We love our team! you will too.

Founders

Kristin Verbeek (right) and Meghan Peters both started out as working moms with little ones that had too much to do and not a lot of time to do it. Late for school plays and chipping their teeth trying to get the plastic wrapper off of their bake sale goods; they knew there had to be a better way.  Kristin and Meghan sympathized with other working mothers and knew that they could help without breaking the bank and so, Lathered began! 


Within a short week of using grocery store cleaners they had pinterest open and furniture upside down trying to find cleaning products that could kill bacteria and not kill their skin and lungs…and they found it! 14 teams armed with the best all purpose cleaner money can’t buy with the essence of essential oils wherever they go! 

Create a franchise of your own

Starting Lathered has been such an incredible journey. We have been able to find our work/life balance and pride ourselves on being able to show others how to do the same.

What does your ideal 

work day look like? 

I love to be out in the field cleaning, training, performing quality checks and office work 


What is your favourite thing 

about what you do? 

 Meeting our customers during initials and hearing about how we all did from their point of view making customers happy and working with our amazing team each day.

If you weren't doing this, 

what would you be doing? 

I would probably in school or looking for a great opportunity like this one!

How would your friends describe you? Hardworking, friendly, funny and helpful I hope. lol. Especially the funny part

What has Lathered provided you? 

To own and build something great with a fantastic partner who cares about this as much as I do and working with a great team of woman that I can also call my friends.

Lisa - Owner

What does your ideal 

work day look like? 

Mostly doing office work but with some interaction with our cleaning team, I get a little lonely, just a little 😊


What is your favourite thing about what you do? 

There is something amazing about making clients happy and helping them in

 their every day lives. 


If you weren't doing this, what would you be doing? 

I would probably still be working in dental. Dental was great but it did not leave me feeling quite as fulfilled as being able to put time and effort into something of our own and watch it grow.


How would your friends describe you? 

Focused and caring


What has Lathered provided you?

An opportunity to work from home, to work hard and put in hours for the benefit of our own company, not for someone else’s


Lisa - C.O.O.

What does your ideal

work day look like? 

A large cup of coffee (or 3..) at my computer, managing a full, beautiful schedule for the day, communicating with clients and our teams! I love getting out in the field here and there and the incredibly thrilling and fulfilling duty of traveling to step up/check in on franchises! Just to name a few :) 


What is your favourite thing 

about what you do? 

How about 2?! That each and every day is different! Coming from the corporate world, this was tough at first. It took no time at all to see the beauty in change. Never a dull moment!
Also, communicating with our people, across the board. I have found my happy place where even the sky is not the limit!


If you weren't doing this, 

what would you be doing? 

Speaking from experience before Lathered, I would be trying desperately to find my place. Surely there is some way to balance mom/work life? Would it be crazy to squeeze in a social life too?! I couldn't possibly continue to feel guilty for whichever had to lack on that given day. My daughter, family and most importantly, I, are so happy that that search is over and I have found that balance with my people. The people who get it, understand it and respect it. 


How would your friends describe you?

 I care deeply and wear my heart on my sleeve. Then I'll blindside you with my dry, sarcastic sense of humour! It's a delicate balance ;) 


What has Lathered provided you? 

Balance. Pride. Flexibility. Opportunity (say this one 3 times). Respect. Friendship. The mindset, confidence and attitude that I & we can do anything!
