Los Angeles is a city of dreams. Every year thousands of people come here to chase their dreams of being an actor, model or some other type of star. Our owner, Ben Jacoby, came here with a very different dream: The American Dream.

Growing up in Israel, Ben always had a quest to do more, and be better. He envisioned a life in America where he could start a business, grow it through hard work, and achieve his piece of The American Dream. Before he could chase that fantasy though, he’d serve in the Israel Defense Force. His time there taught him about hard work and sacrifice like few other experiences can.

Armed with the knowledge that he could achieve anything through hard work, Ben made his way to Los Angeles at the young age of 22. With nothing more than a few locksmithing tools and a dream, Ben built Kardo Locksmith on a reputation of service, ethics, and caring.
