Jan-Pro Expansion Proves Franchise is Commercial Cleaning’s Premier Executive Growth Opportunity
Brand Paves Way for Development with Recent Signings in Georgia, Florida and Louisiana
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) November 25, 2014 - With a commanding lead in product innovation and the strongest customer guarantee in the commercial-cleaning segment, Jan-Pro has recently signed agreements for the Florida Panhandle, Columbus, Georgia and Louisiana, extending its trademarked cleaning processes, advanced technologies and commitment to the customer. These qualities have distinguished Jan-Pro in the industry as the top franchise opportunity for high-powered corporate leaders, minorities and veterans returning to the workforce who wish to own their own cleaning business.
The brand has grown to a network of more than 10,000 owner-operators across the United States serving offices, health care facilities, schools and other commercial facilities seeking the highest levels of sanitation and cleanliness. Over the past several years, Jan-Pro has managed to grow revenue 7 to 8 percent annually and it expects to add 1,000 local franchisees during the next year.
Jan-Pro sees plenty of headroom for further domestic growth and seeks driven candidates to expand the brand as regional master franchisees. Select territories are available in markets across the country, including Texas, New York and Michigan. The opportunity fits business leaders transitioning from corporate America who want to leverage their leadership skills from top positions in their own companies. Through this owner-operator business model, the regional leaders get to concentrate on growing their businesses by finding and coaching first time owners and marketing in their territories to bring in more accounts.
"The Jan-Pro opportunity goes far beyond any conventional franchise; it is an executive-growth opportunity, because Jan-Pro regional master franchisees build real wealth by recruiting, training and supporting other entrepreneurs," said Rich Kissane, chief executive of Premium Franchise Brands, parent to Jan-Pro and sister residential-cleaning brand Maid Right. "Jan-Pro is ideally suited for leaders transitioning from corporate America to a new career that lets them leverage their experiences in the C-suite, but for the benefit of their own businesses and their families."
Jan-Pro boasts a major competitive advantage with its EnviroShield® system for completely cleaning any business or commercial facility, including hospitals. EnviroShield® combines a hospital-grade disinfectant with a specially designed sprayer to cover 100 percent of all surfaces in any commercial or residential environment. Using an electrostatic negative charge, the sprayer causes the cleaning solution to surround and cling to every surface it touches and eradicate all traces of bacteria. EnviroShield® is powerful enough to be the frequent-use cleaner of choice in health care facilities, but because it has no harmful effects to users' skin, eyes or lungs, it is gentle enough for use in day care centers and nursing homes.
Jan-Pro's confidence in EnviroShield® - as well as in EnviroShield® Endure™, its complementary product that provides a preventive layer of bacteria-fighting power to 100 percent of a facility's surfaces for six to 12 months - supports the brand's customer guarantee that is unrivaled in the commercial-cleaning industry. Jan-Pro is the only national cleaning franchise to offer clients a written guarantee promising a free cleaning session if any aspect of Jan-Pro's service fails to satisfy the customer.
Jan-Pro also features a robust international growth opportunity, further demonstrating the strength of the brand's business model, customer guarantee and signature products like EnviroShield®. The company recently agreed to development deals in Peru, Nigeria and India, which brought its international system to 13 countries. Kissane projected that Jan-Pro could expand to two to three additional countries per year. Domestically, brand leaders foresee momentum in sales growth continuing at the regional and owner-operator levels.
"Even in tougher economic times, businesses take care of their offices and facilities by keeping them clean for the benefit of their employees, which makes our segment fairly recession-resistant," Kissane said. "Jan-Pro was able to grow throughout the economic downturn, because the brand not only redoubled its efforts to recruit dynamic business leaders, but it also invested heavily in technology and product enhancements."
Jan-Pro International was founded in 1991 in Providence, Rhode Island, to offer the highest-quality cleaning techniques and systems available to offices and commercial and health care facilities. Jan-Pro's global network of thousands of unit and master franchisees serves more than 35,000 customers in 13 countries. The Alpharetta, Georgia-based company, a subsidiary of Premium Franchise Brands, was recognized with the No. 1 ranking for global commercial cleaners, fastest growing commercial cleaning franchise and the top overall commercial cleaning franchise in Entrepreneur magazine's 2014 "Franchise 500."
