Throughout 2014, JAN-PRO expanded its network of more than 10,000 owner-operators across the United States. JAN-PRO franchises serve offices, health care facilities, schools and other commercial spaces seeking the highest levels of cleanliness. Most recently, JAN-PRO has continued its success in Northern New Jersey with new Regional Master Franchisees, Dave and Mary Carson.
As an experienced operations executive with companies like Sotheby’s International Realty and AES Corporation, to Dave Carson systems are key. When he and Mary were seeking a new business opportunity in New Jersey the Jan-Pro master territory in the area was up for sale. After studying the business model, meeting the executive team and the Northern New Jersey market, the Carson’s felt they could bring their background in operations and strategic planning to the commercial cleaning business. They believe they can double this offices business with the high number of commercial spaces in the area.
“As the fastest growing commercial cleaning franchise, JAN-PRO is constantly seeking new owners who will invest in the communities they serve,” said Rich Kissane, chief executive of Premium Franchise Brands, parent company to JAN-PRO and sister residential-cleaning brand Maid Right. “We are thrilled to have Dave and Mary join our system. Their background is a perfect fit and we look forward to the Carson’s to lead the charge for JAN-PRO’s growth New Jersey.”
JAN-PRO sees plenty of headroom for further domestic growth and seeks driven candidates to expand the brand as master regional franchisees. The executive business opportunity fits business leaders transitioning from corporate America who want to leverage their skills in the top position at their own company. 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.
“Our executive opportunities offer a great way for C-level professionals with the drive to start their own business access recurring revenue streams,” said Kissane. “Additionally, our model is focused on home-based business owners who work hard and look to improve the lives of their families. Both opportunities work in tandem to create the foundation of JAN-PRO.”
JAN-PRO also features a robust international growth opportunity, further demonstrating the strength of the brand’s business model; a customer guarantee and signature products like EnviroShield®. The hospital-grade disinfectant uses a specially designed sprayer to cover 100 percent of all areas in any commercial environment, via an electrostatic negative charge that causes the cleaning solution to surround and cling to every surface it touches, eradicating all traces of bacteria.
JAN-PRO is actively seeking the best owners across the globe with a current focus on Latin America, Asia and Europe.
“Even in tougher economic times, businesses have to keep their offices and facilities clean for the benefit of their employees, which makes our segment fairly recession-resistant,” Kissane added. “JAN-PRO was able to grow throughout the economic downturn because the brand not only redoubled its efforts to recruit dynamic business leaders, but also invested heavily in technology and product enhancements.”
