Family Owned Versus Chains

Is there any difference between a FAMILY OWNED FUNERAL HOME, and a funeral home that is part of a corporate-owned chain?

Over the past several years, large multi-national organizations have been purchasing funeral homes and mortuaries at an alarming rate. The early nineties saw hundreds of family operated funerals homes across North America brought into the fold of large multi national firms. Recent media reports such as 60 Minutes, Time, and US News and World Report conclude that these death care business operations, while trying to maintain the facade of a family operation, quickly increase prices considerably and enforce merchandising policies on employees geared to significantly increase their bottom lines.

Is Santos-Robinson Mortuary independently owned or is it operated by a large chain or corporation?

The Santos-Robinson Mortuary is locally owned and independently operated. It is not operated by a large public corporation.


SANTOS-ROBINSON MORTUARY IS FAMILY OWNED and has a single focus; providing the best quality service and value to our families and friends. We are not governed by corporate mandates or driven to increase profits. We know that our success depends upon how we treat each and every family we serve. It is our goal at Santos-Robinson Mortuary is not only to satisfy your needs but to exceed your expectations.
