Once Again, Express Earns Top Spot in Category Ranking with Entrepreneur Franchise 500 

Entrepreneur Franchise 500

For the 12th consecutive year, Express Employment Professionals is ranked the number one staffing franchise by Entrepreneur Franchise 500®.

There are several factors the editorial team at Entrepreneur looks at when creating their annual rankings, such as costs and fees, size, growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

Express isn’t just a top staffing franchise; it’s one of the top overall franchise opportunities. This isn’t an easy title to hold, as there are a lot of franchises out there in an ever-expanding industry.

Express’ inclusion in the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list speaks to the strength of the Express business model and our fearless, passionate Franchise Owners who love helping people find work they enjoy. According to Express Employment International CEO Bill Stoller, “Being chosen as the preferred franchise concept for the staffing/recruiting industry is a great honor to everyone in the Express network who works tirelessly to connect quality job seekers with reputable companies,” he said. “Our goal has always been to support entrepreneurs who are primed to create not only a successful business venture but one that is invested in the local communities they serve and built to last for years to come.”

In Good Company

As one of the best franchises to own in a growing industry, Express Franchise Owners agree that not only is owning an Express fun and meaningful, but it also offers year-over-year financial growth. According to Franchise Owner Neil McMillian, “We’ve grown every single year for 13 years. This is a business where, 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.”

There’s More to Celebrate

As the #1 global staffing franchise and one of the most profitable franchises you can own, Express is the undisputed leader when it comes to staffing franchises. In addition, we are the industry leader, with a $6.4M AUV.* And for a limited time, candidates in certain markets get their franchise fee waived — a savings of $40K. There’s never been a better time to become an Express Franchise Owner!

A Career That Supports the Community

When you invest in an Express franchise, you fill an important need — helping local businesses find qualified employees, and your neighbors find work that’s as satisfying as it is important. “The best thing about being an Express franchisee is helping people,” said Tracy Thompson, Franchise Owner. “It gave me the work/life balance I sought and the benefits of business ownership, but it’s also really helpful to me to be able to help people — and helping them find their next job opportunity and hopefully change their life.”  

You might be interested to know that a whopping 95% of our Franchise Owners had no background in staffing before joining Express. No matter your experience level, you’ll be backed by all the support you need to thrive, and a proven business model with a long history of success. Community minded? A natural leader? Driven? You’ve got what it takes to invest in a full-time business that makes a difference.
