are achieving success!

According to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, SIGNAL is:

  • #17 Franchises for Veterans
  • #1 Security Franchises
  • #24 Fastest-Growing Franchises
  • #98 Overall (2021)

SIGNAL is a proud sponsor of G.I. Jobs

Many of Signal’s franchise business owners are military veterans.
