Entrepreneur magazine ranks System4 cleaning as the #41 franchise in its top franchises list. According to the System4 commercial cleaning franchise opportunity website, “Commercial cleaning is a $100 billion industry and System4 is the most innovative and fastest growing commercial cleaning business in the country.
“We’re made up of thousands of local entrepreneurs who have dreamt of having their own businesses. System4 makes these dreams possible by handling all the sales and administrative responsibilities while letting the franchisee focus on exceeding customer expectations…”
According to the System4 franchise website: “Master Franchise Owners operate a sales and management company that provides guaranteed cleaning contracts to Local Franchise Owners. They manage the relationship between the Local Franchisees and their customers and they provide administrative support to them. This allows the Local Franchisees to concentrate on servicing their individual customers, and when ready, building their business with additional accounts. With System4, Local Franchise Owners can generate supplemental income by servicing the accounts themselves or building their own full-time commercial cleaning business!”
However, one franchise owner raises complaints common to most other janitorial franchise opportunities, including underbid accounts and fraudulently taking accounts away from one franchise owner to give to new franchise owners. (READ: Commercial Cleaning Franchise Complaints)
Is System4 a Commercial Cleaning Franchise Scam?
Franchisee ABBASI HUFF write on Thu 1 Jan, 2009:
it looks like all the cleaning company they are doing the same thing. I have bad experience with SYSTEM4 as franchise owner- I had to get out faster before it si too late.
The operation manager not trusted.
low bid contract – system 4 makes money and you work for nothing
System4 will tell you that you will make a lot money and be own boss in reality they are the ones making your money.
You will have no money to pay someone else to do the job unless you pay them less than 5 dollor and you make 5 dollars less expenses.
I DO NOT ADVISE ANYONE TO INVEST WITH SYSTEM4 LAMKEN ENTERPRISES INC THEY ARE NOT ALL WHAT THEY SAY THERE !
HOW WOULD THEY GIVE NEW INVESTORS THIER CONTRACTS- SCAM AS WELL WATCH OUT SCAM !!
