We heart Ohio because it's the heart of it all — the epicenter of influential cities, including Chicago, Toronto, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, Nashville and the Outer Banks. It's the state where USA Insulation's story began…and continues.
In 1985 —a time when insulation wasn't required in most structures — our current president and CEO's father, Jeff Pitrone, decided to get new, state-of-the-art foam insulation installed in his home. Jeff said he could feel the difference immediately.
The rest was history.
From there, he approached the owner of the company that insulated his home, asking to buy into the business. Two years later, he became sole owner of that insulation company and USA Insulation was born.
Keeping Ohio (And the Country) Warm
Fast-forward to 2018, Patrick J. Pitrone, Jeff's son, now leads the family-owned franchise. USA Insulation is the first (and largest) residential insulation franchise in the country. And although we have more than 20 nationwide locations, we're proud to say we still make our flagship product, USA Premium Foam® Insulation, here in Ohio.
It's no secret to anyone who owns a home that insulation helps the heating and air-conditioning system maintain consistent temperatures. But USA Premium Foam goes where other insulation products can't, filling cracks and crevices inside a structure's existing walls, gently forming around pipes and wires — no teardown necessary.
Not only is it proven to be 35 percent more effective than traditional insulation products like fiberglass and cellulose, but it helps to reduce noise too. It even blocks outdoor allergens from entering, improving overall indoor air quality.
But we believe the greatest reason for our success is that our services help our customers' homes become more energy efficient. In the past three decades, we've helped more than 80,000 home and business owners save tons of money on electricity.
Make Our Success Yours
Patrick J. Pitrone is one of this year's Smart Business Family Business Conference honorees. The interactive workshop, hosted by Cuyahoga Community College (a.k.a. Tri-C), has a number of speakers lined up to share everything from the struggles to the successes of running a family-owned business (while repping a little Buckeye pride).
The Pitrone family says an important piece of business is sharing your success. That's why they decided to give everyone a chance to have a piece of the Pitrone pie. Franchising a USA Insulation business of your own gives you the opportunity to be your own boss and build wealth on your terms.
Remember, when it comes to comfort at home, insulation is a necessity. And there's no better place to get the lifestyle you desire than with an industry leader, self-made in the beloved state of Ohio. Download the USA Insulation franchise brochure to learn more.
Here's to future decades of comfort, savings and energy efficiency. We look forward to keeping the Buckeye state (and the rest of the country) warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer with our Ohio-made product, USA Premium Foam Insulation.
