BookKeeping Express offers the only national franchise model for outsourced bookkeeping, providing a proven, turn-key business opportunity perfectly suited for business professionals and entrepreneurs.
The company was founded in 1984 in Southern California and began licensing the concept in 1987. Under the licensed name, BookKeeping Express provided software and training and grew to more than 140 licensees.
In 2007, BookKeeping Express was acquired by Greg Jones (CEO), Bob Stocker (COO/President), and Merritt Green (Chairman). BookKeeping Express opened its first corporate location in McLean, Virginia in the 1st quarter of 2008; and soon after three other locations in Leesburg and Reston, VA and Rockville, MD. BookKeeping Express began franchising in the 3rd quarter of 2008. Year-to-date in 2010, BookKeeping Express has sold over 129 franchise territories throughout the U.S, and is moving toward nationwide expansion and brand recognition.
Operating successfully as a franchisor requires accurate financial reports from every franchisee. Unfortunately, it can be a challenge to get all the franchisees to report consistent and complete information and deliver it on time each month. But with BookKeeping Express handling the books for your franchisees, it’s an entirely different situation where everyone wins.
Franchisors get the right reports from each franchisee, turned in right on time so the profit picture is always complete, clear and current. This is accomplished with our partner Qvinci, which allows a franchisor to get standardized reporting across franchisees.
Franchisees get the back-office bookkeeping support they need to run their franchise as smoothly and profitably as possible, using all of BookKeeping Express’ complete financial transaction processing services.
Franchisees will leverage our 25 years of bookkeeping industry experience to build their own successful business, and they will have the support they need to succeed. BookKeeping Express offers lead assistance, quality assurance, a specially designed ongoing franchise development program and other strong support programs to help expand a franchisee’s business. Franchisees can count on solid company support for operations, marketing, sales, communications, vendor relationships, training, technology and more.
BookKeeping Express believes in working smarter and faster to accurately fulfill our clients’ needs. We accomplish this by providing our franchisees with cutting-edge technology and franchise support systems. Most solo bookkeepers and CPA firms do not utilize technology to enhance their services geared towards the small business owner, and therefore cannot provide real-time data to help the business owner understand their financial situation. BookKeeping Express has the goal of completing as much work online as possible, taking little time from the small business owner.
BookKeeping Express utilizes the most up-to-date software on the market, which includes online access to their accounts by franchisees and clients. This allows our corporate locations and franchisees to provide superior services to their clients. BookKeeping Express is setting the standard in new technology adoption in bookkeeping, providing a variety of software and services to allow ease of use for both clients and franchisees:
