Since 1979, Entrepreneur Magazine has held the Franchise 500. The Franchise 500 is, “the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking.” As the franchise world changes, Entrepreneur updates their ranking formula to determine which franchises are succeeding in the modern marketplace. This year, over a thousand different companies applied for consideration. JAN-PRO has placed in multiple fields throughout the years, and we are proud to say that in 2018, we ranked in three different categories.
The Any Budget ranking helps potential franchise owners determine the best franchises within certain budgets. The ranking breaks down into three different categories: Less than $100,000, Best Franchises for $100,000 to $500,000, and more than $500,000. JAN-PRO ranked number 6 in the Less than $100,000 category! JAN-PRO is the highest ranked commercial cleaning franchise in this category. In our Atlanta office, we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to start their own business. We are thankful our prices can reflect that!
The Fastest Growing category showcases companies that grow quickly and provide opportunities for their franchisees to grow at a similar pace. We are excited to say we placed fourth in this category! JAN-PRO’s low start-up costs and easy-to-follow business model are appealing to franchise owners from a variety of backgrounds. These are just two factors that play into why JAN-PRO is taking the commercial cleaning world by storm and shows no signs of slowing.
The overall Franchise 500 ranking considers a range of criteria including: costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. JAN-PRO was up against some major international corporations, and this year, we placed #51 overall. This is an achievement we are very proud of. We were ranked higher than national and international restaurant chains, fast food establishments and retail outlets.
All this to say, we are thankful for our corporate office as well as the people here in Atlanta that make our community so successful. JAN-PRO has earned its place as an affordable, but promising franchise network. If you have any questions about how you can get started with JAN-PRO.
