Week In Review: April 20th - 24th

Tyler Olson: Sales Executive

The last month or so has been a busy and fun time.  On the work side of life, there have been a number of new relationships created.  We have started cleaning for several new businesses.  One that stands out in my mind, is a local high-end car dealership.  I spent time out there when our crew began, to help ensure the initial cleans started off on the right foot.  From this experience, I learned a lot about degreasing and auto scrubbing floors, that I didn't know before.  I really enjoy the occasional outing to work with the crews, whom I sell services for.

On the personal side, I've had a ton of fun at home!  My daughter is growing more and more each day, and it is so fun watching her learn new things.  She recently figured out how to crawl and pull herself up on furniture.  I cant believe how much fun I have with an 8 month old!

Beyond that, I just returned from a great trip to the Dominican Republic with a hand full of fellow City Wide personnel from our market, among others.  We spent 5 days relaxing by the pool, swimming in the ocean, and getting some fun beach activities in.  The highlight of the activities, had to be kayaking in the ocean.  There were some 5-7ft waves that we were able to ride on the way back in!

Can’t wait to see what the next few months have in store!

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!!
