Should I Start My Own Staffing Franchise?

Why Franchise Today?

The franchise industry is booming as people looking for all the benefits of being an entrepreneur, along with the resources of a big company, find the franchise model is the best path for a lucrative career. For so many Americans, franchising allows entrepreneurs the opportunity to run their own business, with all the support and help of a stable corporate backing that has a track record for success. It’s why Forbes magazine recently called 2022 the “Year of the Franchise.” And the staffing franchise industry has emerged as one of the best bet opportunities in the franchise world.

At its core, the staffing industry’s task is simple: help employers find the perfect candidate, as well as help job seekers find the job they’re looking for. “Recruiting” identifies and encourages potential job seekers to apply for positions, while “staffing” hires the best qualities candidates for the job. This work has become more important than ever after the events of the past two years have completely shaken the American economy and labor force.Essential Pros Staffing Franchise industry workers in a meeting

The Staffing Industry Bouncing Back

The staffing industry has grown to an astonishing $500 billion a year industry. According to Verified Market Research, the industry is expected to hit nearly $570 billion by 2028. It’s not hard to see why: companies and businesses will always be in the search to hire qualified candidates, while at the same time, people are always looking for jobs. Essential Pros have proven to be a service that is critical and necessary to the function of the American economy, no matter what obstacles – recessions or pandemics – are thrown in its path. According to the American Staffing Association, more than 3 million workers seek out staffing agencies every week, and staffing agencies help more than 17 million workers find work every year.

Like all industries during the COVID-19 pandemic, the staffing industry initially took a hit. But unlike some sectors, the staffing industry has rebounded beyond expectation, and is only projected to increase in the coming years as the workforce shuffle continues, otherwise known as “The Great Resignation.” After years of steady growth, the staffing industry decreased 11% in 2020. The next year, however, the industry made up those losses, and it was projected the industry would increase yet another 8% in 2022. Already, the staffing industry is back to 2017 levels and quickly rising, further proof there is definitely a booming future in the sector.
