City Wide franchise partners who join the association will now have access to various training courses and materials, networking opportunities, and marketing collateral at a discounted rate through the franchisor.
The announcement about the new membership package comes the week of the 2015 ISSA /INTERCLEAN annual convention, October 20-23, 2015 in Las Vegas, which will bring together more than 700 global suppliers and 16,000 industry leaders from 78 countries to drive innovation, productivity, and profitability in the global cleaning industry.

City Wide Franchise will also be debuting a new national affiliate program. The program will focus on recruiting affiliate partners to expand the company’s U.S. footprint in underserved regions throughout California, New York, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere in the United States where the company does not have a franchise location.
City Wide has made a name for itself in major U.S. cities by streamlining commercial facilities and maintenance management of more than 20 services through a collection of service providers and alliance partners, including floor care, window washing, janitorial supplies, parking lot maintenance, and several others. Taking the onus off building owners and property management companies that typically have to choose separate companies for each task, City Wide eases the selection and management processes for its clients.
Founded in 1961, City Wide has become synonymous with building maintenance in its home Kansas City market and the 40-plus U.S. regions where it has grown through franchising since 2001. A single-source solution for all building maintenance services, City Wide contracts with independent service providers to give clients access to dozens of interior and exterior services. City Wide simplifies the maintenance matters that mean most to building owners, operators and management companies, easing the time, stress and resources typically required to oversee an entire facility.
