Leading Facilities Management Franchise Ranked On Prestigious List of the 400 Largest Franchise Brands
LENEXA, Kan. — City Wide Facility Solutions announced today it has once again been named in the top half of the annual Franchise Times’ Top 400 list.
Over the past 12 months, City Wide broke internal goals and historical records for total signed franchise agreements. During the same period, there have been 10 new locations that have signed throughout North America, including City Wide’s fourth location in Canada. This impressive growth brings the total number of signed locations to 98, as City Wide is on track to hit nearly $700 million in revenue.
“It has certainly been a record-breaking year all around for us — we’ve seen a tremendous amount of growth in our sales and average unit volume, as well as in the locations we have been able to open across the country,” said Jeff Oddo, CEO and owner of City Wide Facility Solutions and City Wide Franchise. “To me, this growth and this recognition from Franchise Times is continued proof of the culture we have so thoughtfully built within our franchise system. Our focus will remain the same through the end of this year and into next — making a positive impact on our communities and peoples’ lives.”
City Wide Facility Solutions’ Mission is to create a Ripple Effect by positively impacting the people and communities it serves. This was evident earlier this year at City Wide’s Annual Convention, where the franchise system raised more than $625,000 for a local nonprofit. Even more, City Wide’s Indianapolis franchise raised $100,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
The collection of systemwide sales data also provides useful insight into the franchise industry’s performance as the shakeout continues following the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of the 10 major franchise categories analyzed, just two—Health & Medical and Real Estate—saw an overall decline in sales. The personal services, automotive, and cleaning franchise industries all saw percentage sales growth in the double digits last year.
City Wide Facility Solutions 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.
