I signed up with this cleaning franchise hoping to make some money this was back in march 2013  its already almost july and they haven’t offered  me any extra cleaning accounts. 

very  sad  and when you call them they are always away from there phone or out of their office for fews days  give me a break, if your looking to sign up with any franchise do not choose this one  despite what you read on the web or on their website or anywhere else they under bid any contract you get  

so lets say  I clean 2 days a week which I  didn’t ask for in the beginning I wanted a fulltime account which is 5 days. anyways getting on with the story  my total per month and this is no lie is only 240 dollars I get paid on the 15th every month thats it.   for a investment of 900 dollars really thats the best this franchise can  do 

they are total scammers don’t care about there franchise owners at all  their all about themselves  so anyone out there run far away from this franchise   BUYER BEWARE.

I spoke to the local Buildingstars Guy in White Plains, NY (Westchester County, directly north of the Bronx, NYC) and after emails, he refused to give me the franchise contract so I could read it prior to going to his office to get the hard sell !

So, finally, I told him in an email that until I got that document and either sample or actual customer contracts there would be no meeting. So far, no documents . . .

However, Edward writes that he is happy with his BuildingStars franchise:

Edward says:

I am a current franchise owner in Phoenix. I bought my franchise about a year ago from Buildingstars. I have been very Happy with the business I’ve received in the last year. The manager of the branch is fair and he stands up for his franchise owners and makes sure that everyone is happy. He will not allow us to do a bad cleaning job, though. If we don’t do a good job more than once we lose the account.

My wife and I have not lost a single account in the last year because we care about the way We do the job.

I really like this company. At first, we started with just a couple accounts part-time. Now we both average about $15 an hour.

When we get to a higher level we can hire employees and our money will go up. It just depends on how fast we can grow our business.

    BUYER BEWARE They will promise you more accounts and growth and only deliver the minimum $$$ amount they agree to. Without an exclusive territory you have many competitors, as the master franchise grows. No way of knowing what work he gives to others. My guy’s idea of real growth when I pressed him, is to string together many small, low profit jobs all together- their fees are way too high Their cut is slanted, and they are winning low bid jobs on your sweat and effort. ALOT OF EMPTY PROMISES STAY AWAY

    My wife just bought into this franchise in Phoenix. Their promises have been huge so far and after 1 month my wife is just now getting her first gig at 2 days per week and it will pay $272 each month. This is before taxes so you need to remember to take out your taxes that you’d pay to uncle sam each month and put that aside.

    I am a born skeptic so I will be watching very closely – if things turn out good and the business grows, I’ll let you know, if not I’ll let you know.

    Wish us luck.

    So I joined April 2014 and so far okay still haven’t been offered an actual full time account but whenever there is an available account near my location buildingstars manager does offer them of purse with no commitment. I’m currently working now working 5days a week with optional weekends not bad for making 800 per month so it’s like having a full time account but instead it’s three which aren’t difficult at all I’m putting in less than 8hrs a week in total with all three account for 800 and I work on my schedule couldn’t get any better. Only complain I will say is that it’s very difficult to get anyone from buildingstars office in downers grove to answer or return my calls that’s my only issue and it’s not like I live around the corner where I can just drop in. Otherwise I do highly recommend the business it’s a little extra cash on your time and I love that you can make payments on your equipment package or pay in ful as you wish. Happy franchise!

    I feel my money is stolen. I came with all the money I was told to and have made no money. That man was a smooth talker and maybe his secretary should take a shower
