Week In Review: Dec 21st - 25th

Mitch Brunette: Director Of Operations

As always, with the holiday season beginning in Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve less than 24 hours away, I find myself fascinated with how quickly it sweeps right past us!  It has been a great holiday season thus far!  We were able to get away for 5 days in California, spending time in San Francisco to visit Alcatraz, tour the warf, and have a private tour at a winery in Napa Valley.  It was a great trip! Then it was back to reality, getting projects done at the office, before wrapping up 2015.

Reflecting back on 2015, we’ve experienced a lot, helped a lot of new clients, and learned plenty about our organization through our growth.  I would like to thank our entire operations team, day & night, for the efforts they put in and the experience they provide their clients.  Thank you to the sales team, Tyler & Dustin, for keeping us busy and finding us new locations to manage.  Thank you to our admin team, whom supports operations and sales. Finally, thank you to our clients, for the business and ongoing support.  Have a safe end to the year as we wrap up with the holiday, and enjoy the upcoming snow this weekend!

Week In Review: Dec 14th - 18th

Dustin Hayes: Sales Associate

Hello from the North side of the Metro!!!

I’m sure everyone is enjoying this odd weather. J It has been a whirlwind, getting the family ready for Christmas. My two boys are very, very excited for Santa to arrive, and my wife and I are doing our best to keep their minds off of it! Being the college football fanatics we are in our house, this time of year is spent very anxiously awaiting the big bowls...and we go through football withdrawal. At least we can get our fix from the Vikings playing (or backing) their way into/out of the playoffs.

It's been an amazing ride, since joining this team last month! Every day is a great learning experience. We have some unbelievable Facility Services Managers, that take great care of their clients. Another Facility Services Manager has also joined the team, which will only add to our level of service. With the snow looming (at some point) they can take great care of you, with snow removal or haul away.

Personally, I have enjoyed getting out and meeting potential clients throughout the metro. I’m excited to see what the turn of the year holds for us at City Wide.

Happy Holidays to everyone, and be safe on those slippery roads!

Week In Review: Nov 30th - Dec 4th

Tyler DuBord: Facility Services Manager

Greetings from the North Metro!

Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving Holiday. My wife and I made the trek out to western MN, to spend time with her family, where we ate a lot of turkey, relaxed, and watched the Vikings beat the Falcons! It’s a 3 hour drive, but it's all worth it, while in good company and enjoying good food made from scratch by the family.

Monday morning, we woke up to 4+ inches of plowable snow, making this the first push for our snow removal crews. We have very competitive pricing, so if you had any issues with your current vendor during this first snowfall event, please inquire about a bid for your property. It can snow all it wants, as I love the snow and snowmobiling. Last season was pretty frustrating for me, with the lack of snow. I think I rode the sled maybe once or twice, making it a disappointing year in that regard.

Any regular readers out there will notice that Joel has been with us for several months now and has transitioned into his role with exceptional confidence. The great part of my job, is to help train and grow with new managers that come on board and take over part of my previously existing territory. It was great working alongside Joel for the first couple months, as we made the transition. I’ve been able to assist in getting him acclimated to those accounts that I’ve managed and established relationships with over the years. I have the upmost confidence in Joel and trust he will service our company well, as he move towards the next phase in his position with City Wide.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and stays safe out on the slick roads!
