HOW WE BECAME THE BEST LOCAL HANDYMAN (HANDYPEOPLE)

It was March 2020, we all remember when that was

During March of 2020, the world was changing with Covid-19 and Pennsylvania had just gotten the word to quarantine. I, Derek Anasiewicz, Founder and CEO, lost my job as a restaurant executive. Rather than surrender to the circumstances, I decided to create a company doing something that I truly love – hiring and retaining the best people I can find.  While I never had worked professionally in the construction industry I realized quickly that leadership is the same no matter which industry you work in.  We’re a team of incredibly talented people striving to be the IDEAL choice in home improvement.  It’s tough at times, however when you’re doing something you sincerely enjoy, the results outweigh the obstacles. This is how we quickly became the best local handyman (handypeople)

How we became the Best Local Handyman

Our family business started as a handyman company, however, I never called it a “handyman” company because of my two daughters. I always tell my girls that they can do anything a man can do, so I decided to name the business “handypeople” to be inclusive of everyone. We are proud to have both men and women working for us.

We quickly realized that this business was more than just a company limited to handy work. The amazing people we have onboarded allowed us to expand our services. In January of 2021, A to Z Family of Businesses officially launched adding Electrical and Plumbing to our list of services.

Since March 2020, we have completed over 10,000 jobs and we now have an entire team of managers, administrators, and service technicians working daily.

What’s Next? Glad you asked.  Our goal is to become the one stop shop for all your home improvement needs.  When you have something you need fixed in your home we can become the 1 company to contact to take care of it all!
