What is an Express staffing franchise?

Express Employment Professionals is a leading staffing company in the U.S., Canada, Australia. We help people find rewarding careers in the communities that we serve. The staffing industry remains strong despite a fluctuating economy, playing an important role by matching job seekers with meaningful work. Franchise Owner Sylvia Elix says, “The most rewarding thing about owning a staffing franchise would have to be the people and also our clients alike. There’s that feeling that you get that you’re helping somebody, and it goes above and beyond business. It’s actually helping people help people.”  

Express has been recognized as the #1 staffing franchise by Entrepreneur magazine for the past 11 years in a row. Express is 100% franchised and brings over four decades of experience to the table, allowing our corporate headquarters team to focus solely on training and supporting our Franchise Owners.

What does owning an Express staffing franchise entail?

First, it’s important to know that you don’t need a staffing background to own an Express staffing franchise. We’re looking for owners with an entrepreneurial spirit that are community-minded, high-energy and natural leaders. 

Our Franchise Owners enjoy the opportunity that Express gives them to achieve work-life balance while earning good money. “Prior to owning the Express franchise, I was actually doing sales. I had done sales for pharmaceutical companies, as well as oil and gas companies … here I am today. I knew I could have success with the Express system because A) I believed in my sales ability, and B) Express’s system was fairly simple to follow,” says Franchise Owner KV Aulakh. “It’s almost like a recipe book. If you know the ingredients and you know how much of each item you need, you’re gonna have a delicious dish.” 

The actual process to become an Express Employment Professionals Franchise Owner begins with our Franchise Development Director giving you all the information you need, from investment costs to available markets and more. We’ll get an understanding of your background, interest level and qualifications. After that, you’ll review the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and connect with existing Express Franchise Owners to answer questions and validate if this franchise opportunity is right for you. As you near the end of the Franchise Owner process, you’ll meet the Express leadership team at a Virtual Discovery Day. Then, all that’s left is signing your franchise agreement.  

Am I the right fit to own an Express staffing franchise?

If you fit the hardworking, community-minded traits that we mentioned above, then you’re probably a great candidate to become an Express Employment Professionals Franchise Owner. Getting a franchise off the ground requires hard work; however, our Franchise Owners often tell us how partnering with Express was one of the best decisions they’ve made.
