Jan-Pro, a franchise-based commercial cleaning business recently celebrated its 20th year in Canada.
Jan-Pro International (JPI) was founded in 1991 in the United States by Jacques L. Lapointe, and established in Quebec City, Canada shortly after in 1995 by Jean Roberge.
Twenty years later, Jan-Pro is consistently listed as a top franchise system in multiple categories in Canada, including being listed as the #4 franchise in Canada this year. With 12 regional offices across Canada, the Jan-Pro franchise continues to grow.
“Being of French-Canadian heritage, the thought of having a Jan-Pro business in Canada was always a surreal idea,” said Jan-Pro founder Jacques Lapointe. “And here we are today celebrating that wonderful journey we started 20 years ago in Quebec City.”
With 900 franchisees, 4700 clients, and 85 employees across the country, Jan- Pro has been able to create and sustain substantial growth and financial stability. “Despite the recession in 2008-2009, we were able to grow our business by over 10%,” said Jean Roberge. “Jan-Pro has proven to be a recession resistant business model, and that has been one of the big reasons this business has been able to prosper for 20 years.”
