As a student at the University of Oklahoma in 1968, Jim Cavanaugh worked as a night auditor at a hotel chain. While there, he realized that there would always be a strong need for janitorial services as long as there were office buildings. He began marketing janitorial services by day and cleaning buildings with his friends by night. Within a year, Cavanaugh established Jani-King and in 1974 he started franchising. A commercial cleaning service, Jani-King sets up franchisees with a customer base and charges fees depending on the size of that initial base.
