“The best thing about being an Express Franchise Owner is being part of a team and a brand that is recognized nationwide. There is a mission and vision behind it, and you know you’re part of that.” – Aracely Melendez, Express Franchise Owner

Prior to owning a top staffing franchise, Aracely Melendez worked in the corporate world in the education sector. She got laid off and was going to visit the Express near her home in El Paso, Texas. Before she did so, a friend who had experience in franchising pointed out that Melendez’s situation could actually be an opportunity for a positive career change.

In 2020, she took the plunge and officially signed her Franchise Agreement. Learn why Melendez and other Franchise Owners chose Express here.
