Beyond Burgers: Exploring the Express Employment Professionals franchise opportunity

If you’re interested in starting a business, why not consider franchising?  Buying a franchise is a good path to business ownership because you get to be your own boss while benefitting from a partnership with a larger corporation to help with marketing, name recognition, and support and training. 

If the word “franchise” immediately brings flipping burgers to mind, don’t worry. You don’t need to invest in fast food to become a franchisee — there’s a franchise opportunity to match any interest and industry, from health care to staffing and everything in between. 

Express Employment Professionals is a staffing franchise business with over 860 locations around the world. With strong growth, reliable support and high rankings, it’s a franchise opportunity worth considering.

What exactly is franchising? 

The International Franchise Association defines a franchisee as someone who pays a royalty and often an initial fee for the right to do business under the franchisor’s name and system. The process of contracting with a business system and distributing the brand is what most people know as franchising.

I’ve never heard of a staffing franchise. What is that?

A staffing franchise is also known as an employment franchise. This type of business works with people to help them find jobs that match their skill set. Positions can be temporary, part time or full time. A staffing franchise also works with local companies to help them fill open positions. Matching people and companies has benefits for both sides: it saves the employer time and money by having the right person in the job, and it helps the job seeker find a position that they love and want to stay in.

Express is the #1 global staffing franchise. They are known for improving people’s lives in the communities they serve by providing meaningful work and helping local businesses find employees. They’ve also built an incredible reputation for providing amazing Franchise Owner support.

How does Express compare to other franchise opportunities?

Speaking candidly, there really is no comparison when you start looking closely at the Express opportunity. Express is more than just a top staffing franchise — it’s a top franchise overall. Express has over 40 years of industry experience that they put to work for their Franchise Owners every day. They consistently win industry awards for support, innovation, Franchise Owner satisfaction and more.

From a financial standpoint, Express is one of the more profitable franchise opportunities, with $6.4M* in average annual sales in a $212.8B industry. ** On a more personal level, traditional business hours allow for a better work-life balance, giving Express Franchise Owners more time for the people and things they love.

What do Express Franchise Owners have to say?

Express Owners can’t say enough about the support and training they receive. “Express is different from other agencies because we are locally owned and operated yet have the backing of a large and healthy international headquarters,” says second-generation Franchise Owner Alyssa Chumbley. Franchisee John Culpepper agrees, “Following the Express model taught me how to properly run the day-to-day operations and has provided me the resources to train my people.”

Express also recognizes Franchise Owners for the important role they play in the company and in their communities. Lance and Julie Turner were recently named Franchisees of the Year, thanks to their mission to invest in other Express Franchise Owners through volunteer projects and initiatives that help all franchisees. “We have been part of the Express franchise system since 1995,” says Julie, “and will forever be grateful to be part of this company and the opportunity it has provided us, professionally and personally.”

The average tenure of an Express Franchise Owner is 12 years, showing that once they choose to invest in Express, most people choose to stay.
