Jani King GB scam

I had a very bad experience with Jani King GB in 2010 and would like to warn others against buying this franchise. They completely mis sell the franchise and leave no scope to make any profit. This is already a competitive marketplace and they take any profit you work hard to make. I am looking for other current or former franchisees that are unhappy with Jani King GB and their bad practise to contact me as together maybe we can challange them, claim some of our losses back and make others aware of this blatant scam. email me at franchiseeunhappy@***.co.uk

Jani-King is the biggest of the big time franchise scams! I know.

You'll never make enough money to justify the investment. It's designed that way!

Jani King are exploiting staff, this is a scam

Jani King are Scam, they get cleaning staff together uses them for contract and don't pay wages, when you call the payroll no one seems to answer you, the system should be queried and brought to justice. the situation in the country should not give room for this kind of company to operate, it is extremely unjust to work for 45 to 46 days before getting payed, this is a system Jani King is using on people. I think if this rip off continues. when you call the managers they dont respond or answer your queries, this is a scam

They will exploit and rip you off!. They are struggling as they have lost so many customers and franchisees because they are crooks.

The HO is run by a small team whose sole role is to exploit anyone who they can. BE WARNED but FIGHT back!

If you do not get paid go straight to Citizen Advice and take action! It will work!


My daughter worked there and is owed £100 and I call and email and have not got this resolved they seem not to have had the timesheets come across to payroll

My daughter is 16 and is deeply upset

my sister was left stranded in london over 85 miles away from home as janiking took her transport and left her with no money to get home. they are a complete joke and no wonder their managers earn so much money it is fiddled from the workers. janiking should be stoped and closed downASAP


i agree me and my friends work for jani king at the moment we are now having to seek advice as we are not getting paid and when we do it's below minimum wage we don't receive wage slips and we are being told we will be sent wage slips when he is good and ready to send them my advice stay well away we will be leaving very shortly just waiting on our case

I had a JK franchise and agree with the complaints on this page. I am trying to gather all complaints to take it to a lawyer to make JK pay. Please email me at franchiseeunhappy@***.co.uk


I can only warn off any people looking to work for Jani King in the UK. The company is a complete joke.

They do not pay any wages and when you call to request the payment, they hang up on you or promise to call back the next day, which of course never happens. Avoid working at this compay at all costs, especially in the Kingston and Wimbledon areas as you will not get paid!
