feature image of City Wide Welcomes Six New Seasoned Entrepreneurs

City Wide’s franchise system boasts motivated franchisees, determined to take control of their destinies and grow their businesses in a $100 billion industry. Recently, several offices have seen new changes in ownership, with three locations welcoming a total of six seasoned entrepreneurs and business professionals:

o   Jeff Erickson and Meredith Cimino (Omaha, Nebraska)

o   Stuart Moyer (San Antonio, Texas)

o   Trina and David Petrash, joined by Antonio Rivera (Tucson, Arizona)

The building maintenance franchise system is proud to support franchisees from all walks of life. The diverse backgrounds of these new owners have immensely prepared each individual to take the reins and incorporate their sales and management expertise, maximizing the effectiveness of services.

Partners Jeff Erickson and Meredith Cimino bring 30 years of management, sales, and experience as a business performance coach with City Wide Maintenance in Kansas City, helping franchisees run their offices effectively. The new owners will continue to make a name for City Wide, using their knowledge of the industry to continue the franchise’s growth.

“For years I’ve coached City Wide owners on how to best operate their business…now I can take that knowledge and use it to grow a business of my own,” said Cimino. “The City Wide location in Omaha has already earned a great reputation in the building maintenance industry, and we’re looking forward to growing this as we prioritize being a local resource for the commercial building maintenance industry.”

Stuart Moyer, a seasoned entrepreneur and business professional, has taken ownership of the San Antonio office. Joining City Wide’s home office in September 2010, he’s spent nearly eight years developing a strong understanding of the property management franchise before moving to the San Antonio market. Switching from the franchise’s senior director of sales position to the president of San Antonio’s office team, Moyer aims to further reinforce the company’s business operations and strengthen new and existing client relationships.

“This industry is all about being an effective listener and anticipating your clients’ needs; it’s my guiding principle,” said Moyer. “I’m thrilled for my next journey with City Wide and I’m confident this move will have a positive ripple effect on my team and the San Antonio business community.”

New owners Trina and David Petrash have teamed up with Antonio Rivera to lead the City Wide of Southern Arizona office. The three offer highly esteemed service backgrounds, with Trina leading as a 20-year Army veteran who served as a chemical officer, David as a nuclear engineer onboard submarines in the U.S. Navy with more than 25 years of sales and sales management experience, and Rivera as a Purple Heart recipient, serving more than eight years in the U.S. Army with three tours in Iraq. Their backgrounds together have equipped them well for their roles.

“We’re confident our location will benefit the independent contractors in our company and the businesses we serve,” said Rivera.

Over more than 55 years, City Wide Maintenance has grown from just a janitorial company into a booming franchise committed to local facility maintenance overseen by expert business professionals. With more than 50 locations across the country and counting, City Wide offers key opportunities for franchisees with strong sales and management experience to make a name for themselves.


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.
