City Wide is the franchise opportunity for entrepreneurial sales, marketing, and management professionals. City Wide is one of the country’s most professional B2B facility service companies, providing building maintenance services to thousands of commercial buildings throughout the United States.

The City Wide business model capitalizes on the popular business trend of “outsourcing.” Our 20+ services are in high-demand by nearly every commercial property within the exclusive large-market territories offered by City Wide. Automatically renewing contracts provide compounding growth for your organization in a virtually recession-proof industry.

As a franchise owner, your primary responsibility is selling accounts and managing the client/contractor relationships. The City Wide system is designed to create a great quality of life within a business that has few employees and requires very little equipment expense or inventory expense.

By utilizing certified independent contractors, who specialize in the services you sell, you will spend your time selling contracts, managing relationships and building your organization. You do not spend your time recruiting, hiring, training, and supervising hourly employees or doing the work yourself. This is an important distinction that separates City Wide from other franchise business opportunities.
