Success Story

The Flying Locksmiths

When we have a question about government contracting or need help defining a government business development strategy, we can count on Don to be there with the expertise, information, and resources to help us succeed.

Terry Bunch and his team at The Flying Locksmiths have swooped into Jacksonville. As a one-stop shop, the company’s team of nationally certified technicians provide 24/7/365 locksmith services to government agencies, retail establishments, professional businesses, and residential customers. As Terry says, “We are proud of our customer service and satisfaction. We are dedicated to giving every customer fast and friendly service!”

In 2015, as a newly established business, one of Terry’s first landing spots was at the Florida SBDC at the University of North Florida. From the beginning, Terry saw the many government contracting opportunities here in Jacksonville, so he got started by attending an FSBDC Government Contracting workshop. Afterwards, with a good grasp of the fundamentals, he began to work one-on-one with Don Zavesky, the FSBDC Government Contracting Consultant. Together, Terry and Don have worked to develop a government business development plan, find locksmith service opportunities for government agencies, submit proposals, and win government related work. Since then, Terry and his team of locksmiths have begun providing service at multiple area military installations, government buildings, municipal agencies, and school districts. In addition, The Flying Locksmiths is also keeping buildings secure for many establishments such as Costco, Lenscrafters, Walmart, Target, Lowes, CVS, Sears, Hyatt, and Coca-Cola, to name a few.

The growth and success of this company has been phenomenal. Through their teamwork and dedication to customer service, The Flying Locksmiths is off the ground and soaring high with government business and commercial customers – here in Jacksonville! The FSBDC is proud to be associated with Terry Bunch and the entire team at The Flying Locksmiths.
