Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) September 23, 2014 - Jan-Pro International, a leading commercial cleaning franchise and subsidiary of Premium Franchise Brands, today announced that Entrepreneur magazine has awarded the company the top spot in its ranking of global commercial cleaning companies. Today, Jan-Pro's global network serves over 35,000 customers through thousands of franchisees building businesses of their own in 13 countries.
Entrepreneur editors examined quantifiable criteria like system size, growth, financial strength and stability, and weighted that data to account for international size and growth. They only considered companies seeking new franchisees outside the U.S. and with a minimum of five open international locations.
"It's very gratifying to see the global expansion of our Jan-Pro business model. We're now in 13 countries with more announcements coming soon," said Richard Kissane, CEO of Premium Franchise Brands. "We represent a truly excellent opportunity for those wanting to apply their senior management skills to building their own businesses."
Jan-Pro's global impact and recent growth align with the International Franchise Association's (IFA) projected trends for expansion into the Middle East, Africa, and China. In 2013, Jan-Pro opened franchises in Mumbai, India, Lagos, Nigeria, and Lima, Peru.
"Franchising is growing a lot in Latin American countries, nevertheless the market isn't yet mature," explained Luis Salazar, owner of Jan-Pro of Peru. "Many franchisees are looking to get into quick-service restaurants, but the service sector has much more potential and profitability with less investment. Franchising with Jan-Pro offers a proven model with a low risk."
"From our start-up seven years ago, we are now fortunate to have 125 dedicated franchised business owners who provide exceptional service to nearly 500 businesses," said Bruce Weaver, master owner of Jan-Pro Cleaning Systems of Calgary. "Jan-Pro provides a great business opportunity for our franchisees by teaching them a program that delivers exceptional customer service to the businesses we serve."
"We just completed our third year of existence with Jan-Pro of Brazil," added Bernard Jeger, master owner. "Thanks to its brand recognition, advanced technology tools and know-how, as well as the advantages of the EnviroShield exclusivity, we are able to complete our expansion in this market."
"This award is a great recognition for Jan-Pro," said Riaz Rafiz, managing director of Jan-Pro Franchising Australia & New Zealand. "It's fantastic seeing the brand go from strength to strength."
"As one of the recent Country Masters, Jan-Pro has given me a great foundation on which to build my business," added Phil Ryan, Jan-Pro of UK master owner.
It has been a year of accolades for the 23-year-old company. Earlier this year, Entrepreneur magazine awarded Jan-Pro #1 in commercial cleaning and fastest growing commercial cleaning franchise, and the #12 overall franchise in its 35th Annual Franchise 500 rankings for 2014. Jan-Pro is also among this year's Top 50 Franchises for Veterans, which the World Franchising Network announced in June, and landed at #24 on Franchise Direct's Top 100 Global Franchises list.
