Franchise Owner: Neil Burnette
The TruBlue franchise, from day one, was built on the idea that people in the community needed an honest, high-quality, customer service-focused company that could do everything from minor handyman repairs to cleaning services to renovations. I’m Neil Burnette, the local owner and operator of TruBlue of Suffolk and I launched this business because I wanted to be that one-call-does-it-all company for Suffolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Carrolton, Smithfield and the surrounding areas.
TruBlue is a full-service company that offers both bundled and unbundled services. Clients looking for dependable, high-quality, individual services can hire TruBlue for basic help around the home, handyman repairs, cleaning services, emergency repairs, landscaping, seasonal services and minor home renovations. For clients looking for total house care solutions – especially seniors and busy families who want the comfort and convenience of owning a home without worrying about the maintenance hassles – TruBlue offers a House Care Plus monthly and quarterly maintenance programs.
Before TruBlue, I built my career in retail leadership, first in sporting goods and then with a leading home goods company. Promotions and new assignments sent me to California, Arizona, Louisiana and Texas before my family and I settled in Virginia to oversee a company’s stores throughout Virginia. Although I enjoyed my work, I realized I was ready for a new challenge in a new industry when I bumped into another TruBlue owner, Tim Diemont.
