As Southwest Florida continues to grow so does one of the most recognized family owned businesses in the community, Best Home Services. A new sign, new call center, and a new location are just a few of the highlights for the company thus far in 2017.
Headquartered in Naples, Best Homes Services recently celebrated the ribbon cutting of its new Sarasota location. With this additional facility the company has been able to expand its service area to Manatee and Sarasota counties. The company now serves the west coast of Florida from Bradenton south to Marco Island.
On the morning of Wednesday, May 10, a full-sized replica of the iconic Best Home Services van was hoisted to its permanent position 20 feet above U.S. 41 in Fort Myers to mark the location of the company’s new call center. The 15,000-square-foot facility at 16090 S. Tamiami Trail is expected to open in August and will house about 60 employees, representing a continuing expansion of Southwest Florida’s leading air conditioning, electrical and plumbing company.
The eye-catching sign, measuring the full width of a Ford Transit commercial van similar to many in the Best Home Services fleet of 108 vehicles, features working LED headlights and illumination of the Best Home Services superhero-inspired logo on each side of the van, which will face north- and south-bound traffic.
Not only has the company seen plenty of growth this year, but recently, Governor Scott presented co-owners Chadd and Keegan Hodges with the Business Ambassador Award in honor of their job creation and expansion. The brothers, who took the business over in 2009 from their parents, Perry and Marilyn, pledged to create 80 new jobs in 2017.
The company currently employs close to 150 people and is recognized for a work culture that encourages customer service excellence, continuing professional development, workplace satisfaction and community service.
