AtWork Group Ranks Among Entrepreneur’s 2019 Top Franchises for Veterans
While Veteran’s Day is officially recognized in November, AtWork Group, a fast-growing national staffing franchise, celebrates the United States’ servicemen and women year-round, as evidenced by their ranking on Entrepreneur’s list of Top Franchises for Veterans. The coveted list encompasses the top 150 franchises offering incentives and other programs to help veterans become franchisees. AtWork Group ranked No. 117.
Hundreds of franchises offer some sort of incentive (i.e. a franchise-fee discount) to veterans joining their system. To develop its ranking, Entrepreneur takes into account each company’s veteran incentive, how veteran franchisees are drawn to and supported by the company and how each franchise scored in the 2019 Franchise 500.
“While AtWork Group is thrilled with this accolade from Entrepreneur, recognition is not the reason we go above and beyond to support veterans,” said Jason Leverant, President and COO of AtWork Group. “AtWork is incredibly grateful for the service these men and women have done for our country, and however we can help them re-enter the workforce and start a business is the least we can offer in return for their bravery.”
AtWork currently operates branches across the United States, as the need for staffing services for both job applicants and companies continues to grow. This growing need, in combination with the strength and capacity of AtWork, is exemplified by the success of the current franchisees. AtWork facilitated 50,000 hires in 2018 and doubled its gross revenue over the past three previous years, from $164 million in 2015 to $360 million at the end of 2018.
This latest ranking is the “icing on the cake” in a string of awards for the franchise this year. AtWork recently placed on the Franchise Times’ Top 200+, Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Largest Staffing Firms, Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 and Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500. Jason Leverant was also recognized by the SIA’s Staffing 100 list, earning him a place in the Staffing 100 Hall of Fame.
