Charlene Blanton, Caring Transitions of Myrtle Beach, Recognized with National Bruce Treadway Pioneer Spirit Award

Charlene BlantonIn the almost nine years since Charlene Blanton opened Caring Transitions of Myrtle Beach, she has gone through many of the same experiences as her clients – from emergency moves to having to cope with the cleaning out of a loved one’s home – and those experiences have helped her make her business stronger. Now, in recognition of her ability to adapt her business to her clients’ changing needs and her own perseverance, Caring Transitions’ national franchise team has recognized Blanton with the Caring Transitions Bruce Treadway Pioneer Spirit Award.

The Bruce Treadway Pioneer Spirit Award is named after Caring Transitions’ very first franchisee, Bruce Treadway, who helped build the franchise into the national Franchise 500® ranked business it is today. Blanton’s award was presented at the company’s national conference on February 4, 2020.

“Charlene's Pioneer spirit is not simply a one-time occurrence. Over her many years with Caring Transitions, Charlene has not only evolved with the brand but has championed change that has had a lasting impact on the network and most importantly, our clients. I’m pleased to present this award to Charlene and her team,” Caring Transitions Ray Fabik said.

“In almost 9 years of being a Caring Transitions owner, we have had to continuous adapt our business so as to serve our client-family’s needs by better understanding what they are going through and wrapping our arms around their unique circumstances so we can provide a solution that fits their needs, goals and expectations. We constantly look at how to serve our clients and how to say ‘YES’ to getting them smoothly and seamlessly through one the of the most overwhelming, difficult times a family can face. We are mountain movers, stress relievers, hand holders, stuff purveyors, chaos managers, dot connectors… we strive to be their most trusted resource,” Blanton said.

For Blanton, the success of Caring Transitions locally and nationally comes down to three things – the service provided by individual franchisees and their teams, the Caring Transitions corporate office and the franchise family working together.

“We are truly better together and this could not work without all the players, including our hard-working, compassionate Myrtle Beach team who never stop looking for solutions; our Caring Transitions corporate office, who provide a strong backbone and an open door for support and innovation; and our Caring Transitions franchisee family for sharing their best practices and experiences and are always working together to strengthen our brand,” Blanton added.
