Franchise Interviews Meets Jeff Oddo, CEO of City Wide Maintenance Franchise

We have a great show today.  We are meeting Jeff Oddo, the CEO of City Wide Maintenance, a building maintenance franchise which was started by his father. Jeff is credited with turning the business into a franchise. He is very passionate about expanding the brand and making an impact on the communities they serve. Jeff will talk about what he calls the “Ripple effect”

Founded in 1961, City Wide has become synonymous with building maintenance in its home Kansas City market and the 50-plus U.S. regions where it has grown through franchising since 2001. A single-source solution for all building maintenance services, City Wide contracts with independent contractors to give clients access to dozens of interior and exterior services. City Wide simplifies the maintenance matters that mean most to building owners, operators, and management companies, easing the time, stress, and resources typically required to oversee an entire facility.  In part 2, we play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
