Merry Maids® Honors Scheller Family with Prestigious Founder’s Award


April 1, 2024


The Merry Maids® Founder’s Award is a testament to the legacy of outstanding achievement. It honors franchises that demonstrate significant revenue growth, high employee satisfaction and retention, and active contributions to the network. This year, it is proudly presented to Nathan and Elizabeth Scheller, whose operations in Evansville, Indiana, and Owensboro, Kentucky, have become shining examples of exceptional service and performance within the Merry Maids network.

Nathan’s initial role as a branch manager in 2014 provided him with valuable insights into the business, which, along with guidance from the previous owner, spurred him to acquire the franchise in 2015. His wife, Elizabeth, joined him in this endeavor, leaving her corporate position to help grow their family business. Their expansion into Owensboro in 2017 marked a significant milestone in their journey within the cleaning service sector.

The Schellers have overseen an impressive 5.5% organic growth annually, adding an average of 10 new customers each year. Their dedication to excellence is evident in their stellar Google Review average of 4.9 from nearly 130 reviews, underscoring their commitment to customer satisfaction.

Beyond their own franchises, Nathan and Elizabeth Scheller are integral to the Merry Maids network. Their consistent participation in every Annual Conference and Regional Meeting, Nathan’s involvement in the NAC and RFC, and Elizabeth’s contributions to the IT Council reflect their commitment to the brand and its community. Their willingness to mentor new franchisees and team members exemplifies their leadership and generosity, making them deserving recipients of the Founder’s Award.
