Answering Service

Get to Know the Family

Shooster Family

A true family business…Answering Service Care is a family business that spans multiple generations, through thick and thin, up and down, good times, bad times and all times.

Our dedication to our clients and to our employee team extends beyond our walls – and beyond business hours. When you become part of our family, we take your success and your satisfaction personally. Because that’s what family does.

We were founded by Herman Shooster when he bought Ding A Ling Answering Service back in 1974. Herman, who passed away in 2014, inspired everyone around him with his wealth of experience, both in business and in life. Today Herman and wife Dorothy’s four children, Frank, Michael, Stephen and Wendy, serve as co-CEOs of the company. Some people find it amazing that four siblings could work together without a “boss” – and yet it works.  In fact, our spouses work here too: Max, Alizabeth and Diane make major contributions towards our continuing business success.

The family that works together… The third generation of Shoosters is now making its mark on the family business, and we look forward to what the next 40 or 50 years hold for all of us! Our clients, vendors and callers tell us time and again that the spirit of teamwork and support our team brings to the table is one that makes working with Answering Service Care an experience that is both unique and overwhelmingly positive.

We look forward to introducing our business family to your business family!
