Keegan Hodges not only wants his air conditioning, electrical and plumbing company to be the best, he also wants it to be big.
Big like a full-size replica the company, Best Home Services, made of one of its vans. The Naples-based company hoisted the van to its permanent spot last month, 20 feet above its new call center at 16090 S. Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers. The van, similar to many in the Best Home Services fleet of 108 vehicles, features working LED headlights and illumination of the Best Home Services superhero-inspired logo on each side, according to a statement. It will face north and south-bound traffic.
“The blue van with the 'Bestman' character is symbolic of the excellence Southwest Florida residents have come to count on over the decades,” Best Home Services co-owner Keegan Hodges says in a statement. “So it only made sense that it would serve as a recognizable Fort Myers landmark as we look forward to serving the community in the decades to come.”
The 15,000-square-foot call center is expected to open in August and will house about 60 employees. Best Home Services is a full-service, residential heating, air conditioning, electrical and plumbing company, operating in Southwest Florida since 1980. It has more than 140 employees, with satellite offices in Fort Myers and Sarasota.
