By connecting quality people with quality work, the thriving recruitment franchise has carved out its own lane in the growing staffing industry
When it comes to a staffing franchise, we’ve all heard the warning signs of a bad one: their application process is difficult and confusing, talent is forgotten about once they start working, and the recruiter is disorganized and unprofessional.
Fortunately, not all recruitment franchises are created equal. Entrepreneurs looking to invest in a recruitment franchise that prioritizes delivering the best placement for both clients and job seekers should consider an Essential Pros recruitment franchise.
Founded in 2007, our recruitment franchise has spent the past 13 years not only matching qualified candidates with the right job opportunity, but also creating a proven business model that is straightforward, simple to run, quick to scale and maximizes profitability. With multiple locations throughout Nebraska, we are ready to expand across the nation for the first time. Our No. 1 priority is to provide our franchise owners with the tools they need so they are free to focus on connecting quality people with quality work, as well as grow their businesses and drive sales.
“There’s never been a better time to invest in an Essential Pros staffing franchise,” says Travis Powell, CEO and Founder of Essential Pros. “Staffing is more relevant today than it was when I started this business 13 years ago. It’s getting harder and harder for companies to fill positions, and we go above and beyond to ensure that our clients get the right workers. We’ve spent the past several years investing in technology and building the back-end support that takes all the guesswork out of the business model, and provides a structured approach that is simple to implement, easy to run and scale. We’re enormously proud of our growth, and as we begin franchise operations for the first time, we cannot wait to welcome more entrepreneurs to our franchise family going forward.”
Stand Out in the $160 Billion Staffing Industry with the Essential Pros Difference
If you have not worked in the staffing industry before, you’ll be surprised to know that it’s worth $160 billion – and there’s a reason for it. First, staffing is vital to the economy as a whole. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. workforce is expected to reach 163 million by 2022. The best part? Millions of these workers will pass through recruitment companies on their way to finding temporary and long-term employment.
Second, if business is done effectively, the financial results can be very lucrative. This is where Essential Pros shines as a brand that gets it right. According to our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document, our offices average more than $2 million in gross sales. The reason for our success is quite simple: we do not compete with other staffing franchise brands directly. This is why we target small to mid-size communities and focus on helping light-manufacturing, agricultural and production businesses grow.
Additionally, we have made it easy for entrepreneurs, especially those without any staffing industry experience, to own and operate our rapidly expanding recruitment franchise. By investing in state-of-the-art technology, our franchise owners can act like CEOs and do not have to worry about back-end office work, including payroll, accounting and myriad administrative tasks that pop up on a daily basis. This means our franchise owners save money in the short-term and long-term because they can run growing businesses with a minimal number of employees, allowing for a much faster ramp-up time.
“I’m passionate about the staffing industry because I’m an entrepreneur as well,” Powell says. “I started our company 13 years ago, at a time when the economy wasn’t doing very well. We opened our first office, and very soon after, we opened a second office, which we were able to grow very quickly. Two years later, we acquired another company and we were able to grow those offices by 100 percent. This is because we have established the proven processes and systems necessary to make a business thrive. Now, we’re ready to share our model with other entrepreneurs and help them participate in the market, and in their local economies, at their full potential.”
