Funeral Home Sells in North Carolina
Lenoir, NC – Rollings Funeral Service, Inc is proud to announce its recent acquisition of Evans Funeral Home. The business, located in Lenoir, North Carolina, was founded by Chris Evans, and has grown quickly to be one of the largest and most respected business in the Lenoir area and surrounding towns.
Greg Rollings, President and Owner of Rollings Funeral Service, Inc, stated “We couldn’t be more excited for Evans Funeral Home to join our growing family of firms that want to sell but remain family owned. This acquisition begins what we believe will be the first of many acquisitions in the state of North Carolina. Rollings added, “I’m extremely excited that Reggie Green is staying with the business to continue the tradition of quality service to the people in the Lenoir area.”
Chris Evans, Evans Funeral Home former owner, interviewed several possible buyers before deciding that Rollings Funeral Service would be the best successor to his business. The business, operating from a large and beautiful farmhouse on the north side of Lenoir serves more than 300 families annually and was one of the first in the region to install its own crematory.
With more than 25 locations, Rollings Funeral Service, Inc is one of the largest private funeral home owners in the eastern United States. Rollings plans to continue to be very active in acquiring funeral homes, giving retiring owners a great alternative to selling to a publicly traded company.
