The Maids of Lake County Reaches Milestone
Less than a year after its grand opening, The Maids of Lake County, Ill., has officially serviced its 200th customer. Owned by Bart Zuurdeeg, The Maids of Lake County started making homes glisten in February of 2012, and has been doing so ever since.
“We’ve had a great start,” shares Zuurdeeg. “It’s been fun, exciting and challenging. I’ve discovered that even in a down economy, there’s still a real need for our service.”
Located at 1037 N. Corporate Circle in Grayslake, Ill., The Maids of Lake County serves the communities of Grayslake, Great Lakes, Gurnee, Lake Bluff, Libertyville, Mundelein, North Chicago, Round Lake, Round Lake Beach, Vernon Hills, Waukegan, Ill.
Part of what has made The Maids of Lake County successful are the notably creative ways in which Zuurdeeg has reached his customer base.
“There wasn’t a lot of brand awareness in the area,” shares Zuurdeeg. “I really think we’ve elevated the brand. I’ve done a lot of different, out of the box type stuff like advertise on the Metra train platforms. It’s been extremely gratifying to watch our business grow. We’re absolutely thrilled to be here in Grayslake.”
Before becoming a The Maids franchise owner Zuurdeeg spent 25 years in sales management at a leading beverage supplier.
“The time was right for me to use the knowledge I gained to run my own business,” shares Zuurdeeg. “The Maids, hands down, had the best system and really showed its commitment to giving customers the best possible experience.”
Zuurdeeg and his teams focus on providing exceptional service to every customer.
“I’m not the least bit surprised by Bart’s rapid growth,” shares Dave Cohen, a business coach at The Maids’ corporate office in Omaha, Neb. “Bart and his teams are an incredible group of people.
