On a cool December day in 2005, two friends were relaxing during a round of golf and they felt a different chill in the air. It was the sensation that something remarkable was about to happen (and it wasn’t a birdie). Will Jones contemplated aloud what he would do since the software company where he proved himself faithful for nine years was being bought out. Sean Thornton heard a door that he had closed years earlier groan on its hinges, opening once more. Little did they know that their private aspirations were about to intersect.
Both found that they craved the challenge of opening a personal business. Their conversation escalated, as Sean — who worked for two different staffing companies over six years — shared the business model that would make their dreams reality. Each felt that he possessed the qualities that a great staffing business is founded upon: communication, honesty, sales ability, commitment, and — most importantly — the desire to see one another, clients, and candidates succeed.
The result of their determination became Kudzu Staffing, which opened its doors on May 1, 2006. Kudzu is conveniently located just off of I-85 in Powdersville, South Carolina. It is our mission to “grow” the lives of our employees and clients by providing exceptional service, honesty, and integrity in everything we do.
Our name is true to this mission—we’re fast-growing, impossible to stop, and we cover everything!
