Pop-A-Lock … A Short History

September 25th, 2013 by Darci Rosenblum / Link to This

When I was considering buying the Pop-A-Lock franchise I did all the due diligence one would do when buying a new business, looking at past financials, researching the market, identifying the competition, etc.  The one thing I didn’t spend a lot of time on is actually researching the history of the company, that is until now.

What I found  is that Pop-A-Lock was born in 1991 when local law enforcement agents in Lafayette, Louisiana recognized the need for a car locksmith in their community. Since then, Pop-A-Lock has grown to become the largest professional locksmithing franchise in the country. The original Lafayette location is now the national training facility and corporate headquarters for Pop-A-Lock.

Pop-A-Lock was also the first to adopt the use of a web based call management platform to assist in performing dispatch functions. It is utilized to receive initial information from customers concerning their issues, regulates pricing of service based on standard pricing practices and performs back office functions for payroll and billing. This alone sets us apart from our competition.

There are many other things that set Pop-A-Lock apart from the other locksmiths out there but my one main finding is that it is our commitment to our customers, which is to utilize the best technology available in order to provide the highest quality service possible.
