Express Employment Professionals Launches “No Franchise Fees” Incentive to Attract First Time Owners

May 10, 2023

OKLAHOMA CITY (May 9, 2023) Express Employment Professionals, the leading global staffing provider franchise, announced plans to expand the brand throughout the U.S. by introducing, for the second year, a limited-time development incentive for new franchise owners.
