Q: Do I need a corporate or professional background to own a NEXTAFF Staffing Franchise?
A: To be a successful NEXTAFF Franchise Owner, a background in business to business (B2B) sales is an absolute must! We are looking for experienced professionals who are ready to take the knowledge they’ve gained in corporate America and apply it to growing their own business.
Q: What can I expect a typical day to look like as a Staffing Agency Franchise Owner?
A: One of the best things about owning a NEXTAFF staffing franchise is maintaining typical office hours, lending flexibility and balance to your life. Here’s a rough schedule of a day in a Franchise Owner’s life:
8:00 am: Arrive at office, verify new placement arrivals
9:00 am: Team debrief and client follow-up calls
10:00 am: Collecting timesheets
11:00 am: Sales follow-up calls
12:00 pm: Client lunch
1:00 pm: Work on sales proposals and follow-ups
3:00 pm: Recruiting calls
4:00 pm: Team debrief
5:00 pm: Leave for home!
Q: I have a background in information technology (IT) . Is it possible to open a NEXTAFF agency dedicated to a particular field?
A: Absolutely! In addition to our staffing agencies for commercial and office administrative services, NEXTAFF Franchise Owners can choose to open an agency focused solely on healthcare or IT placements. If you have a background in technology or healthcare, our Director of Franchise Development can provide you with detailed information on how to open a NEXTAFF employment franchise in one of those two specialty fields.
Q: If the back office is handling most of my day-to-day operations, what will I be doing as a Franchise Owner?
Q: How many staff members will I need to help run my office?
A: A NEXTAFF Staffing Franchise office can be run with minimal staff. Most of our Franchise Owners employ one recruiter and one business development representative to start, adding additional recruiters as the business grows.
Q: What kind of office hours can I expect to keep as a Staffing Agency Franchise Owner?
A: Depending on the vertical, your hours could be 8 AM-5 PM, Monday through Friday, with a few follow-ups after hours. Some verticals or specialties that operate 24/7 will require after-hours communications. In a recent survey conducted by Franchise Business Review, 94% of franchise owners stated they had flexibility in their work schedules and 75% stated they had work-life balance.
Q: What kind of office space is required to open a NEXTAFF staffing franchise for sale in my community?
A: We do require a small office space of around 800-1,200 square feet. All it needs are a few desks, computers, and minimal furniture. While we look for physical locations that are easy to find in high-volume traffic areas with close highway access, it is not necessary to secure grade-A real estate or to be at the main intersection.
Q: Do I get to pick my own physical location?
A: We will provide you with site selection parameters. You may use a local, commercial realtor and our COO will assist with site selection, and assist with lease terms.
Q: What franchise territory size can I expect to operate in?
A: One of NEXTAFF’s best features is our large franchise territory sizes. NEXTAFF franchise territories are typically the entire county an Owner lives in. They will encompass a minimum of 50,000 and a maximum of 500,000 paid employees from the most recent census bureau information.
Q: How long will it take to open my NEXTAFF Staffing Franchise location after signing my franchise agreement?
A: The typical ramp-up period from signing your agreement to opening your NEXTAFF office is approximately 60-90 days.
Q: I may not have the capital required for the initial financial investment — do you offer funding options?
A: NEXTAFF Staffing Franchise is proud to partner with Benetrends to offer franchise funding to qualified candidates. Learn more about Benetrends small business financing options HERE.
Q: Can I run a NEXTAFF franchise as a semi-absentee Owner?
Q: I am a people person and have spent my career in B2B sales management- as a Franchise Owner with NEXTAFF, will I still get to interact with prospective clients?
A: You certainly will! We are looking for experienced B2B sales professionals who love interacting with people and networking so that you can get out in your local community and start earning business.
Q: I was looking into franchising but now I’m a bit scared about the economy. Is a staffing agency really necessary when the economy is so uncertain?
A: Staffing agencies are necessary whether unemployment is high or low.
When unemployment is low, recruiting is tight and it is hard to find the right people with the right skills, so companies turn to us. When unemployment is high a company could post a listing for a remedial position and be inundated with applicants. In this instance, the company does not have the bandwidth to review all resumes and finds the benefit of a staffing company.
Also, it is extremely cost-effective for companies to utilize staffing agencies to find the right employees. All employees are already screened in advance and if an employee does not work out, the company can request someone else until they find that right fit. When a company tries to find employees on their own it is very time-consuming and costly. When using NEXTAFF Staffing Agency Franchise, that company can focus on the bigger picture and grow their business.
Q: Are staffing agency franchises like NEXTAFF still important even though we have online job recruiting websites like Indeed, Glassdoor, and CareerBuilder?
A: When Monster first came on the scene 20 years ago people thought it was the end of the staffing agency, but we have proven that the business model is here to stay. There is no way to replace the human element that is truly needed when trying to make the right placement. We use the internet to help us find employees but our proprietary X-FACTOR method includes a number of elements that need a human touch.
Q: I’m looking to franchise with a company that gives back to the community. Does NEXTAFF Franchise have any involvement with charities or nonprofit organizations?
A: NEXTAFF Staffing Franchise is proud to donate 10% of net franchise fees to charity. Since we began franchising, we have given back to a number of organizations for causes as diverse as cancer research, rare genetic diseases, drug addiction, and more.
Q: What is X-FACTOR?
A: X-FACTOR is our proprietary recruiting and screening method which delivers up to 100% greater results than typical methods used by staffing agency competitors.
Q: Why would companies use NEXTAFF instead of hiring their own employees?
A: Companies will save on time, payroll costs, marketing and other costs involved in onboarding an employee. NEXTAFF Staffing Agency Franchise is similar to a human resource (HR) extension for companies. We take care of finding the right employees so the company can focus on its bottom line.
Q: Do I have the necessary skills to become a NEXTAFF Franchise Owner?
A: Owning a NEXTAFF Staffing Agency Franchise is not for everyone. If you have strong sales skills, love to talk to people, and have a strong desire to succeed and be a part of a supportive system, then we invite you to start our mutual evaluation process.
Q: What does NEXTAFF's mutual evaluation process mean?
A: Our mutual evaluation process takes 6-8 weeks, and allows us to learn more about you to ensure that you are a good fit for our staffing franchise. This process allows you to complete your due diligence to see if NEXTAFF is the right franchise opportunity for you. To get started, please complete the form at the bottom of this page and our Director of Franchise Development would be happy to talk to you about the initial steps. There is no obligation and it is free!
Q: How much are your franchise royalty fees?
A: Unlike other franchise systems, NEXTAFF royalty is based on gross wages (total paid to all employees recruited for various companies), not your franchise location’s gross revenue. It starts at 8% for the first $1M and is reduced as your revenue increases. Our Director of Franchise Development can give more detail about how our royalty is calculated.
Q: What type of training is provided?
A: Once awarded a franchise, you will receive a combination of classroom training, both at NEXTAFF headquarters and via online instruction, and one week of on-site training once your franchise location opens.
Q: What type of support can I expect from the NEXTAFF team?
A: Franchise Owners will have access to our entire suite of back-office support, including payroll service for field employees, administration, marketing, operation assistance and much more. You will learn all the details in our mutual evaluation process.
