City Wide Maintenance Franchisee Shares Expertise With National Media
Since its inception in 1961, City Wide Maintenance has grown into a booming management franchise that oversees local facilities maintenance services for a variety of commercial establishments. Because City Wide Maintenance franchisees understand the ins and outs of property maintenance and have extensive sales and management experience, they are routinely called upon by media to share their expertise with a larger audience.
Recently Jennifer Slansky, President of City Wide Maintenance of Portland, shared her advice for scoring exterior maintenance contracts with her fellow professionals. In for Cleaning and Maintenance Management magazine, Jennifer pointed out that communicating the need for exterior maintenance to business owners can be tricky because it’s often an out-of-sight-out-of-mind situation.
But property maintenance professionals can stress its importance by emphasizing that the exterior is one of the first impressions customers receive. It’s also better to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to building maintenance, Jennifer pointed out. Stressing that safety is paramount when it comes to cracked pavements and parking lots is also a good way of ensuring that clients understand the need for ongoing exterior maintenance, Jennifer said.
This leads to healthier contracts for City Wide franchisees who work in sync with property management professionals in attending to a range of services for external maintenance as well: from parking lot maintenance and snow removal to window cleaning and landscaping needs.
Franchisees like Jennifer stand out in their communities as experts who can be relied upon to work with area contractors to solve a range of property maintenance challenges. It is why City Wide has grown to more than 55 locations around the country and is a great way for franchisees who have strong sales and management experience to carve their own niche in the booming property management industry.Back
