    Express of Rochester Hills, Troy & Clinton Township is Awarded "Franchisees of the Year" Honor

    Express Employment Professionals recognizes and honors franchisees who excel in building brand equity and a distinguished company reputation. A panel of executives at Express International Headquarters in Oklahoma City selected the Paul and Julie LaFrance to represent Express as its Franchisees of the Year 2017 due to their dedication to the company’s values of people, teamwork, service to others, and integrity.

    When Michigan couple Paul and Julie LaFrance sought a franchise opportunity 12 years ago, they discovered Express Employment Professionals. In the decade since, they have consistently met and exceeded the business goals they had set out to accomplish.

    The LaFrances were named Express Employment Professionals Franchisees of the Year for 2017 at the company’s International Leadership Conference in San Francisco, February 24, 2017.

    “Paul and Julie are perfect matches for the Express culture and work ethic,” said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express. “They value their business’ ability to do more than generate revenue.  Their devotion to family and faith drive them to give back to the community in truly remarkable ways.”

    As their business expanded to ownership of the Rochester Hills, Troy and Clinton Township Express offices, the LaFrances used their entrepreneurial success to find a sense of purpose. They have helped unemployed veterans get back on their feet, they support a homeless shelter for new single mothers to learn job skills that provide long-term care for their children, provide meals and transportation for the low-income elderly and homeless. In addition, the couple provides monetary and spiritual support for special needs children, cancer affected families, and intercity charter schools in their communities. 

    “Throughout all of their service to others, they’ve raised four exceptional children who are strong in both character and faith. Paul and Julie are perfect representatives of Franchisees of the Year, and Express couldn’t be more proud to honor them for their outstanding service and genuine hearts,” Funk said.
