Ready To Be Your Own Boss?

We are seeking natural leaders focused on customer service and growth by leveraging a sales-oriented mindset. Our owners have commonly led and managed teams and possess a driven spirit and unmatched motivation. They are natural relationship builders and strong communicators. Viewing business ownership as the next step in their career, we are looking for individuals looking to control their own destiny through business ownership.

Industry experience is NOT necessary. Over 95% of our existing owners have zero industry experience. While our owners have diverse backgrounds, they all share a common focus of taking care of their customers, following the Express System all while maintaining a positive attitude with the perfect amount of grit. Typically, candidates will need to be prepared to invest a minimum of $150,000 for the startup of the business and be able to cover personal living expenses for one year.
