A new I.T. Staffing franchise is emerging from Knoxville, TN. According to the Knoxville News Sentinel:
“Staff I.T., an information technology recruiting and staffing firm with headquarters in Oak Ridge, is announcing today a major shift in operations that includes a name change and expansion through franchising.
“The 10-year-old company, which now will be called RecruitWise, is looking to franchise into 27 cities within a 450-mile radius of Knoxville over the next decade.
“Founder and President Glenn Zahn said RecruitWise will target cities that are Knoxville’s size or larger.
“Zahn said there is a growing need for information technology recruitment and staffing services as companies look to fill more tech-based positions.
He said as the company evaluated expansion options, the decision to franchise emerged as the best fit. He also said the decision to change names was made because Staff I.T. does not qualify for a trademark but RecruitWise does and the firm was needing to trademark its identity.”
