Express Employment Professionals is on an aggressive expansion campaign to reach 800 franchise locations in 2016, including nine locations in Chicago and surrounding towns. The staffing company is looking to expand in Northfield, Rockford, DeKalb, LaSalle and Aurora.

(PRWEB) October 05, 2016 - Driven by a passion to put a million people to work annually, Express Employment Professionals is on an aggressive expansion campaign to reach 800 franchise locations in 2016, including nine locations in Chicago and surrounding towns.

“As more businesses and job seekers in Illinois continue to rely on the services of staffing firms, we are looking to expand in and around Chicago,” said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express.

Areas for expansion in Chicago include uptown, west, south-central and Jackson Park. The staffing company is also looking to expand in Northfield, Rockford, DeKalb, LaSalle and Aurora.

According to the American Staffing Association, more than 3 million people work for a staffing company during an average week. During the course of a year, staffing companies hire more than 14 million temporary and contract employees.

Express has been named one of the best franchises to buy, according to Forbes’ ranking of America’s best and worst franchises. The staffing franchise ranks fifth among franchises with an investment level less than $150,000.

“The staffing industry is booming, and Express is ranked No. 1 in its category on the 2016 Entrepreneur 500 for the fifth year in a row,” Funk said.

Express franchises open more than two years have average annual sales of $5.6 million, and first-year sales average more than $1 million. Currently, there are 31 Express Employment Professionals franchise locations in Illinois.

“We’re a small business operating with a great purpose,” said David Lewis, vice president of franchising for Express. “Every time a new Express franchise opens, an average of 600 more people find jobs annually.”
In 2015, Express put 18,037 people to work in Illinois.
