Farewell, and thank you –

After more than 26 years of owning and operating the local Merry Maids franchise, I am extremely happy to announce that I am retiring and have sold the business to a wonderful local couple, Victor and Naomi Bellavia. When my late husband Ron and I bought the franchise as a start-up in 1993, we were committed to providing “professional, quality, and affordable house cleaning services with a smile” to Grand Valley residents. In our first year of operation, we beat out dozens of other new Merry Maids offices to win the coveted “Rookie of the Year” award and have grown considerably since then. I credit our continued success first and foremost to our incredibly hard-working, dedicated and veteran staff, along with the mentoring network we have with other Merry Maids owners across the country. (Currently, there are several employees who have been with our local office for more than ten years, and another who is nearing the five-year mark, all of whom are staying on with the new ownership.) While it’s been a true honor and a privilege to have worked alongside our staff to serve you and our many other wonderful clients across the valley, it’s time to turn the reins over to a dynamic and very capable new ownership. I will be staying on for a couple of months to help with the transition, and I hope to personally say goodbye to many of you in the meantime. Thank you all sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, for your loyal patronage over the years –

Elaine Johnson-Craig

We want to welcome you home.

As new owners of your local Merry Maids of Grand Junction, we are excited to continue to provide you with the same great services you have come to expect from Elaine and the staff.

We would like to introduce you to our family. Victor will be running the day-to-day operations. He has lived in the Grand Junction area almost his entire life. He graduated from Grand Junction High School and then from what was then Mesa State College. Victor spent 7 years in the hospitality industry with Sodexo University Services and holds a Master’s of Science in Organizational Leadership from Regis University. Victor’s wife, Naomi, has lived in Grand Junction for more than 15 years. Naomi grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii and came to Grand Junction to attend Mesa State College. Naomi and Victor were married in 2011 and decided to make Grand Junction their permanent home. Naomi is a 2nd grade teacher at Holy Family Catholic School. She holds an MBA from Regis University among other degrees in Business Management and Culinary Arts. Along with teaching, she will help out with the finance pieces of the operation. The Bellavia Family would not be complete without their two wonderful children - Lillian, who is 7, and Joseph, who is 4.

Again, we are very excited to welcome you to our family, as we continue to provide you with the great services you have come to expect from Merry Maids.

Please feel free to call us in the office at any time with questions or even just to say hello!

Thank you,

Victor, Naomi,

Miss Lillian & Master Joseph Bellavia
