Week In Review: Nov 16th - 20th

Jarrad Nickolite: Facility Services Manager

Hello from the West Metro,

Things have been relatively steady on this side of town.  I have been finalizing a few snow bids with customers reaching out to me this year.  The great part about it is, they are not new customers to City Wide, they are current customers who are reaching out for other services aside from janitorial.  These extra services keep us FSMs on our toes!

I also just wrapped up a large window job in the Woodbury area and I’m very thankful the weather held out for us.   We are still keeping busy with floor work/carpet cleaning and now is a great time to have this completed in your facilities, before the snow starts flying.

Now that the fishing season is over, I’m trying to figure out what to do with my time.  I wish I was a deer hunter, sounds like some of my customers and colleagues are having a blast with that this year.  I’ll be looking forward to the holidays to spend time with family and friends.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and please, travel safely.

Week In Review: Nov 9th - 13th

Joel Willert: Facility Services Manager

Hello from the Central Metro!

As I have been transitioning into my full customer base, I continue to learn more each day. There are roughly 45 accounts that I have fully taken over since I started. Learning the ins and outs of everything that goes into just one account is amazing. When City Wide starts an account, customers don't only get our janitorial services, but they also get a full maintenance schedule to keep their facility looking top notch, all year long.  City Wide strives to be the best, and we welcome the opportunity to provide a competitive quote for any service customers may need.

Nightly janitorial makes up the majority of our services, but we also offer many non-janitorial services as well. This week, I have been busy with a large construction clean, window washing, and different types of floor work. City Wide has had the luxury of fulfilling the needs of multiple services that extend outside of our nightly cleaning.

In my personal life, I have put the boat away for the season. Now, my focus is to spend time in the woods and head back home to Wisconsin for the hunting opener next weekend.  If the weather stays the way it has been, it should be a great weekend to sit in the tree stand. 

As always, if there are any services that City Wide can offer, please let us know. We are always happy to provide a competitive quote.

Week In Review: Nov 2nd - 6th

Alex Underwood: Facility Services Manager

Greeting from the Northwest Metro,

I hope everyone is enjoying the fall and that you're getting ready for the snow to start flying.  In the Northwest metro, we have been focused on wrapping up many exterior projects for customers and making sure they are prepared for the changing weather.

Many of my customers are also squeezing in a final window cleaning or sidewalk/alley pressure washing job, to remove all of summer's build up.

All of us FSMs are beginning to discuss a plan for organizing detail cleaning or special projects to be completed while our customers' offices are shut down around the holidays.  Holidays are a great time to allow us into the building to complete the large projects that have been put off, due to the fear of interrupting the work day. 

Personally, I have been really busy this fall. Wedding season is almost over, which is leaving me some time to get the house ready for winter and squeeze in a couple waterfowl and upland bird hunting trips. We spend a lot of our open weekends out in the Western MN farm land.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the fall weather and as always, if there is anything our FSM team can do to help, please let us know.
