Testimonials:

"Having now been a Franchise owner with Recognition Express for some 31 years I have seen many changes in the structure of the business. Over the years the network has grown and with it the Franchisor has equally grown adding great expertise in staffing and becoming very adept in seeking out new marketing opportunities for the Franchise and Franchisees to prosper in today’s growing market. With this impressive structure in place I would have no hesitation in recommending franchising as a solid platform to start a business and Recognition Express to be that way forward."
