In a profession such as funeral service, which requires experience and accessibility, you would believe that the family owned funeral home would be the enduring business model. Unfortunately, this is not the case. A wave of corporate ownership is sweeping through American funeral service.
The corporate owned funeral home poses as a "Mom & Pop" operation, attempting to reap the goodwill developed over generations. More concerned with sales figures and volume targets, the corporate owned funeral home charges 30-40% more on average than its independently owned competition. Don't expect the conglomerate owned business to advertise their affiliation or ownership out in the open.
The Ralph Meyer & Deters Funeral Home is proud to be family owned and operated. Since its founding, the funeral home owners have lived at the funeral home. We have been in your neighborhood for decades and you see us at your church, school, local sporting and community events. When you call the Ralph Meyer & Deters Funeral Home, you will speak with the person who's name is on our sign.
