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. 

We offer more than just operational support to our franchisees.  By providing multi-step marketing campaigns, sales training, and public relations assistance, our franchise owners are able to focus on growing their business.  Express also offers annual regional and international live training events, as well as continual education for staff and owners via our online university.

Franchisee Role
Express offers franchisees two ownership models.  The Core Model requires an investment ranging from $110,000 to $140,000 and an active role in new business development by the franchise owner.  The Expanded Model requires an investment ranging from $160,000 to $195,000 and is formatted so the owner manages a sales staff of two and works with them to develop client relationships.  Our franchisees enjoy the opportunity of owning their own business, and 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 or 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.
