Companies like WORKIZ have helped obscure the true risks and high failure rates of the JDog Junk Removal and JDog Carpet Cleaning franchises by posting false information and deceptive claims. (See: WORKIZ LIES: The JDog False Success Story )
The truth is – according to the company’s own numbers and a warning by the California Department of Financial Protection & Innovation (CDFPI) – out of 344 JDog franchises that opened, 244 exited prematurely through terminations or ownership transfers.
The list of JDog franchise owners who had their franchises terminated or transferred includes veterans from every branch of military service, including the ARMY, NAVY, MARINE CORP. and COAST GUARD. (List of JDog Franchisees With Closed or Failed Franchises )
