Adapt & Thrive With A Recession-Resilient Express Franchise Opportunity

What makes Express such a solid, recession-resilient franchise opportunity? It’s simple. Even in tough market conditions, Express staffing franchises continue to generate revenue because of ongoing demand. Our corporate support, proven business model and deep knowledge of the industry make us one of the best franchises to buy no matter what’s happening with the economy.

Our ability to adapt to changing conditions, a diverse client base (including grocery, healthcare, industrial businesses) and our proven business model make us uniquely poised to ride out socio-economic ups and downs. Despite recent upheavals across all business sectors, Express Franchise Owners are still going strong, helping job seekers find jobs, companies find employees, and communities find some measure of stability in uncertain times.

We Prioritize & Pivot To Meet Demand.

In rollercoaster markets, companies can play it safe by hiring temps to keep costs down. They may need to increase workers in distribution centers while reducing administrative positions, or shift from traditional in-person work to telecommuting. Recently laid-off employees may be looking for short-term work or looking for new opportunities in a more recession-resilient sector. That’s where our Franchise Owners come in. Owning an Express franchise is a rewarding career opportunity because you provide jobs for your community and truly change lives.

“We have an electronic distribution company that has been a great client for years, however, they used another service for their warehouse work,” said Jan Riggins, general manager for two Express franchise locations in Fort Worth, Texas. “When that service began struggling to fill open job orders we stepped in, supplying employees immediately.”1 Local governments may also be experiencing a surge in need in key infrastructure areas. Whatever the challenge, Express stands ready to provide solutions that help business keep moving forward. Our business is poised to provide the support for whatever the employment need may be.

Not only do we adapt staffing solutions to meet changing market needs, we’ve also modified our franchise sales process to ensure potential owners stay safe. We’ve implemented a Virtual Discovery Day so candidates can meet the executive team from the comfort of their homes as they work with our franchise development team. This allows us to build our infrastructure through franchising in order to support local communities. Additionally, we remain committed to keeping our Franchise Owners, their staff, and everyone in the Express family safe and well.

Here to Help. Here to Stay.

The average office places 600 job seekers annually, making us a valuable part of communities large and small.
