TAKE A FEW MOMENTS AS VETERAN’S DAY APPROACHES

On this Veteran’s Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free.

Dan Lipinski

As Veteran’s Day approaches, we wanted to take a few moments to celebrate the day and to recognize those brave men and women who have served our country in the various branches of the military, including those Handyman Matters / Ace Handyman owners who number among those brave and dedicated citizens.

Originally called “Armistice Day,” the day saluting our military veterans came into being on November 11, 1919.  Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to the living ones who served their country honorably during both war and peacetime.

November 11th was the designated day in honor of “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 that signaled the end of World War I.  In 1954, President Eisenhower officially rechristened it Veterans Day.

In 1968, Congress voted to move the event to the fourth Monday in October.  The law went into effect in 1971, but President Ford returned the day to November 11th in 1975, due to the historical significance of the original date.

Many veterans now work in a wide range of fields, from manufacturing and retail to transportation and the entertainment industry, as laborers, managers, and executives, according to U.S. Census data.  The largest contingent of veterans, about 14 percent, works in public service or administration, which isn’t really surprising given its close relationship to military service.

We want to extend a personal note of appreciation and gratitude to those brave members of our Handyman Matters / Ace Handyman family who are military veterans, as well:

  • Mark Bushong, U.S. Air Force
  • Roger Clark, U.S. Army
  • Richard Compton, U.S. Marine Corps.
  • Mike Sitek, U.S. Navy

Thank you, gentlemen, for your service to our country!

Handyman Matters has once again been recognized as a top Brand as part of Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Companies for Customer Service for 2020. Similar to last year, an independent study used data from a survey of more than 20,000 US customers and focused solely on Customer Service.

Statista conducted the study for Newsweek and focused on a number of criteria, which included, but was not limited to, communication processes, range of services offered, technical abilities, and recommendation likelihood.

“This recognition is continued validation of our Service Path process and true focus on the customer experience.” Claimed Chris Bue, CEO of Handyman Matters. “Our owners continue to exceed the customer expectation and it shows with this recognition two years in a row!”

Handyman Matters’ locally owned and operated locations provide background checked, multi-skilled craftsmen, who can handle a homeowners’ to-do list.  The Half Day Package continues to be the most sought-after service from customers, allowing a Craftsman to get numerous items or tasks done around the home completed in four hours.

Kim Hobden, General Manager of the North Metro Denver location stated, “So proud of our TEAM and how hard they have worked to accomplish this for the second time.  It was nice to be recognized last year, but to do it again this year truly shows the commitment we are making to our customers.”

Handyman Matters guarantees their work and offers a “like it’s our home” Promise. Check out why Handyman Matters is different HERE.
