Jerry Silveira, Regional Director of Jani-King of Eastern Ontario, and his team held an event May 31.st Franchisees received training, networked with other people in the system, and learned about the latest products.
The day began with a warm welcome and introductions from Jerry and Amber Ferguson. Wenda Westendorp, Director of System Development at Jani-King Canada, was the first guest speaker of the day. Wenda gave an informative speech on OH&S and WSIB (incident reports), and provided an update on Jani-King activities.
