by Kay Aloha Villamor in November 2nd, 2022

Qwick, a Phoenix, Arizona-based on-demand staffing platform for hospitality businesses and professionals, closed its $40 million Series B investment. 

The round was led by Tritium Partners, with participation by current investors Album VC, Kickstart, Desert Angels, and Revolution's Rise of the Rest Seed Fund.

With its Series B funding, Qwick will accelerate growth by deepening its reach to hospitality businesses and professionals in existing markets and rapidly broadening its availability in new cities. 

The company will also continue to hire at its Phoenix headquarters and in market-specific locations around the country to support new and existing business partners and professionals.

"Staffing-as-a-Service is the future of work in the hospitality industry. We're excited by Tritium's conviction in Qwick and belief in our mission to end understaffing," said Qwick Co-Founder and CEO Jamie Baxter. "We are proud to have facilitated over 500,000 hospitality shifts to date, and we plan to double that output in a matter of months as we match a growing number of businesses and service industry professionals for shifts in more and more cities around the country. Our projection is to fill over one million hospitality shifts in 2023 alone."

Over the past three years, Qwick has grown immensely, with revenue increasing by 10,032%. The company recently celebrated its recognition on the Inc. 5000 list as the 32nd fastest-growing company in the U.S. Behind its exciting growth has been a special focus on hiring and technology build-out, both of which feed Qwick's market expansion.
