Best Franchise to Own: Why Express Employment Professionals is Best-in-Class

Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Best of the Best 2021

For the eighth year in a row, Express Employment Professionals made Entrepreneur’s Best of the Best Franchises to Own list. The “Best of the Best” title is given to franchises that not only rank in the increasingly competitive Franchise 500 but are also considered the top franchise of their respective industry categories. As the top staffing franchise, Express is a great investment for those looking to become their own boss with a thriving brand and industry.

So, what makes an Express franchise opportunity one of the best options out there for 2021? First and foremost, it starts with a proven franchise model that allowed for success in a chaotic year.

Finding Success During a Pandemic

Despite the trials of 2020, Express Franchise Owners were able to stay open and navigate the pandemic while delivering excellent results for their clients. Year in and year out, Franchise Owners like Neil McMillan continue to grow their business.

“We’ve grown every single year for 13 years,” says Neil. “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.”

Continuous growth and the ability to withstand hardships are a couple of the key reasons why Express is one of the best franchises to own.

Unmatched Expertise

In addition to being recession-resilient, Express has made a name for itself thanks to its long history of operating within the staffing industry. With almost 40 years of staffing and franchise industry expertise and over 830 locations open, Express has the experience needed to help Franchise Owners get the most out of their locations.

Partnering with a franchise that knows its way around the industry is a key component of giving you the best chance at finding success.

A Healthy AUV & Top-Tier Support

Another key performance indicator of franchise success is the Average Unit Volume, or AUV for short. This is an earnings claim that is included in the Franchise Disclosure Document that denotes the average gross sales per franchise location. Express is proud to have an incredible AUV of $5.4M, which is a clear indicator that an Express franchise opportunity is one of the best for your ROI.

One way we assist Franchise Owners with improving their ROI is through our ongoing support. This includes a Franchisee Help Desk, monthly regional meetings with owners to discuss best practices, payroll funding, and back-office support.

At Express, we not only want to see our Franchise Owners enjoy working with Express—we also want to assist them in getting the ROI they are seeking. Our continuous and loyal support to our Franchise Owners is one of the reasons why owners like Garry Norris have continued to thrive with Express.

“We follow the process of Express,” says Garry. “We do what they taught us. And I think that is why we are so successful.”

With Express, you’ll have the freedom to be your own boss, but with the luxury of having an experienced and friendly support team ready to assist you and your new business.
