This award identifies the top performing Comfort Keepers franchise owners in the United States who achieved top revenues, top growth, and maintained excellent operational standards in 2011. This will be the 10th year in a row Meller has been recognized for stellar business performance in the area of non-medical in-home care for seniors.

Comfort Keepers, a growing franchise network offering in-home care, and services for aging adults and others needing assistance, allows clients to live comfortably in their own homes and maintain their independence. Comfort Keepers provides in-home care assistance, such as cooking nutritious meals, light housekeeping, running errands, medication reminders, and assistance with bathing.

Shar is a top performing franchisee because she demonstrates a strong commitment to her own franchise and clearly delivers quality service to seniors and other adults in the Milwaukee County area.” said Jim Booth, President and CEO of CK Franchising, Inc. “Shar’s attention to managing exceptional caregivers and other personnel, efficient operations management, as well as effective sales and marketing efforts are reflected in her location’s success.”

Shar was helping her mom take care of her dad who wanted to die at home and during that process she learned firsthand what was necessary to provide dignity and respect at these end stages everyone’s life. The Meller family has dedicated their lives to make that difference. As we expect our caregivers who are simply the best to treat each client as a family member the owners treat their administrative staff and caregivers with the same love.

“I am truly honored to receive this award,” Meller said. “I believe that upholding the high standards of Comfort Keepers, and my own personal Christian convictions has helped me build a successful business in an industry that I am most passionate about.
