Week in Review: July 25th - 29th

Kelly Mansfield - Business Development:
Another week down here at City Wide Maintenance, and a good one at that! I still can't believe that August is right around the corner... seems like yesterday was just the beginning of summer.

First off, I'd like to say congratulations to Mitch, his wife Liz, Greg, and several other clients and colleagues who competed in the first annual Minnesota Warrior Dash held at Afton Alps this weekend. Back in February we all signed up and before we knew it, race weekend was upon us. It was ONE TOUGH race, but oh so much fun. We will for sure be racing in the Warrior Dash again next year!

I've been busy with the usual proposal duties this week, as well as editing a few videos for our Facility Service Managers. Mitch submitted a video showing a crack repair project completed for one of our clients with a large warehouse. You can see Mitch's video here.

Tyler submitted a video that shows the job of an FSM as they inspect every area of our clients' facilities. He inspected a client's restroom on camera and it passed with flying colors :-) Tyler's video will be up next week-- stay tuned!

As far as this weekend goes... Greg and I will be in "vacation mode" shortly, as we leave for the Mexican Riviera on Monday for our best friend's wedding. We have never been south of the border, so to say that we're excited is an understatement!!

It is nice to know that all of our employees here at City Wide are dependable with a "take charge" work ethic. Being gone for a week does not worry us as we know that the office is in good hands! Nos vemos en una semana! (see you in a week :-))


Mitch Brunette - Facility Service Manager:
Another busy week here in the south metro at City Wide! I have been flying around town seeing my clients face to face and trying to help solve any issues they may have in their building.

We have completed some extra charge projects, restarted accounts, and paid some extra special attention to some buildings due to some serious VIP’s coming to town, including the Mayor of Minneapolis and some new owners at properties. Thanks to my night manager's hard work! We've been able to get buildings ready and solve issues that the clients were experiencing.

A unique project that I was working on went up in a video that is on our blog, you can see it here or underneath our Video Projects header to the right-- the video is entitled Warehouse Crack Repair. We brought in a two part epoxy and filled in several cracks that needed repair. Other projects that I overseed this week was some hard floor care wax work which is pretty typical for us to do but always appreciated.

Outside of City Wide its been a busy week and month. Several of my friends have gotten married or will be getting married, so I have been at bachelor parties, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, and weddings themselves filling up most of my weekends which has been fun but hectic.

This last weekend Kelly, Greg, my wife Liz, a few of my friends, and I participated in the Warrior Dash. You can see some of Kelly's pictures above. I will be training harder for next year's race. I'd like to shave 7 minutes off my time by learning how to run up the hills faster!
