The Maids International announced today that Gale St. John, owner of The Maids serving the five New York City boroughs, a professional residential cleaning service, earned the President’s Club Award for outstanding achievement in franchise sales and growth during the past year.

The awards were presented recently at The Maids Growth Summit in Omaha, Neb. The coveted award recognizes not only the owners but also the entire staff, including managers and team members. Gale St. John was selected from more than 160 The Maids franchise owners throughout the United States and Canada.

“Being recognized as a President’s Club Award recipient is truly an honor,” said Ms. St. John. “My staff works very hard to exceed our customers’ expectations. This award is a validation of their efforts.”

The Maids uses a unique four-member team approach, assigning each member a different task in the home. To ensure every clean meets The Maids’ high standards of excellence, every team is supervised by a team leader who completes a comprehensive quality assurance checklist following each clean. As added peace of mind, all team members are bonded and insured and all services are backed by a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.

“My business continues to grow because we give families relief from their hectic schedules,” said Ms. St. John. “My teams are able to provide stressed and time-pressed families a hassle-free way to check at least one item off their to-do lists.”
