Bookkeeping Express “Bucks” the Trend in 2011

While the Franchise Industry grew by 3%, Bookkeeping Express hits 30% Franchise growth for the second year in a row!

Over the past two years many franchisors have been humbled by system decreases.  PricewaterhouseCoopers reported that after growing by more than 40 percent between 2001 and 2008, the number of franchise units dropped by nearly 4 percent between 2008 and 2009.  And then they barely grew at all in 2010.

BookKeeping Express, a national company focused on providing professional bookkeeping practices to small businesses, is bucking this trend.  They continue to experience growth despite the recessive market and the obvious challenges that exist.  What’s their secret?

  • Low investment– where the average franchise startup investment may have been $250,000 three years ago, many rapid growth franchises today have total investments of $125,000.  Bookkeeping Express start up is less than $75,000.
  • Rapid Breakeven – many of the fastest growing franchises boast a breakeven point within the first 18 months of operation
  • High Margins – according to CPA Trendlines, accounting and bookkeeping firms are posting some of the strongest profit margins in this economy.
  • Strong demand for service offering – bookkeeping is a must-do service offering that does not ebb and flow with the economy.
