Memorial Day Reflections




Grilling Season + Remembering the Reason = A Heartfelt Memorial Day Weekend

As we approach Memorial Day, FRSTeam wants to honor the courage and sacrifice of those who have served our country. This day marks the unofficial start of summer grilling season, but as we gather with friends, it’s also important to remember the brave men and women who laid down their lives for our freedoms.

We hope you join us in saluting the deep significance of this day for many families.


Welcome New Owner!

We are excited to announce Justice Bates as the new Owner of FRSTeam by McLendon Cleaners in Longview, Texas. Justice and his wife Jessica are taking over the reins of the franchise they managed for years, bringing a strong background in sales, customer service, and entrepreneurship to the table.

“We believe in providing a service that’s not just needed, but one that carries out our principles of honesty and integrity,” Justice explained about their decision to purchase and enhance the existing operation.

Their focus as FRSTeam franchise owners is on practical, community-centered solutions, particularly for individuals facing the stress of rebuilding after personal loss. “Our goal is to make our part of the restoration process as painless as possible,” said Justice.

With a track record in successful business ventures and a clear vision for the future, Justice and Jessica are eager to leverage the FRSTeam brand and its resources to grow their business and increase job opportunities in their region.

Justice and Jessica: Welcome to the FRSTeam family! We’re glad you’re here.
