As unemployment numbers continue to drop after historic highs earlier in the year, the latest data from Express Employment Professionals shows open positions in North America have returned to pre-pandemic levels.

The latest data reveals more than 24,000 jobs are ready to be filled through the international staffing company’s 833 franchise offices. Offices with the most opportunities include Champaign, Illinois (370), Grand Rapids, Michigan (291), Cookeville, Tennessee (229), Kankakee, Illinois (213) and Tacoma, Washington (207).

Since March, many Express Franchise Owners were quick to adjust their business needs to better support their clients looking to fill their staffing needs. Franchise Owners like Janis Petrini began hosting virtual and curbside job fairs, which were well received by the community.

“Express is proud to have supplied essential businesses with workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to help companies get back on their feet during reopening,” Express CEO Bill Stoller said. “As HR experts, our experienced recruiters help save time and money during the hiring process so owners can focus on their business’ success.”

Interest in owning an Express franchise has also piqued this year with many prospective Franchise Owners taking steps to realize their life-long dreams of business ownership. Demand for staffing is high around the country, and Express has plenty of available markets for new Franchise Owners to capitalize on.

“The staffing industry is the number one most researched franchise to own right now because of the recession-resilient nature of the business model,” said Vinny Provenzano, Express Vice President of Franchising. “Right now, it’s a rewarding investment in rebuilding communities to bring hope through employment.”

When it comes to supporting Franchise Owners with unparalleled guidance and ongoing education opportunities, no staffing franchise can match Express. The Express HQ Team gives Franchise Owners and their staff a variety of resources to help them lead impactful businesses, ranging from monthly in-person meetings, leadership conferences and an online Help Desk. We were honored to be recognized by Franchise Business Review as a top franchise based on our Franchise Owner satisfaction ratings. Nothing makes us prouder than helping our Franchise Owners make differences in their communities and having the ability to live out their entrepreneurial dreams with a rewarding franchise.
