Learn About City Wide Franchises
What makes City Wide Unique?
The City Wide franchise utilizes a unique B2B business model that enables
franchise owners to market, sell and manage over 20 different building
maintenance services, along with a method to professionally manage the process.
The City Wide business model is not about directly providing the services,
either by your own efforts or through your own employees. Rather, City Wide
utilizes certified independent contractors who are already in the business of
providing the services City Wide sells. City Wide provides the sales and
customer relations, while the independent contractors provide the actual
service. This model ensures quality services are provided to City Wide clients.
This model is the major reason why City Wide has enjoyed years of success
keeping those clients for a long time.
Major Market Opportunities Available
City Wide franchise owners have exclusive rights to major metro markets with
populations of 500,000 people and above. Selling and managing multiple services
to all types of commercial properties allows franchise owners multiple
opportunities to find new clients. Instead of just offering carpet cleaning or
window washing, you now have a business model that teaches you how to bid and
manage most any service that a commercial property would use. Every business is
Our Greatest Advantage
At City Wide, you don't have to start over every month, too often a frustration
in retail and other service franchises. Instead, the City Wide model is one
where you are always building on the previous month's sales. City Wide sells
annual service contracts which enables consistent growth. Each month you will
sign new contracts with new clients and you will sell additional services to
Certified Independent Contractors
City Wide utilizes independent business owners who specialize in the services we
sell. City Wide acts as their sales department while the certified independent
contractors act as our staffing and operations department. This removes the
franchise owner from recruiting, hiring and training the workers, as well as
dealing with the headaches associated with an employee-intensive business.
By partnering with strong operational companies with technical expertise, City
Wide can focus on what we do best - sales and managing the process.
It's simple, by offering the "total solution," we save our clients time! City
Wide provides its clients with one point of contact, knowledgeable on all types
of facility services. We remove the headaches associated with managing multiple
service providers. City Wide quickly becomes the "go-to guy" for each client,
offering the franchise owner the opportunity to cross-sell numerous services,
increasing margins and making it more difficult for clients to replace us as a

contractors do and how the relationship is tied together with a performance
bond, another major component of our success.
Selling & Managing
The primary responsibility of a franchise owner is to sell new accounts and
manage the relationships with clients and independent contractors. Again, it's
the City Wide business model that allows you to leverage resources and minimize
your risk. You are then free to grow a business -- limited only by your own
imagination and abilities.
The City Wide business model has proven successful for more than 45 years. We
perfected the model first and only then did we chose to grow through
franchising. We continue to be "in the business" and the entire City Wide
Management Team is available to the franchise owners across the country and
dedicated to your success!
