Jan-Pro Cleaning Systems / Misleading and Fraudulent activity
There are a lot of complaints about Jan-Pro. If you've read any other complaints it indicates that they give you contracts to clean buildings, that are not even worth the pay; you're basically working for minimum wage and working triple to double the hours that you would if you just got a normal job. It's all true. And trust me, you won't feel like a business owner, they'll make you feel like you're a worthless worker.
They will offer you cleaning contracts but they will be so ridiculas, that you have to turn them down. If you're lucky enough to get a cleaning contract that's worth your time, it'll only a couple of years, because Jan-Pro collect royalties, not profits, it is in their economic interest to sell more franchises for a large fee and give your contract away. Nearing your aniverseray Jan-Pro will go out of their way to cause you to lose your contract. If that doesn't work than they'll entice the owner of the building by lowering their price and giving it to a new frachisee. Once your not cleaning any buldings for them anymore, then they will avoid all contacts with you. The receptionist will pick up your phone calls but will indicate that the person you are requesting is away and a international conferance and won't diclose to you when they'll be back. If you call back, in a couple a weeks...same story.
Now, if you know about the small business frachise act (SBFA) and you browse through the contract you signed with Jan-Pro, it's misleading and fraudulent, violating several things indicated in the SBFA
Jan-Pro isn't worth your money or time. You're better off investing your money somewhere else, especially if you're looking to invest long term.
