From Integrity Springs Success: The Story of Ace Handyman Services

owner owner

From Conversation to Creation:

Ace Handyman Services started its journey with a commitment to
trustworthiness, ignited by the home improvement industry's lack of
ethics and a pivotal conversation. Andy Bell's words, "You know what,
it's time. If I have to spend the rest of my life in a cubicle doing the same
things over and over and over to make somebody else richer, I just don't
think I can do this. I want to start my own business, but I also want to
create something that serves me instead of me serving it." signaled a
desire for change. Colette and Andy Bell, the driving force behind our
brand, then set out on a mission to revolutionize the industry,
one promise at a time.


A Dream Takes Shape

In 1997 the first Ace Handyman Services office was born in the
basement of the Bell's Denver home. From there the core ethos of
the brand was born “We show up on time, looking and behaving in
a courteous, professional manner, communicating clearly with our
customers about every aspect of the job, and leaving the area cleaner
than before we arrived.” The results we're immediate- and overwhelmingly
positive. They further proved the durability of the concept by testing
it in California with three additional locations. The success there led
to the decision to franchise the concept.
