Command Center revenue increases
Command Center, Inc., a Post Falls-based temporary labor company, announced revenue of $5.84 million for the four-week reporting period of November 2010, an increase of 37 percent on revenue of $4.26 million recorded in the year-earlier period.
The company said year-to-date revenue of $62.84 million represents a 32 percent increase on revenue of $47.56 million in the comparable year-earlier period.
According to Command Center's chairman and CEO Glenn Welstad, "We are thrilled by the continuing sales and profit strength going into year-end, a period that is historically slower for the staffing sector."
Welstad noted that Staffing Industry Analysts recognized Command Center as having posted for the third quarter the largest year-over-year revenue increase - 49.4 percent - among the 26 public staffing firms that it tracks.
Command Center, which operated 50 company-owned stores in November 2010 versus 49 branch offices in November 2009, has recently initiated an expansion program involving the strategic addition of branch offices in areas where there is an immediate need for workers in response to client demand.
The company opened a new office in Orlando in November and is preparing to open two or three additional branches in other states.
