he finished serving for three years in the Israeli army, Eli
Ben, BFFH’s founder, came to the U.S. in 1994. A few
weeks later, he began working for a moving company, eventually
becoming a foreman. He then went “on the road”
as a tractor trailer driver, which allowed him to see the
country in an amazing way. During his time as a relocation
expert, Eli acquired a great knowledge of homes and their
furnishings, including all types of furniture assembly, home
installations and repairs, and the proper handling of antiques.
1999, Eli studied at the French Culinary Institute in NYC.
After a year there, Eli realized that his future was not in
cooking. He then joined his brother in New York City, helping
him in his West Village home décor store. It helped
Eli develop a great sense of home décor, which he now
passes on to his customers! When his brother decided to close
the store in February 2005, Eli had to figure out what he
wanted to do next.
Since he has always been very handy and knowledgeable about
home repairs, along with the experience he had acquired in
the U.S., Eli decided to take those skills to the next level
and open his own business. Voila, Boyfriend for Hire was born!
A perfectionist by nature, Eli takes great pleasure and satisfaction
in providing top notch home repair and installation services
for his customers. In the near future, he plans on expanding
the Boyfriend for Hire franchise to service every major metropolitan
