Top “F” Reasons It’s Great to Be Your Own Boss

top-5-reasons-to-be-your-own-boss-1We’ve all heard the phrase “it’s good to be the King.”
That’s because as the boss, you get to enjoy the rewards of your own decisions and hard work. If this sounds like a role that fits you, take a look at these reasons many people choose to start their own business …
► Flexibility.
Being the one in charge comes with the ability to work when you want. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can get away with working just a few hours a week. After all, someone is likely still counting on you to pay the bills. But it does mean that you can create a work schedule that fits into your life schedule. Maybe you need to get the kids to school in the morning or get yourself to class at night. Whatever you’ve got going on can fit into the mix when you’re calling the shots.
► Family.
This is something we hear more and more as the reason for wanting to be a business owner. Whether you’re looking for an opportunity to spend more time with your family or create a business to pass on to your kids, family is a top priority with entrepreneurs everywhere.
► Finances.
It’s no secret that owning your own business is one of the best formulas for financial independence. As an employee, you may be the hardest worker, but at some point you are tapped out on how much money you can make in the company. But when you own the company, revenue opportunities are endless. Give yourself a “raise” whenever you want by signing new clients, maximizing profits and managing your business like a pro. The opportunities don’t stop when you’re the owner, because you decide your financial goals and put a plan in place to make it happen.
► Freedom.
Imagine being able to take vacation whenever you want. Imagine working in the morning and using the afternoon to go golfing, without having to ask for permission. That’s the freedom of business ownership. When you run a successful business, you have the freedom to do the things you want to do, when you want to do them. Work when you need to, and enjoy the freedom to take-off too.
► Franchise.
Starting your own business is a whole lot easier thanks to franchise opportunities. These companies have already developed proven strategies, business practices, and systems for success. From training to support to customers, franchise companies get you going and support you for the long-run. Look for a franchise company that has been in business for a long time and has a track-record of success. Also, choose a stable industry such as commercial cleaning. This is an industry that is in constant demand, offering cleaning services that all businesses need each and every day. A new, trendy franchise concept may look appealing, but trends do fade. Choose a business that fits your needs and has the potential to create long-term success.Interested in learning more, or ready to take the next steps?

Winning Advice for All Franchisees

jani0king-crown-clubEach month, we are proud to present Jani-King’s Crown Club Winner, the franchise owner who signs the largest amount of new business in the previous month. But just how do they do it? From outstanding customer service to accurate account bidding, Jani-King franchisees must be at the top of their game to beat out the competition and earn new business. This month’s Crown Club winners, Shawn and Carrie Huget from Lafayette/Lake Charles, LA, give us their best advice for signing new accounts and growing their Jani-King franchise.

Five Key Tips for Signing New Business:

1. Relationships; building relationships is key in selling accounts. The customer has to know and trust you.
2. Persistence; sometimes, making the sale takes a long time. Don’t give up. Keep at it, keep visiting, keep strengthening that relationship.
3. Referrals; referrals are extremely valuable. Have your current customers help you grow. Ask them for a letter of recommendation.
4. Industry knowledge; know what you’re selling. Be able to answer questions customers may have.
5. Good attitude; this is probably the most important attribute. A smile and a nice word take you a long way.

Congratulations to Shawn and Carrie Huget, this month’s Jani-King Crown Club Winners!

Jani-King Eugene Olympic Trials Event Cleaning Success

jani-king-eugene-salemThe Rio 2016 Olympics have now come to a close and we are so excited and proud to see great things from the USA Olympic Track and Field team. We are very proud to have been able to be behind the scenes as the event janitorial provider at the Trials to select the team that represented us in Brazil.  Jani-King Oregon would like to personally thank AA Environmental, Inc., one of our fabulous Jani-King of Eugene-Salem franchises, for another successful Track & Field Olympic Trials. TrackTown16 was a great success for Jani-King as a whole because of the outstanding commercial cleaning service and support Ed and Michelle Powell provided to The University of Oregon, Track Town Events, and Nike.

This year was unlike 2008 and 2012 because of the additional events that were happening in Eugene that AA Environmental also were providing cleaning services for at the same time. During the 10-day Olympic Trial event they also serviced 5 Eugene Emerald home games at PK Park, 2 concerts at the Cuthbert Amphitheater, 2 events at the Club Level in Autzen Stadium, a youth volleyball camp at Matthew Knight Arena, and a Kiss Concert at Matthew Knight Arena which ended in shooting confetti cannons with 150 lbs. of confetti inside the arena.

Thousands of hours were worked by their employees over the 10-day stretch and every event ended successfully. Those involved with the event were so happy with the service they would like Jani-King to provide service for other events they have in the Portland area.

The Jani-King brand, as a whole, is much stronger in Oregon after the great service you provided. We love our franchisees and are so thankful for the work you all do; you make Jani-King who we are!

If you are interested in starting a Jani-King Franchise in Oregon, we would love to hear from you and discuss our flexible and affordable options.

Jani-King Kicks-off 2016 Partnership with Spruce Meadows

This year marks our second annual partnership with the world-renowned Spruce Meadows.   Located in Calgary, the picturesque grounds of Spruce Meadows make it a leading venue in the world for international horse sports and special functions.

JKSAB_SpruceMeadowsWhen the “doors” opened more than 40 years ago, it was the dream of the Southern Family to create a unique environment of good friendship, good commerce, and good sport. Over the years, Spruce Meadows has attracted a committed group of corporations, volunteers, media, athletes, staff, and fans who have made this dream a reality!

Jani-King is excited to be The Official Cleaning Partner of Spruce Meadows for the second year in a row. “Spruce Meadows and the Southern Family are an integral part of our community,” says Will Forseth, Regional Director for Jani-King of Southern Alberta.  “This is our second year as a supporter and partner, and we look forward to the 2016 season. Everything from the high level of sportsmanship to the camaraderie that takes place on its grounds makes us very proud to be involved with this phenomenal facility.”

Self-Driven and Growing

James-Avrose-Martin-Jr-300x256When asked what makes him successful, James Avrose Martin, this month’s Crown Club Winner from the Greenville-Spartanburg region, didn’t hesitate to say that his own ‘innerdrive’ is the key.
With a brand new account & the Crown Club honors under his belt, it’s hard to dismiss that philosophy.
“The new account is in Westminster, SC, which is about an hour northeast of Greenville,” said Martin. “I had built a relationship with a gentleman that worked there and when they decided to go out for bid, he thought of me and my Jani-King franchise. With the help of the regional office, I was able to measure and propose a competitive, winning bid.”
Martin invested in his Jani-King franchise in 2013, learning of the opportunity through a friend who was also a Jani-King franchisee. While Martin hit the ground running, cleaning accounts by himself at the beginning, it wasn’t long before he built up a staff of 11 workers. Now, Martin sees a bright future by retaining customers and setting his sights on more large accounts.
As for how he plans to retain accounts and grow his business, Martin sticks to the same philosophy as many of our previous Crown Club winners; “the customer is always right,” exclaims Martin.
Martin also believes in the everyday support of the regional office and says that the biggest benefit to his Jani-King franchise is the flexibility of being a business owner.
