GOOSE CREEK, SC / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2022 / HireQuest, Inc. (NASDAQ:HQI), a national franchisor of on-demand, temporary, and commercial staffing services, today announced that Happy Faces Personnel Group has joined forces with its Snelling franchise in Atlanta, Georgia. President and Owner of Happy Faces Personnel, Michael Hairston, will continue to lead the business and is the majority owner of the newly combined franchise. Happy Faces will be converted to Snelling branding and become part of HireQuest's franchise model effective immediately. The company generated over $14 million in sales in 2021.
"We are excited to welcome Michael Hairston and his team to the HireQuest Family," commented HireQuest's President and Chief Executive Officer, Rick Hermanns. "Atlanta is a booming metropolitan area, and this combination strengthens Snelling's local market offerings to now include municipal and state government clerical contracts, as well as additional commercial accounts. Michael brings 25 years of experience and relationships in the city and we're confident that his expertise in combination with Snelling's complementary capabilities and operational infrastructure will result in a robust franchise enterprise."
Michael Hairston stated, "This combination will help fuel our organization's next stage of growth. As a Snelling franchisee we will be able to serve new types of clients as well as benefit from the national footprint, back-office software, support services and insurance coverage while remaining an independent provider of staffing services. We have a long and successful history serving our customers and the Atlanta community, and I look forward to this transition and our continued evolution as a Snelling franchisee."
