Express Employment Professionals Awards 66 Franchise Agreements and 23 New Offices Worldwide During Record-Breaking Year in 2021
January 14, 2022 // Franchising.com // OKLAHOMA CITY - Express Employment Professionals, a global staffing provider franchise, announced today that 2021 was the most successful year in the company’s 39-year history. Express achieved its first-ever $1-billion quarter in Q3 while also awarding a total of 66 franchise development agreements, including 41 resales, and selling out the Florida market. Additionally, the brand awarded 23 new offices in new and existing markets, including Detroit, Michigan; Rockford, Illinois; White Plains, New York; and Toronto, Ontario.
“2021 was a banner year for Express and the success we’ve achieved over the last 12 months has positioned us for growth in 2022. We’re leveraging this momentum as we move into the new year, zeroing in on key markets throughout our international footprint where our professional workforce solutions are needed most,” said Vinny Provenzano, Vice President of Franchising. “As our client companies and businesses across the world continue to navigate labor challenges presented by the pandemic, we are more grateful than ever for our network of dedicated franchisees who continue to serve as vital resources in their respective communities, and we remain committed to helping good people and good jobs find each other.”
In 2021, Express awarded its first offices in Australia and New Zealand following its acquisition of Frontline Recruitment Group in February 2020.
“Express has been a provider of workforce solutions in the U.S. for nearly four decades, so I was energized to take my 20+ years of staffing experience and become the brand’s first franchisee in Australia,” said Sylvia Elix, owner and operator of the Express Employment Professionals office in Canberra, Australia. “Since joining Express, I’ve had the opportunity to experience the brand’s excellence firsthand and be a part of a supportive community that is committed to helping me succeed. I’m looking forward to growing my business and spreading awareness of Express as the leader in staffing throughout Canberra and beyond.”
Express ranked #25 on Entrepreneur magazine’s 2022 Franchise 500 ranking, jumping 31 spots from last year’s list. Additionally, Staffing Industry Analysts, the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions, named Express the fourth-largest staffing firm in the U.S. because of the company’s record 2021 sales. Express was also awarded a Franchise Innovation Award by Franchise Update Media in the Most Innovative Employee Hiring category for its drive-thru job fairs, which at the onset of the pandemic provided immeasurable value to communities by assisting job-seekers and businesses with finding and filling open positions, and was a supporting factor in the company placing 526,000 employees at client companies in 2020.
Express Employment Professionals is a flexible staffing franchise for people, communities, and businesses. The company works with job seekers to help them find the right job for their skills and experience, and annually employs over 552,000 people across 850+ franchise locations worldwide. Express franchisees have average annual sales per territory of over $5.4* million in the U.S.
