ISSA names first franchise member
Building maintenance company City Wide Franchise, has announced that it is the first franchise member of the ISSA. Through a special membership package, the company can now offer its franchise partners the opportunity to join the ISSA at a significantly discounted rate.
"The ISSA is proud to welcome City Wide Franchise to our association," said Rosie Rangel, director of industry outreach for the ISSA. "We appreciate City Wide Franchise's efforts to improve access to industry news and information for its franchise partners.
Every new City Wide franchise partner that joins the ISSA helps us advance our goal of changing the way the world views cleaning. We hope our partnership will result in increased professionalism and knowledge sharing within the cleaning and maintenance industry."
City Wide franchise partners that join the association will now have access to various training courses and materials, networking opportunities and marketing collateral at a discounted rate through the franchisor.
City Wide has made a name for itself in major US cities by streamlining commercial facilities and maintenance management of more than 20 services through a collection of service providers and alliance partners, including floorcare, window cleaning, janitorial supplies, car park maintenance and several others. Taking the onus off building owners and property management companies that typically have to choose separate companies for each task, City Wide eases the selection and management processes for its clients.
Founded in 1961, City Wide has become synonymous with building maintenance in its home Kansas City market and the 40-plus US regions where it has grown through franchising since 2001. A single-source solution for all building maintenance services, it contracts with independent service providers to give clients access to dozens of interior and exterior services.
