Ace Hardware Announces Partnership with ServiceMaster Brands

Ace Hardware has entered into a multi-year agreement with ServiceMaster Brands, a franchise provider of needs-based residential and commercial services in the restoration, cleaning, moving and bioremediation industries. The new partnership will enable local franchise owners within the ServiceMaster® organization the ability to buy business supplies with exclusive benefits from locally-owned Ace Hardware stores.

“The entrepreneurial spirit of local Ace Hardware owners and ServiceMaster® Brands franchise owners creates a perfect energy for independent, local-to-local partnerships to thrive,” says Kiko Garcia, Ace Hardware’s corporate vice president, business to business. “The footprint of both companies across the country, coupled with their unwavering commitment to other independent, locally owned businesses, is unparalleled.”

This collaboration emphasizes fostering local connections and cultivates a powerful synergy grounded in localized engagement. The relationship is the newest addition to Ace Hardware’s National Accounts program, which ensures that business customers with nationwide locations receive a seamless shopping experience, whether online or at their local Ace Hardware store. This initiative provides business customers unparalleled access to the exceptional service, quality and convenience they expect from Ace Hardware everywhere they shop.

“ServiceMaster of Kalamazoo has found immense value in our partnership with our local Ace Hardware,” says Tom Little, local owner of ServiceMaster in Kalamazoo, Michigan. “Ace has not only supplied us with top-quality tools and supplies, but they’ve also streamlined our operations by offering many of the non-ServiceMaster products through one vendor for both Restore and Clean. Their competitive prices and customizable business portal have significantly enhanced our efficiency, allowing us to better serve our customers.”
