Kelvin “Fat Kat” Taylor, Franchise Owner at Jan-Pro of Richmond, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in janitorial services.
Growing up, Mr. Taylor was raised by his grandparents because his mother worked full days as a teacher and a department store associate. He recalls he was a good kid but eventually, he started hanging out with the wrong crowd. After his experiences with troublesome youth, he desired to take on something meaningful in which he could help other kids living through the same struggles he did. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Taylor began working at a group home for at-risk children, with which he was later appointed the director. This experience inspired him to establish a mentoring company called Impact Mentors, which helped foster his entrepreneurial spirit.
Finding great enjoyment in running a business, Mr. Taylor later opened a clothing store and got into the party promotions industry, leading him also to concerts. Through his progressing experience and connections, he began doing contract work for Live Nation, joining on tours nationwide. While he found happiness in his role, Mr. Taylor remained open-minded to taking on new avenues in his professional endeavors and began exploring the janitorial field. He had a meeting with Coverall Franchise and the Jan-Pro Franchise, ultimately choosing to expand his profession with Jan-Pro of Richmond.
Since 2015, Mr. Taylor has flourished as the owner of Jan-Pro of Richmond, specializing in cleaning and disinfecting numerous kinds of medical offices, government buildings, schools and more. Notably, he was the recipient of the Certified Business Owner of The Year Award from the president/CEO of JAN-PRO Franchise International, Russ Reynolds, in 2019, which he cites as the highlight of his career. In addition, Mr. Taylor has been the owner of Major Carrier Inc., a trucking company, Kat Cares, a nonprofit, and Chart Chance Musik, a record label with distribution with Universal Records, all since 2021. Looking ahead, he aims to ensure the continued success of all of his entrepreneurial endeavors.
