June 10, 2008 // Franchising.com // McLean, VA, - Bookkeeping Express is launching a national franchise system. The 20-year-old company is now offering franchise opportunities with an initial investment under $50,000.
"We are riding on the wave of demand for Certified Bookkeepers," says Chief Executive Officer Greg Jones. "Bookkeeping Express will provide businesses throughout the U.S. a reliable, affordable source for excellent bookkeeping services. Our target market is the 26.8 million small businesses in the United States. With our training and certification program, we plan to revolutionize bookkeeping in America!"
Bookkeeping Express offers several unique opportunities to the entrepreneur:
The 2008-2009 Occupational Outlook Handbook from the Department of Labor predicts that the demand for full-service bookkeepers will increase as they are called upon to do much of the work of accountants. Certified bookkeepers and those with several years of experience have the best job prospects, according to the Handbook.
"Our Certified Bookkeepers will offer a unique service in the industry and a protection to our clients," says Chief Operating Officer Robert Stocker. "Often when you hire a bookkeeper, you have no idea of their training, certification or integrity. Every Bookkeeping Express bookkeeper will undergo a thorough training program, will be certified, will be insured, and will have oversight of their bookkeeping activities through Bookkeeping Express."
Coming out of Northern California in 1987, Bookkeeping Express started out selling services to small businesses through a licensing model. Now under new ownership, Bookkeeping Express is offering franchise opportunities in _ states.
The new owners of Bookkeeping Express include Greg Jones, an entrepreneur in the franchising field, who also owns the development rights for Five Guys Burgers & Fries in central Florida; Merritt Green, an entrepreneurial lawyer, fonder and managing partner of General Counsel, P.C. in McLean, Virginia; and Robert Stocker, a management consultant and turn-around expert. The group purchased the rights to Bookkeeping Express in 2007 and moved its headquarters to McLean.
Currently Bookkeeping Express is offering bookkeeping services through locations in McLean and Reston, Virginia. Additional locations in Washington, DC, Rockville and Baltimore, Maryland are scheduled to this summer."
