Recent City Wide Maintenance Openings

After a phenomenal year of growth in 2014, the City Wide franchise system has expanded its U.S. presence even further, opening locations in Milwaukee, the Inland Empire in California and Houston.

Now operating in more than 40 cities in 25 states across the nation, City Wide’s streamlined commercial facilities and maintenance management services are available to even more building owners and property management companies.

Sandi and Robby Armstrong opened City Wide of Milwaukee around the New Year. Their combined corporate backgrounds in sales, marketing and global business development have given them a leg up in opening their new office.

On the West Coast, Michael Castillo launched City Wide of the Inland Empire in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Michael’s financial services background at Bank of America and UBS gives him the opportunity to better relate to the small business owners he interacts with on a daily basis.

At the end of 2014, Darren Frerking assumed ownership of City Wide Maintenance of Houston. A former sales executive at the City Wide home office, Darren’s in-depth knowledge of the company and its leadership has allowed him to create a legacy business that he hopes to one day pass on to his children.

“This is the meeting of two perfect opportunities – I was able to help grow a business that I truly believe in, and then invest my own money in watching it blossom,” said Darren.

Success Stories

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

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.

success story of Alan Matheson Alan MathesonCo-Owner – City Wide of Central Pennsylvania

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.
