DNA and Drug Testing Franchise Accelerates Development; Continues Nationwide Franchise Expansion
February 09, 2021 // Franchising.com // SAN ANTONIO - Fastest Labs, a Drug, Alcohol and DNA Testing franchise, has announced a new signed franchise agreement in Minnesota, which marks the 80th license sold for the brand. The location is currently in site selection, and is slated to open St. Paul in Q1 of 2021 - marking the third location in the state of Minnesota.
Behind this development deal is Jamison Kortas, who brings decades of leadership experience to the Fastest Labs franchise system. Kortas has spent nearly 20 years in regulatory affairs, and has a Master of Arts in education and Bachelor of Arts in chemistry. A local Minnesotan for all his life, Kortas will open his first franchise location in St. Paul with plans to develop additional locations across the state in the upcoming year.
“Everything about the Fastest Labs business model, and the direction the overall industry is headed, made it an easy decision to sign on,” said Kortas. “To be a big part of the franchise’s growth milestone in a pivotal year for the brand is exciting. As the nation begins to bounce back from COVID-19 and the economy starts to recover, our services will prove crucial to those stepping back into the workforce, and I’ll work tirelessly to make sure the community is served as quickly and safely as possible.”
With a determined leadership team, committed group of franchise partners and a heightened demand for services, Fastest Labs has accelerated development efforts, with the goal of reaching 100 locations by year-end. The brand currently sits at 58 locations - with more than six in development - across 20 states. In the last year, the brand signed 19 franchise agreements, the most the brand has seen since it began franchising in 2010, and is on track to continue hitting milestones and breaking into new states across the U.S.
“We’ve seen impressive growth systemwide throughout the pandemic and are ecstatic to have signed our 80th unit, while continuing our development efforts across the U.S.,” said Dave Claflin, the CEO and Founder of Fastest Labs. “Jamison is a great addition to our franchise system and has significant roots in his community setting himself and his business up for success at day one. His expertise in the field will be an asset for his team, and his commitment to grow with the brand makes him invaluable as we aim to serve more communities through expansion efforts.”
