Starting your own Security Business with SHIELD

We are a privately held, family-owned business that prides itself on providing personalized service to our customers. Owner Ken Jezioro understands customers’ needs because he founded SHIELD Security Systems after experiencing a burglary at his own home. He was so frustrated by the limited number of affordable security options that he built his own.

Ken used his prior experience in law enforcement and electronic security to establish the SHIELD Security Systems brand. Our unique background, commitment to clients, customized security solutions and lack of long-term contracts are unmatched in the industry. We are looking for people like you who share our vision and want to grow their own security company.

What to Expect When Starting a Security Franchise

Our three-phase discovery process is carefully crafted to make sure our SHIELD Security Systems franchise owners are a great fit.

First, we will introduce our franchise model and company vision in a teleconference. Together, we’ll discuss the goals you have for your security business. Next, you’ll attend four webinars: a day in the life of a SHIELD franchise owner, a review of our Franchise Disclosure Document, an exploration of SAM (our proprietary account management system), and an introduction to keeping your sales funnel full.

Then, we’ll discuss the opportunities for a SHIELD Security System franchise in your region with a territory analysis. At the end of this process, you’ll be invited to visit our home office in Buffalo for final approval.
