Stay Alfred confirmed the layoffs Thursday, stating it frequently assesses areas to function more efficiently amid its growth across 33 markets.
“As part of that effort, last week, we made the difficult decision to let go of a small number of our employees – about 30 on a national basis. We’re grateful for each and every person’s contribution and dedication thus far to Stay Alfred’s mission. With our position as a pioneer in the alternative accommodations space, we remain committed to financial responsibility and carefully planned growth.”
— Jordan Allen, Stay Alfred CEO
The company declined to comment on the job positions eliminated and how many employees are affected at its Spokane Valley headquarters. The company employed roughly 300 before the jobs cuts.
Allen, a Spokane native and former Army Ranger, founded Stay Alfred in 2011. The company became known for popularizing the concept of upscale travel apartment rentals in walkable downtown locations.
The company, which launched in a 300-square-foot office in downtown Spokane with three employees, expanded to a 45,000-square-foot campus in Spokane Valley last year with more than 300 employees.
