Jani-King attracts entrepreneurs from many different backgrounds and there are many reasons a person decides to become a Jani-King franchise owner. One encouraging aspect of Jani-King’s industry niche and business model is the opportunity extended to traditionally underserved populations. That means anyone in El Paso with the interest and determination can own a successful and thriving Jani-King franchise. They’re not passed up if they lack a college degree, if they came from another place, or if English is their second language. Other industries in the United States are more difficult to enter if one of these criteria exists.
Jani-King’s opportunities are far more accessible for anyone with a dream to succeed in business. Here are a few ways Jani-King doors to success are easier to walk through.
Skills Can be Learned
Some professions, for good reason, require many years of education and college degrees of different levels. For some people, life circumstances just didn’t allow for that kind of time to be dedicated toward higher-level academics. But someone with little or no college coursework can flourish as a Jani-King franchise owner because they can get the training they need within Jani-King’s thorough and efficient training program. Using 45 years of experience, Jani-King’s training program cuts to the critical indicators for success, and also prepares business owners to handle many of the variables they’ll likely encounter in the field. It doesn’t take four years to become fully equipped to serve customers. Additionally, new franchisees can rely on Jani-King’s wealth of experience and resources for support along the way as they grow their book of business. Similar to a doctor’s residency, but without the student debt, franchisees are constantly developing their expertise on the job, even after their in-person training comes to an end.
If you’ve ever had the unpleasant experience of being judged unfairly for your academic stature, you know it can be pretty demoralizing. Rest assured that when you begin work as a new Jani-King franchisee, you’re joining a group of genuine, encouraging, and humble business owners. You simply won’t see that divisive attitude in the Jani-King ranks because it doesn’t exist.
Jani-King franchisees enter a level playing field where entrepreneurs of all backgrounds start on the same level in Jani-King training. Everyone learns the basics of the Jani-King way. Some franchisees arrive at Jani-King with multiple degrees, having worked in complex and demanding industries, but they’ve made the choice to start a new business with Jani-King for its many quality of life benefits. Some franchisees arrive because Jani-King is the clearest option for their family to forge a new path to the American Dream. It’s not how you get to Jani-King, it’s what you do with the opportunity that matters. We’re 100% in your corner to help you develop the skills needed to succeed.

Diverse Backgrounds Wanted
El Paso is home to over 200,000 immigrants and make up 25.9% of the Metro population. Did you know that more immigrants start businesses in the United States than US-born citizens? New American Economy’s data shows one in five US entrepreneurs is an immigrant. And their businesses employed 1 in 10 Americans in 2010. Jani-King knows the power that people from diverse backgrounds can bring to the Jani-King brand and to the economic communities they serve.
There’s an essence of courage, drive, and determination in people that come to the United States by choice. It takes a strong person to leave a homeland behind and venture into a new country with different customs and laws. New Americans have already succeeded at meeting a huge life goal! The skills to pull that off include risk management, hard work, planning, problem solving, tenacity, and creativity. By the time you walk in the Jani-King doors, these skills are sharpened like fine blades! Immigrants are primed for successfully owning a business.
New Americans have fewer “outs” on which to hang their business failures. Because they truly cherish their new home, there is no option to leave because their business didn’t work out. New Americans make it work. They use every resource they have and do the work necessary to bring about success as the only acceptable outcome. Jani-King’s immigrant franchise owners are among the most inspiring and motivating of our team in El Paso and across the United States.
Jani-King offers new Americans an opportunity at a faster way to establish financial stability and prosperity, while other roads can take much longer. Even if an immigrant arrives with some type of certified education, it doesn’t always transfer over to the United States, at least not without going through a lengthy and expensive testing and approval process. Not so with Jani-King. Jani-King’s brand name, training, and business development support come with a more affordable buy-in than other franchise options.
Strategically speaking, first year business revenue could trend higher in 2021. The need for commercial cleaning and disinfection is at an all time high as the COVID-19 Pandemic has increased the demand for frequent facility maintenance. This means new business owners can start with higher paying clients than if they’d started prior to the pandemic with clients that didn’t need services as frequently or as thoroughly as they do now. That’s good for new Americans, as well as others that join the Jani-King ranks this year.
So, if you’re looking for a way to start a new and prosperous chapter for yourself and your family, don’t let self-doubt hold you back. Jani-King looks beyond a person’s formal education and country of origin to the authentic value you bring to the marketplace. And you should too!
