JAN-PRO International, a leading commercial cleaning franchise, continues to show rising development as they earn the #24 position in Franchise Direct’s exclusive global franchising list. This recognition is supported by JAN-PRO’s recent expansion into Middle Eastern, African, and Asian countries.
April 1, 2014 – Alpharetta, GA – JAN-PRO International continues to propel forward as they are recognized as #24 on Franchise Direct’s Top 100 Global Franchises. This places them as one of Franchise Direct’s top commercial cleaning companies in the world. JAN-PRO’s most recent international developments consist of their expansion into Nigeria, India, and Peru. Future developments include the expansion of their commitment to leading edge cleaning technologies.
According to Franchise Direct, their analysts have compiled the Top 100 rankings from researching factors such as: system size based on unit numbers, sales revenue, stability, market expansion, franchisee support and training, and years in operation. JAN-PRO has moved up five spots from their #29 ranking in the 2013 list.
“We’re increasingly becoming known in the industry as a successful franchising company, as opposed to being known just as a successful commercial cleaning company. That makes us especially proud, given the competitive nature of the franchising world,” says Richard Kissane, President and CEO of Premium Franchise Brands.
To further demonstrate JAN-PRO’s global impact, one can look at their recent growth and how it is align with the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) projected trends for this year. Among the trends listed is watchfulness of expansion into the Middle East, Africa, and China. In 2013, JAN-PRO opened franchises in Mumbai, India and Lagos, Nigeria, with plans of a location opening in China.
“Since we have returned from training, we have recruited office team members, signed two unit franchisee agreements, and are looking to add four regional franchises in New Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, and Bangalore,” says Pulin Shroff, Chairman of JAN-PRO of India. They are increasing their reach quickly through their targeting to high end offices like banks, financial institutions, and gymnasiums.
The IFA also projects a rise in young entrepreneurs (those below age 45). JAN-PRO has seen this trend manifested as well with the addition of Luis Salazar, 37 years old and Master Owner of JAN-PRO Del Peru. “I hold high aspirations for the Peruvian market,” says Salazar. “…And I believe that the JAN-PRO model will help develop small businesses with a high potential growth in an area that’s virtually unattended with the appropriate standards.”
JAN-PRO is currently hosting Master Training at their service center located in Atlanta, GA. The attendants have purchased franchises in London, UK and will be opening in the next coming months.
