Every year the city of Alsip has a parade and block party to celebrate the 4th of July holiday.
This year my husband and I helped with the block party. We were on the planning committee for the community. My husband and I own a local business and this gives us a chance to be part of the community events. The business does very well. A couple of years ago, we moved from Chicago and started an HVAC repair business right here in Alsip, Illinois. We were going to start the HVAC repair business in Chicago, but the market was flooded with other heating and AC service providers. We found out that Cook County only had a couple of HVAC providers outside of chicago. There were no people or service providers available in Alsip. People were contacting companies from all over the county to service the area. That’s one of the biggest reasons why we chose to move our family. Alsip welcomed the heating and AC repair business with open arms. Business has been overwhelmingly successful thanks to the lack of other competitors in the area. We don’t take advantage of that fact. We still have the best prices on services in the whole county. We also offer Emergency Services 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. Moving to this small city in Cook County was the best move we could have made before starting our heating and AC repair business. I think it’s better to be a big fish in a small pond than a small fish in a big pond.
