Why owning an Essential Pros staffing agency franchise will help entrepreneurs stand out in the $160 billion staffing industry
There are many questions an entrepreneur needs to ask before starting his or her own staffing agency – but the first question is also the most important: “Should I invest in a staffing franchise or start my own?”
As you probably know, a franchise is a ready-made, successful business model that entrepreneurs can buy into. Taking this route allows franchise owners to hit the ground running, with not only the know-how to successfully run his or her business, but also the comfort that they are backed with robust training and ongoing support to ensure a business thrives long-term.
Recruiting entrepreneurs looking into buying a staffing franchise would do well to consider Essential Pros as a viable option. Founded in 2007, Essential Pros has grown to multiple locations throughout Nebraska, where our reputation for delivering the best placements for our clients is highly regarded.
“We have perfected the business model and have a proven record of success with our clients,” says Rodney Christensen, Regional Manager of Essential Pros. “Through the relationship with clients, you always have the opportunity for revenue. There’s a lot of companies that are hiring, and it’s a great time to get into business because everyone is needing people. We’re not limited from a scale perspective, as we’re able to service a lot of different industries effectively. If an entrepreneur was to start this business on their own, they wouldn’t know how to make it profitable – but we do, and we’re excited to share this opportunity as Essential Pros continues to grow moving forward.”
As we begin to expand throughout the nation for the first time, Essential Pros offers several tremendous competitive advantages in the form of back-office support, proven leadership from our executive team and a business model that is straightforward, simple to run, quick to scale and maximizes profitability.
The Staffing Industry is Booming – With No End In Sight
If you haven’t decided to invest in an Essential Pros franchise yet, here’s another reason why you should: staffing is vital to the U.S. economy. By 2022, the U.S. workforce is expected to reach 163 million, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Millions of these workers will seek out staffing agencies to find temporary and long-term employment. 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.
If we still haven’t recruited you yet, understand that owning a staffing franchise in the $160 billion industry can be a highly lucrative business with high margins, low ongoing costs, and a constantly renewing customer base – if done right. Essential Pros is a terrific example of a brand that gets it right. According to our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document, Essential Pros has grown to such an extent that our offices average more than $2 million in gross sales.
How is this possible? Essential Pros makes it incredibly easy to open a staffing franchise, even for entrepreneurs who have never participated in the staffing industry. For the past 13 years, Essential Pros has invested in state-of-the-art technology that allows our franchise owners to act like CEOs, networking in their communities and forging relationships, rather than being saddled by the endless amount of back-end office work that owning a staffing business requires.
All of these things help make an Essential Pros franchise easy to run and quick to scale. Additionally, we don’t compete with other staffing franchise brands directly because we target small to mid-size communities and focus on helping light-manufacturing, agricultural and production businesses grow. All of these efforts combined have helped us carve out a special niche in a rapidly growing segment, and has made Essential Pros a worthy franchise opportunity.
