2018 has been an exciting year for Dave Farbaky, the president and CEO of Aloha Restoration in Lake Zurich, Illinois. The Chicago Bears appear to be on a legitimate roll. Farbaky, a longtime fan, is all too happy to mix business with pleasure. Aloha Restoration is a title sponsor of each game’s radio broadcast.
Tom Thayer is a former Bears offensive lineman and one of the few veterans of the squad to sport a championship ring. The Bears won the Super Bowl in 1985. Thayer, who now provides the color commentary on Entercom’s WBBM Newsradio, is one of Farbaky’s all-time favorite players.
Aloha Restoration, which specializes in residential services, such as home upgrades, mold removal, and water removal, also partners with WSCR 670 The Score. One of the station’s most popular features is the “Bernstein and Goff Show,” which airs from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on weekdays. Bernstein is a Deerfield native and a leading fundraiser for local charities. Farbaky is one of his most avid listeners.
Thayer and Bernstein enthusiastically endorse Aloha Restoration. Joining with two of his idols to cheer the Bears to the playoffs — and, with any luck, the Super Bowl — has been a thrilling but humbling experience for Farbaky. “It’s truly an honor and a blessing for myself and all those who wear the Aloha uniform,” he said recently.
Aloha Construction, the original company, was founded in Lake Zurich in 2010. Initially a small local outfit, it has flourished to become one of the leading providers of general contract work in the Midwest. After just eight years, the family-owned, family-operated company boasts around 20,000 completed projects throughout Illinois and southern Wisconsin.
The Aloha team is made up of inspectors, installers, project managers, field supervisors, and claims specialists. They are committed to providing top-notch quality and unparalleled service. Roof replacement, siding installation, gutter maintenance, and a variety of other services are all in a day’s work. The Aloha leadership is strongly committed to timeliness, attention to detail, and competitive pricing. Courtesy, professionalism, integrity, and safety are guiding values. In 2017, Farbaky’s first company was awarded the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
Aloha Construction and Aloha Restoration, the sister company launched in 2017, are also admired for their involvement in and support of the local community. Farbaky participates in a number of charitable efforts around town. He founded the Dave Farbaky Foundation to help children in need. His businesses have hosted chronically ill children in VIP seats at Chicago Bulls games and have donated thousands of dollars to a special summer camp for children with cancer. Midwestern entrepreneurs are inspired by Farbaky’s generosity, success at a young age, and enviable work-life balance. Many look to him as a role model.
Farbaky’s new division Aloha Restoration provides residential services to all the Lake County area. It handles kitchen makeovers, bathroom upgrades, basement finishing, and other home remodeling projects. It is one of the busiest carpet cleaning services in the state. In addition, the young company is becoming known for emergency services such as mold removal, water removal, and smoke damage restoration. Mold and other pollutants left behind after a flood or plumbing failure are especially serious. Water removal, mold removal, and sanitation measures eliminate health risks to family members and pets. Time is of the essence, and Aloha responds punctually.
The company also offers thorough yearly home inspections. Spotting wear and tear early on prevents small, affordable problems from becoming huge, expensive headaches down the road.
Another nice thing about Aloha Restoration is its one-stop-shopping business model. Typically, one company is contracted to dry out a water-damaged home or get rid of mold. Another business must be contracted to redo the drywall or install a new shower. But Aloha Restoration can do it all. Working with one timeline and one budget is a hassle-free, efficient way to get several jobs done. Aloha’s expert water removal service, for example, often has properties bone dry in as little as 48 hours. Mold removal quickly follows.
In short, Aloha Restoration arrives, does the work, and leaves without homeowners missing a single moment of a Bears game. Farbaky wouldn’t have it any other way.
