How A Top Staffing Franchise Ranks #1 For 11 Years In A Row

Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Ranked #1 in Category 2021

At Express Employment Professionals, we know how to get the job done well. That’s why we’re thrilled to be recognized as the top staffing franchise by Entrepreneur magazine in its annual Franchise 500 list, ranking #1 in category, 11 years running.

We Play To Win

Competition is fierce to score a spot on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking. Rigorous judging criteria evaluates franchise performance in key areas that include unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power. Each franchise receives a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the best scores are the Franchise 500.

Outstanding In A Year Like No Other

Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur editor-in-chief, praised the can-do attitude of the industry as franchises navigated shifting consumer trends during a global pandemic. “2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year of unusual opportunity,” he said, noting that the ability to pivot was key. “Franchises were able to be nimble and innovative, serving the needs of franchisees and customers in ways that will resonate for many years to come. We believe that, when we eventually look back on this time, we’ll see it as a moment when many brands defined themselves for the future.”

Believe In The Franchise With A Proven Track Record.

It’s not just our ranking as top franchise to own by industry leaders that makes our staffing franchise so rewarding to own. Strong corporate support for our Franchise Owners, a commitment to innovation and an ongoing demand to connect business with people makes Express a game-changing player in the staffing industry. We bring to the table:

  • $6M+ in average annual sales*
  • Low entry costs: You need minimal staff and there’s no overhead or inventory.
  • Strong 2020 Performance: 61 signed franchise agreements to bring 27 new offices to key markets nationwide.

A Winner Knows How To Pivot

The global staffing market was a roller coaster in 2020 with booming demand in some sectors and cratering numbers in others; but that didn’t stop our Franchise Owners from helping employers and employees fill gaps, find opportunities and adapt to changing business needs brought on by COVID-19. Their confidence in our brand is one of the drivers that makes us a top franchise to own, and our hat is off to them! Franchise Owner Neil McMillan credits the Express model as a reason business keeps thriving in uncertain economies.

“We’ve grown every single year for 13 years. This is a business as long as you go out and do the sales, as long as you go out and look for your clients, you can continue to grow no matter what the conditions of the market are,” said Neil.

Be The Boss Of A Bright Future

Bill Stoller, CEO of Express Employment Professionals, knows how hard Franchise Owners have worked to keep us one of the best staffing franchises to own year after year. “Despite the challenges and complexities of 2020, our Franchise Owners rose to the occasion and helped fill thousands of jobs last year,” said Stoller.  He continued, “We feel grateful to be able to make an impact on people’s lives, and we’re excited to grow this impact in the years to come.”
