Molly Maid Sudbury was recognized for its unique accomplishments and excellence in business performance, community service and brand involvement at the Canadian Franchise Association’s Awards Gala last week.  

The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) introduced the Franchisee of the Year Award to celebrate the success of top-performing franchisees, the organization said in a news release.

Step-sisters Kelsi Ashley and Erin Levesque, both of whom started working in the business with their parents prior to taking over the Franchise in 2017, received the silver medal in the non-traditional category.  

“We are honoured to receive this prestigious award and share it with our team,” said Levesque. “As a second generation, family run business, my sister and I extend our sincerest gratitude to our parents and our families for their support over the years. We also want to thank Molly Maid Canada and the tremendous support and guidance we have received from the team at the corporate Support Office.”

“We want to recognize our exceptional team members, who are like family to us,” said Ashley. “Without our team, we would have never been able to accomplish all that we have. Our team members are the real faces of Molly Maid Sudbury, working diligently each and every day to strengthen our positive presence in our community. They work so hard to uphold our commitment to stellar customer service and 100 per cent satisfaction guarantee and ultimately, to give our customers the gift of time.”

Every year, Molly Maid Sudbury participates in Christmas in July, a food drive program that assists the local food bank in stocking up their food supply. They also participate in the annual Molly Maid Cares Coat Drive, where customers are invited to donate gently used winter apparel.

In addition, they participate in the MS Walk and are looking forward to taking part in the 2019 Fierté Sudbury Pride Parade.

Aaron Abrams, president and CEO of Molly Maid Canada, also recognizes the sisters' achievement.  

“We could not be any more proud of Kelsi, Erin and the Molly Maid Sudbury Team,” Abrams said in the news release.

“While this award recognizes the incredible contributions they make to the Sudbury community, it does not truly recognize how hard and smart they work in their business. This an exemplary Molly Maid franchise, filled with true ambassadors of our very proud brand. Our entire Molly Maid family is proud of them for this wonderful achievement.”
