If you’re looking for the best franchise opportunity for someone with a background in sales or client services, add staffing agency franchise to the top of your list.  

Not only can you bypass complex inventory and equipment, but a staffing agency franchise offers you low-investment access to a $212.8B industry. A staffing agency operates between regular business hours, giving you better work/life balance. If that’s not enough, you’ll have an immediate and personal impact on your community. But before unpacking these benefits, here’s a quick refresh on what a staffing agency franchise does.  

What is a staffing agency franchise?

A staffing agency franchise matches people with jobs and companies with people. They recruit for employers and help job seekers find the right positions.

However, not every staffing agency franchise is the same. Some focus only on certain types of employment, such as temp jobs, while others offer a wider range of solutions. Express Employment Professionals — the #1 staffing agency franchise in North America — offers full-time, part-time and temporary jobs, including payroll and HR assistance. They help place people in professional, office services, skilled trades and light industrial work.

What makes a staffing agency franchise better than other types of franchises?

There are thousands of franchise opportunities in the U.S. Why choose a staffing agency franchise?

  • The staffing industry is recession resilient. Every year, new high school and college graduates are added to the workforce. As other industries flux, job turnover increases, only adding to the challenges that a remote work environment has imposed for professional workers.

    Even in slower hiring markets, Express benefits from its expertise in a wide range of industries. For example, if office jobs saw a temporary decline, there still may be high demand in the skilled trades. Having a diverse client base helps position this staffing agency franchise as more agile in the market.

    Additional things to consider are low start-up and operation costs. Without an inventory or expensive equipment, this is truly a low-cost franchise. You’ll have less to recoup and maintain compared to many other franchise options. This is another reason that Express is also one of the most profitable franchises with an impressive $6.4M in average annual sales.**

  • Operation hours are family friendly. Staffing agency franchises operate within regular business hours, giving you a reliable work-life balance. Unlike other franchise concepts that may be open 12 to 24 hours a day, Express offices typically operate between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. If you’re looking for the independence of owning your business without a commitment that sacrifices quality of life, a staffing agency franchise is an excellent choice.

  • You can have a real impact on your community. The average Express franchise places 600 job seekers per year. That’s 600 people who can now support themselves and their families. 600 people who can put their skills to work and develop their careers. Plus, you’re helping companies find the talent they need to operate and reduce costly employee turnover. Investing in a staffing agency franchise is a great way to mix smart business with supporting your community.
