FranCoach and The Flying Locksmith Secure Another New Franchisee


Ken Blalock is the latest former corporate executive to become a FranCoach success story. After nearly 30 years as a corporate executive that spanned multiple locations around the US, Ken was ready to take control of his life and career. Ken liked how the Director of Projects role he held the last 20 years translated into the owner role and business model of The Flying Locksmith. Ken was also excited about the scalability TFL offered which led to him carving out most of the St. Louis metro area for his new business.

Who is The Flying Locksmith?

The Flying Locksmith has been in business for close to 70 years but only entered the world of franchising in the last few years.  In spite of being relatively new to offering franchises, the company has experienced rapid growth due to their strong business model, the internal support they offer their franchisees, and their recession-resistant products and services.

The Flying Locksmith features an executive model business that operates almost exclusively with a commercial clientele, many of which are frequent, repeat customers. The company’s years of high quality service has helped forge partnerships with some of the largest companies in the US. These partnerships help new franchisees gain quick traction in their territories thanks to the decades of work the home office has done.

FranCoach would like to congratulation Ken and The Flying Locksmith and wish this partnership the best of luck.

“I remember when I first started exploring the idea of franchises and I found the Franchising 101 Podcast. I just got hooked. There were such good snippets of information and I started eating through them and listening to them all the time.”

Geoff, Pennsylvania

“The conversation we had, just on that first call, when you said, ‘Tell more about Ryan, what flips your switch, what gets you out of bed in the morning’… it was really important to me to know those things upfront.”

Ryan, Alabama

“One of the lessons that I learned very quickly was to focus on what is driving you as an individual. What makes you get up, and what do you want to get up and do every day?”

George, Pennsylvania
