Thanks for the info Thickhead. I spoke with a few more franchisees yesterday. One really opened up my eyes as far as cost structure and labor costs. Thank you for your feedback as well. Based on the information that you have provided, and the information I have received from other franchisees, I am not going to purchase a Jani King franchise.
hAVE ANYONE WON AGAINST J.K. ARE THEIR ANY LAWYERS THAT HAS BEAT J.K.
IT SEEMS THAT EVERYONE IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH J.K. NOT GETTING SUPPORT WHEN THE CONTRACTS ARE GIVEN TO US IN BAD CONDITION AND THE UNDER BIDDING. IF EVERYBODY WITH A J.K FRANCHISE WORK TOGETHER MYBE IT COULD TRIGGER A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT
ALSO IF PEOPLE GO TO THE MEDIA AND EXPLOIT J.K IT MY BE THE ANSWER. I'AM PRETTY SURE THAT THOSE EXPENSIVE SPONSORS WOULD NOT LIKE TO BE PART OF A COMPANY THAT RIPS YOU OFF
Thanks for that, I might contact the newspaper for advice. As yet I haven't paid any money other than a small initial deposit (£1K) and training was to begin next year.
Thanks for your support, I will let you know how it goes.
Done. I hope this might help you.
I am interested in a Jani-King franchise and am gathering information. Are there any current Jani-King franchisee's that can share their experience, pro/cons, etc.? Any information you can provide in helping me make a decision is appreciated.
I currently have a Jani King franchise. The worst thing I ever did.
My franchise is out side the US. So I don't know what its like there.
The bottom line is I have been left with a bad taste in my mouth and before people say its sour grapes. I'm making a little money and only because I have had to fight Jani King for every cent. Jani King will undercut competion to obtain work, making it almost impossible to achive the sales lines they throw at you when you sign about making your business grow
I believe that Jani King is driven by pure greed. I cannot trust a single word from my Jani King regional manager.
I also believe that Jani King work on the basis of after two years they make life so difficult for the franchisee. They then at their wits end walk out of the franchise thus leaving Jani King free to sell it again.
If my details seem obscure its because I have a genuine fear of retribution from Jani King.
