Growth & expansion opportunities:

The seller admits there is substantial potential for growth. However, he is "old school" and has not taken advantage of new and expanded services as he had "plenty of work and business already!" Here are a few key areas where a new owner could experience very measurable growth potential: 24 hours service. Safe Deliveries. Safe Services and opening (particularly big safes.) Keypad, proximity and bio metric locks. Sales and Installation of mag locks and magnetic strikes Automotive lockouts Smart Houses are a whole new area to exploit including cvtv systems.


There are 5 locksmiths in the Tallahassee area which have walk in shops. This business is the largest and most complete shop in the area! Two of the other shops have limited services and the other two are set up for outside services. This business is the only shop in the area that makes retail a large, successful part of its operation. Of course, there are a dozen or so "mobile" locksmiths and handy men that offer locksmith "services." Some have training and skill while others are "winging it." The sharpening division of the business is sort of "lost art form." There is no measurable competition and what little exists is merely a side line of a key shop. This business is the only fully professional sharpeners in North Florida. The only source for area printing houses with paper cutting knives ranging from 16 to 84 inches.
