Mike Pierce Honored With Big50 & Guild Quality Service Awards

Hughes Kitchens & Bath owner Mike Pierce has been selected by Remodeling Magazine to join the Remodeling Big50 with a special designation for Service Excellence. He was granted the award at a gala dinner at the Remodeling Leadership Conference in Baltimore, MD on May 11, 2012, and was also featured in the May issue of Remodeling Magazine, which is a national trade publication read by more than 80,000 professional remodeling contractors.


Each year since 1986, the Remodeling Big50 inducts 50 owners of remodeling companies and of the 50 only 3 are chosen for Service Excellence. These owners have set exceptionally high standards for professionalism and integrity through exemplary business practices, craftsmanship, and impact in their community or the industry at large. Big50 remodelers run successful, often growing, companies of various sizes that have taken the lead in raising industry standards. The Service Excellence designation is for providing exemplary service and delivering an exceptional remodeling experience.


The Big50 selection process has become increasingly rigorous in recent years, and the result, Remodeling editors believe, is one of the strongest classes to date. All 2012 inductees “stood up to detailed examinations of their businesses and their books, and they all demonstrated an admirably deft ability to restructure, retrench, and flat-out hustle to remain viable in a challenging economic climate,” according to Remodeling.


Mike said “We are very honored to receive this distinction and our gratitude goes out to all of our customers, for they are the ones that spoke up and gave us this award. The award recognizes excellence in leadership, quality and customer satisfaction, and we are privileged to be named to this select group of remodelers.”


Remodeling editors, columnists, industry leaders, and the companies themselves make the nominations each year. Following a lengthy evaluation and interview process, the editors select the 50 individuals who exemplify the best of the industry that year, and who have something to offer other remodelers in proven practices. Winners are selected in these categories: business savvy, fine design, industry impact, market wise, movers & shakers, niches, sales & marketing, and teamwork. Mike was selected for the category of Fine Design.


Remodeling, published by Hanley Wood, LLC, is the leading publication in the home improvement industry. Designed to address the specific concerns of residential remodeling pros, the magazine is both a business tool and an industry leader for a market that reached $278 billion in 2011.


Hughes Kitchens and Bath has been successfully remodeling and enhancing the Canton, Akron and surrounding areas for over 64 years. As a full service remodeling firm, we take pride in our customer service; “To us it is not just an advertising line” says Mike Pierce, “Because we practice what we preach every day our quality and service has been recognized with numerous awards over the years”. Hughes Kitchens and Bath is one of the very few remodeling firms in the nation that still use only employees to perform the work. They have learned that when employees work in customers’ homes and businesses, the respect, cleanliness, and quality reaches a higher level. “Our goal is to always exceed the expectations in every aspect of a project.”
