Everybody wants a plush working or business place, but it needs regular cleaning, time and manpower as well. So Jani-King offers #1 commercial cleaning to those who dream a cleaner environment around. Jani-King knows the exact needs are of commercial office, manufacturing entities, large retailing outfits, health care units, hospitality industries and educational institutions.
The story started in 1968, when Jim Cavanaugh was a student at the University of Oklahoma and worked as a night auditor at a hotel chain. He realized that there would always be a need for janitorial services as long as there were office buildings. He began marketing janitorial services by day and cleaning buildings with his friends by night. Just within a year, Jim established Jani-King, and started franchising in 1974. Success of Jani-King today, has come with a lot of struggle and effort behind to serve for distinctive needs. Jani-King sets up franchisees with a customer base and charges fees depending on the size of that initial base.
Franchise Review Written By: andibindl
As a Jani King franchisee for the past seven years my opinion is instead of listening to blogs and comments from other lazy franchisees because they are lazy and wasting their time posting these silly reviews instead of focusing on their business, is to call the franchise owners listed in the Franchise Disclosure Docs. Having read these stories for the past several years from other franchisees in my area the thing that strikes me most is the main reason for their failure is their complete lack of effort on their behalf.
I work my butt off and have succeeded with JaniKing because my wife and I have put a lot of effort into it. At some point these franchisees need to take responsibility for their actions, Jani King advertises for me, they bill all my customers, collect from customers, provide me with workers compensation and liability insurance, and even provide an office for franchisees at the regional office to conduct business. They do all of this for 21%. I did a cost/benefit analysis on starting my own company, and I figured I would need $50,000 capital to start, and my gross expenses would hover around 41% not including payroll costs. I actually save 20% a month in costs as a Jani King franchise.
