TAMPA, Fla. – The United Soccer League announced today it has entered a multi-year partnership with Jani-King International, which will make one of the world’s largest commercial cleaning franchise companies the Official Commercial Cleaning Services Supplier for all related properties, including the USL Championship – the pinnacle of competition – USL League One (formerly USL Division III), USL League Two (formerly the Premier Development League) and the Super Y League. Jani-King becomes the latest member of the USL’s Preferred Supplier Program, which has grown rapidly alongside the league to provide high-caliber services to the league and its clubs.
Jani-King has more than 9,000 franchisees in 10 countries and delivers a superior commercial cleaning program to a wide range of locations, including office buildings, hospitals, hotels, sporting venues, universities, restaurants and much more.
“We are thrilled to bring on Jani-King as the newest member of the Preferred Supplier Program,” said USL President Jake Edwards. “Jani-King has spent decades providing services for venues throughout the sports world, consistently ranked as a top performer among commercial cleaning businesses. With a vast network of support offices and franchise owners, Jani-King has the scope to serve USL venues across the country. The company will be a massive resource to our clubs as we continue to fill these stadiums with fans and events.”
The USL will oversee the expansion of an estimated 30–40 new franchises at the second and third divisions of professional soccer over the next five years, which will create opportunities for potential suppliers and vendors to support this growth.
Through its Preferred Supplier Program, the USL connects suppliers with new franchise owners and existing USL clubs in order to deliver the best possible experience for fans across North America. Preferred suppliers are “Best in Class” companies that provide services and products to professional franchises and stadium developers and must meet the USL’s strict quality standards. The USL is currently in discussions with suppliers that support stadium development, as well as the buildout of team front offices and operations.
