Commitment to Success
During her military career Monica Springfield advanced through the ranks, specializing in communications and receiving numerous medals for her contributions. But after 14 year of active duty in the United States Navy, Springfield wanted the opportunity to spend more time at home with her family and she knew exactly what she wanted to do in business; continue to be successful.
According to Springfield, the military instilled pride, professionalism and a can-do spirit in all her tasks, traits that are desired by many franchise companies when selecting new franchisees.
“My husband and I were initially attracted to Jani-King in early 1994 because of their established reputation in the cleaning industry and their high rankings in leading magazines,” said Springfield. “We were the third individuals to purchase a franchise in the Hampton Roads region since its opening and received our first Class A building to service in April of 1994. Nearly 20 years later, we still have that same account today. Throughout the years, we have obtained numerous accounts to service, we have been recognized as Franchisee of the Year a couple of times and we have earned numerous other awards.”
Jani-King’s success was built by individual franchisee successes and unmatched support programs. The company has more than 120 regional support offices around the world which provide training, education, administrative and operations assistance, equipment programs, technology updates and more. But most of all, the company thrives by selecting franchise owners like Springfield that understand what it takes to be successful.
“Dedication, customer satisfaction and hard work is what helps us in our success. We also rely greatly on the regional office for support and expertise, and they are awesome.”
Life with a parent or partner in the armed forces includes everyday challenges that most “civilian” families couldn’t even imagine. Extensive deployments force spouses to assume command at home. Frequent military relocations interrupt careers and derail educational goals.
To celebrate and support these unsung heroes, Kaplan University and The Washington Redskins have joined forces to create the Kaplan University—Washington Redskins Military Family Scholarship.
Launched early September to coincide with the start of the 2013 NFL season, the program offers scholarships covering up to 54% of tuition on any of Kaplan University’s undergraduate online degree programs.
Applicants must be the spouse or dependent of a United States servicemember, including members of the National Guard and Reserve. Family members of deceased servicemembers who served after September 11, 2001 are also eligible.
Kaplan University will also award a “traditional campus” scholarship for those who wish to attend class at our Hagerstown or Rockville, Maryland, locations.
Kaplan University is the Exclusive Higher Education Partner of The Washington Redskins. Program scholarships will be administered by Scholarship America.
