Dear Awards Panel,

As a fellow Handyman, I’d like to recommend Johnny Thomas, The Handyman Can for the Torch Award.
I have been a professional Handyman in the East metro for over 20 years. As the Amazing Husband Handyman, I had a Business similar to The Handyman Can. I had my best year in 2004, and grossed nearly half a million dollars that year. So, I am in a very good place to know what it takes to have a Handyman Business work and service the community. I met Johnny at a continuing education seminar where he and I were honing our skills of taking care of clients, listening to them in a way that we really hear what they want, and that we speak clearly and honor our word and keep our promises to clients.

Since we met, Johnny and I have covered for each other when we’ve been on vacation and for emergencies. I never had anything but good reviews of his work, and as you can imagine, I would not trust my clients to anyone who didn’t work to the highest standards in the industry. One of the reasons I could recommend The Handyman Can to my clients is that he is completely Licensed and Bonded as I was. He also expects all of his sub-contractors to be fully covered by insurances and bonds necessary to protect all of his clients. These are standards that Johnny and I have set for the rest of the industry.

Once again, I like to recommend you give the Torch Award to The Handyman Can. He will be a stellar member of the group of winners of the award.

Thank you,
Russell Dedrick
