The idea has been on your mind for a long time, but there have been too many doubts or unanswered questions to take a leap of faith. Now, finally, something has led you to dig deeper and understand the process to become a franchisee.
We felt those same feelings when we started our family business in 1961. Today, we have nearly 60 years of experience in the cleaning and building maintenance industry. Our business has become bigger than we could have ever dreamed back then, and now, we want to share this journey—and our knowledge—with you.
City Wide is looking for senior-level professionals who are interested in becoming franchise owners in the United States and Canada. If you have 10+ years of sales and management experience in corporate America, but want to do something much bigger for yourself, your family, and your community, we’d love to meet you.
We promise to take every step with you by providing franchisee training, giving you our full support, and making you feel like you are truly part of our family.

The economic potential of City Wide is strong. Based on the earnings claim in Item 19 of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) City Wide makes a compelling business model. For individuals willing to work hard, follow the system, and build a team around them, income and wealth goals and aspirations can be achieved.
The system at City Wide has been well-vetted and proven. City Wide has a model for success as a sales and management business operating in the building maintenance and commercial cleaning industry. We’re the professional link between clients and contractors for commercial buildings and their maintenance and janitorial needs. We invite you, during your Discovery Day, to see the franchise-owned operation in Kansas City. In addition to seeing the first location, founded in 1961, we welcome you to validate with our franchisees by asking them about their experience including their challenges and successes.
City Wide offers an opportunity to achieve your lifestyle goals in balancing professional and personal demands. There is no question your launch will require an all-in tenacious effort with strategic “deep dives” into every facet of the business. Building your sales and management team and succeeding through others is the ultimate opportunity that will meet your lifestyle goals while capturing your fair share of the market and building a sustainable legacy business.
Having had the opportunity to be part of the City Wide Home Office, selling City Wide for eight years, I would share this view:
My advice is simple on how you can be a success owning a City Wide Franchise. First, find a great partner with a work ethic you admire. Keep the message simple and be relentless at sales. Find the spot where you are uncomfortable and be there often. Chose to do the work in sales because it is difficult. This is where you will find both a passion for the business model and an addiction.
Much like the saying, “dreams come true, not free,” City Wide offered me the opportunity to chase a dream to build a business for my family though hard work and perseverance. The fruits of that hard work have not only created a profitable and growing family legacy business but, more importantly, the platform for us to improve the quality of life of our employees’ families as well as to give back in a meaningful way to our middle Tennessee community. The ceiling is high for those who want to chase their dreamTim AkersOwner – City Wide Maintenance of Nashville
Jeff and I saw firsthand through my work for City Wide Franchise Corporate how this business can provide real wealth opportunities for us; there is no greater endorsement than a former employee who decides to buy a franchise from the company! With City Wide, we get to make a difference in our community, not just for ourselves and our family, but for our clients and our team. The work is rewarding because we believe in what we are doing for our clients every day.Meredith Cimino Co-Owner, City Wide Maintenance of Omaha
What appealed to us about City Wide was the opportunity to work together and build a family business. No corporate bosses, no long distance travel, and the freedom to be there for our children when we want. Personal effort is directly rewarded with results and as you grow you get to share that success with an ever-growing team of direct staff, independent contractors, and happy clients.Alan MathesonCo-Owner – City Wide of Central Pennsylvania
I fell in love with the Home Office team. I believed in the concept of the model. I loved the team’s professionalism, enthusiasm, integrity, ethics and, most importantly, family values. When we left [Discovery Day] I was scared we would not be selected. We were so excited when we got the call that we had been. It has been the best decision we have ever made for our family.Naila MathesonCo-Owner – City Wide of Central Pennsylvania
