We’re thrilled to announce our newest accolade. Express Employment professionals has ranked in Entrepreneur’s 2023 Hall of Fame for the 35th year in a row, along with ranking #1 in category on the Top 500 for the 13th year in a row. Despite the challenges franchises experienced during the pandemic, Express continues its dominance as a top franchise opportunity focused on growth, a reflection of not only the strength of our market-ready process ,but also how recession-resilient the $212.8B* staffing industry is.

Since 1979, Entrepreneur has published its annual list of the Top 500 franchises in the world. The Top 500 ranking, one of the industry’s most respected franchise information indicators, considers costs and fees, size and growth, support, financial strength and stability.

How our values boost our growth as a top staffing franchise

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” says Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”

What makes Express so recession-resilient?

With so many top staffing franchise options to choose from, Franchise Owners look for a leader that can help them hit the ground running. They want strong corporate support and a tried-and-true business model that lets them focus on what they do best: matching job seekers with the right job opportunities and helping businesses in their communities find employees.

Potential Franchise Owners don’t need a background in staffing to succeed—we’ve built our process around support that makes us one of the best franchises to own.  And from now through March 15th, 2024, we are waiving the franchise fee when Franchise Owners sign their agreement with us. It’s just one more example of our commitment to helping our Franchise Owners succeed.

“We  just trusted the name and the system,  that’s it,” said Franchise Owners Steve Wong and Sandy Yeung. “we’ve never recruited before—I’m a newbie, and I just follow the system.”

From marketing and back office administrative support, our model minimizes hassles so you can optimize ROI. Steve praises our process as standing head and shoulders above the competition.

One thing that Express does extremely well is supporting its franchisees. I’ve seen in countless careers where I was before, we were just treated as a number…as an [Express] franchisee, I’m not treated as a number. We have the support that we need, and if Express is saying that they do something, they will do it. There are no false promises.”
