After being named No. 1 for global commercial cleaners by Entrepreneur magazine’s “Franchise 500,” Alpharetta, Georgia-based JAN-PRO continues to be a top choice for entrepreneurs seeking business ownership in a continuously growing industry.
Commercial cleaning ownership opportunity fits business leaders transitioning from corporate America who want to leverage those leadership skills in the top position in their own companies. Through JAN-PRO’s 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.
The brand currently serves more than 35,000 customers in 13 countries and has grown to a network of more than 10,000 owner-operators across the United States serving offices, healthcare facilities, schools and other commercial spaces, and continues to see great success attracting high-level executives to continue growing the brand.
The brand has seen great growth both domestically and internationally and Kissane projects that JAN-PRO could expand into two or three additional countries per year. Domestically brand leaders foresee momentum in sales growth continuing at the regional and owner-operator levels.
“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, and because of this we’ve been able to grow revenue steadily in the range of 7 to 8 percent annually,” said Kissane.
