Three TruBlue Franchisees Recognized with National Awards
Three TruBlue Total House Care franchisees were recently recognized at the TruBlue National Conference in Las Vegas. All three owners continuously demonstrate not only a commitment to business growth and community service, but also a willingness to help grow the national franchise by working closely with the corporate office to test new services and technologies, make suggestions on growth opportunities and more. Here’s a little about each award and each winner:
Franchise of the Year and President’s Award
Kay and Tim Diemont, the local owners of TruBlue of Yorktown, earned the TruBlue Franchisee of the Year Award and a TruBlue President’s Award. Tim and Kay opened TruBlue of Yorktown in the Spring of 2013 and they’ve been able to grow the business by about 25 percent each year since they opened. In addition to working with residents and property owners, the Diemonts also work with military housing departments, senior apartment complexes and apartment buildings.

James Puopolo, the owner of TruBlue of Wakefield, was recognized with a President’s Award.

James opened TruBlue of Wakefield in March of 2017 and broke the franchise’s first-year sales record. He then grew the business another 50 percent from year one to year two. He said being recognized with the President’s Award is an exciting milestone as he looks to future growth.
