Fourth City Wide Location Opens in Virginia

ROANOKE, Va. – City Wide Facility Solutions, the leading management company in the building maintenance industry, continues its growth trajectory with the announcement of the opening of its 88th location and fourth location for the state of Virginia. The new office serves the I-81 Corridor and the greater Roanoke Valley.

Local building owners and property management companies throughout Roanoke and surrounding areas now have access to a single-source solution for all their facility management needs. Entrepreneurs Kyle Calandro and Jeff Gilley have partnered with Chris Sweeney – owner of the existing Richmond location – to open City Wide Facility Solutions at 1626 Apperson Drive, Suites B/C in Salem, Virginia.

“I have always had the desire to own my own business. City Wide’s model and culture has spoken to me from day one and is exactly the kind of values I want to uphold as a leader and business owner,” said Calandro. “We both look forward to serving the Roanoke community and providing unparalleled facility management solutions,” added Gilley.

Calandro joins City Wide Facility Solutions with 11 years of experience in the Industrial Uniform and Facility Services industry. His role prior to coming to City Wide was General Manager for Aramark Uniforms in the New York Metro Market. Gilley was in sports radio as an anchor in Washington D.C. as well as an account executive before joining City Wide Facility Solutions. Sweeney is the franchise owner in Richmond and has owned his location for nearly 12 years.

City Wide Facility Solutions, which celebrated its 60th anniversary last year, has consistently evolved and adapted to become “The First Choice” for its clients, employees, franchise owners, independent contractors and vendors. Managing more than 20 services for its clients, City Wide offers one point of contact and provides professional communication and project management through every stage of the experience. This allows for clients to focus on running their business while uplifting smaller, independent and locally owned companies to execute services. More independent businesses and commercial properties across the United States and Canada will soon benefit from the opportunities and services City Wide affords, as additional locations are scheduled to open in Pennsylvania, California and New Jersey.


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.
