The Opportunity

An Express Employment Professionals Franchise

Express offers new franchise owners the unique chance to build income and equity while helping people grow their careers and impact the local community. It’s a professional business with weekday hours. Individuals with staffing industry experience can also benefit from our “Boost to Ownership” package. Contact us for more information about this package.

As an Express Employment Professionals franchisee, you have the opportunity to become a pillar of the community by supporting businesses with workforce solutions as they grow and providing jobs to job seekers when they need it the most. By providing temporary workers when demand fluctuates and supporting contract and direct hire needs to fill in for open positions, Express franchisees become a vital piece of local small to medium sized businesses in their community.

The Requirements

Franchisee Role

Express offers franchisees two ownership models. The Traditional Model requires an investment ranging from $150,000 to $174,000 and an active role in new business development by the franchise owner. The Professional Market Model requires an investment ranging from $200,000 to $224,000 and applies to pre-designated territories with a high propensity for professional staffing. In this model, owners attend customized training and will manage a recruiting staff of two, unlike a traditional office with one person in this role. In both models, our franchisees enjoy the opportunity to own a business, while having a life outside of the office with time to enjoy friends and family.

Successful Express franchisees come from diverse backgrounds, including senior business management, sales, finance, communications, marketing, manufacturing, IT, banking, education, and human resources.

Generally, we look for:

  • Sales and business aptitude
  • Minimum of five years proven leadership, sales, or sales management experience
  • Desire to make a difference in your community

Our owner-operator business model lets you create your own definition of success. Design your Express office around your strengths – what engages, excites, and challenges you.
