Our Story

Why Key Locos?

Key Locos is all about being different and that starts with the name. I was tired of every other company calling themselves “123 Locations”, “XYZ Locations”, etc. so I shorted this to “Locos”, simply to be different. Locos actually translates to ‘a place or a location’. And yes, we all know it also translates to ‘crazy’, but you have to be a little crazy to be in this business.

Why be different?

It’s simple really. I was shocked at the lack of service from others in this industry, the tricks and sales techniques that they used, and I was determined to be different. I have been service oriented my whole life and focused on providing excellent customer service. I start with trying to help people first and I don’t worry about ‘what’s in it for me’. We strive to build personal relationships with our clients and work with them on a personal level.

What does Key Locos believe in?

To me, it’s all about doing “good business”. I find if you are honest with people and ‘shoot them straight’, people will respect you and will actually want to work with you.
