About Merry Maids of Calgary North & SE
Kim & Stanton Hinkly have owned the Calgary location since 2007. We are proud of receiving the Dallen Peterson Founders Award in 2008.
Kim grew up in Kearney, MO and loves following Jayhawk basketball. Stanton grew up in Cedar Rapids, IA he loves the Iowa State Cyclones. He received his BS from Iowa State and his MBA from the University of Nebraska. After Grad school he started working for the Merry Maids corporate office in Memphis, TN, soon after that he met Kim. Kim had just graduated with a BS in Criminal Justice from MO West and was running the Merry Maids in North Kansas City, MO. Eventually they both worked for the corporate office in Memphis, TN.
As our romance with Merry Maids grew we decided to buy into it ourselves. In May of 2000 we moved to Kansas to purchase the Lawrence and Topeka, KS Merry Maids locations. In June 2007 we headed North to purchase the Calgary N & SE location. Our goals were to provide a quality cleaning service and a great place to work. We are honored to have many of our original clients and employees still to this day. We were extremely honoured to have an Canadian Region Employee of the Year and two North American Employees of the Year during this time. In 2008 we received the Dallen Peterson Founders Award. (The top honour for a Merry Maids franchise owner.)
We have two girls and a black lab named bunker. If you can’t tell Stanton also enjoys golf. Luckily the girls’ names are Audrey and Abigail and not Divot and Sandy. We are proud to be involved with many local charities and helping the communities we serve. We love spending time in Calgary hiking, golfing and cheering on the Stampeders and the Flames.
Our office staff includes our manager Alex and our office assistant Sarah. Our office staff is ready to answer any questions you may have. We know it takes trust to allow someone else to clean your home and we are honoured to earn that trust. Our priority is to make sure you have an outstanding experience with us. Each employee has a criminal background check and motor vehicle check.
We take great pride in our staff and they take great pride in servicing our client’s homes.
Alex joined the Merry Maids team in July of 2009. Alex was hired to complement our management team with her Accounting background. Alex’s energy and desire to learn quickly helped her grow and develop into the Assistant Manager role.
Alex’s passion to serve customers helped her continue to develop into the Manager role. Alex loves to serve our customers and can often be found out helping the teams in the customer’s’ home. Alex is an animal lover and her black lab Gulliver can be found working hard at the office with her.
Alex also enjoys traveling and visiting her family.
