Jani-King, the world’s largest commercial cleaning franchise company, has been named the Official Cleaning Company of The PGA of America.

The five-year partnership will generate support for PGA Player Development initiatives, including Get Golf Ready.

Jani-King, which will have a presence at the 59th PGA Merchandise Show, Jan. 26-28, in Orlando, Fla., will network with PGA Professionals to market its commercial cleaning services to the golf industry.

“The PGA of America proudly welcomes Jani-King, which celebrates its 43rd anniversary this year, as a partner in The PGA of America family engaging our member professionals while supporting the growth of the game,” said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski. “Jani-King’s outstanding reputation of service complements our PGA Professionals’ efforts to best represent themselves and their facilities.”

Founded in 1969, and with headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Jani-King has more than 13,000 franchise owners worldwide and more than 120 regional offices in 17 countries.

“Jani-King is excited to partner with The PGA of America to not only grow the game of golf, but to also provide PGA Professionals with the opportunity to showcase their local facilities in a superior manner,” said Jani-King President Jerry Crawford. “Our commitment to customer satisfaction sets Jani-King apart and we look forward to delivering services that are beyond expectations of PGA Professionals and their members and guests.”

The PGA of America also announced today it has extended its agreement with Cutter & Buck — which designs and markets upscale sportswear and outerwear as the lead apparel partner for The PGA’s spectator events, including the PGA Championship, Ryder Cup and the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid.

This extension marks the 13th year of the partnership, which will continue through 2017.

“Cutter & Buck has been a longtime partner with The PGA of America and a tremendous supporter of the PGA Professional,” said PGA President Allen Wronowski. “We are very proud of our Championships, and we appreciate Cutter & Buck’s role in providing high-quality apparel that define the fashion of our events.”

The Seattle-based apparel manufacturer markets to men and women who appreciate innovative, high-quality sportswear using the best fabrics and trims, classic styling, and a wide range of colors to create clothing that looks and performs impeccably.

Thanks to a heritage of superb craftsmanship, countless professional golfers rely on Cutter & Buck’s timeless apparel to complement their games. The company has enjoyed continued growth in the ANNIKA line, named and designed for legendary golfer Annika Sorenstam, since its introduction in 2004. The company also produces a separate women’s line under the Cutter & Buck label.
