Blink recently launched a franchising system to complement its fast growing company-owned business model and has secured franchise development agreements in Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Virginia and upstate NY.

Blink is an exciting and dynamic business that is still in the start-up mode. We are a passionate team with a great entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to roll up our sleeves to get the work done.
