ACE M HA DYMA SERVI FRVICES Ace Handyman Services Grand Opening! Catering to those in our Community that Need Small Jobs Done Ace Handyman Services of Shorewood will celebrate its entrance into the local business community with two ribbon cuttings at the end of November. The business, owned by Ken and Kim Porter, has membership in two chambers of commerce and will host a ribbon cutting Nov. 22 with the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce and another with the Plainfield Shorewood Area Chamber of Commerce on Nov. 29. The franchise officially opened Nov. 7, but the legwork for the opening began in October of this year. The Porters, Ken with a background in maintenance, and Kim, a former Ace Hardware. Corporation marketing team member, decided to bring their experience together with this business venture. "I used to work for Ace Hardware Corporation and have love for the Ace brand-they deliver on their brand promise," Kim said. The business is part of the Ace Hardware family. but a separate business unit. They employ craftsman to perform up to one-day handyman jobs in a service area that covers Minooka/ Channahon, Shorewood, Plainfield, southern Naperville and portions of Joliet. This unique business caters to clients who want small jobs done, with an array of services such as hanging light fixtures or ceiling fans, patching and painting a wall or replacing a sink, and during the holidays, hanging Christmas lights. Clients can go online to set up a time for services, Kim said the client can choose up to three times and the office manager will work the job into the schedule and contact the client. The craftsman will call the night before to introduce themselves and verify the service, show up at the specific time of arrival (not a time window) assess the scope of the work, purchase materials and return to work. Kim said clients can purchase their own materials, but materials purchased through Ace Handyman Services come with a parts and labor warranty for the next year. Clients pay an hourly rate for work-a flat fee-- Kim said. Kim said the bonded and insured craftsman employees, not contractors, will also communicate with the client of any findings that need attention, "We will never ignore another potential repair." The Porters have ties to the area, so setting up shop in the community in which they call home was EXCEEDING CUSTOMERS' EXPECTATIONS, EACH AND EVERY TIME! an easy decision as well as building a business with the Ace Hardware name. "I have grown up in the area, to help serve the community I've lived in pretty much my entire life is really important. To be a part of the community and provide a good place to call home for work and the Ace brand was a big driving factor," Kim said. The couple strives to have a family like business as the office manager, with a background in accounting, has been a close friend to Kim, the craftsman are employees-not outside contractors, the company treats the customers as if they were family and Kim hopes to have repeat jobs as the business grows. The Porters hold a community service portion to Ace Handyman Services of Shorewood to high standards with volunteer work. Kim said the business has already volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and want more projects to better the community to come in the future. ACE HANDYMAN SERVICES 2019 S.
