History


1960's


1960’s

In 1968, Jani-King’s founder began marketing janitorial services during the day then servicing those clients at night. Less than a year later, in 1969, he established Jani-King and began pioneering the concept that has kept the company at the top of its industry. From its humble beginnings to today’s status as the world’s largest commercial cleaning franchise company, the Jani-King empire was built on hard work and the realization that a world of opportunity existed for a commercial cleaning franchising company.

During the early 1970s, Jani-King became a franchise company unlike any other. In 1974, the company began applying it’s winning franchise concept— a concept in which Jani-King obtains commercial cleaning accounts and offers the Franchisee an initial customer base to service. In 1976, as the company grew, Jani-King moved it’s headquarters from Oklahoma to Dallas, Texas.
