Team 1 of The Maids in Baton Rouge selected for award


Jennifer Easter, Kayla Owens and Cristina Ramirez Gomez, Team 1 at The Maids in Baton Rouge, La., was recognized as the 2018 Team of the Year at The Maids International Growth Summit in Omaha, Neb., March 30, 2019.

The Team of the Year award honors and recognizes The Maids’ team, which consistently displays both exceptional quality and superior customer experience. Team 1 was chosen from approximately 700 teams among the over 180 franchises throughout the United States and Canada. The award was presented at The Maids International’s annual Growth Summit, a conference where The Maids franchise owners from across the U.S. and Canada participate in business sessions, share ideas with other franchisees, and recognize outstanding employees and franchise owners. Team 1 was nominated for the award by franchisees Dean and Charlotte Blanchard, franchisees of The Maids in Baton Rouge.

Together Team 1 has over 33 years of experience at The Maids. Easter is the team leader, Owens the assistant team leader and Ramirez Gomez is a team member. The team works flawlessly together, and one benefitting factor might be because Easter and Owens are a mother-daughter duo. They actually drive almost 160 miles roundtrip to the Baton Rouge office and back each day. The team is recognized by their customers for their dedication and consistent quality. They are known for never having a bad day and working like a “well-oiled machine.” The results are shown in their customer satisfaction scores and online reviews.

“We truly care about our customers,” said Easter.” We know every customer is important and try hard to make them happy every day.”

Donna S., a customer of The Maids, used these words to describe Team 1, “Thorough, attention to detail, immaculate, kind, friendly, always trying to achieve perfection, perfectly made beds, super clean floors, great job vacuuming, and always trustworthy!”

Nancy S., another customer of Team 1 at The Maids said, “What I like about Jennifer and her team is that they are about more than cleaning house. They genuinely care about the people who live in the house. They take great pride in their work, are very trustworthy and I love to see them coming. They are always friendly and smiling. They are the best!”

“Team 1 is a standout crew and role models in our office,” said Dean Blanchard, franchise owner of The Maids in Baton Rouge. “In our eyes, as well as in their customers’ eyes, they are very deserving of this award.”
