David and Kelly LeCroy, residents of Catoosa County for 20 years, were awarded the Screenmobile franchise.
Screenmobile of Chattanooga will serve Catoosa, Bradley and Hamilton counties including the areas of Apison, Chattanooga, Cleveland, McDonald, Ooltewah and Ringgold.
After 18 years as a police officer in East Ridge, followed by 16 years of truck driving for several local companies, David LeCroy was looking for a change.
“I was ready to take the lessons I learned working for others and put them to use in running my own business,” said LeCroy.
In deciding what type of business to launch, LeCroy looked to his personal experience. Several years ago when LeCroy hired a company to fix his screens, they were removed from the windows, and sent off for repair. When his screens were returned, none fit the windows properly, and his windows remained screen-less. LeCroy not only knew first-hand that the area needed a screening service, but he knew a mobile service would be the key to success. This experience led him to Screenmobile.
LeCroy’s conversations with Screenmobile’s chief executive officer, Scott Walker, sealed the deal.
“I found the Screenmobile franchise system to be a stable company with a big family feeling,” said LeCroy. “Feeling like one big family is exactly how I want my customers to feel — personal attention from me, the company owner, rather than from a salesperson.”
“The LeCroys’ work experience will be an asset to their new business, and their professionalism and customer service standards match the Screenmobile philosophy and core beliefs,” said Walker. “We are pleased to welcome David and Kelly LeCroy to the Screenmobile family.”
David’s wife, Kelly, an administrative bookkeeper for Catoosa County schools working at Boynton Elementary School, will be handling the books in the evening.
Their eldest daughter Meagan graduated in 2008 from Ringgold High School, and the youngest Melissa will graduate this year from Heritage High School.
The LeCroys are pleased to bring their mobile screening service to their neighbors’ doors and windows.
