City Wide Maintenance of Jacksonville Named Fastest-Growing Private Company

JACKSONVILLE, FL—City Wide Maintenance of Jacksonville, the market’s leading building maintenance management company, today announced it has earned a spot on the Jacksonville Business Journal’s annual ranking of Northeast Florida’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

Each year the Jacksonville Business Journal announces the top 50 fastest-growing, private companies in Northeast Florida based on verified financial criteria submitted from hundreds of nominees. To be eligible, companies must be privately held, locally owned, and for profit. Companies must also have been in business for a minimum of four years, prove annual revenue growth over a three-year period, and be based in Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, or St. Johns counties.

“It is an honor to be named to such a prestigious ranking of the region’s fastest-growing private companies,” said Cary Fourman, Principal of City Wide Maintenance of Jacksonville. “This is a testament to the hard work we’ve put in to building tight bonds with property managers and facility service professionals throughout the area. I couldn’t be more proud of our team and their continued commitment to growing our company into what it is today.”

The full list of honorees was announced on Thursday, July 16th during an awards banquet held at the World Golf Village Renaissance St. Augustine Resort in St. Augustine, Florida. Fourman attended the event to accept the award.

Building on the momentum the company has achieved over the past year, City Wide Maintenance of Jacksonville was also named to City Wide Corporate’s 2015 “Million Dollar Club.” The designation is given to City Wide franchise locations that have grown their annual revenue by one million dollars or more over a calendar 12-month period.

Success Stories

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 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.
