Doherty Moves Crookston Office to New, Central Location


A family-owned employment agency since 1980, Doherty’s new office location in Crookston is open for business.

“One reason for the move is to accommodate for our growth,” says Business Development Representative Jacob Johnson. “We’re taking on more clients, connecting more people with jobs, and we need our space to grow with us.”

“We’re excited to be a part of the overall growth of Crookston, as well. There’s a kind of downtown revival right now, and we want to be more accessible to our candidates and clients in the center of the city.”

Formerly located in northern Crookston’s Valley Technology Park, the employment office is now at 402 North Broadway. The new office is already sparking attention for the eye-catching signage recently installed covering the large front windows. Doherty has 25 locations in the Midwest, and the nearest office to Crookston is in Grand Forks. Between the two offices, Doherty serves a large population of job seekers and clients in the northwestern Minnesota, north eastern North Dakota region.

“Doherty has brought companies and jobseekers together in northern Minnesota for many years,” Johnson says. “What’s unique about Doherty is that we have over 35 years of experience in the employment industry and we have been recognized as a Star Tribune Top Workplace since 2014.” He concludes, “We aim to maintain that status and are looking forward to further growing our presence in the Crookston community with the new office.”
