Express Employment Professionals has announced that 2021 was the most successful year in the company’s 39-year history. It awarded 66 franchise development agreements, including 41 resales and managed to sell out the entirety of the Florida market. The staffing franchise added 34 new franchisees to its system in 2021.
“2021 was a banner year for Express’ franchise development and the success we’ve achieved over the last 12 months has positioned us for exponential 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.”
For 2022, Express has aggressive plans in place for expansion in San Francisco; Queens, New York; Long Island; Boston; Houston; Providence, Rhode Island; and College Park, Maryland, among others. It will also focus on franchise opportunities in Australia and New Zealand after its acquisition of the Frontline Recruitment Group in February 2020. Express awarded its first Australian office in Canberra in May 2021, and July 2021 for New Zealand. It is targeting Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch for future development.
“Express has been a respected leader of providing 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.”
