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.

City Wide Franchise Donates More Than $600,000 to Florida-Based Organization, LiFT

2023-03-30T11:42:56-04:00March 30th, 2023|Tags: , , |

LENEXA, Kan. — City Wide Facility Solutions of Tampa Bay, the nation’s leading commercial facility management company, raised $621,000 for Learning Independence for Tomorrow (LiFT) at its annual franchise convention this past March.

City Wide’s mission is to create a Ripple Effect by positively impacting the people and communities it supports. Franchisees from nearly 95 City Wide franchise locations came together to support the Tampa Bay location as part of its ongoing partnership with the nonprofit. Opened in 2010 by local entrepreneurs Steve Howerton and John Duffy, the Tampa Bay franchise location has a long-standing track record of supporting neurodiversity and LiFT through the nonprofit’s microbusiness program.

“Many of the educational and support systems that someone with neurodiversity requires aren’t readily available. Unfortunately, this means people with neurodiversity are isolated and not given the resources to survive,” said Howerton, “LiFT provides these life-saving resources that allow these individuals to learn and succeed. I’m humbled by the support from the City Wide system to come together and help spread a massive ripple.”

LiFT’s mission is to inspire and empower people with neurodiversity to learn, thrive, and succeed. The organization’s goal is to level the playing field for individuals with learning differences and neurodiversity by providing them with exceptional academics, life skills, career training and opportunities to strengthen social skills and building meaningful friendships.

“LiFT was overwhelmed and incredibly humbled by this level of support from City Wide. To see a company make it part of their culture to give back, to recognize an organization improving the lives of an underserved population, and to promote a national mobilized effort to support a united cause was truly awe inspiring,” said Shawn Naugle, CEO of LiFT. “Having recently celebrated our 10th year in operation, LiFT has never seen this kind of philanthropic support from a community partner and could not be more thankful and proud to have a team like City Wide standing shoulder-to-shoulder to promote the LiFT Motto of ‘Change a Life, Change the World.'”

City Wide has made a name for itself in major U.S. cities and Canada by streamlining facility solutions for more than 20 interior and exterior services for commercial facilities including janitorial, disinfecting, handyman services and parking lot maintenance. Taking the onus from building owners and property management businesses that typically choose separate companies for each task, City Wide eases the selection and management processes for its clients.
