The Maids of St. Louis Under New Ownership

David and Lynn Jacobson of Phoenix, Ariz., are broadening their business ownership purchasing a franchise more than 1,500 miles away from them.

They recently purchased the Maids Home Services of St. Louis, the residential cleaning franchise that specializes in cleaning for health, located at 1528 South Big Bend Boulevard.

The Jacobsons also own The Maids of Phoenix, Ariz., and have operated that franchise for the past nine years, which gives them a head start in experience and business ownership. By concentrating on high quality service and customer satisfaction, they have earned several awards from The Maids corporate office. They were named franchise of the year in 2007, and one of their field managers was named manager of the year in 2008. In addition, based on the results of an independent national research firm, the Jacobsons' customers consistently rank them among the top three of all The Maids franchises for quality, customer service and customer loyalty.

David and Lynn said they are excited about expanding their business to St. Louis, even during tough economic times.

"We built our business by mentoring our staff, providing a consistent, high quality product and focusing on customer satisfaction," David Jacobson said. "By adhering to these same principles, we hope to grow the St. Louis business one satisfied client at a time."

David has been working in St. Louis while Lynn remains in Phoenix. They are both excited to work in a new city.

"St. Louis is a beautiful city and has so much to offer," Lynn Jacobson said. "We look forward to splitting our time between here and Phoenix."
