City Wide of Metro Atlanta Principals Drive Record Growth in First Year

City Wide of Metro Atlanta, is excited to report record growth in its first year under new ownership. Under the leadership of Principals Jeremy Wood and David Otis, the enterprise has achieved 158% sales and a retention rate of 97%, resulting in a tripling of overall company revenue by its first anniversary.

Partners Jeremy Wood and David Otis acquired City Wide of Metro Atlanta from City Wide Franchise in August 2012. Both partners had extensive industry experience with sales and operations, and were able to effect a smooth transition for current clients and create a solid foundation for rapid growth.

Otis drives sales for the company, and will be named to the City Wide Franchise national sales team’s Achiever’s Club in 2013.

“Jeremy and David are natural leaders and have made an excellent team. Their ability to achieve rapid sales growth while maintaining strong account retention gives them a solid foundation for future growth,” said Jeff Oddo, President of City Wide Maintenance.

Wood is confident that their second year will be stronger than the first. “We are focusing in on operations, reinforcing our account management team and continuing to improve the quality service we deliver to our clients,” Wood said.


Success Stories

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.

What I love about this business is 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!
