Jan-Pro plans Brazil expansion

Commercial cleaning franchise Jan-Pro is planning to expand its business in Brazil to a network of over 2,000 franchise owners by 2014.

As part of this plan the company, which launched its brand in Brazil in June last year, is aiming to open a minimum of six additional regional offices in the country this year alone. Half of these offices will be in the State of Sao Paulo, while the other half will be in the northeast.

Bernard Jeger, Master Franchise Owner of Jan-Pro Brazil, said: “Since we established the Jan-Pro brand in the Brazilian marketplace, we have received well over 350 prospects interested in opening a Jan-Pro business in the area. Jan-Pro is recognised as a leader in commercial cleaning, and the industry is growing very rapidly in Brazil. We are confident that demand will continue to show strong growth for years to come.”

Dennis Thompson, Vice President of Jan-Pro, added: “Within 10 years, Jan-Pro’s Brazilian presence in commercial cleaning will be at the top of the list globally. We are very excited to release our goal of over 2,000 Jan-Pro franchise owners in Brazil by 2014, and we feel it is a goal that is going to turn into a reality.”
