Our philosophy starts with our owner, Jeff Oddo, who is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of as many members of the City Wide community as possible. We call this our ripple effect which impacts our franchisees, our clients, our contractors, our vendors and our employees.
Today our organization’s mission is fully committed to helping our community members be the very best they can be by saving time and solving problems for all.
Our goal is to be the largest building maintenance solutions company in the world and a top 100 franchise concept. City Wide is already the number one sales and management concept for people who want to focus on sales and the client experience. Our results will cause a positive ripple so large from serving others that it will not only change the industry, but also the lives of millions of people.
City Wide offers an onboarding plan that includes online training and coaching in preparation for in-person training, two weeks of intense classroom and hands-on training in Kansas City, and ongoing business coaching facilitated by a Business Performance Coach and a team of specialists. Franchisees positively report on the ongoing training and support they receive from City Wide Franchise.
City Wide manages more than 20 different building maintenance services (e.g. lawn and landscaping, security, handyman services, janitorial) for commercial properties. City Wide specializes in sales leadership and providing world-class client experiences while our independent contractors focus on the services themselves.

Most City Wide franchisees do not have prior experience in commercial building maintenance services. What they do have in common is a desire to help people and a drive to be successful. Common backgrounds of City Wide franchisees include sales executives, management professionals, HR professionals, previous business owners and CEOS, and other business-to-business leadership-based careers.
