When we lose a loved one and are faced with such an emotional event, turning to a funeral director whom you know, trust, and are comfortable with – makes a world of difference.
Many individuals are not aware that in recent years large corporations have acquired many privately owned funeral homes.
When a large corporation purchases a funeral home, it usually means many things are about to shift: the staff often changes, price increases usually occur, entire business operations, including procedures and outsourcing of services are almost inevitable. Often time’s large corporations tend to be more concerned with obtaining quarterly forecasts and increasing revenues instead of focusing on the needs and wishes of the families that they are serving.
Unfortunately many of these corporately owned funeral homes maintain the previous name often unbeknownst to the public that they are no longer the family owned and operated.
In order to maintain the outward appearance of a family owned funeral home, keeping the name and even employing the former owner to reap the goodwill of a local, family owned business is often a tactic used by large corporately owned funeral homes.
This trend, however, of large corporations purchasing local funeral homes have recently begun to reverse itself. The reason behind it – the corporately owned funeral homes often times have not measured up to the service that families have come to expect from the local family-owned funeral homes.
The funeral profession has a long and proud history of personal service to local families accompanied by deep roots in their community; which a corporately owned funeral home simply cannot offer.
