entrepreneur hall of fame

Express has earned Entrepreneur magazine’s most distinguished award:  induction into the Franchise 500 Hall of Fame. This honor is reserved for the most elite franchise brands that have ranked in the Franchise 500 for a minimum of 25 consecutive years. Express has ranked for 35 consecutive years, validating its long-term success as a franchise brand. In addition to this longstanding Franchise 500 ranking, Express has held the #1 staffing franchise spot on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 for 12 consecutive years in a row.

What makes Express an elite franchise brand?

The Entrepreneur Franchise 500 ranks franchises based on factors like brand strength, support, growth, size, and financial strength and stability. Express consistently excels in these areas, thanks to a strong business model and over 35 years of industry experience. The Entrepreneur Hall of Fame distinction is a clear sign to both potential owners and the industry that Express is a top franchise opportunity.

But there’s more to being an elite brand than just financial success and security. The company vision is to help as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people. Every Express location plays an important role in strengthening the community it calls home by matching qualified employees with companies that have open positions. The average Express office places 600 job seekers a year. This sets the Express franchise opportunity apart because it gives Franchise Owners the chance to build a business that’s more than just professionally rewarding — it also makes a real difference in the lives of other people.

What do Express Franchise Owners have to say?

All of the factors that earned Express a spot in the Entrepreneur Hall of Fame also make a big difference when it comes to the ownership experience. Express enjoys a high rate of Franchise Owner satisfaction. This is driven by the incredible support and training programs available to Franchise Owners, as well as the personal satisfaction that they feel from helping other people in their community find meaningful work.

When it comes to support, Express is there throughout the entire ownership journey, providing extensive training and day-to-day support. That can be anything from pre-opening site selection assistance to payroll funding once the doors are open. “The training and support are incredible and really guide us on our path to becoming successful Franchise Owners,” says John Culpepper, the 2022 Express Franchise Owner of the Year.

The opportunity to serve others is a benefit that may not immediately come to mind when someone thinks of a staffing franchise, but it makes a big impact on Express Franchise Owners and the people they match with jobs. “I have a big passion for helping people, which really brings out the soft side in me, and I truly enjoy the purpose of what we do at Express Employment Professionals,” says Express Franchise Owner Nancy Reed. “Helping someone in need find a job is a really rewarding career.”
