City Wide Facility Solutions Named 2023 Best Buy in Exclusive Franchise Times Ranking

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — City Wide Facility Solutions has been named a best buy in franchising by Franchise Times as part of its annual Zor Awards program designed to recognize brands in 10 of the industry’s most exciting and accessible categories.

Designed to answer the question, “What’s the best franchise to buy?”, the Zor Awards is an industry-exclusive award program appearing in the March 2023 issue of Franchise Times. The Zor Awards aids individuals exploring franchising by showing them how to make a selection using an astute business mindset. 

The Franchise Times editorial staff selected 10 industry categories designed to reflect industry momentum and appealing segments within franchising. This year’s categories—presented as lively takes on hot industry segments—are Sweet Tooth (dessert/treat franchises), Breaking Bread (sandwich franchises), By the Slice (pizza franchises), Dirty Jobs (disaster restoration franchises), Office Space (commercial cleaning franchises), Sweat It Out (gym franchises), Aging America (senior care franchises), Healing Touch (medical franchises), Fashion Forward (clothing franchises) and Window Shopping (specialty retail franchises)

As the largest management company in the building maintenance industry, City Wide Facility Solutions came out on top in the Zor Awards Office Space category. Gross sales at franchise locations ranged from $441,131 to $30.4 million in 2021, with an average unit volume of $6.7 million. Finalists were drawn from the Franchise Times Top 500 database, which is a 24-year-old research tool covering more than 650 U.S.-based franchise systems. The research team then examined six key financial metrics pulled from each brand’s franchise disclosure document, with a focus on profitability for the franchisee. That process also included editorial examination of management teams, product or service offerings, unit openings and closings, recent litigation and financial backing of the brand. 

After selecting a winner in each category, the editorial team conducted interviews with top-performing franchisees in each brand to share advice and lessons learned.

Below is the list of winners of the 2023 Franchise Times Zor Awards by category:

  • Sweet Tooth (dessert/treat franchises): Jeremiah’s Italian Ice
  • Breaking Bread (sandwich franchises): Capriotti’s
  • By the Slice (pizza franchises): Donatos Pizza
  • Dirty Jobs (disaster restoration franchises): 1-800 Water Damage
