Jani-King fights its royal battle with mop and broom. The company, which has more than 12,000 franchised businesses around the world, offers commercial cleaning services to office buildings, hotels, manufacturing facilities, health care institutions, restaurants, universities, and sport arenas. Services include general cleaning, floor care, carpet care, trash disposal, and window washing, as well as outsourced hotel guest room cleaning, laundry service, event venue cleaning, porter services, and post-construction clean-up. Jani-King operates through 120 offices. The company was founded in 1969 by Jim Cavanaugh, who created the company studying at The University of Oklahoma.
The company has weathered the economic storm relatively unscathed due to its unique role in the business-to-business market; though most businesses are looking for ways to reduce operating costs, offices always need to be cleaned.
Although most of the Jani-King's franchise locations are in the US, the brand has an international presence with operations in more than 15 countries.
