As a young boy growing up near the Blue Ridge Mountains, Floyd Bender had dreams of making the world a better place. His dreams took him to Cumberland, MD, where he started a youth ministry, and later became the pastor of a small city mission church called Friendship Haven. The church, being a mission, did not provide an income for raising his family of seven children.
Along with his wife, Martha, he began to pray that God would provide an opportunity for business which would also complement the ministry. It wasn’t long until they heard about ServiceMaster for the first time and began to explore the company in depth. Discovering that the ServiceMaster name literally meant “Service to the Master”, the Benders were motivated to buy their first franchise in 1988, ServiceMaster of Allegany County, which offered disaster restoration services. Market expansion occurred in 2004, with the addition of a janitorial service franchise in the Morgantown, WV, area, ServiceMaster Cleaning Specialists. Further expansion came for ServiceMaster of Allegany County in 2016 when janitorial service was added to the company’s portfolio. In 2017, disaster restoration services became available through the Morgantown franchise.
In addition to working, primarily in the Morgantown area, Floyd serves as the pastor of Grace Brethren Church in Cumberland, and enjoys pursuing various mission opportunities locally as well as internationally. He contributes his success in business and ministry first and foremost to God, as well as to the support of his wife, family, and staff.
In 2002, Jeremy officially came on board as an employee with the family business. He already had strong foundational knowledge of ServiceMaster’s principles and processes, having frequently assisted his dad, Floyd, on many jobs throughout his youth. From his start as a restoration technician, he worked his way up within the company and now serves as second generation owner and vice president of the company. In 2014, he purchased a Furniture Medic franchise, a sister company to the ServiceMaster brands which offers furniture restoration and refinishing services.
Jeremy holds multiple levels of master certification through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (llCRC) in all disaster restoration processes.
In addition to managing all operations for ServiceMaster and Furniture Medic, he enjoys coaching youth sports in the community and serving as a board member on many committees and civic groups in Allegany County. Jeremy is an avid proponent of progress and growth within our community and is dedicated to making those things happen. He resides in Cumberland with his wife, Crystal, and their two sons.
God has blessed ServiceMaster of Allegany County and ServiceMaster Cleaning Specialists to become leaders in their respective communities and each day they strive to uphold the original ServiceMaster objectives:
• To Honor God In All We Do
• To Develop People
• To Pursue Excellence
• To Grow Profitably
