Transportation and Logistics Franchise Drives Strong Growth in 2013
BlueGrace(R) Logistics to Add 15 Locations This Year
RIVERVIEW, Fla., July 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- After experiencing more than 7,000 percent growth over the past three years, BlueGrace Logistics' momentum is still going strong. The transportation and logistics company, ranked as the fastest growing, privately owned company on the 2012 Inc. 500 | 5000 list to offer franchise opportunities, is on track to add an additional 15 locations this year.
The company has a strong presence in the South and Midwest United States and is gaining traction throughout the rest of the country, most recently opening new franchise locations in Washington and Idaho.
"Our exponential growth is due, in part, to the ever-growing demand for logistics and shipping management services," said Bobby Harris, President and CEO of BlueGrace Logistics. "The other part of that equation is our people. Happy, productive employees and franchisees are at the foundation of our business. Our growth and continued success is contingent upon their successes as individuals, so we do our best to create an enjoyable and motivating company culture that people are excited to be a part of."
From small business to enterprise level accounts, the company's technology and service offerings are unparalleled, making the franchise opportunity even more valuable. BlueGrace currently holds a complete listing of nationally established accolades, which extend exponential value to new franchisees. Franchise opportunities with BlueGrace Logistics are perfect for entrepreneurs looking for a supportive platform as well as those already engrained in the industry. The brand provides a strong standard franchise model with levels of customization based on experience, industry knowledge and preferred service offerings.
Explained on the company's franchising website, BlueGrace details its three-tiered support model that allows franchise prospects to customize their desired level of franchisee support. Their initial royalty varies depending on the required support. In addition, franchise partners can change their support levels as their needs change throughout their franchise agreement.
"Our model recognizes that everyone has specific needs for a successful partnership and business. The level and depth at which we take the time to consult and educate each franchisee and prospect sets us apart from any other franchise model," says KJ McMasters, Vice President of Franchise Development.
BlueGrace has franchise opportunities available in 48 states (excluding Alaska and Hawaii), and is currently focusing expansion efforts in the following markets: Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Charlotte, Kansas City, Memphis, San Francisco, Cincinnati, Houston, Los Angeles and Albuquerque.
