City Wide Franchise Celebrates Monumental Growth in 2016
Nation’s Leading Building Maintenance Management Company Opens Five New Offices, Plans for 10 More in 2017
January 26, 2017 // Franchising.com // LENEXA, Kan. – City Wide, the nation’s leading management company in the building maintenance industry, is celebrating a great year of franchise growth. The brand, recognized for its ability to provide innovative solutions for commercial property managers and real estate owners, opened five new offices in 2016, with three more signed and scheduled to open in early 2017. New offices opened in Wichita, Kansas; Providence, Rhode Island; Salt Lake City; Charleston, South Carolina; and Phoenix, of which the last two were expansions by existing franchisees to become multi-unit owners.
“When we decided to first get involved with franchising, our goal was to welcome in franchisees who possess similar values and a desire to succeed by establishing a sound reputation in the communities we serve,” said Jeff Oddo, president of City Wide and the architect of the company’s national expansion. “In 2016 we added new franchisees who helped us do just that. We couldn’t be more excited to continue growing our footprint throughout the country.”
The momentum City Wide achieved in the last year is a clear indication that it has established itself as a major building maintenance management franchise on the national level.
“From coast to coast, growth is on the horizon for City Wide,” added Oddo. “ We expanded into new territories and will continue to do the same this year, as we have plans to open offices in new markets. As the demand for management in the building maintenance industry increases, we will continue to be the trusted ally businesses can rely on to get the job done. We have big goals for 2017 and have plans in place to reach new heights.”
City Wide’s footprint will continue to widen as the brand plans eight to 10 openings in 2017. New offices are expected to open in Southwest Philadelphia, Central New Jersey, and New Hampshire in the coming months.
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 independent contractors and vendor partners, including floor care, window washing, janitorial supplies, parking lot maintenance, and several others. Taking the onus from 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.
Beyond the loyalty it builds with clients, City Wide plays an important role within the local economies it serves by putting business back into the community. Smaller, independent, and locally owned maintenance companies pair up with City Wide, benefitting from the professional demeanor City Wide brings to the table with its clients.
