Quality Since 1925

Our History

Sarasota Lock & Key Shop traces it’s beginning back to late 1925 when Arthur “Art” Esters bought the Sarasota Typewriter and Key Shop. The same year George, nicknamed “Pete,” was born. In 1956, Pete became associated with the business when he and his wife purchased the business from his parents.

On June 21, 2004, Robert Burbeck bought the business and has continued to operate the business as Sarasota Lock & Key Shop. The shop relocated to 1668 Main Street until 2009, when it moved to it’s current location on 1342 N Lime Avenue.

Robert Burbeck has been in the lock & key business for 56 years. He previously owned American Lock and Key Shop of Manasota in Bradenton and shops in Ft. Lauderdale and Brooksville, Florida.

The company is bonded and insured and a member of ALOA (Associated Locksmiths of America). Robert is also SAVTA (Safe and Vault Technicians Association) and NSO (National Safemans Organization) certified. The company is also a member of the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, LWRBA (Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance) and the SAR (Sarasota Association of Realtors).

Sarasota Lock & Key Shop LLC is growing along with Sarasota and Manatee Counties. They sell locks and keys, safes and other security products from their new showroom at 1342 N. Lime Ave. as well as from their service vehicles on the road.
