Jani-King Ranked No. 1 for 2005
Entrepreneur magazine has ranked Jani-King the #1 Commercial Cleaning Franchise
in its annual ranking of 500 franchise companies. This is the eighteenth time
that Jani-King has secured this prestigious title.
In addition, Jani-King has moved up to 7th position among the top-10
Franchise Companies in the world. These rankings are even more impressive when
compared to other franchise companies listed inside the Top 10 including Subway,
The UPS Store, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service and other well respected brands.
“I really have to credit the people in our regional offices,” says Jani-King
President Jerry Crawford. “We are excited about the opportunities in front of us
and we are proud to have so many quality people working to keep Jani-King on top
year after year.”
As part of the annual ranking, Jani-King has also retained its top spot as
the #1 Homebased Franchise and is ranked the #3 Low-cost Franchise and the #7
Fastest Growing Franchise for 2005.
Entrepreneur considers numerous factors in their ranking, some of which are
weighed more heavily than others. The most important ones include financial
strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. The magazine also
considers the number of years in business and length of time franchising,
start-up costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company
provides financing. Financial data was audited by an independent CPA firm. Every
company with verifiable data receives a cumulative score. The franchises with
the highest “cumes” become the Franchise 500.
