Franchisee Role

Express offers franchisees two ownership models. The Core Model requires an investment of $120,000 to $140,000 and an active role in new business development by the franchise owner. The Professional Market Model requires $170,000 to $196,000 and is formatted so the owner manages a sales staff of two and works with them to develop client relationships. Our franchisees enjoy the opportunity of owning their own business, and a life outside of the office with the balance of time to enjoy friends and family.

Successful Express franchisees come from diverse backgrounds, including senior business management, sales, finance, communications, marketing, manufacturing, IT, banking, education, and human resources.

Generally, we look for:

  • Sales or business aptitude
  • Minimum of five years proven leadership, sales, or sales management
  • Desire to make a difference in your community

Our owner-operator business model lets you create your own definition of success. Design your Express office around your strengths – what engages, excites, and challenges you.
