If your path has led you to consider partnering with a successful company as a franchisee, you are no doubt faced with many options. There is such a wide range of industries you could tap into, so how do you choose the right one? The key is landing in an industry that offers longevity and stability; an industry that instead of being demolished by technology and innovation, uses them to grow. The commercial cleaning industry is one of them, and owning janitorial franchise could be the perfect fit for you.
Becoming the new owner of a janitorial franchise is much less risky than you might think. According to industry figures, the U.S. cleaning industry will continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the economy for the next decade, reaching well over $100 billion in revenues; and a chunk of that could be yours. In fact, many economists consider the cleaning industry to be recession-proof in such a turbulent economy, and The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that a professional cleaning specialist will be the fastest growing occupation in the next decade.
Joining in on something that’s already successful is big part of what will set you up for your own success; but how do you know what to look for in a janitorial franchise? One way to evaluate a company is researching its way of doing business—its practices and its reputation. Is the company respected in its industry and in communities it serves? Where does it stand in comparison to other franchises? Is it expanding into new markets? Does it offer thorough training and support? Who does it count as clients and partners? These questions and more are important for potential janitorial franchisees to consider.
As long as there are businesses and the structures in which they thrive, there will be the need for someone to clean them. For that reason, well-run janitorial franchises provide stability for people just like you. It’s a big move, but the decision to take part in a janitorial franchise could protect you and your family for years to come. Jani-King’s team can help you build a better future.
