Why System4 for a Cleaning Business Franchise?

System4 was started by Phil Kubec and Ed Hammer, two guys with franchise and nationwide business development experience with the objective of creating the best franchisee value in the industry.

Both founders had previously built $300 million national companies: Phil in the commercial cleaning industry and Ed in the car rental industry. The idea was to take what they learned from their previous success and, with a clean slate, "create a better mouse trap." The "better mouse trap" is a combination of Phil's success in building a franchise janitorial company from a single location to an organization with 7,000 franchisees and 32,000 customers, and Ed's experience in growing a rental car business from start-up to 435 locations. All of our management team have either been a franchisee, master owner, sales person, sales manager and/or entrepreneur. We have lived what you are investing in and we have designed System4 to be the best choice in the marketplace.

The mission of System4 is to create successful entrepreneurs in the commercial cleaning industry. We measure our results from the growth and success of our franchisees and the satisfaction of our customers. We have designed our investment packages, growth business and ongoing support with this in mind.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
