Week In Review: April 13th - 17th

Kirsten Engels: Facility Services Manager

Hi again from the South Metro,

These last couple of months have been very busy for us at City Wide. We have started many new accounts throughout the Twin Cities, and have been working hard to get these buildings looking their best. Our night management staff plays a big part in making sure these accounts get started off on the right foot.

With spring finally here, we are beginning to think about spring cleaning options for our customers. Window washing and carpet cleaning are two jobs keeping us busy in my territory. With the sun and warmer temps, it's the perfect time to get going on this type of maintenance.  There's nothing better than having a nice, clean building!

In my personal time, I am enjoying time on the course. I took my clubs out for the first time a couple weeks ago. The courses opened in March, so we decided to give it a go.  Little did we know, it was still going to feel like winter out. Thankfully, when I went out last weekend, it was almost 70 degrees!  

Hope you all enjoy the warm weather!

Week In Review: Mar 30th - Apr 3rd

Tyler DuBord: Facility Services Manager

Spring is upon us, here in Minnesota.  Bring on the beautiful temps and the green grass!  Being the big golfer that I am, the green grass can't come soon enough for me either.  Hopefully, the lack of snow this year will lend a quick recovery to the greens and fairways, allowing for a quick return to the course. Historically, we've been able to begin hitting the links mid-April, but most courses around the north east have already opened!

With the warmer weather and the quickly diminished snow, comes Spring maintenance projects. Floor waxing, carpet cleaning and window cleaning make up most of our work, but we also specialize in lot sweeping and repair.  A few other services that we provide are crack seal, overlays, patching and line striping.  We also provide concrete work.  Just ask for a quote and we'd be happy to provide a free estimate for you!

I am happy to announce our newest night manager, Ivan!  He has joined our team, specifically in my northeast territory. Ivan has already been with us for a few weeks and is just wrapping up the training process. I look forward to working with you, Ivan!!

Week In Review: Mar 23rd - 27th

Jarrad Nickolite: Facility Services Manager

Hello again from the West Metro:

It sure is nice to see the sun again!  Things seem to be steady at City Wide, with Spring moving in.  Now is the time to start thinking spring services.  We offer a wide variety of services this time of year, such as: lawn care & landscaping, exterior window cleaning, parking lot sealing & recoating, and carpet cleaning & floor work.  Reach out to your FMS for pricing and scheduling.   

Beginning April 1st, I have a new car dealership coming on board, so I am excited to get going at this new account.

Recently, I finished up with my first Bassmaster Open tournament in Jackson, Mississippi.  Let’s just say it didn’t go quite as planned.  None the less, I had a good time and learned a lot about the lake.
