Merry Maids was founded in 1979 in Omaha, Nebraska by Dallen Peterson. Dallen worked with his family to create the Merry Maids system and franchise the company.
In 1988, ServiceMaster purchased Merry Maids from the Petersons. All of the ServiceMaster companies specialize in home services, so Merry Maids has been a natural fit for ServiceMaster from the beginning. Some of our sister companies in our Family of Brands include Terminix, TruGreen, ServiceMaster Clean and American Home Shield.
The Merry Maids view of family and values also aligned with ServiceMaster's corporate objectives. We honor God in all that we do, excel with customers, help people develop and grow profitably.
ServiceMaster operates more than 75 Merry Maids branches throughout the United States. As Merry Maids has grown, our core values remain the heart of what we do and who we are. As an example, many of the franchise owners who purchased territories in the early years have included their children in their businesses, and continue to work themselves. Merry Maids also encourages career growth. Several branch managers began their careers as team members.


In 1973, our corporate headquarters were established in East Lansing, Michigan operating as TruGreen.

With the success of our lawn care services, ServiceMaster® decided to acquire TruGreen in 1990, after which we then moved our headquarters to Memphis, Tennessee to join the ServiceMaster family of brands.

ServiceMaster officially acquired ChemLawn in 1992, making our business unit the largest professional lawn care provider in the nation. It immediately began operating as TruGreen, doing business as TruGreen.

Combined with our commercial services business unit, TruGreen LandCare, TruGreen has become the world's largest lawn and landscape company serving more than 3.4 million residential and commercial customers across the U.S. with lawn care, tree and shrub care, and landscaping services.

As the current industry leader, we've continued to lead in the development of new technology for lawn care. TruGreen devotes substantial resources to continually evaluate new products and equipment and to develop better methods for taking care of grass, trees, and shrubs. All of our lawn specialists are tenured full-time employees who must complete a rigorous training program before they can be certified by TruGreen.
Additionally, we have taken an active leadership role in both developing and supporting sound environmental practices and regulatory policies. TruGreen is committed to environmentally responsible practices and products, and we have established our own set of environmental stewardship principles.


Based in Memphis, Tenn., Terminix International Co. has a worldwide network of locations, including 864 service centers throughout the United States and in 14 countries around the world. Terminix is a part of the ServiceMaster Quality Service Network, which also includes the organizations listed at the bottom of this page.
