The Flying Locksmiths (TFL) is a white collar business management franchise. As Physical Security Specialists, not just locksmiths, TFL’s technicians are well versed in a large array of commercial security work. While each technician is equipped, trained and capable of rekeying locks and installing them – they can offer much more. The locksmith franchise is a scalable franchise. We have a national call center that manages all prospective customer inquiries through a toll free number. We educate the customer about our services, give an estimate when appropriate, schedule the job, and route the job through our centralized process.
The Flying Locksmiths has been in business for over 70 years. Our experience and business education are two of the main components that create the framework of The Flying Locksmiths leadership team. It began with William McMenimon Sr., working out of his Jeep with one key machine in 1946. He was training to become a pilot and working as a locksmith, hence the reason for the unusual name. He opened a small key shop in Boston and later moved to the nearby suburb of Randolph, where the storefront is still located 30 years later. When William retired, he passed the business down to his sons; Barry and Brad, who expanded the company into the highly recognizable business it is today! Barry’s sons, Brett and Barry P, have also joined the leadership team, infusing the well-established family business, with the convenience of modern technology. The combination of generations has created a blend of old-school ideals and new age tech, resulting in a mix that offers the newest products with a friendly neighborly smile. The mission of the company is simple: provide top of the line security, utilizing all means of communication, while staying true to family values.
