Experienced Franchisees Expanding in Washington

August 26, 2014 - by Administrative Express Franchising

Congratulations to Jake and Britt Domer on the signing of an expansion office in the East Renton-Union Hill, WA, territory!

This expansion area is unique in its layout and adjacency to the Domers’ current Bellevue territory. It weaves in, alongside, and around their current market area, with a talent pool that crosses over each territory. 

“The geographical and business knowledge of the current Bellevue team will enable us to grow this area aggressively as a combined team and region,” Jake said.

Success with Express
The Domers have successfully grown their three business lines alongside each other, but are reaching the point that optimum growth in each is not being reached due to the blending of time, attention, and operating models. Through this expansion, the Express office will have two locations – one that focuses on professional-level placement and contract business, and one that focuses on executing a traditional operating model. 

Both offices will still leverage combined office operations for efficiency, while also leveraging cross-sell opportunities across clients. Each office, however, will be able to separately develop individual cultures, processes, and metrics best suited for their operations.

“By leveraging our relationships, reputation, and reach across this entire region, we can bring our existing strength to this business,” Jake said. “By segmenting the business to allow for specialization and focus, we can better serve the entire region and become a top-tier staffing provider across all our business lines.”

Continued Growth
The goal for the Domers during the next three years is to continue a high pace of growth and success.

The Domers purchased the Bellevue Express office in March of 2009. With nearly five years in business, the Bellevue Express office did $5.9 million in sales in 2013.

“We are targeting more than $8.5 million in sales this year,” Jake said.

It’s a great time to join Express! For new franchisees awarded between now and Dec. 31, 2014, Express Employment Professionals will pay up to $2,500 per month on the first year’s lease! This is a great way to kickstart your new Express office with a potential savings of up to $30,000.
