Sales and Management Experience Gives New Franchisees Jump Start in City Wide Business

Meredith Cimino and Jeff Erickson are betting that two is better than one. The couple has teamed up to take over leadership at the City Wide Maintenance office in Omaha.

For years, Cimino was a sales executive and then business coach at City Wide Maintenance in Kansas City, helping franchisees fine tune their operations. She also had an inside view of the franchise’s sales and management operations. For his part, Erickson ran a marketing firm, which catered to the needs of manufacturers in the food service industry. Together, they are looking forward to pool their strengths, leverage their experience, and take their new business to greater heights.

After running his own small business, Erickson knows owners can be stretched for time. That’s exactly why solutions from City Wide Maintenance, which offers a one-stop point of contact for a range of janitorial and non-janitorial services, can be so valuable. “Being a small business owner is challenging; you wear so many hats. The same holds true for my City Wide clients; they are looking to me for help. I’m here to solve their problems, save them time, and be a trusted resource,” Erickson points out.

Cimino and Erickson’s well-versed knowledge in sales and management is just the beginning to their climb to success at City Wide—especially since the company’s tools and processes are already in place to help them grow in the booming commercial maintenance industry. The duo’s office location will serve many areas, including Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, as well as Cedar Bluffs, Iowa.

Being a City Wide franchisee is “a win all around,” Erickson says. “This company offers us sales processes, software, training, and a profitable business model for all involved.”

Success Stories

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 [Discover 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.
