LAFAYETTE, La., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pop-A-Lock™, America's largest security company, today announced the launch of its Veterans Program. The program encourages franchise ownership by veterans, hiring of veterans and wounded veterans as security technicians and call center representatives, as well as offers discounts to our nation's active duty and retired military personnel.
"Our military are the cornerstone of our nation's strength. They exemplify the character of America. At Pop-A-Lock, we have built our company through hard work, strong ethics and exemplary character, which squares nicely with military culture," said Rob Reynolds, Director of Operations of Pop-A-Lock, 1st Lieutenant, U.S. Army (Ret.). "Pop-A-Lock offers a phenomenal opportunity for veterans as employees, as well as franchisees. Whether in the field, in our call centers, or from their home, veterans have a place within our system where they can excel and grow for their career; it's not just a job."
Pop-A-Lock has shown a long commitment to our nation's military heroes: the company already has 194 franchises owned by 17 veterans across the country; it provides discounts on basic and high technology security training for new veteran employees; as well as a discount on the franchising fee to help launch veterans in their career after the military. In addition, Pop-A-Lock offers a 10% discount on security services for active duty and retired military and their families. Pop-A-Lock has also just been chosen as one of the nation's Top 50 Franchises for Veterans by USA Today.
"The debt to our military heroes can never fully be paid, but we feel we can show our tremendous gratitude by welcoming veterans into the Pop-A-Lock family," Reynolds added.
