Securis Franchising Inc., headquartered in Chantilly, Va., has announced that it has awarded its first three franchises in the Mid-Atlantic region. Securis says its franchising strategy is part of the company’s national expansion to serve growing demand for electronics recycling and data destruction services, a market that is estimated at between $6 billion to $9 billion globally, according to reports by IDC and Transparent Research.
Awards include counties in the Maryland suburbs outside of Washington, D.C., as well as the state of Delaware, with service in these territories slated to begin by summer of 2014. Numerous additional protected territories are available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and North Carolina, with more expected to be released in 2014 and beyond, the company says.
“From the moment we launched the Securis franchise concept in spring 2013, we’ve seen intense interest from hundreds of aspiring business owners who recognize the unique opportunity,” Securis CEO and founder Jeremy Farber says. “After meeting with dozens of prospects, we are very excited to have selected our first three franchisees and look forward to awarding additional territories in 2014.”
Farber adds, “Securis’ clients, including organizations in the federal government, financial services, health care and government contracting sectors, demand world-class data security and environmental stewardship that is delivered consistently across all of their locations. Our franchise expansion helps us put our operations closer to these customer locations so we can better serve them.”
