As we publicize the truth about the predatory JDog Junk Hauling franchise failure rate, deceptive marketing and devastating consequences on military veterans and families, those who have enjoyed years of fat commissions and easy revenue will undoubtedly go scurrying for cover. Has the scurrying begun? by Sean Kelly
A rumor is swirling that Bancorp is no longer willing to provide funding to JDog Junk Removal & Hauling or JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care franchise owners.
It’s also rumored that Interstate Fleets of Colmar, PA will be breaking ties with JDog Franchises LLC as a funding provider and provider of used JDog vehicles.
These are rumors, mind you… we anxiously await confirmation or clarification…
It’s rumored that JDog Franchises LLC is reportedly scrambling to find an alternative lender for JDog franchisee vehicles.
(We will likely not get a response from the tongue-tied management down in Berwyn, PA)
According to an anonymous source, these vendors dropped JDog due to the high franchisee turnover and failure rate as reported here on UnhappyFranchisee.Com.
Sources tell us that, if true, the lack of funding options could dramatically affect JDog’s ability to sell and launch its high-risk franchises.
JDog franchisees, who have been increasingly critical of the franchisor’s unwillingness to constructively respond to complaints or to respond to our reports, are dismayed that neither Jerry Flanagan, Kevin Kopa nor James Caudle have shared this information – or dispelled the rumors (if not true)
Do you have information regarding these or other JDog vendors jumping ship? Please share, in confidence, with a comment below or an email to UnhappyFranchisee[at]Gmail.Com.
If you are among the veterans or military family members whose JDog franchise(s ) closed before reaching the end of the contract term, please accept our condolences.
Please share your experience and insights so fellow veterans can make informed investment decisions regarding the JDog franchise.
