Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011 - Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc. (Jan-Pro), an established global leader in commercial cleaning, today graciously accepted the recognition of being named a Top 10 Franchise for Veterans, on behalf of the many veteran-owned Jan-Pro franchisee businesses, serving our military and government’s cleaning needs.
With innovative product and system introductions, like EnviroShield, the unique system that delivers 100% disinfection coverage, Jan-Pro has a firm track record of franchise leadership year after year. This Jan-Pro veteran award is the newest in a long list of Military and Veteran accolades awarded the company, including recently being chosen a “Top 50 Franchise for Military Veterans,” by World Franchising Network, and as a “Military Friendly Franchise” by GI Jobs.
“I have been so lucky to have been given an opportunity to start a franchise business with Jan-Pro,” said Steve Greer, Franchise Owner with Jan-Pro of Kansas City, and US Navy veteran who served on the USS Ticonderoga CV 14, an aircraft carrier during the Vietnam War. “I had always considered a cleaning business, and after meeting with Jan-Pro, it became clear that this was the direction I wanted to go. It has paid off in so many ways, both monetarily and job satisfaction.”
Nakita and Dwayne Cruse are both vets and Jan-Pro of San Antonio owners. Nakita served in the marines, stationed in Okinawa, and Dwayne in the Army, stationed in Germany, Turkey, Istanbul, Kuwait and the US. “We were proud to serve our country and also to be franchise owners with Jan-Pro.” The sentiment runs the same with Jan-Pro veteran owner, Doel Miranda, Jan-Pro of Puerto Rico.
Justin Cali, Vet and Owner of Jan-Pro Orlando and Palm Beach put it succinctly: “I am proud of many things I have been blessed to be able to do throughout my life and career, including serving my country in the Army, both as an enlisted soldier and as an officer. Through the skills I developed in areas such as leadership, teamwork and mission accomplishment, I have been able to apply those valuable skills in the building of a successful Jan-Pro Master Franchise Business.”
The many veteran-owned Jan-Pro businesses across the country have received tremendous support and encouragement from US Military and Government operations. For example, Jan-Pro of Raleigh cleans a facility on the US Army base of Fort Bragg in North Carolina, and Jan-Pro of Puerto Rico cleans the Federal Customs Offices in San Juan.
Dennis Thompson, VP Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc., and himself a US Air Force veteran, encourages veterans to look to Jan-Pro as a business idea: “The Jan-Pro model offers enormous opportunities for both active and inactive veterans for beginning a new career through exceptional training, financial assistance and long term growth potential.”
“We are very proud to be recognized as a top franchise for veterans, as we are commited to helping in this very special business endeavor,” said Rich Kissane, Jan-Pro. “We salute our veterans and thank them for their service.”
