"I was 17 years old when my father Dave Hughes started JAN-PRO of Arkansas. I remember cleaning the first account at the YMCA because there were no unit franchisees at the time. I went off to college and had my own career in logistics before coming back to JAN-PRO Franchise Development in 2018. There were 60 franchisees servicing roughly 400 customers around central Arkansas when I arrived. In 2019, we opened the Northwest Arkansas office and expanded our footprint. Now in 2022, we have 127 franchisees servicing roughly 700 customers throughout Arkansas. I really fell in love with JAN-PRO Franchise Development and helping these entrepreneurs get started in the janitorial industry.
The recent Southwest Missouri expansion allows us to continue our mission and promote from within. We will promote a current employee as she relocates to assume the Director of Operations role. We have always been able to promote from within and use my office as the training and culture development hub. My people really get what we are trying to accomplish and expanding that vision is a true blessing."

“Tony and I could not be more excited about the opportunity to grow the legacy of Phoenix and could not be more appreciative of Sandy’s team, Boathouse Capital and JPSI’s work and dedication in helping to facilitate a smooth and seamless transition. This was truly a team effort, and we are excited to grow the brand and be a good partner in helping JAN-PRO Cleaning & Disinfecting be the industry leader.”

"People are what makes the JAN-PRO franchise special. When I was determining whether to stay in the military or not, I reached out to multiple Franchise Developers around where I lived at the time as well as the founder, Jacques Lapointe. They all were more than welcoming and helpful, and I could quickly tell that JAN-PRO was a family in addition to a business. Even after I became a Regional Developer, I have continued to reach out to the other Regional Developers for help and support, and not even one has given me anything less than their full attention and help."
