If you've been considering investing in a franchise, chances are you have probably asked yourself this question. It is a reasonable question because in certain categories of franchising, the problem is the ever-changing nature of consumer buying habits. What is a fad this year may not be next year. As the competition heats up and new consumer options open up, trends and fads can be damaging to your business investment over time.
Fads Come and Go — Commercial Cleaning Is Forever
The key difference between investing in a "fad" franchise and investing in a JAN-PRO franchise is, the commercial cleaning you manage will never go out of style. As long as there are businesses, there will always be the need to maintain them. This is why we often refer to our industry as being "recession resistant." Regardless of other economic pressures and consumer preferences, our industry, and JAN-PRO in particular, has thrived over the past decade. The Commercial cleaning industry is a US$100+ billion dollar industry and is projected to reach US$140 billion by the year 2008.
