Security 101 Opens 40th Franchise Office in Austin, Texas
The new office is a sign of the company’s momentum and the strength of the overall security market, says Security 101 CEO Steve Crespo.
AUSTIN, Texas — System integration franchise Security 101 has opened its 40th office here. Kevin Schnyder, an experienced IT and physical security professional, is the owner and president of the new franchise.
Most recently Schnyder was an IT manager with the Texas Municipal Power Agency. Previously, he worked with Marathon Oil Corp. in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, West Africa, on facility security, access control and perimeter surveillance.
Opening the 40th U.S. franchise is a milestone for the company and a sign of the company’s momentum and the strength of the overall security market, according to Security 101 CEO Steve Crespo.
“Kevin has the ideal background for his new role at Security 101,” he said. “He has physical security experience combined with a background in IT which is essential for a security integrator today.”
“Austin is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the U.S. with many people calling it a mini Silicon Valley,” Schnyder says. “We’re looking forward to being part of that growth by helping the business community with its security and safety needs.”
Security 101 protects business assets and employees through a systems integration franchise of professionals who work locally to engineer, install, operate, monitor, manage and maintain integrated security solutions.
At the beginning of the year, Security 101 earned a spot in Entrepreneur magazine’s latest Franchise 500, a comprehensive franchise ranking published each year.
Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, according to Security 101. The magazine received more than 1,000 applications for the 39th annual listing, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever.
Recognized as a key resource for potential franchisees, the listing ranked Security 101 at No. 273 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability and brand power.
