Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) December 18, 2012 - Jan-Pro International, Inc. (Jan-Pro), a global leader in commercial cleaning, has been named the #1 Commercial Cleaning Franchise overall, as well as recognized as the #1 fastest-growing franchise in commercial cleaning, in the newly-released, highly-acclaimed Franchise 500 Rankings by Entrepreneur Magazine.
The company is familiar with receiving such a premier leadership status among cleaning franchises. In the past 2 years alone, Jan-Pro has been recognized with franchise honors from USA Today, Franchise Business Review, PODER Magazine, Start Your Own Business Magazine, Black Enterprise and GI Jobs.
“In today’s franchise business economy, it is important to provide strong systems, products and support to entrepreneurs and executives looking to start their own business. Being the best means doing all these things on a regular basis,” said Rich Kissane, President & CEO of Jan-Pro. “Everyday we are committed to making sure the Jan-Pro Brand is a trusted leader.”
Unique product introductions and a history of firsts define the leadership character of the Jan-Pro Brand. A few recent examples include the expansion of Jan-Pro’s National Account Program offering clients unique 6-Star Service, the Jan-Pro VetConnection Program, the first of its kind, cleaning franchise opportunity specially designed for veterans, and the JP MedMetrix Program, the company’s first branded medical cleaning program offering compliance with federal, state and private agencies.
To be recognized as a top franchise in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 Rankings is a prestigious honor, as the selection process has been perfected over 31 years. All companies are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of the franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. Entrepreneur also considers the number of years a company has been in business, the length of time it has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. Industry experts consider it the most comprehensive franchise ranking system in the world.
“We know that products, programs and relentless pursuit of excellence are what produces a leader in any business,” continued Kissane. “Our entire Jan-Pro team, including each of our over 10,000 franchisees worldwide subscribe to this thinking.”
