JDog Franchise(UnhappyFranchisee.Com)  In its JDog Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs) dated 2016 – 2022, JDog Franchises LLC disclosed the names and contact information of nearly 100 franchisees who “had an outlet terminated, cancelled, not renewed, or otherwise voluntarily or involuntarily ceased to do business under the franchise agreement during the most recently completed fiscal year or has not communicated with the franchisor within 10 weeks of the disclosure document issuance date.”

We’ve combed through the yearly updates for both the JDog Junk Removal & Hauling franchise and the JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care franchise to compile the list of disclosed names, below.

JDog Franchisees That Left the System

We’ve added the branch of military served by the franchisee, where known.

    300+ Veteran-owned franchises terminated, transferred or ceased operation for other reasons is nonsense? Can you clarify that… as one whose main purpose is to reduce the Veteran unemployment rate to leess than 1%, fight Veteran depression, suicide, blah blah blah?

    I guess I’m a little hazy on the “ethos of brotherhood” thing!

    FYI I compiled most of the list from JDog FDDs. That’s where I got your termination/transfer/failed info: JDog 2023/2024 FDD. If that’s incorrect, please call Jerry Flanagan who certified it as accurate under penalty of law.

    I would love to chat with your attorney. Can you send me his number?

    All the best,


    JDog Wilmington

    Josh Polley states:

    “For the record, I sold for a profit & made money.”

    It’s true that SOME on the list are transfers who may have sold their franchise or territory. A few, very few, even made money.

    I’m sure Josh made sure the Veteran-brother he sold to read the item 20 and was aware of the horrendous failure rate.

    Congratulations, Josh. I’m sure the 299 on the list are happy for you.
