Bookkeeping Express, a franchisor focused on providing outsourced bookkeeping services to small businesses, plans to expand nationally with 400 new territories.

CEO Greg S. Jones initially intends to target the mid-Atlantic region before expanding the company nationwide. Bookkeeping Express recently signed a franchise agreement to open seven locations in Washington, D.C. Bookkeeping Express uses an alternative pricing model based on clients' needs, as opposed to a fixed hourly billing approach.

The company offers services to small businesses such as setting up charts of accounts and general ledgers, doing monthly data entry, processing and managing accounts payable and accounts receivable, and producing monthly reports and tax reports. As part of the Bookkeeping Express franchise model, all locations will offer the BKE Connect system, which allows businesses access to all bookkeeping files remotely through an outside server, as well as a dashboard that sums up the business's operations for analysis.

Jones also operates a restaurant franchise business in Florida and was previously in the telecommunications business. He is offering two options for franchisees: master or area development territories that can be operated out of home-based or commercial space locations. Per territory start-up fees cost under $50,000, according to the company. For more information, visit www.bookkeepingexpress.us.
