Chicago, IL --(PR.com)-- Handyman Matters Chicago was recently awarded multiple awards at the national franchise convention held in Jacksonville, Florida. The awards include Market Penetration Award, K.P.I (key performance indicators) award and Award of Excellence for Top Sales. The combination of these awards proves that Handyman Matters Chicago is an outstanding operation and really understands how to take care of their customers. Handyman Matters Chicago has also been awarded the prestigious 2009 Angie's List Super Service Award! This is the fifth time winning this award for Handyman Matters franchise owner, Janet Asbury.
Janet Asbury was the first female Handyman Matters franchise owner and has shown great success with running her operation. She was a former software saleswoman who wanted to control her own destiny by opening up a franchise; she has consistently been one of the most successful throughout the entire system. "I am grateful to have such a wonderful team working with me to ensure that our business and customers are taken care of to the best of our ability," says Asbury.
The Angie's List Super Service Award, now celebrating its 11th year, is reserved for companies who have achieved and maintained a superior service rating on Angie's List – the nation's leading provider of consumer ratings on local service companies – throughout the past year.
