New Ownership Announced for ServiceMaster Restoration Franchise

Press Release

ServiceMaster Restoration by All-Action announced new owners of the full-service disaster restoration business, located in North Lima, Ohio.

Jim Smith, the Operations Manager of the local franchise, along with Diane Butler, Cheryl Franks and Kelly Meyers, owners of ServiceMaster franchises in Pennsylvania, purchased the Ohio franchise location recently.

“We are looking forward to continuing the commitment of providing exceptional customer service to customers in the territory covered by ServiceMaster Restoration by All-Action,” explained Smith. The franchise services Northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania communities by providing property damage restoration services to both residential and commercial customers.

The franchise began more than 30 years ago, by Rick Pesa, who with his sister, Cindy Glasser, co-founded the original franchise. Pesa will remain as the current General Manager of Operations. “Our team has specialized experts in solving a number of disaster restoration problems, including fire damage, water damage, and weather-related problems to property and belongings. The new owners will have the same dedication to the corporate values about the business that we started with this franchise, back in 1986,” said Pesa.

A high value system is part of the success of this ServiceMaster team, trusted by entire communities to handle property-related damages for many situations, including municipality sewer failure, water damage and mold remediation. The franchise belongs to the ServiceMaster Restore® family of businesses, which has been providing national disaster restoration services for decades as a single-source solution to emergency response, damage cleanup and restoration, and construction rebuilds with quality contractors.

The combined experience of the new owners includes every aspect of natural disaster remediation and mold mitigation, both locally and in major storm areas across the nation.

“People trust the ServiceMaster name, and we are recognized by the ServiceMaster logo,” explained Smith. “The new franchise ownership will continue to uphold that trust as we service our community. While this is a disaster-related business, it is also a relationship business because the people who experience the hardships of a disaster are our friends, family and neighbors in the community. We intend to continue helping them through property insurance claims and restoring their buildings and contents to give them peace of mind again.”
