City Wide Franchise Recognized As Franchise 500 Company for 5th Consecutive Year

City Wide Franchise Company has been recognized as a Franchise 500 company by Entrepreneur Magazine for the fifth consecutive year. Only nine years after offering its unique business model through franchising, City Wide Franchise Company continues to grow and be recognized by the most comprehensive franchise rankings in the world.

This is the magazine’s 32nd annual exercise to rank the best franchise opportunities within multiple categories. The publication considers many factors when determining rankings including franchising start date, available territories, start up costs and percentage of terminations.

“We think being ranked for so many consecutive years speaks volumes about the opportunity City Wide offers,” said Jeff Oddo, City Wide Franchise president. “We strive to provide a wealth building opportunity to entrepreneurs around the country and think being ranked in the Franchise 500 shows we are continuing to be successful in our goals.”

City Wide Franchise offers its unique business model to successful, experienced sales and management professionals. City Wide is a management company for the building maintenance industry, giving owners more than 20 different ways to open a door and create business because of the multitude of building services they are able to offer. By partnering with local business owners, City Wide does not spend valuable capital on in house employees or expensive equipment and instead focuses on management.

City Wide was founded in Kansas City, MO by Frank Oddo nearly fifty years ago and is now a national organization with multiple locations. Current President, Jeff Oddo, second generation owner, began franchising the company’s business model in 2001.

Success Stories

I feel very blessed to be part of this business. The thing that is amazing about this franchise model and system that I don’t think any of us foresaw was the scaleability. The scaleability makes all the difference. This is everything I liked about corporate America without all the micromanagement that I hated.

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 dream.

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.

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.

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.
