Every year the Better Business Bureau (BBB) selects one business to receive the Torch Award, an award that honors ethical business practices throughout the year. The nominated companies go through intensive screening and are chosen by an independent panel of judges. The most recent Torch Award has been given to Aloha Construction of Lake Zurich, Illinois. Aloha Construction was originally nominated because of their immense contributions to the local community.
Aloha Construction takes part in many various community projects, the main being Learning Express. Through this program a big shopping spree is funded for a local family in need. This past year Aloha partnered with a local youth service to find a single mother with four daughters to receive the shopping spree. The four girls were given 60 seconds to grab as many toys as they could, and ended up going home with over $7000 of products. They have also funded tickets to Chicago Bulls game vs. the Houston Rockets for a boy who has had to have multiple surgeries due to a serious heart defect. In addition to these specific acts of kindness, Aloha construction has held fundraisers through various sports games and the Boys and Girls Club.
Not only does the company care for its community, it cares vastly for its customers and employees. Employees are ensured to receive the absolute best training possible and to then provide quality service to their clients before, during, and after a job is done. President and CEO of Aloha Construction David Farbaky. is quoted saying, “Our desire is to stay focused on what we do best; provide outstanding products and unsurpassed customer service.
Aloha construction is a family owned company that has been providing general contractor services including roofing, siding replacement, and gutters for a decade now. It is all of these pieces put together that won them the Torch Award this year, and they are beyond grateful for it. They will definitely continue to do great things within their community.
