Lenexa’s City Wide Maintenance Expands Outside the U.S.

Lenexa-based City Wide Maintenance is continuing its push for growth with an expansion to Canada.

Its franchisor, City Wide Franchise, signed an agreement to open the building maintenance company’s first Canadian location in Ontario — the country’s most populous province.

City Wide started franchising in 2001, and last year, franchisee profits grew 61 percent, City Wide President Jeff Oddo said during a previous interview. The Lenexa company’s revenue grew by $50 million in 2018, and it’s on pace to hit $300 million in revenue this year.

Oddo plans to transform the company into the nation’s largest franchise cleaning company by 2026. It currently has franchisees in 56 territories across the U.S.

Founded in 1961, City Wide provides a variety of services, including snow removal, janitorial cleaning, supply management, landscaping and window washing.

City Wide along with its sister companies Oddo Development and BASYS Processing rank No. 71 on the Kansas City Business Journal‘s Top 150 Private Companies List, with $115.26 million in 2018 revenue.
