JAN-PRO of Omaha is more than a commercial cleaning enterprise; it is an incubator of opportunity: “We sell franchises to people to become business owners, and we acquire clients to give to our business owners,” says Tumi Oluyole, President, JAN-PRO of Omaha.

A part of the Omaha business community since 2003, JAN-PRO has built its reputation on breakthrough cleaning technologies and people who take pride in their work.

“Our motivation for doing what we do is to see the success our franchise owners get from owning their own business,” Oluyole says. “At JAN-PRO, we do not limit your opportunities for growth. There is literally no cap; you can grow to be as big as you wish. Take care of your customers, follow the JAN-PRO model, and good things always happen.”

We believe in going the extra mile for our partners, and if it requires us going out of our way to ensure their complete satisfaction, we do not hesitate to make sure that is done.” 

  • Empowering Employees and Creating a Culture in which They Can Grow and Succeed

“Our company has a culture of transparency. We have constructive, timely and candid feedback to help boost employee and team performance. … We’ve found that one of the best ways to manage and keep our employees motivated is through benefits: outside training, community events, happy hours, and reimbursement for some approved company events. We give our employees goals and ownership. We set clear goals for teamwork and hold them accountable for completing task. In addition, we break the things we try to teach our employees into two groups – one is the strategy and direction of the business, the other is the set of skills they need to be successful. We believe that regular communication and training is really important, because both of these topics are moving targets.”
