Dave Farbaky Is Gratified To Learn His Company Aloha Construction Wins Big BBB Award
The Better Business Bureau came up with their Torch Award 22 years ago. This award is handed out to a select few companies each year who have demonstrated they follow the highest standards of ethics in their businesses. One of the winners of this annual award in 2017 was Aloha Construction, Inc. of Illinois. This is a licensed, bonded, and insured firm which helps homeowners repair or replace the exterior components of their home. The owner and CEO of this company, Dave Farbaky, was handed this award during an event at the local BBB offices.
In order to win a Torch Award like Aloha Construction did the leadership of the company must have distinguished themselves from other businesses as one that operates with a high degree of integrity. There must be ethical programs in place that acknowledge the rights of employees, customers, and community members. The BBB originally came up with this reward as a way of encouraging business leaders to always conduct themselves and their business operations in an ethical way.
Another item that the Torch Award was designed to encourage is community involvement by businesses and their leaders. Dave Farbaky, for instance, started the Dave Farbaky Foundation. One example of him and Aloha Construction’s generosity came during the last Christmas season. He had reached out to Omni Youth Services to find a family who could really use some help. The family that was selected consisted of a single mom with four children. They were all given the opportunity to go through a toy store and grab as much as they could in one minute. They were able to grab about $7,000 worth of goods during this time and left the store very happy.
Aloha Construction also sponsors a number of Illinois youth sports teams. One of these is Roselle Medinah which operates a number of softball and baseball teams. Another team they sponsor is a hockey team called the Central Illinois Flying Aces Hockey Team. Additionally, they are sponsors of the University of Illinois’ athletic department which consists of several men’s and women’s teams.
