This month Franchise Interviews is celebrating Great Women Leaders in franchising. Today's interview is with Melanie Bergeron. Melanie officially joined the family business in 1989 when she was awarded the first TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise in Atlanta, Ga. Bergeron also maintained a career in pharmaceutical sales while operating the franchise because all profits from the franchise were being reinvested into the family business. At the request of her mother, Founder Mary Ellen Sheets, Bergeron came to work at the home office in Lansing, MI in the 1990s. In 1994, Bergeron was named president of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. In 2002, she became chief operating officer and in January 2007, she took over as CEO. She became chair of the board in 2009.
