When searching for a way to move back to Utah, husband and wife team, Robert and Sydnee Evans discovered JaniKing, the largest commercial cleaning franchise in the world, and bought the master franchise for Utah. Now, 25 years later, they’re supporting 53 franchise owners who are part of their JaniKing operation, which extends throughout the state and into neighboring states as well.

Their specialty with JaniKing is commercial cleaning services, and Sydnee says they service approximately 25 percent of all high rises in Utah, with one of the highest retention rates in the industry. For some of these buildings, they’ve been the commercial cleaning service on board since the building was built. They’ve also established partnerships with many property management companies in the state and often clean new buildings and apartment complexes following construction.

In addition to cleaning services, the Evans love having the opportunity to support other small business owners with JaniKing. This is important since small business represents 99 percent of all U.S. employer firms. Theses franchisees include everyone from young entrepreneurs to retirees, and some people discover they love the work so much, they decided to build their part-time business into a successful full-time operation.
