See What Makes DocuLock a Unique Franchise Opportunity

Peace of Mind, Every Time®

Helping Customers – One Document at a Time

Paper. Stuffed into filing cabinets, hidden away in backrooms, and seemingly never available when needed. This dependence on paper creates risk, reduces productivity, and costs businesses tens of thousands of dollars each year.

In 2017, CEO and Co-Founder Paul Janicek opened the first DocuLock location in Saint Joseph, Missouri with a mission to protect customers and their documents. By 2020, remote work made document digitization a necessity, and Paul began exploring franchising as a way to reach more customers in new markets.

Today, DocuLock is looking for entrepreneurial Franchise Partners who believe that there is a better way to preserve, store, and use information.

If this sounds like the opportunity you’ve been searching for, now is the time to reach out. Complete the form below and schedule a short introductory call with our Franchise team.

Franchise Success Story

DocuLock strives to give back to its community and one such way is our partnership with Northwest Missouri State University. We provide a Franchise Territory where the student only pays for their starting franchise fee.

Spencer Engelman was the inaugural winner of this in April of 2023. We believe students start off with enough debt..let’s help at least a few start with a low investment business instead! Since coming onboard, Spencer and his fiance Ariana have done a fantastic job of growing their Franchise Territory out to the point that they have already outgrown their starting space and are needing to hire their first employee!

“Joining Doculock was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made! The amazing leadership and support structure of corporate has allowed us to both grow and learn so much. I highly recommend this opportunity to anyone who has ever thought about trying entrepreneurship.”
