City Wide Inspired to “Ripple On” at Annual Franchise Convention

Home Office Leadership and Franchisees Celebrate 15th Annual Franchise Convention and Awards Ceremony

LENEXA, Kan. – City Wide Maintenance, the nation’s leading building maintenance management company, hosted its 15th annual franchise convention and awards ceremony at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa in Clearwater, Florida from February 25-27, 2018.

With the inspirational theme of “Ripple On,” this year’s convention encouraged franchisees to learn from one another’s success and continue making waves in the building maintenance industry. To commend the brand’s impressive growth, the home office team and representatives from an impressive 95% of all franchise locations also celebrated key accomplishments from 2017, such as opening seven new offices, bringing the total to 54 franchise locations throughout the United States.

Equal parts fun and inspiring, the three-day convention invited City Wide franchisees from across the nation to engage during a variety of golf and evening activities, relaxation time, presentations, roundtables and educational breakout sessions. Among the learning opportunities was a series of high-level training sessions that focused on fundamental business development topics including client retention, growing sales, recruiting employees and other tangible skills to achieve continued success and increase revenue.

“After 15 consecutive years, this has been our most encouraging annual convention to date,” said Jeff Oddo, president of City Wide. “At every gathering, I’m constantly impressed by the thought-provoking strategy discussions and sense of collaboration between our home office and franchisees. I have the utmost confidence that our entire franchise system left with more advanced, creative tactics to implement into their business plans, and I’m eager to watch their inspiration unfold in the months to come.”

As always, an awards ceremony wrapped up the annual convention by giving special recognition to franchisees and their team members who preformed exceptionally in 2017. City Wide’s leadership team presented 16 different awards to a total of 64 winning franchise locations and individuals based on various achievements in sales, revenue generation, performance and other operations metrics.
