An increasing demand for jobs and a rapidly changing workforce are creating new franchise opportunities for entrepreneurs
Although more than 42 million Americans have applied for unemployment since mid-March, the unemployment rate declined to 11.1% in June, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In fact, employment saw a spike in several industries, including manufacturing, retail, and other services and the staffing industry has seen an increase in work nationwide each week since early June. Essential Pros franchise specifically has seen a significant growth in business immediately following the outbreak of COVID-19.
Entrepreneurs who invest in an Essential Pros Staffing franchise can capitalize on the tremendous and new need for staffing services. The U.S. workforce is expected to reach 163 million by 2022, per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. This means that millions of job seekers will rely on staffing agencies to find temporary and long-term employment, making staffing agencies more relevant than ever before.
Fortunately, this is where our thriving recruitment franchise excels. Founded in 2007, Essential Pros continues to stand out in the booming $160 billion staffing industry by doing everything other staffing agencies say they do, but don’t. Our fast-growing staffing franchise prides itself on practicing The Essential Difference. This means that we conduct in-person interviews with all of our workers, and we assess individuals not only for relevant professional experience, but also character.
“We check references — meaning, we actually call their references,” says Powell. “We drug test. And we share this information with our clients, which gives them the peace of mind that we’ve actually done what we’ve said we were going to do. This is the reason for that after 13 years in business, Essential Pros hasn’t lost a single client — and that’s saying something, considering we’ve expanded to five locations in new markets in that period of time. That’s our Essential Difference.”
Standout in the Booming Staffing Industry With An Essential Pros Staffing Franchise
If you haven’t caught on yet, this is a good time to be in the staffing industry. Although there are more than 20,000 staffing and recruiting companies in the U.S., every company doesn’t get staffing right. With our dynamic staffing franchise, Essential Pros utilizes state-of-the-art technology and exceptional back-end office support, which allows our franchise owners to focus on growing their businesses, drive sales, and get the essential part right: connecting quality people with quality work. Even better, Essential Pros has spent the past 13 years building a business model that is not only easy-to-run, but also generates high profit potential and is easy-to-scale.
Whether you have industry experience or not, you will never be alone in business when you franchise with Essential Pros. From the very beginning, our thriving recruitment franchise has been committed to helping our franchisees thrive in business, which is a direct result of our culture. Essential Pros is a family business and that matters more than ever because staffing is a family business. Our Founder and CEO Travis Powell works alongside his wife, Nicole, who serves as Vice President of Essential Pros. Together they oversee five offices in Nebraska with exceptional leadership who have been with the company for years.
“One thing people don’t know about the staffing industry is that it’s a high sales business,” says Travis Powell, CEO and Founder of Essential Pros franchise. “Our average office produces over $2 million in annual sales. It’s also a very affordable business to own, and one that can grow very quickly. It’s a great time to join Essential Pros today because we’ve developed a business model over the past 13 years that has proven to work. We’ve been enormously successful and have grown consistently year-over-year. Now we want to share our proven business model with entrepreneurs who want to join a dynamic industry and own a business that truly makes an impact in their communities.”
