According to a May 2021 Forbes article, the U.S. economy is showing strong signs of recovery since the pandemic first hit in early 2020. Experts predict that the economy will expand around 7% this year, the fastest calendar-year growth since 1984.
With the economy looking to get back on track, it should come as no surprise that many employees are planning on switching jobs in the near future. A recent survey conducted by Prudential Financial found that 1 in 4 workers are preparing to look for opportunities with a new employer once the pandemic threat has subsided.
But switching jobs isn’t the only way to hit the refresh button and bring new excitement to your career. Now is also the perfect time to invest in yourself and finally pursue your entrepreneurial dreams through a franchise opportunity.
So, what makes franchising so appealing, especially when compared to simply switching jobs? And why is Express one of the best franchises to own? Let’s find out!
3 Reasons to Franchise in 2021
Franchising Allows You to Control Your Destiny
If you’re tired of working for someone else and are ready to be your own boss, then you should definitely consider franchising. As a Franchise Owner, you can set your own hours and focus on doing what’s best for you and your new business.
At Express Employment Professionals, our Franchise Owners love to finally have the independence they’ve been longing for when it comes to their work. And while you will be your own boss when you franchise with us, we offer comprehensive, robust Corporate support to help give you the best chance at succeeding. This is just one of the reasons why Express is the top staffing franchise and one of the best franchises to own.
Enjoy Financial and Emotional Rewards
There are many different franchise opportunities available today within various industries. Therefore, you shouldn’t have much trouble finding a franchise that you’re passionate about. Whether you are a foodie and want to own your own restaurant or interested in helping other people find work they love with a staffing franchise like Express, there is something out there for everyone.
In addition, there are also plenty of financial benefits to owning a franchise. At Express, our Franchise Owners enjoy an impressive AUV of $5.4M*. Even during the pandemic, our Franchise Owners were able to find success! But profits are far from the only thing that motivates them.
“The greatest impact that owning an Express office has had on our lives is first and foremost freedom,” say Franchise Owners Frank and Amanda Valencia. “We have three little girls who need us. (Owning an Express) allows us to be there during important moments. Aside from that, the greatest impact it has had has been on our team. Finding and growing future leaders has been hugely powerful.”
Pass Your Franchise on to Your Family
Franchises are also a great way to start a family business without the struggles of building a business from scratch. And when you partner with a franchise like Express, your family members you pass your business on to will benefit from our corporate support. We’ll be there to make sure the transition goes smoothly!
“After working with my parents in our Express franchises for more than a decade, we made the decision that I would purchase the business. The Express corporate office made the transition simple and were completely transparent with each step. I’m so glad I was able to work with my family to grow our business and the outstanding support we received from corporate has continued over the years.” Multi-Unit Franchise Owner Amy Barber says.
