4 New TruBlue Locations!
TruBlue is experiencing record growth this year. In the past quarter we have welcomed 5 new owners into our TruBlue family. Our new locations span as south as St. Petersburg Florida, as north as Des Moines Iowa, and as far east as Colorado Springs. We are also excited for the many new locations that are currently under development.
The first location to open this quarter is TruBlue of Colorado Springs and North Colorado Springs. These locations are owned and operated by Obie Pilkington. Pilkington is a veteran who served a 20 year career in the Military, and was ready to become his own boss. Near the end of his Army career, Pilkington was battling cancer and saw first hand how many seniors and veterans need better house care. When he found TruBlue it was the missing puzzle piece. He soon signed with us and he's excited to support his local community.
Our second TruBlue is Winter Garden, located in the greater Orlando Florida area. Michael Holton is the proud owner of this location. His prior background was in project management with IBM. As a busy family man, Holton saw exactly how crazy homeownership can be. There’s always a different person for every job, and tracking down the right guy is a tricky job. With TruBlue, Holton knew he could use his operations background to be the one-stop solution for home maintenance in his community.
In St. Petersburg Florida, Spencer and Angela Brooks have opened their first TruBlue. This married couple saw first hand the desire for age-in-place home modifications. This desire sparked their initial interest in TruBlue. Their business will officially open in early November. This power duo will be a great edition to the sunshine state and is looking forward to making a positive impact.
Our last team to open their own TruBlue is JD Nelson & Scott Edwards in West Des Moines, Iowa. These two are not strangers to being business partners. In fact they already own two successful businesses of their own in Home Inspections, and Mold & Odor Removal. TruBlue provides extra services that their previous operations were lacking. With their enhanced range of services, and previous ownership experience, we expect to see big things out of our first Iowa franchise.
If you're thinking of opening a TruBlue, the total investment estimate for a TruBlue Total House Care franchise ranges from $65,050–$91,400. To learn more about franchising with TruBlue, please visit https://trubluefranchise.com/.
