As a NEXTAFF Franchise Owner, you can realize your dream of entrepreneurship by bringing companies and quality employees together.

*Numbers obtained from Item 19 of our 2020 FDD
Why Now?
During times of high and low unemployment, companies still rely heavily on staffing agencies.
In our 20+ years in this industry, we have seen firsthand that high unemployment rates lead to businesses becoming inundated with applicants, even for remedial positions. Companies tend to lack the bandwidth to review each resume and spend the time and resources needed to find the right fit. In times of low unemployment businesses simply cannot find talent to fill open positions.

Utilizing a staffing agency is a cost-effective and efficient way for businesses to find the right employees. That means when using NEXTAFF, companies can focus on their core expertise and continue to grow their business!

As a leading economic indicator, the staffing industry typically leads the economy six months before other industries.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I want to own a franchise with a strong potential for success. What does NEXTAFF offer that other staffing companies don’t?
Hiring and screening employees is costly, and companies may find themselves having to start at square one over and over again when they hire the wrong candidates. NEXTAFF helps companies reduce these costs by serving as an extension of a company’s HR department, working to find employees that are an excellent match for the job. 

I have zero staffing industry experience. How can I be sure I’ll be able to successfully recruit new talent for clients? 
Thanks to our proprietary X-FACTOR system, our astounding success rate has been statistically proven to outperform our competitors’ recruiting methods by up to 100%! 

I want to own a franchise that I can build into an empire. How can franchising with NEXTAFF help me focus on growing a successful business?
Our back office handles payroll and provides support for over 1,000 field employees. Not only does this allow you to concentrate on building a successful business empire, but it also gives you a clear advantage over competitor staffing agencies in your area!

Ideal Candidate
We’re looking for qualified investors who are passionate about bringing NEXTAFF’s proven sales and recruiting process to companies and job-seekers in their community. Currently, our most successful Franchise Owners tend to possess the following characteristics. Does this sound like you? 

  • Do you possess a sales background, specifically in B2B sales? (While NO STAFFING INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED, it is necessary to have a solid background in sales.)
  • Are you experienced in executive-level business management? Do you have knowledge of P&L and other high-level business operations?
  • Would you describe yourself as a high-energy person with a positive attitude? Are you committed to providing exceptional customer service?
  • Are you looking for a franchise that will allow you to grow a business in a booming industry?

Training And Support
NEXTAFF offers a level of support that is not present in many franchises, let alone franchises in the staffing industry. 

  • Training -  Some of our most successful Franchise Owners come to us with little to no experience in the staffing industry. Our comprehensive initial training program covers all the basics of operating a successful NEXTAFF location so you can open your doors with confidence. 
  • Back-Office Support - Franchise Owners can rely on our robust support network to handle virtually all back-office operations associated with running a staffing agency. Our Franchise Owners can focus on attracting new business and maintaining existing client relationships while the support team does the heavy lifting.
  • Marketing Support - The NEXTAFF Support Team is constantly producing new marketing collateral and researching cutting-edge strategies to help you put your NEXTAFF location at the forefront of the local business scene. 

In 1998, Cary Daniel and James Windmiller ambitiously started their first staffing company, and were blown away by the success of their business as they grew to 10 locations within the first 18 months! After selling their staffing business in 2003, Cary and James spent time reflecting on the avoidable mistakes they had made which had cost them valuable time and money. They began to realize that others could benefit from their newfound knowledge and would be able to launch a staffing business easier, faster, and with a stronger ROI.
Taking all lessons learned into account, they launched NEXTAFF in 2004. By taking a step back and speaking with clients while analyzing the bottom-line impact of their services, they identified new opportunities where they could provide the most value. Thanks to their new business model, NEXTAFF was able to thrive throughout the 2009 recession, growing by 15% while the rest of the staffing industry was down 30%! 
In 2016, NEXTAFF continued to differentiate itself from the competition by giving Franchise Owners access to a large back-office support system that provides a multitude of resources for people in the staffing industry.
To better serve their clients and add additional value to their services, the company spent a year researching all available hiring methods in order to launch its proprietary X-FACTOR method in 2017. Once launched, Cary and James became hyper-focused on franchise growth. 
Today, NEXTAFF is dedicated to expanding its footprint and helping entrepreneurs achieve their dreams across the country while maintaining all back-office support at one facility in Overland Park, KS.


"Owning a NEXTAFF Office has been an amazing adventure for us. Being a business owner has been a dream come true for us because it has given us the opportunity to be both full-time moms who are actively involved in our children’s schools and extra-curricular activities and business owners." Beth K and Rachel R, Raleigh Franchisee
"Ground floor opportunity, support, new franchise, support, working on my business and not in my business, were all the words that were important to me when choosing a staffing franchise, but the most important word to me was support. As I prepare now to continue my recruiting efforts for my largest client who has increased their order fourfold since they started with us, I am grateful for the support of our corporate office. As an experienced operations manager, I understand workflow, so, once I gained this job order, I knew I could ensure we did an excellent job with the work. However, as a non-staffing professional, I needed the support necessary to recruit such a large number of employees in a relatively short period of time. Our Support Office was right there to lend me a hand, and for that I am grateful. I have never felt like just a number at Nextaff, I have always felt like I was part of a family." Buffy Butler, Miami Franchisee
"I want to reach out to you and thank you and your firm for helping Abacus Search with a conversion model to do contract staffing. The Nextaff model has helped us grow significantly during the last year. Abacus Search historically specializes in Direct Hire Recruitment. As a firm, we were looking to broaden our services and diversify into the Contract Staffing world. After looking at the time and cost involved with funding and handling the payroll, taxes, workers compensation, unemployment insurance, handling unemployment claims and more, we decided we needed to look at an outsourced model. "Nextaff has been our choice for growing our firm and entering into the Contract Staffing market. We have experienced exceptional service and the ability to manage our account online has been very valuable. Nextaff also provides more reports than you would ever need through their on-line system. I am very pleased with our decision to partner with Nextaff as our outsourced provider to handle our Contract Staffing needs. This has given our Consultants a whole new service to provide our clients which has become very valuable to the growth of our firm." Mike Blair, Nextaff Abacus Conversion Franchisee
"Nextaff as a franchisor provides excellent back office support for franchisees like myself eliminating the need for us to be an expert in areas that do not add to our bottom line. I can sincerely say that I am thrilled with my business, which is ideal for those of us who are tired of working for someone else, this business model really allows you to take control of your future." John Snellings, Denver Franchisee (former - sold in 2009)
