Express Employment Professionals (US) to Franchise in New Zealand
13 Sep 2021 - Express Employment Professionals announces the grand opening of its first franchise location in New Zealand.
The much-anticipated expansion of staffing agency Express Employment Professionals continues with the grand opening of its newest franchise in Rosedale, Auckland, New Zealand.
The expansion of the international employment business began in early 2021 with the company establishing a location in Sydney Olympic Park, Australia, to add to its more than 830 offices internationally. Today's announcement establishes the first Express franchise in New Zealand with more to come.
"This is an exciting chapter for Express Employment Professionals as we continue to connect good people with quality companies across the globe," Express CEO Bill Stoller said. "Our franchise model uniquely positions us for success. With local business experts on the ground, our headquarters in the United States is ready to support them with nearly 40 years of staffing experience and success."
Following an accomplished professional career in sales, development of Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, and accounting, ultimately serving as the chief financial officer for a mid-sized finance company, Rosedale franchise owner Brian Capper is excited to return to his true professional passion – teaching, training and development.
"For me, being a small business owner is not just about creating my own employment, it's about creating employment opportunities for others and living by my principles," Capper said. "Choosing to be an Express franchisee is the true alignment of those principles and values."
Capper says it hasn't hit his new team yet that they are part of a milestone in Express history as the first franchise office in New Zealand, but they are coming to realize how monumental it is.
"We feel enormously proud of being associated with Express and are very excited about being the first office in our country," he said. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be at the start of something great, and we look forward to being a vital cog in the wheel of the New Zealand community."
