Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc. (Jan-Pro), an established global leader and top brand in advanced commercial cleaning, today graciously accepted the #1 Top Ranking on the list of the Top 100 Home Based Franchises for 2013 by Entrepreneur Magazine. In recognizing the efforts of its entire operation of over 11,000 franchisees, the company announced it was saluting Jan-Pro Master Owners, as well as Unit Franchisees for their 2013 achievements.
In its recently released 34th Annual Franchise Ranking List, Entrepreneur Magazine saluted the industries poised for growth. Winners were selected based on financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. Important factors also include number of years of being in business, the length of time the company has been franchising, startup costs, percentage of terminations, and if financing is provided. With over 20 years experience, and having a strong system of over 10,000 franchisees, Jan-Pro met all qualifications, and was selected as the
#1 Home Based Franchise of the Year.
“We are honored to be named #1 in this prestigious list of leading franchises for 2013,” said Rich Kissane, Jan-Pro President & CEO. “Being named the best is an achievement we share with each and every one of our 11,000 franchisees. They are what makes the Jan-Pro brand what it is today.”
To that end, Jan-Pro recognized outstanding franchisees and their achievements with top honors. Three Jan-Pro Master Office of the Year Awards were awarded, based on market size, for performance, while 6 Unit franchisees were honored for their business growth and unmatched representation of Jan-Pro’s ideals.
Among the winners were:

“Charity is extremely unselfish with her time, and always doing what she can to assist other franchise owners in the growth of their business,” said Brad Rush. “Charity is not only passionate about her business, but about Jan-Pro of Atlanta, and Jan-Pro International.”
