Jet-Black® Franchise Group © 1987-2018

In 1987, Jet-Black Founder, Andy Hoiland, realized there was a void in the asphalt maintenance industry for a trusted brand name company.  Jet-Black was born.  The business took off so fast that in 1991 Hoiland began franchising the Jet-Black brand.  Jet-Black has enjoyed steady, stable growth since that time.  In 2012, Jet-Black acquired the Black Dawg Franchise Group, which included franchise brands Black Dawg Sealcoat, Yellow Dawg Line Striping and Blue Dawg Power Wash.  Jet-Black Franchise Group now focusses on franchise success through a proven business model, ongoing corporate support, a variety of marketing options, and the use of high quality equipment and products.  The proprietary STARS database (see below) is the core of the infrastructure of each franchise brand and provides a superior platform to maximize each protected territory.  Why do we call them Franchises that Work?  We believe in service type businesses where real work results in real profits.  While starting any business has inherent risk, our brands are designed to be low risk due to the high demand for the services and low overhead. Consider joining over 40 franchise owners operating over 110 franchised territories in 15 states. 

The International Franchise Association, founded in 1960, is a membership organization of franchisors, franchisees, and suppliers.  Jet-Black Franchise Group has been a member since 1993. Click on IFA icon above for more info.
