How a Franchise Owner with a Real Estate Background Found Success with the Top Staffing Franchise

At Express, we have Franchise Owners who come from many different backgrounds. While we certainly have many owners who have experience in staffing, that isn’t the case for everyone. Rachel French, who had experience in real estate prior to coming to Express, is just one example of an Express Franchise Owner who has thrived after making the move to the top staffing franchise.

Working in both property management and commercial real estate out of college, Rachel was able to gain a solid foundation in working with a variety of people, understanding processes, and building her communication skills. While she found success in this avenue, she eventually moved to San Francisco to start a sales job. Through a connection at Express, she was brought on to that office as an account manager.

From there, Rachel quickly moved up the ranks, becoming a partner after working with Express for nine years. Since then, she’s bought multiple Express offices.

Recently, Rachel was featured in Franchise Consultant Magazine where she talked about her experience as an owner of one of the best staffing franchises.

On the Impact of Being a Franchise Owner with Express

In addition to our top-tier $5.4M AUV*, many of our Franchise Owners cite the meaningful relationships they get to make as one of the benefits of working with Express.

“It’s been very rewarding,” Rachel says of her time as a partner and Franchise Owner. “It’s like a family business, and I love being part of this type of culture. The relationships I’ve built over time have been a nice fit for what I wanted to do with my life.”

Franchise Owners will get to meet with experienced industry veterans, as well as work with our excellent support team, which is great for those who come in with no staffing experience.

And for people who don’t have experience in the industry but are considering an Express franchise opportunity? Rachel offers this advice: “Don’t be afraid of taking risks. Know who you are and what business you want to have.”

On the Express Franchise Model

One reason for our sustained success and recognition as the #1 staffing franchise is our system, which helps Franchise Owners get their footing early and helps them along their way. From our reliable support whenever you need it to our payroll being 100% funded by corporate so you don’t have to worry about it, we have a proven franchise model.

“Take on the Express business model full force,” says Rachel of the Express model. “It’s your business but the system is the system–and it works. The training and support you get from Express HQ are proven, and you can trust you’re in good hands.”

If you’re someone like Rachel who wants to make the move to a more financially and rewarding career, Express is the perfect low-cost franchise opportunity for you. To see where we’re currently looking to expand, head over to our available territories page!
