About Ding-a-Ling Answering Service
It is important to work with a company deeply rooted in the industry. We stand behind our vast experience and want our clients to know exactly who they are working with. Our company has a long history of success, and we are very proud of that.
Almost 40 years ago a man named Herman Shooster, had a business plan and a dream. He wanted to run his own successful company and offer great answering services to the public. This entrepreneur had wonderful work ethic, even at a very young age. Mr. Shooster had been working in the service industry since he was a very young boy. By the age of 12, he was pumping gas at a station owned by his dad in Chester, Pennsylvania. As an adult, he served in the Pacific as a medic during World War II. He then went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Temple University.
When it All Began
After many years of owning and operating a very popular local fast food restaurant with his brothers and dad, Herman Shooster packed up his family and moved to sunny Florida. It was then that he acquired Ding-a-Ling Answering Service. This business started out as a modest operation and has grown considerably over the years. Even though the expansion has been great, the family still remains to be a big part of the business. All four of the Shooster children; Michael, Frank, Windy, and Stephan, still work in the offices with their father.
Changes Over Time
Although the company has been evolving from the beginning, the advent of the Internet is what really gave Ding-a-Ling Answering Service a way to access the best resources. During the past ten years is when the company has really started to blow up; which is pretty impressive for a business that had already been around for 30 years! The company has opened many different departments but answering service is still our main focus. The technologies we have implemented have allowed us to triple in business in recent years. Although we have come a long way, we still have big plans for future growth. We plan to design and implement even more convenient and efficient systems in the near future.
