City Wide Facility Solutions Keeps Momentum with Ranking on the Inc. 5000 List

City Wide Facility Solutions announced today it has made the 41st annual Inc. 5000 list for the fifth consecutive year. City Wide boasts a 95% three-year revenue growth rate.

“After more than 25 years of leading City Wide, I’m grateful my team and I can continue to celebrate new achievements. These past 12 months have been our biggest — we signed 16 new locations and plan to open at least five more locations by year end. This recognition from Inc. is the icing on the cake for us,” said Jeff Oddo, CEO and owner of the Kansas City-based City Wide Facility Solutions. “I am confident in our ability to grow by over $100 million a year and reach our goal of becoming a billion dollar brand by the end of 2026. Being nationally ranked on a list like Inc. 5000 proves we’re on the right track.”

Due to City Wide’s limited number of large, exclusive territories, its selection process is very discerning. In 2021 the company raised its average unit volume to $6.7 million – an increase of $1.2 million over 2020 – while the top quartile enjoyed an average annual revenue of $15.1 million. City Wide is on track to exceed $550 million in systemwide revenue in 2022.

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work and rising to the challenges of today.”

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.

Entrepreneurially-spirited individuals interested in owning a City Wide franchise should have a business-to-business background focused on sales, management and operations experience as well as have a desire to be a part of a mission driven organization that prioritizes giving back to the community and the franchise system.

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.

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. Choose 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.
