May 26, 2011 // Franchising.com // Alpharetta, GA — Jan-Pro International, Inc. (Jan-Pro), an established global leader in commercial cleaning, today graciously accepted the newest of its top business rankings - being named in USA Today as a "Top 50 Franchise for Military Veterans," being chosen as a "Military Friendly Franchise" by GI Jobs, and being selected as a "Top Franchise for 2011" overall, a highly-acclaimed honor bestowed by industry experts Franchise Business Review.
Unique product introductions and a history of firsts define the leadership character of the Jan-Pro Brand. One example is the recent launch of Jan-Pro's exclusive EnviroShield disinfectant system, a system that delivers 100% disinfectant coverage. Well-followed in the international press, EnviroShield has become a high-demand product, one only available from Jan-Pro.
"The Jan-Pro EnviroShield Disinfectant System is a great example of a unique product that leads the way in the commercial cleaning industry," said Rich Kissane, President & CEO, Jan-Pro. "It's part of the Jan-Pro Brand's total commitment to leadership, which includes our dedication to new product innovation, our strong support system for each Jan-Pro business, and solutions that offer important benefits to customers. We feel this combination really does make a difference."
Kissane was especially proud of the recent Top 50 Military Award, presented by the World Franchising Network, who selected Jan-Pro from hundreds of companies offering business opportunities to veterans. To be named a Top 50 winner, Jan-Pro demonstrated a significant number of operating units owned by veterans, as well as a high number of veterans in senior management earning over $60,000 per year. Additionally, Jan-Pro offers these veterans zero-interest financing.
"All of us at Jan-Pro recognize and support our country's servicemen and women for their sacrifices and dedication," said Kissane. "It is our extreme pleasure to welcome our vets back into the business world with a proven successful business opportunity, coupled with the financial incentive to help them achieve success."
