Company Overview

Co-founders Phil Kubec and Edward Hammer started System4 based on their combined business experience. Kubec had been both a franchisee and the CEO of a large commercial cleaning franchise; he also became one of System4's first master franchisees. Hammer was involved in multiple entrepreneurial ventures prior to System4, including the startup of a vehicle rental company. In 2014, System4 ceased offering unit franchises and began converting all unit franchisees to independent "affiliates," which do not pay royalties and are free to do business with any company. The franchisor now offers only master franchises, and these are the numbers reflected in our listing for 2012 on.
