Please Do not buy a Franchise with this company of Augusta, GA. They promise you things and don't stand up to it. From a friend of mine they lost a lot of money with these people. This company is nothing but a scam and give people jobs that not worth working. The list of numbers they give you to call sometimes don't be the right numbers to other franchisee.Basicially, Jan-pro(Franchisor), is like a general contractor, who gets you accounts to clean for anything from $200.00 dollars a month to $1000.00 and up, ( alot of under bidding goes on as well)you the franchisee(self contractor)goes out and cleans the under bid account(s) for much less then you think you are getting paid, first off jan-pro charges a big percentage for royalities, insurance, management fees, etc...(trust me they don't manage nothing)

also, since you are basically a self-contractor, when you receive your check no taxes are taken out just jan-pro's cut, so that way they send you a 1099 tax form at the end of the year, which means you have to pay a sh-t load of money for taxes, while they use you as a tax write off, also jan-pro has a form of modern day slavery going on...what I mean by that is if you worked the whole month of January, you wouldn't get paid until the end of febuary, and by then you would be getting utilities cut off, and you would be behind in bills, etc...

Also, even though they market that they grow your business for you they don't once you get your accounts that you signed up for they send you out a certified letter stating that they have 'FULFILLIED' their legal obligation..even if you lose some accounts, they still won't give you more accounts to replace those accounts, even if you lost them and it wasn't your fault.

Also let's say you think you are making $5000.00 a month, your nor, because they are taking their cut out, and ' uncles sam' will take his, remember that and if you do the math on that type of income you will owe the irs more than $10, 000 in taxes, even if you have all of your business receipts... IN A NUTSHELL, ... DO NOT INVEST IN A SO-CALLED COMMERCIAL CLEANING FRANCHISE...

you should have done your home work before getting into this. i know first hand that companies promise the world but i dont do anything with out first doing due diligence. of course if your making $5k a month that works out to be $60k a year. why wouldnt you pay 10, 000 in taxes your getting away scott free by paying so little. hey this is the U.S.A land of the free, and free enterprize. how ever none of it is free and all comes with a price...

good luck in anything you do.
