COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- February 20, 2013

Command Center, Inc. (OTCQB: CCNI)
(http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/CCNI/quote), a national provider of on-demand
and temporary staffing solutions, today reported that founder and Chief
Executive Officer, Glenn Welstad, has announced his resignation as president
and CEO in order to pursue other interests. Mr. Welstad also resigned as a
member of the board of directors.

Although the resignation is effective immediately, Glenn Welstad’s departure
has been planned for some time. As part of this process, the board of
directors has been actively engaged in identifying and screening candidates
and is now in the final stages of selecting a new CEO.

Glenn Welstad, 69, founded the company in 2003 and took the company public in
2005. He navigated the company through some of the most economically
challenging times for the staffing industry. Command Center makes this
announcement with the company solidly positioned and competitive, having a
committed staff and dedicated workforce in place.

The company noted that under Glenn Welstad’s leadership, 2012 was a very
strong year with top line growth of 20.2%, combined with trailing twelve
months of positive earnings through the last earnings report. He leaves the
company financially, operationally and technologically positioned to execute
on its growth strategy, while continuing to focus on bottom line
profitability.

Mr. Welstad has a rich business history that includes more than 15 years in
the restaurant business and, most notably, as the founder of Labor Ready (now
TrueBlue, Inc.) in 1989. Glenn, along with two other Command Center
executives, who will remain with the company, were among the forward-thinking
professionals responsible for guiding and managing the phenomenal growth of
Labor Ready into a billion-dollar company, making it the fourth-best
performing stock among all U.S. stocks during the 90's decade. Mr. Welstad
left TrueBlue in 2000 after growing TrueBlue’s international footprint to over
800 locations.

Board member Jeff Wilson praised Mr. Welstad, saying, “Glenn is a visionary
business leader whose commitment to providing quality staff members to clients
in real time launched an entire industry. His unwavering focus on quality is a
legacy that will be carried on by Command Center. His presence will be missed
at Command and we wish him well.”
