Business Description: Jan-Pro franchises are comprehensive cleaning and maintenance businesses that perform commercial, industrial, and institutional cleaning and maintenance services.

Financial Assistance: The franchisor may finance a portion of the Initial Franchise Fee for qualified franchisees. The franchisor may also finance a portion of the Sales and Marketing Fee if the franchisee accepts Additional Accounts from them. Financing is also available for equipment leases. Jan-Pro does not offer any other financing.

Training and Assistance: Jan-Pro will provide the Certification Program for up to 4 approved people for no charge, but may charge a reasonable fee for additional people that attend the Training Program. The Certification Program includes video, classroom, and on-site expert consultation. The franchisee must attend, or cause one of the managerial personnel (satisfactorily to the franchisor) to attend, and successfully complete the Certification Program as well as any other seminars, sessions, programs, consultations, and advanced instructional modules that the franchisor deems necessary. The franchisor may provide personal consultations, if the franchisor can reasonably accommodate. The franchisor may periodically introduce new methods and materials through personal consultations and group seminars.

Territory: The franchisee will not receive an exclusive territory. The franchisee may face competition from other franchisees, from outlets that the franchisor owns, or from other channels of distribution or competitive brands that the franchisor controls.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the franchise term is 10 years. If the franchisee satisfies the conditions in the Agreement, he or she may renew for two additional terms of 10 years each.

Obligations and Restrictions: The franchisor requires that franchisees have at least one person actively involved in the management of the franchise. The manager and managerial employees must sign the form of confidentiality and non-competition agreement. Franchisees must offer for sale all approved services and products; must refrain from deviating from the franchisor’s specifications for the approved services and products with the franchisor’s written consent; and must discontinue offering any services or products that it disapproves in writing.
