The ground role of Signal 88 Security is to provide security to commercial and individual customers through the work of mobile patrols, alarm signals and the care of security officers. The company’s services are tailored to each client. The company has worked hard to build a professional trustworthy reputation, which in turn gives peace of mind to their customers.

Ashwin Antony, Director of the UK Master Franchisee said, “I was impressed by the CEO of Signal 88 Franchise Group. What he has already achieved and his vision for the potential for the service in the USA and around the world are impressive. My research confirmed that the potential market for Signal 88 is huge and that there are very few operators offering the patrol service model which is core to Signal 88’s business.”

“I was convinced of the huge potential and my colleagues and I enthusiastically decided to proceed. We have received great initial training and launch support. And, we are confident that we have a winner on our hands. We are looking forward to building Signal 88 South East regional franchise network,” Mr Antony said.
