Your Future Starts Here

History

A young entrepreneur named Frank Oddo decided to open up his own janitorial company in Kansas City when he couldn’t find the right job. For 40 years he successfully ran a traditional maintenance company with a full staff of in-house employees. In 1999, 3 years after his son, Jeff, took over as president the business model transformed into a management company that worked with independent service providers.
 
 
 
This new business model allowed City Wide to:
  • Grow to more than $2 million in monthly revenue in our most recent fiscal year.
  • Focus on sales and management of services along with client retention.
  • Work with local maintenance companies who were already established service professionals in the community.

Today, Kansas City is still in operation and serves as a beta test site for all new franchise programs. City Wide has grown to more than 30 franchise locations across the country from San Diego, CA to Boston, MA, from Seattle, WA to Charlotte, NC.

What I love about this business is that I am doing the same thing I was doing in corporate America but now I am building a business for myself. Repeat contracts, no hourly employees, no more travel, in control of my own destiny... somebody pinch me!
