North Carolina Military Veteran Becomes JAN-PRO Business Owner
After serving 26 years in the military, Walter London and his family, made a decision to go into business for themselves. After evaluating various franchise models and home-based business opportunities, the London’s invested in a home-based business with JAN-PRO of Raleigh, owned by Moe and Sean Hassan.
Walter is one of 800,000 military veterans who call North Carolina home. He retired from Fort Bragg’s airborne division where his training and experience aligned perfectly with the leadership skills he would need to own a JAN-PRO business.
Fort Bragg is one of the largest U.S. Army installations in the world and it is not an exaggeration to say that some of the best trained people retire from Fort Bragg with so much to offer the business world.
Walter says his “white glove” approach to cleaning is half of what you need to succeed, and the other half is the support and training that JAN-PRO provides to new business owners.
Walter’s customer service philosophy is that customers are not looking for okay service. They are looking for outstanding service. He believes that this way of thinking is what sets him and JAN-PRO apart from other commercial cleaning services.
At the start, JAN-PRO owners are extensively trained to service various industries including, medical facilities, corporate offices, and schools. Operating a JAN-PRO business means providing cleaning expertise specific to the industry as well as superior customer service. With Walter’s military experience, this level of responsibility and service are second nature.
Walter is passionate about running his own JAN-PRO franchise business. He gets the operational support, such as access to new commercial cleaning technologies and products, and he has the flexibility to build his own business too. It’s a win-win opportunity for anyone looking to start their own business.
