May 15, 2008 // // Arlington Heights, Illinois, - Les O'Hara, owner of DUCTZ of Chicago North Shore, received the Franchisee of the Year Award from DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals at the DUCTZ International Convention in Orlando, Florida. The Franchisee of the Year Award is given to a DUCTZ owner who has been in business for more than 24 months, and is ranked the highest in various categories of success including total sales.

"O'Hara is a perfect example of how hard work and perseverance can truly equal success," said John Rotche, DUCTZ president. "We are proud to award Les Franchisee of the Year, and want everyone to know how much we appreciate his incredible efforts."

O'Hara's business is one of the original DUCTZ locations, and it realized an extraordinary 161 percent growth in 2007. DUCTZ of Chicago North Shore is now one of the largest DUCTZ service areas in the country.
