Providing Comfort to Phoenix, Arizona since 1952 (602) 633-9555

 

History of Hobaica Services Inc.
Paul S. Hobaica founded Hobaica’s Refrigeration in 1952 in Phoenix, Arizona.  He was the son of immigrants from Syria, Lebanon.  He came to Phoenix at 6 months old, graduated from St. Mary’s Grade School and High School while selling newspapers downtown Phoenix.  At 18 he joined the Army and fought in World War II.  After the war he took classes under the GI bill in refrigeration and business at Phoenix College.  He had purchased some apartments and managed them while working a regular job.

His heating and cooling company began as a one-man operation out of his home.  Paul serviced the refrigeration needs of local small businesses and residences.  His business grew and he expanded his clientele.  He built a shop in 1959 in what was at that time county property outside of the city limits.  As Paul’s company grew, so did his family.  When all was said and done he had seven children who all worked in the company at one point or another.  In 1990, two of his sons, Louis and Paul J., purchased the business from their father.  The new corporation, Hobaica’s Refrigeration Co., Inc., continued to serve the air conditioning comfort needs of both residential and commercial customers as well as commercial refrigeration in the valley.  In 2001 brother Mike joined the partnership and added a new dimension to the company growth. In 2006 the name was officially changed to Hobaica Services Inc. to better encompass our many services.

Family members now include three 3rd generation Hobaica's, working their way up though the ranks. They are learning the family traditions of their grandfather and the importance of always treating the customer right. Just as their father and uncles learned, they are being groomed with an emphasis on exceptional customer service.
