Financial Assistance: The franchisor may finance a portion of the Initial Franchise Fee for qualified franchisees.

Training and Assistance: Jan-Pro will provide franchisees with a comprehensive initial training program.

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.
