Creating a Ripple with City Wide


From providing opportunities for independent contractors to volunteering and fundraising for charitable organizations, the ripple effect is at the heart of everything we do at City Wide.

At City Wide Facility Solutions, we have a mission that drives everything we do: To create a Ripple Effect by positively impacting the people and communities we serve. What does this mean exactly? It means we believe every positive action has the power to reach far beyond its initial impact. Scott Romero, franchise owner for City Wide Facility Solutions – Memphis, shares his experience with the ripple and how it motivates his team every day.

“When I first became introduced to City Wide and they talked about the ripple and their mission to impact people’s lives, it really sounded good.” Romero stated. “Then, when I became a franchisee I saw that ripple, and efforts to create it really come into action. It wasn’t just lip service, but a mission practiced by the entire team–from the top down–daily.” The ripple effect is something that is deeply ingrained in the company culture at City Wide.

One way City Wide spreads a ripple is through partnering with Independent Contractors. “Because of City Wide, (Independent Contractors) are able to get contracts and into buildings they wouldn’t have been able to serve on their own. City Wide opens doors for them as part of our ripple,” Romero says. “It’s exciting to see our Independent Contractors, who provide the services, be successful and grow their business.”

City Wide’s commitment to creating a ripple effect also extends beyond daily operations through various volunteering and fundraising events. This was particularly evident at this year’s annual Convention, where City Wide came together to raise over $500,000 for the LiFT foundation. City Wide recognizes the importance of giving back to the community on an ongoing basis. As part of our dedication to social responsibility, City Wide provides employees with paid volunteer hours. This empowers our team to actively contribute their time and skills to causes they are passionate about.

From providing opportunities for independent contractors to volunteering and fundraising for charitable organizations, the ripple effect is at the heart of everything we do. Our mission to spread the ripple also extends to our customers. We strive to provide exceptional service with a focus on customer satisfaction. With over 20 managed solutions under one roof and one point of contact for all facility maintenance needs, we make it easy for our clients to have a single partner they can rely on. By creating a ripple effect that extends beyond our daily operations, we aim to inspire others to join us in making a positive difference in the world.

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!

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.
