CASPER, WY (PRWEB) April 04, 2016 - It takes a lot of courage to open a business, especially when the franchise you’re buying covers a 400-mile stretch. But when Kendra and Ed Good bought that territory, they saw the space as an opportunity to grow rather than just an expanse to cover. It’s that spirit that earned the Goods this year’s Caring Transitions Pioneer Spirit Award.
Caring Transitions is America’s largest resource for managing senior relocations as well as downsizing and estate liquidations. In addition to organizing, packing, decluttering, moving and resettling, Caring Transitions can handle estate sales, liquidations, and preparing homes for market. Caring Transitions Casper and Cheyenne brings these professional solutions to Casper, Cheyenne, Glenrock, Douglas, Thermopolis and all of Central Wyoming.
“Being recognized is a great honor because it is recognition from our peers and corporate leadership. These are people we respect and we attribute much of our own success to their support as we have grown our own business,” Kendra said. “We would like people to know that our goal is to serve and care for others first. We believe that making this our top priority causes business success to follow.”
Caring Transitions President Chris Seman said the Goods were recognized with the Pioneer Spirit Award for multiple reasons – not the least of which is that they are committed to providing Caring Transitions’ full suite of services despite having a territory that would take six hours to drive across. They’ve also embraced the company’s philosophies and have overcome their geographical challenges to experience continuous growth since opening in 2010. In fact, Caring Transitions Casper and Cheyenne’s sales have grown by 20 percent for the last two years and the company has been in the Caring Transitions national top 35 every year since 2012. Although they’re busy, Seman also said the Goods are always willing to help other franchises, and the national company, grow.
“Kendra and Ed have also demonstrated their willingness to share by being a training center, speaking with potential owners during the corporate training and sharing often on Yammer (an enterprise social network.) The two also came up with the idea of the ‘Picker’s Sale’ on Caring Transitions’ auctions pickup days. This method helps clients get some money for lower value items and ensures a higher price per lot sold, which helps the Caring Transitions franchisee,” Seman said.
The Caring Transitions“Pickers Sale” also encourages winning bidders to win at least one item and to show up at the designated pickup time. Additionally, having these items for sale on the pickup day gives winning bidders something to do if there is a line on pickup day, it allows the opportunity to reach neighbors and it minimizes labor to remove low value items from a home, Seman added.
In addition to the passion they have for their work, the Goods are also passionate about serving the community though their efforts with the Highland Park Community Church, Casper Chamber of Commerce and other volunteer roles.
