FORT COLLINS - CMIT Solutions hopes to open a franchise in Fort Collins this year, the company said Friday.
Franchises typically employ about eight people, CMIT Solutions said. The Austin, Texas, company offers information technology services to small- and medium-sized companies.

The franchise company also wants to expand in Colorado Springs and Grand Junction. CMIT Solutions operates nine franchises along the Front Range.

CMIT's plans follow growth of 20 percent more than the company projected for 2012, the company said. Revenues from October 2011 through September 2012 spiked an average 32 percent at CMIT Solutions offices open for more than two years.
