Jani-King Franchisee Hits Home Run with BB&T Ballpark
Jani-King of Greensboro, a master franchise regional office of Jani-King International, is excited to announce that local unit franchisee Tyrone Tyson was recently featured as the cover story in the August 2010 issue of Black Business Ink magazine, a business publication targeting the Greensboro, NC market.
Tyson, also a pastor at Freedom Baptist Church, looked to Jani-King when his former employer forced a schedule change that didn’t match his priorities.
“The new schedule interfered with church, that was the main factor, so I took a leap of faith,” he says. “I believe in God before I believe in any job.”
Initially, Tyson left his full-time job and took a position as a worker for a friend who owned a Jani-King franchise. Over the next year, Tyson picked up trash while gaining valuable insight into the commercial cleaning industry and Jani-King franchise opportunity.
Tyson purchased the Jani-King franchise from his short term employer two years ago. Less than a year later, his franchise was offered a janitorial account at the new BB&T Ballpark in downtown Winston-Salem. Since the beginning, Tyson has relied on the support of Jani-King’s regional office including bidding accounts such as the ballpark.
“That’s one of the good things about the Jani-King franchise. On many projects the regional office handles the bidding process,” Tyson says. “They provided the opportunity; all I had to do was be prepared to take advantage of it.”
