Fastest Labs Expands into Tennessee with Newly Opened Cookeville Location

- DNA and Drug Testing Franchise Continues to Grow as it Aims to Add 12 Locations to the State by 2022 -

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Fastest Labs, a Drug, Alcohol and DNA Testing franchise, has added a new location in Cookeville, Tennessee to its growing list of facilities across America. This new location marks the first Fastest Labs in the state, having opened in April 2021, and is located at 545 E. Spring St. The growing franchise brand aims to develop an additional 12 locations across Tennessee, through strategic franchise partnerships, in territories including Chattanooga, Knoxville and Murfreesboro.

The newest franchisee to be welcomed to the Fastest Labs family, Amanda Howard, is an accomplished business owner and attorney. Howard's experience working with clients to get drug, alcohol and DNA testing is what prompted her to get involved with the drug testing franchise. Howard first realized the need for a solution within her community when she learned her clients would have to drive over two hours just to get tested at the nearest lab, and then wait several weeks to get results. On top of owning her own law practice, Howard is a single mom to two daughters and was looking for a franchise opportunity that would provide a solution to her community while being easy to manage as a working mother.

"What drew me to the Fastest Labs franchise opportunity was how easy they have made the process to open and run the business," said Howard. "Working with the Cookeville community, I saw a huge need for safe, quick and easy testing. Fastest Labs provided all of those options and their team worked with me every step of the way to make sure we are successful. They've created a system for franchisees to be supported by assisting us in finding a location, training and hiring a staff and more. They made opening my first location so easy and I'm definitely considering opening another facility in the future."

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 twelve in development across 22 states. In the last year, the brand signed 19 franchise agreements, the most it's seen since it began franchising in 2010. Fastest Labs is on track to have a historic, record-breaking year as it is on track to continue hitting major milestones and breaking into new states across the country.

"We're excited to welcome Amanda to the Fastest Labs family, and her immense business knowledge is a huge asset to our team," said Dave Claflin, the CEO and Founder of Fastest Labs. "As we continue to grow our franchise, we are always looking for hard working and service-focused individuals, and Amanda exemplifies that. Her passion to serve the community and driven work ethic is truly inspiring, and we're eager to see all of her future success."
