Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc. (Jan-Pro), an established global leader in advanced commercial cleaning, in honor of the Veteran’s Day holiday, saluted America’s veterans and the numerous military veterans who are part of the Jan-Pro family.
Long-established as a leader in commercial cleaning, the Jan-Pro brand has now also been recognized and established as a top franchise for veterans, receiving a host of coveted Veteran Accolades including:
· “50 Top Franchises for Veterans” – USA Today
· “Top Vet Franchise” - Entrepreneur
· “Top 100 Vet Friendly Franchise” – Franchise Business Review
· “Top 10 Military Friendly Franchise” – GI Jobs
Many military veterans have selected Jan-Pro as their top choice, and the company takes pride in being recognized in this very important segment of business in America today.
“After my service in the Army, my wife and I were able to realize our dream of starting our own business through Jan-Pro,” said Rafael Marrero, Jan-Pro of Atlanta. “In our first year we grew by over 400% through new client referrals!”
America’s military teaches strong skill sets and instills discipline. This education and experience have shown to be important elements to running a successful veteran-owned Jan-Pro business.
“My leadership education and experiences as an Enlisted Soldier, and later as an Officer have proven to be as valuable in my Jan-Pro business as they were during my military career.” Justin Cali, Owner Jan-Pro of Orlando.
Christopher Robertson, Jan-Pro of Jacksonville agrees: “My military experience definitely prepared me to run my Jan-Pro franchise. We learned about leadership, accountability, and most of all how to take care of your people. I serve my Jan-Pro customers with the same pride and professionalism I learned in the U.S. Navy.”
“Running a commercial cleaning business requires many of the same skills veterans learn in the service,” said Dennis Thompson, VP Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc. and himself a US Air Force veteran. “We are committed to the success of our veterans through the Jan-Pro VetConnection Program.”
In May of 2012, Jan-Pro launched the VetConnection Program, the first of its kind, branded, fully customized cleaning franchise opportunity specially designed for veterans. Different investment levels are available, and Jan-Pro consults with vets on their business growth plans to help determine what works best for their individual needs.
With Jan-Pro, a veteran utilizes similar skill sets and methods as learned in the military to build a successful Jan-Pro business. After selecting a location for his or her Jan-Pro business and signing up, the veteran receives strong support from Jan-Pro, including complete training, full support services, and Jan-Pro even supplies the new veteran-owned business with customers, so no selling is required.
The Jan-Pro VetConnection Program is positioned for Veterans who want to start their own business, as “Your Next Mission.” Veterans are encouraged to learn more about the Jan-Pro VetConnection Program at http://www.jan-pro.com
Jan-Pro President and CEO, Rich Kissane summarizes Jan-Pro’s feelings on providing opportunity to veterans: “Jan-Pro is thankful for the all those who have served and are currently serving our country. It is our honor to have many of these fine men and women as part of our Jan-Pro family!”
