At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we proudly represent a strong history of women in leadership positions with our brand over our 30 years of moving.
From our company’s founder – Mary Ellen Sheets – to Melanie Bergeron, who was the first franchisee in the system and has held executive roles for years, we have had women reach the highest levels of success with our company. This extends to our franchise system, too, and we have a number of women who own and operate TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations across the country and internationally.
Among our women franchisee leaders in the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK system is Rebecca Feldman, who along with her fellow business partners, owns operations in Florida, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Feldman was recently featured in a profile piece by the Upstate Business Journal in South Carolina, where they highlighted her journey through the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK timeline and how she has found success as a business owner in the moving industry.
“For women, it’s so hard to strike a balance,” Feldman said in the interview. “You are trying to get the children where they need to be, run the carpools, have dinner prepared, get everyone fed. When you own your own business, you have many task and expectations that need to get done within the day. But at times, you have more flexibility. You’re able to carve out bits of time with your family. It’s much easier than if you are at a job where there are hours you have to be there, set amounts of vacation days, and are working within someone else’s structure.
