Express Adds 700th Franchise Location

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Express has hit the magic formula for a successful company. According to CEO and chairman of the board, Bob Funk, there is no doubt that the franchising business model is proving to be the greatest answer for businesses coming out of the recession.

Express recently awarded its 700th franchise location and the company shows no signs of slowing down. With offices in the U.S., Canada and South Africa, Express has rapidly expanded since the great recession of 2009. In the past three years alone, Express has grown from 553 franchise locations to more than 700. Additionally, sales are up 152 percent since the beginning of 2010.

Congratulations Louis and Vernita Williams Louis and Vernita Williams of Lansing, IL, are the new owners of the 700th Express office. Louis was a pharmacist for 20 years and a pharmacy owner for 10. He has a degree in chemistry from Indiana University, a Master of Business Administration from Purdue University and a doctorate in pharmacy at the University of Illinois. Vernita managed several retail nutritional businesses for more than 10 years and was the human resources manager of the pharmacy she and Louis owned. She is a graduate of the Joseph School of Business and Entrepreneurship and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business management from Indiana Wesleyan University. Why They Chose Express The couple became interested in starting their own staffing company and after looking into various franchise organizations, the Williams family selected Express.

"My wife and I were looking to join an organization with a stellar support system. Express was a perfect fit," Louis said. "My professional life has always had meaning, but this career choice has special significance for me. The opportunity to help families and give them the chance to work gives me a special sense of purpose in this world. An Express franchise will also provide the financial security my family and I have desired for so long." Free Lease Program It's a great time to join Express!
