The franchising business model was second nature to Neil McMillan. That’s because he was a franchise broker who had steered hundreds of people toward fulfilling and rewarding lives as franchise owners. Over the years, he had referred clients to Express Employment Professionals, the Oklahoma City-based staffing provider with more than 830 offices across the US and Canada. Time and again when he would follow up with his clients who had joined Express Employment Professionals, they would rave about how great it was to be an Express Franchise Owner. He began to think maybe he was missing out on something for himself.
As he began researching the brand, he found more and more franchise operators who had nothing but positive things to say about the company. He liked what he heard. He took the leap, opened his own location, and today is a successful Express Franchise Owner in Oxnard, California.
“I can’t think of another franchise opportunity that will give you the same earning potential,” he says. “I wanted to be in business for myself, not by myself.”
That’s significant, he says, because with Express Employment Professionals, Franchise Owners have the ability to grow as big as they want to. Franchise Owners operate as small business owners with the resources of a large international organization behind them. What’s more, there’s a strong connection between all the franchise owners who actively support one another, making the company more like a family.
McMillan says Franchise Owners can be successful with Express Employment Professionals as long as they are willing to go out and look for clients and focus on growth. If so, he says, success will happen no matter what the market conditions.
Successful Franchise Owners are active in their communities making connections and helping local businesses with their staffing needs. It’s a passion that operators have for serving as community connectors.
The corporate office provides owners with ongoing training, marketing support, a 24/7 Support Center, and a wealth of leadership training programs and conferences to help them succeed as Franchise Owners.
“You don’t have to worry about creating new marketing materials. You don’t have to worry about the back end of the office. You don’t have to worry about the finance and payroll,” says McMillan. “We can focus all of our attention on working with clients and working with new companies.”
Express Employment Professionals offers a time-tested, recession-resilient business model opportunity. The brand’s Franchise Owners are experts at keeping people employed while supporting essential businesses within their communities. On average, more than 600+ jobseekers are placed by the company each year.
