I’ve mostly worked in the senior community providing non-medical, in-home care. By putting the focus on the house and property, TruBlue is a great supplement to those services.
Tyler, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
With the launch of his TruBlue Total House Care franchise in Tyler, Texas, Scott Jacobs is bringing together his work experience and his personal passion to assist home and property owners in a new and unique way. With TruBlue, clients can get all the help they want to care for their homes without all the usual hassles.
With just one phone call, a TruBlue client can receive maid service, lawn care, routine and emergency repairs as well as holiday decorating, gutter cleaning and whatever else is needed.
“It’s one-stop shopping,” Jacobs said. “A lot of companies do one of those services, but none brings everything together like TruBlue does.”
That concept of service was the primary reason for his decision to buy the franchise, he said.
“I was looking for a challenge – something that would fit my personality, background and passion,” Jacobs said. “I’ve always been a people person and liked helping others. My business philosophy has always been to be honest and provide high quality services to earn my customers’ trust and provide them with peace of mind."
“When I considered TruBlue, it all came together because my hobbies have always centered on the home – yard work, landscaping, repairs, upgrades, remodeling, designing and decorating. TruBlue was the perfect choice.”
Jacobs’ enthusiasm is matched by that of his operations manager, Tammy Dennis.
“My background is in sales and marketing, mostly in home health care and rehab,” she said. “When I heard about TruBlue, I immediately could see the potential. I’ve mostly worked in the senior community providing non-medical, in-home care. By putting the focus on the house and property, TruBlue is a great supplement to those services.”
Larsen Sharp, vice president of operations for TruBlue, said company officials reached the same conclusions before deciding to add the franchise opportunity.
“Our Home Helpers franchise assists people with their personal needs,” he said. “What we found was that often the house itself had become a problem. By putting our focus there, homeowners and their families gained peace of mind about the safety and security of the home. Seniors wouldn’t have to give up the house they loved to move into a condo or apartment just because they can no longer take care of it the way they once did. With TruBlue, they can remain in that home for as long as they want.”
After the franchise launched, the company learned that the one-call-does-it-all concept was popular with a host of other clients as well – especially busy families.
“People are busy,” Sharp said. “Families are juggling schedules for Mom, Dad, each of the kids, and often parents and grandparents. Life can get really hectic. With our system, families can eliminate tasks that they don’t enjoy or don’t have the time or ability to do correctly, so they can focus their attention on the activities and events they prefer.”
Dennis said that broad-based appeal was obvious to her as well.
“As a busy adult myself, I immediately ‘got it’ because it’s just the society we live in,” she said. “Like a lot of people, I don’t have an 8-to-5 job. I’ve got a spouse and two children, including a teenager. We have to set aside time to get the household chores done. I think a lot of families need help managing their households. And, one of the best things about TruBlue is that clients select which services they want. As a mom who has to live on a budget, I think it’s great that you can get the help you need without breaking the bank. TruBlue appeals to a wide variety of households.”
Like Jacobs, both she and Sharp noted the convenience of TruBlue as well.
“We have tons of companies offering home and lawn care services, but nothing as comprehensive as TruBlue,” she said. “Like Scott said, one call takes care of everything indoors and out.”
Sharp said that convenience has been a major selling point.
“Clients love it,” he said. “They don’t have to contact multiple agencies, schedule interviews, take bids, supervise the work, and go through all the hassles of finding different people for different jobs. We’ve done all that for them. They and their families – often children who live across the country – appreciate having a reliable, single point of contact. TruBlue makes sure the work is done correctly by the right person at the right time. And all TruBlue employees are bonded and insured and pass background checks.”
