Frequently Asked Questions
Is prior experience necessary?
No, for Local Franchise applicants we expect you to be customer service oriented and have a strong desire to succeed in your own business. For Master Franchise candidates experience in sales, marketing or management can build your territory at a faster pace. However, for both programs JDI provides extensive training to help you succeed.
Does JDI provide financial assistance?
JDI will assist you in submitting a favorable application for financing from a recognized lending institution, should that be necessary. JDI does provide limited in-house financing for qualified candidates.
How are the cleaning contracts billed and collected?
JDI, through its Home Office or Regional Office, directly bills and collects all contract receivables for the franchisees. This way you are assured of on time billing and efficient collection of your monies. The benefit is increased cash flow, accurate record keeping, and the detailed reports you will need to make successful business decisions. This allows more time to work on your business.
Do I purchase supplies from JDI?
No. JDI has negotiated discounted pricing from local suppliers, which allows you to buy with confidence. You are free to source your own suppliers as well, as long as the products they sell are of similar quality and comply with our CleanGreen Program.
How much working capital will I need?
Local franchisees should have a minimum of six months working capital at their disposal. Master franchisees should have six to twelve months working capital for their use. Working capital will assist you in the early stage development of your new franchise.
What can I expect from the JDI training program?
JDI Home Office provides you with an extensive training program that covers industry specific knowledge, sales, customer service and management programs. As well, each franchisee is taught the practical side of running a franchise including efficient cleaning techniques, CleanGreen training, safety on the job, the proper use and maintenance of equipment and the proper use of cleaning chemicals. This training is ongoing.
