Ronnie and Susan Morris had each built successful corporate careers. But with company reorganization and the potential for relocation on the horizon, they were uncertain about their futures. Fortuitously, the couple had been exploring business ownership opportunities when they landed on Express Employment Professionals, a staffing franchise ranked #1 by Entrepreneur Magazine for the last 9 years.
Turns out, the growing franchise brand was right in line with the Morris’ own values of serving and community involvement. It was a perfect fit.
Ronnie and Susan jumped feet first into franchising, leaving the corporate world behind and relying on their own business and management skills to open their first Express Employment Professionals office in Jackson, Tennessee.
“It’s our passion, making a real difference in our community because we know we’re putting people to work and we’re changing people’s lives,” says Ronnie.
It’s been an extremely rewarding choice for the couple. They’ve been able to give back to a community that has given them so much. They get to put people to work in their community and really make a difference where they live and work. With the incredible support Express Headquarters provides, Ronnie and Susan have put thousands of people to work all while being able to maintain a small support team within their office, which leads to a low-cost overhead.
Express Employment Professionals Franchise Owners excel at being out in the community making connections and helping local businesses with their staffing needs. They are community connectors pursuing their passion of helping others.
The Oklahoma City-based franchise is a time-tested, recession-resilient business model. Its more than 830 offices across the US and Canada are incredibly busy keeping people employed and supporting essential businesses within their communities. The average Express Employment Office places 600+ jobseekers a year.
The brand also supports its Franchise Owners from the moment they sign their Franchise Agreement. Franchise Owners can expect ongoing training, marketing support, a franchisee Support Center, and a wealth of leadership training programs and conferences to help them become even more successful.
Opening an Express Employment Professionals franchise is as much a personal investment as it is a community investment. As Ronnie points out, “The rewards are more than just financial.”
