Rick Bell formed Harvard Business Services, Inc. on March 2, 1981. Competitors then were big and well established. But Rick conducted business with a philosophy that allowed Harvard not just to survive but to thrive, emerging over time to become an acknowledged leader in the business formation industry. His philosophy focused on a highly personalized style of customer service, understanding that beyond the mechanics of forming a business there were dreams and aspirations. A customer’s individual questions and concerns were important and special, and that’s how they were treated.
Rick also decided that a customer’s business formation costs should be fixed, predictable, and affordable. And, customers should get a lot of value for their money. After 30 years and tens of thousands of business formations later, that same approach is still the signature of our culture and way of doing business: speed, efficiency, expertise and affordability, all delivered with the Rick Bell legacy of personal service.
Headquartered in Lewes, DE, Harvard Business Services, Inc. today is the leading provider of business formation services. Along with the HBS brand of fast, personalized service, customers soon discover a number of other traits that set Harvard Business Services, Inc. far apart from the rest.
