Jani-King Franchisee Business Owner Lawyer

Jani-King has long franchised their commercial cleaning services to aspiring business owners looking for the opportunity to provide a better living for themselves and their families. The company markets the opportunity to become a franchisee business owner as a lucrative endeavor with a payoff worth the costly expense of buying a franchise. However, extensive investigations into the company’s questionable business practices revealed that the cleaning service often takes advantage of hardworking citizens’ hopes for a better life by profiting off their labor without fulfilling their promise of a fruitful payoff to the franchisee business owner.

This “bait and switch” style business practice hurts many franchisee owners by giving them false promises of a worthwhile opportunity and reasonable profit. Jani-King advertises what potential franchisees perceive as a good deal, but leave business owners feeling duped once they realize they won’t be making as much money as Jani-King marketed. At the Leichter Law Firm PC, we believe Jani-King’s franchisee business owners were the victims of fraudulent practices that coax vulnerable citizens into spending their savings on what they believe is a good investment, but later becomes a financial hardship. Our legal team believes those encouraged to start a Jani-King franchise may be entitled to monetary damages because of these practices.

Questionable Business Practices

Jani-King’s business plan involves assigning customers to select franchisee owners. While the franchisee owner performs the janitorial service and provides the labor, the money paid by the customer goes to Jani-King. After the deduction of royalty fees, advertising fees, finder’s fees, technology fees, and service fees, the business owner receives the amount left over. However, Jani-King routinely takes back customer accounts and reassigns them to other franchisees, shrinking the business owner’s customer base and negatively affecting their business.
