Nick Torres Receives The Maids Home Services Manager of the Year Award

Nick Torres was rewarded for his nearly five years of diligent work at The Maids of Arlington, Va.: He was named Manager of the Year at The Maids' 2009 National Convention in Omaha, Neb., on April 18. The Maids is a residential cleaning franchise that cleans for health.

The Manager of the Year award recognizes a franchise manager who has gone above and beyond his or her job duties, and stands out from the other managers of more than 164 The Maid franchises. Every year The Maids franchise owners from across the U.S. and Canada attend the national convention to attend business sessions, share ideas with other franchises, and recognize outstanding employees and franchises. Torres was nominated by franchise partner Mark Gilbert, owner of The Maids of Sterling, Va.

"This is such great recognition," Torres said. "I am so excited to have received this award."

He received a plaque and $1000. Gilbert said Torres is a deserving recipient.

"Nick is someone who I know I can always trust to do a great job," Gilbert said. "And no matter what, he always remains upbeat and has a wonderful attitude about everything. Not every employee is like that. He has truly earned this award."

Torres was also excited about the award because his mother was able to attend the convention and see him receive it.

"I'm glad she was here to share this moment with me," he said.
