One of the cornerstones of Ace Handyman Services, dating well back to the company’s start as Handyman Matters in 1998, is that every Franchise Owner is a member of the community he or she serves. It’s our belief that, in order to truly understand the needs and concerns of our customers, we must be fellow citizens in the same world and experience the same things they encounter.
Our Franchise Owners:
• Live and work in the community they serve.
• Hire employees from the community and area they serve.
• Are small business owners.
From the corporate office all the way down to each individually-owned location, the credo has been that in addition to serving the needs of our clients, we want to give back to the community in which we live and do business. If we find and can address a need, that benefits us all and makes everyone stronger.
Brett Jeffreys, our Fort Worth Ace Handyman Services owner since 2010, regularly demonstrates his dedication to both customers and community. His office has been the recipient of The Super Service Award from Angie’s List every year that he’s been with them. Brett and his family are also strong supporters of Camp Impact, a non-profit organization in Arlington and Grand Prairie TX dedicated to providing local homeless and underprivileged youth with an opportunity to attend a summer camp.
In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Erin Woods opened a Handyman Matters—now Ace Handyman Services—location in 2003 with her father Bob McRedmond. In 2019, Erin’s husband Bill Woods joined the Ace family by opening another office in the Lancaster and York areas. Erin’s office was awarded The Simply the Best – Handyman distinction in 2017, a title voted on by readers of Harrisburg Magazine. Erin is an active member of her community’s Rotary Club, and among the ways she gives back to her community is through Operation Christmas Shoebox Packing, an event in which families fill shoebox-sized boxes with toys, trinkets and basic necessity items such as toothbrushes, and distributed to those in need.
Stacy Huston, owner of our Park Cities, TX location, celebrated her tenth year anniversary as a Handyman Matters/Ace Handyman Services franchise owner by organizing her team to help build a greenhouse for Vogel Alcove, a Dallas-based organization that helps to ensure that homeless families with children have a home, a self-sufficient family, and a foundation for success.
As we currently face the threat of a worldwide pandemic and all of the uncertainty and fear it brings, it becomes more important than ever that we need to band together to get through this crisis as quickly and as safely as possible. It’s with Brett, Erin, Stacy and other people leading the way in their individual communities that we will face this challenge and then get back to our former day-to-day routines and helping to better the lives of everyone around us.
