How Handy has Managed to Grow in New York

Handy Services now based in the city of New York focuses on the delivery of home services to its customers who are also mostly based in New York. In less than three years since the inception of the business by Oisin Hanrahan and his co-founder, Handy has tremendously grown and distinguished itself from the rest in the industry in and around New York City. Although the founders have the intentions of providing other home services to the customers, their main concentration since inception has been cleaning services which is about eighty percent and the other twenty percent on handyman services.

Oisin Hanrahan remembers how the idea of starting Handy Services came to him when he moved to Boston to undertake his MBA at Harvard University. Together with one of his roommates who later became the cofounder of Handy, they extensively discussed the idea which led them to dropping out of Harvard to pursue their dream business. Having saved up five thousand dollars, the two set off to start the business in New York. The two had decided to start up in New York because of the wide market that New York had become. It would have been prudent for them to start it in New York because of the demand for the cleaning and handyman services.

Handy has grown in leaps and bounds and has over 140 staff members and other independent contractors. This makes it easier for them to serve their customers efficiently and on demand. They are fully committed to client satisfaction and due to this fact Handy Services has invested heavily in experts who have been able to drive the company to greater heights. These attributes have enabled them stand above many cleaning and handy services operating in New York. Also the business has mainly concentrated on delivering their services to customers instead of trying to stifle competition. This is what has managed to make them the best in the business.
