Women’s History Month: Meet Merry Maids Marketing Manager Aaliah Chik

Meet Merry Maids Marketing Manager Aaliah Chik. 

Earlier month, we celebrated International Women’s Day by spotlighting some of the women who own and operate Merry Maids franchises across the UK.

As Women’s History Month continues, we sat down with the women who work behind the scenes in our ServiceMaster Brands UK franchise support centre to discuss their careers as women in franchising.

Including Merry Maids UK’s Marketing Manager, Aaliah Chik.

Meet Aaliah

Aaliah Chik joined ServiceMaster Brands UK in September 2022 as a Senior Marketing Executive for our Merry Maids and TruGreen brands.

As a champion and supporter of our franchisees, Aaliah loves marketing and being able to introduce the fun and importance of it to our networks of business owners.

“It’s great to watch franchisees see the results and power of marketing,” she says.

What’s the best career advice you’ve been given?

“To be confident in what you do, be bold and put yourself out there.”

What do you wish more people knew about being a woman in business?

“You can succeed and lead a very successful business. Be bold and know you can do it.”

“There is lots of support out there and build a great team that believes in your dream and will help you get there.”

“That’s the great thing about the franchise model: you automatically get that support.”

What’s an accomplishment or win that makes you especially proud?

“I’m fortunate to be in a role which I love and I get that winning feeling quite often.”

“I’ve recently joined the business and the new support tools and my new way of working have been well received.”

“It has brought in so much engagement from franchisees and customers alike, and we are already seeing the benefits of it, in such a short time frame. It excites me to develop this further and see what the future could bring.”

What has been a big goal in your career?

“My goal is to be the best at what I do and see that translate into the success of others.”
