ALPHARETTA, GA (PRWEB) June 08, 2017
Standing out in the $58 billion commercial cleaning industry is no easy feat. However, JAN-PRO, a subsidiary of Premium Franchise Brands, continues to rise above the rest. Ranked for the ninth straight year as #1 in Category by Entrepreneur Magazine and named as the Top Global Franchise on the publication’s annual Franchise 500 list, JAN-PRO is now building on its North American dominance as it pioneers new avenues for growth worldwide.
With strong unit level economics based on a master franchise and unit franchisee business model JAN-PRO has solidified its position as the leader in the industry. JAN-PRO’s 140 Regional and Country Master Franchisees now represent more than 8,000 total units around the globe, with the brand serving over 40,000 customers in 14 different countries. With additional master international development agreements now under negotiation, the numbers are only expected to grow.
“Our international development success has been built on a business model that’s created more than 25 years of growth across the U.S.,” said Eddie Curry, President and CEO of Premium Franchise Brands, parent company of JAN-PRO. “Our dedicated master franchisees have helped to cement JAN-PRO as the unquestioned leader in commercial cleaning and have put the brand in position to leverage that success in new key markets around the globe.”
JAN-PRO has utilized that momentum to sign on key international markets including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and India, continuing record-breaking global growth from the previous year in strong new markets like the Dominican Republic. With additional territories still open across the globe, JAN-PRO is actively targeting new areas for development in the second half of 2017, including locations in Latin America, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia.
“By capitalizing on the incredible master-unit business model we’ve created, JAN-PRO is able to grow into new markets faster than the competition and show quick return on investment through strong average unit volume sales,” said Scott Thompson, Vice President of Franchise Development at Premium Franchise Brands. “With our proven support system and our strong brand awareness, owners who sign on to develop the JAN-PRO brand are set up for rapid success, whether their market is here in the U.S. or halfway around the world.”
The ambitious new push for international growth is backed by recent additions to JAN-PRO’s already strong leadership team, including Ted Asbury as Senior Vice President of Marketing and Holly Whalen as Director of Brand Marketing. Asbury’s strong marketing background was honed through franchise giants like The Honey Baked Ham Company and Arby’s. Whalen’s tenures include positions as Director of Marketing for brands like Living on the Edge and Harley-Davidson.
“We are excited to have both Ted and Holly’s expertise and diversified experience helping to drive JAN-PRO’s growth to an even higher level,” said Curry. “We have already taken significant steps forward as a brand in global growth, and this even stronger leadership team will help accelerate that even faster. With momentum on our side, JAN-PRO is positioned to dominate the industry worldwide for decades to come.”
JAN-PRO International was founded in 1991 in Providence, Rhode Island, to offer the highest-quality cleaning techniques and systems available to offices and commercial and healthcare facilities. JAN-PRO’s global network of thousands of unit and master franchisees serves more than 40,000 customers in 8000+ units and 14 countries. The Alpharetta, Georgia-based company, a subsidiary of Premium Franchise Brands, was recognized with the No. 1 ranking for global commercial cleaners in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2015, 2016 and 2017 “Franchise 500.” The brand was also recognized as #2 in Entrepreneur's "2017 Fastest Growing Franchises."
