Need a career change? Consider a low-investment franchise.

Man working at low-investment franchise

If you’re searching for a new direction but think franchise ownership is too costly for you, think again. You don’t have to spend millions of dollars to purchase a top franchise in Australia. There are many businesses that offer franchise opportunities at all investment levels.

Owning your own staffing franchise is a great way to put your sales or business background to work for you. A staffing franchise partners with businesses and people in the community to match open positions with applicants who have the right skill set. Express Employment Professionals is a proven staffing franchise brand that’s growing strong, with 860+ locations around the world. Franchise Owners enjoy flexible hours that lead to better work-life balance, with more time for family, friends and favorite activities. 

How much does a franchise cost? 

Like any business venture, there are pros and cons to investing in a franchise. Ownership costs vary, and there are many things to consider when looking at the total amount required for each opportunity. Be sure to pay attention to financial information, like the amount of your initial investment and any fees or royalties that are collected.

Another important step is reviewing the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which contains detailed information about the opportunity you’re considering along with a copy of the franchise agreement you will be required to sign if you decide to become a Franchise Owner. 

Besides monetary and legal factors, you should also consider the opportunity for growth in the industry and the amount of support you’ll receive from the corporate headquarters. Express is known for its outstanding Franchise Owner support, offering extensive training through the entire journey to ownership and beyond. On-the-ground support is available from the Sydney office, and a network of Franchise Owners is ready to help you get your business up and running.

Franchise Owner Sylvia Elix in the Canberra, ACT office says, “The back office and support are fantastic, but you’ve also got over 860 offices and Franchise Owners around the world that you can call any time.” 

Do I need to pay franchise fees? 

Yes. A franchise fee is the cost you pay as a Franchise Owner to use the franchisor’s name, business systems and more. The amount of the fee varies from franchise to franchise, with some fees climbing into six-figure amounts.

Fortunately, there’s good news when it comes to the Express franchise fee: 2023 marks the 40th anniversary of Express Employment Professionals. To celebrate, they are offering a 40% franchise fee rebate to Franchise Owners that open in select Australia and New Zealand markets in 2023. The Express franchise fee is $70K, so that means new owners will receive a rebate of $28K that they can invest back into their business. 

Am I a good fit for owning a staffing franchise?

You don’t need a staffing background to invest in Express. Any type of sales or business experience will help you as you work to build your business. An outgoing, energetic personality is also useful, as you will be working to establish relationships with others in your community. Natural leadership ability and the motivation to create a successful business are additional qualities that Express looks for in its Franchise Owners.

Financially, you should have a net worth of at least $170K and liquid assets of at least $190K.  

“This is definitely the best franchise you could have,” says Franchise Owner Lisa Diajo. “It’s such a great organisation. I’m so glad we decided to do this.”
