As the global leader in the commercial cleaning industry and the world’s largest commercial cleaning franchise company, Jani-King enjoys an enviable reputation.
At the very core of their success is their franchisees, the entrepreneurial individuals who recognise the fantastic opportunity Jani-King is able to provide. Two such examples are Alex Printie from Oxford and Desmond Osei-Akoto from Essex – both of whom have been performing well above their initial expectations!
No Commercial Cleaning Experience Necessary
Although Alex Printie had no previous experience of running his own business or the commercial cleaning industry, his varied career within the Army and subsequently telecommunications and leisure management, meant that he had developed excellent people management skills. His drive to establish and build his own business led him to explore the opportunities available to him and research which industries had the most potential.
As a sector with constant demand and solid opportunities for growth, Alex was quick to recognise the commercial cleaning industry as a strong prospective choice. He was also attracted to the franchise structure as a means of entering a competitive market place with minimal barriers to entry, such as low investment costs, high levels of support and guidance from an experienced team and the backing of an internationally recognised brand.
Alex More Than Doubles His Target Turnover
And Alex wasn’t wrong! Following meetings with Jani-King’s UK Regional Director Will Gavan, Alex took the decision to invest in a Plan 10 which under the Jani-King Guaranteed Business Promise, means that he was guaranteed to be offered contracts worth a monthly turnover of £10,000. We are delighted to report though that Alex has smashed this target and has achieved an actual monthly turnover of £24,000! He has achieved this by not only accepting the contracts offered by Jani-King, but also by proactively targeting and winning his own contracts.
Achieving Great Success At Your Own Pace
Desmond Osei-Akoto from Essex has enjoyed a similar level of success. He had previous experience of working as a cleaner but recognising the consistent and growing demand across a large number of commercial buildings, he wanted to progress his career by starting his own commercial cleaning business.
The training, support and knowledge provided by Jani-King gave Desmond the confidence he needed to take the first step into his bright future.
In order to gain confidence and develop his business skills, Desmond opted for a Plan 4, guaranteeing him £4,000 worth of monthly turnover from ready-signed contracts offered by Jani-King. But Desmond is currently hitting monthly turnover levels of over 4 times this amount at £17,000!
A Sound Investment in a Stable Industry
Both of our successful franchisees have been able to benefit from the far-reaching demand of commercial cleaning services and the invaluable training and support provided by us to be able to maximise on these opportunities.
The Jani-King model is a flexible opportunity which can be tailored to the needs and requirements of individuals and allow them to grow their own businesses at a rate that suits them.
