JAN-PRO, a leading global commercial cleaning franchise, has presented the 2013 Founder’s Award to Randy Ivy and Renato Gragasin, Master Owners of the Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Harrisburg, and Pittsburgh areas. The accolade was announced at a recent national conference in San Antonio, TX, with hundreds of other JAN-PRO franchise owners in attendance.
JAN-PRO’s founder Jacques Lapointe presented the award and recognized the office for their ability to execute the JAN-PRO system, their contribution to the team, and the holistic positivity they bring to the brand. Randy and Renato were quick to give thanks to their team.
“This award belongs to the hardworking staff in our offices and franchise owners,” says Renato. “It’s a total team effort; without them it would not have been possible.”
Randy and Renato’s JAN-PRO businesses altogether have over 300 franchisees and 1,100 customer accounts. Their territory reaches to the Washington D.C. Metro Area, the Baltimore Metro Area, Harrisburg, PA, and Pittsburgh, PA. A few of the businesses they serve include AAA Mid-Atlantic, MedStar Health, Barnes & Noble, and Kool Smiles. Their benefit to the community is two-fold: they are providing both lucrative employment opportunities and also first-rate cleaning processes to many of the local businesses.
