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

Franchise Offer: The franchisor, Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc., has developed a system to independently own and operate a comprehensive cleaning and maintenance business that performs commercial janitorial and related services under the service mark Jan-Pro and other trademarks, trade names, service marks, slogans and logos that it may authorize from time to time.

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 financing for any other purpose. In addition, to provide support to past veterans and current veterans who are being released from active service, Jan-Pro offers all qualifying veterans 50% financing of the Initial Franchise Fee for all Initial Plans FP 20 and above.

Training and Assistance: Jan-Pro will provide franchisees with a comprehensive initial training program. Franchisees may request personal consultations, which will be provided if the franchisor can reasonably accommodate. From time to time throughout the term, the franchisor may train, retrain, and introduce new methods and materials through personal consultations and group seminars. The franchisor may consult with franchisees on business and operational problems. Jan-Pro will help franchisees bid and negotiate cleaning services contracts if the franchisee requests. If requested, the franchisee must pay a negotiation fee. The franchisor will conduct annual advanced certification training.

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 manager must devote his or her best efforts to managing and operating the franchised business. The manager is the franchise owner, unless the franchisor otherwise agrees in writing. Franchisees may sell only goods and services approved by Jan-Pro. Franchisees must sell all goods and services Jan-Pro authorizes.
