A NEW LEVEL OF SERVICE

S

tepping out of the corporate world and into the community was a brave step for Ray Bowens, owner of Kwik Kar Vista Ridge. But that’s just what he did when he retired as senior vice president for Bank of America in 2005 and bought his Kwik Kar franchise.

Winner!

BEST AUTO SERVICE

Star Local Media’s Readers’ Choice winner in the Auto Service category knew he always wanted to own a business. “I wanted to be in the business where we served local people,” he said. “Kwik Kar Vista Ridge was up for sale, and I am now a mechanic.”

KWIK KAR VISTA RIDGE OWNER MAKES HONESTY TOP PRIORITY

Kwik Kar Vista Ridge, located at 2788 MacArthur Blvd. in Lewisville, serves Lewisville, Coppell and Flower Mound. Kwik Kar Vista Ridge’s multi-point oil change service is a preventative maintenance program that can extend the life of your vehicle, as well as catch small problems before they become much bigger problems. Best of all, Kwik Kar Vista Ridge offers honesty and integrity. “When I got in the business, it was really hard for me to find a place that I could really trust,” Bowens said. He felt that other maintenance facilities would try to sell him services or repairs that weren’t needed or were simply overpriced. “Most of our customers are women, and I believe that is because of the trust factor,” he said. By hiring the right people and giving them the right tools and a competitive salary, Bowens boasts a shop full of mechanics who have all been in the business for more than 25 years, giving Kwik Kar Vista Ridge the level of service needed for success.

Kwik Kar’s Multi-Point Oil Change service includes:

■ Oil change with up to

5 quarts of oil ■ Replace oil filter ■ Lubricate chassis if applicable ■ Check air filter ■ Check differential ■ Check power steering fluid ■ Check anti-freeze

■ Check transmission fluid ■ Check transfer case ■ Visual battery check ■ Check breather element

■ Check tire pressure ■ Check brake fluid level ■ Check air induction system ■ Vacuum front interior

if applicable ■ Check all belts ■ Check wiper blades ■ Check and fill washer fluid ■ Check A/C or cabin air filter

KWIK KAR RECOMMENDS A FULL SERVICE OIL AND LUBE EVERY 3,000 MILES OR THREE MONTHS.

Kwik Kar Vista Ridge offers a shuttle service to take customers home, and if it’s a major service like a new engine, Kwik Kar can provide a loaner car. “The absolute most important part is that our customer is satisfied and they got a good value,” Bowens said. “I have a lot of customers who have been with me since the day I started. “ A four-time Readers’ Choice winner, Kwik Kar Vista Ridge also takes the time to get involved with the local schools and teams as well as the Lewisville police and area churches. For information, visit KwikKarVistaRidge.com or call 214488-7737.

R

ight Choice Painting & Construction is no stranger to success. The 2013 Readers’ Choice recipient for Painting Company and Remodeling Company in both Coppell and Flower Mound has received awards for their service for multiple years based on their reputation for providing reliable, quality finish work. Customer satisfaction is their first priority and they maintain that throughout the duration of the project. Kyle Mederos, Operations Manager, Jeff Adkinson, CEO/Owner, Jan Wagner Adkinson, COO/Owner, Jordan Mederos, Office Manager, Scott Hinkle, Project Manager, Laura Peterson, Office Assistant

“We have worked hard, care about our customers by providing an excellent product, and giving them outstanding service,“ Chief Operating Officer and Co-Owner, Jan Wagner Adkinson said. Right Choice is a family owned business with Jeff Adkinson, CEO and Co-

Owner at the helm. Jeff and Jan’s daughter, Jordan is the Office Manager and Jordan’s husband, Kyle Mederos is the Operations Manager. The company offers a complete remodeling package with granite, tile, wood flooring, carpet, windows, interior painting, exterior painting, carpentry, roofing, and gutters. They service the Coppell, Flower Mound and surrounding communities.

“We do kitchen and bathroom remodels virtually every day. As a matter of fact, we nicknamed 2013 ‘The Year of the Bathroom Remodel’ since so many homeowners were updating their bathrooms,” Adkinson said. In 2012, the Governor of Texas and Texas Workforce Commission recognized Right Choice as the North Texas Small Business Champion. Also in 2012, the Coppell Chamber of Commerce selected Right Choice as the Business of the Year. For the past 3 years, Angie’s List has awarded them the Super Service Award. In addition to serving their customers, Right Choice is a dedicated community supporter and participates in multiple organizations. “We feel that it is our responsibility to

give back to our community that has given our family so much. Myself, my husband, Jeff and our daughter, Jordan, have volunteered our time to serve as Board Members and Executive Board Members for various local organizations,” Adkinson said. Right Choice has also donated thousands of dollars to numerous local groups in Coppell and Flower Mound. In addition, they have donated paint and services to projects such as repainting the Coppell Chamber of Commerce and the Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce offices as well as the Coppell High School Choir room. When the April hailstorm hit Coppell in 2012, they worked around the clock to secure homes in the area. When another storm threatened the area, the Right Choice family, along with their crews, left their own damaged homes and went out immediately in the community and began tarping roofs, securing damaged structures, even supporting a home’s wall that was in danger of collapsing to prevent further damage from the next storm.

Their years of combined efforts in quality service and support to the community continue to make Right Choice exactly that.

“Since there are so many painting and remodeling companies in our community, we are very honored that readers repeatedly recognize us. We go to great lengths to provide outstanding service to each and every one of our customers and that often times sets us apart from our competition. Right Choice Painting & Construction is proud of the work we do and very thankful that for the last five years we have been acknowledged by the local community as the Best Residential Painting Company and Best Remodeling Company.”

The company’s commitment to outstanding service is unwavering. With over 8,000 successfully completed painting, home improvement, windows, roofing, fences, general contractor and remodeling projects in the last eight years, Right Choice has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

T

he location of the St. Marin Apartments complex at 1717 E. Belt Line Road, within minutes of all the retail and restaurants that Coppell has to offer and proximity to all the major highways, gives it what’s needed to be one of the best places to live in the city. However, it’s the 13-person staff’s commitment to going above and beyond with customer service that gives them such a high level of customer satisfaction. Opened in 1999, and having won the Star Local Media Readers’ Choice award for Best Apartment Community every year since 2009, Marie Vion, leasing director, said it’s “very rewarding and gratifying to know the team went above and beyond to maintain excellent service and quality of St. Marin Apartment Homes.” St. Marin offers one- to three-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom townhomes in a variety of floor plans.

This makes it no surprise that this is her fourth year in a row to be nominated for the Readers’ Choice Award in the Real Estate Agent category.

Winner!

BEST E TAT REAL ESNT AGE

Greene said the best part about being voted a Readers’ Choice winner is having “the acknowledgment and recognition of the community, and knowing that what I do is valuable.” Her office is located at 546 E. Sandy Lake Road, Suite 100 in Coppell.

As an agent that works with Keller Williams Realty, she attributes her success partly to her always optimistic viewpoint and the relationships that she builds with her clients and team, and also partly due to the unique connections that she has in the real estate business. While most real estate companies syndicate to 50-60 websites, hers syndicates to 10 times as many. She is also a preferred member with realtor.com, which allows her to post enhanced descriptions and photos online. Along with being a real estate agent, Greene has also served as chairman of the Coppell Chamber of Commerce from 20102011, an Economic Development Committee liaison for the city from 2010-2014, and was named Coppell Chamber of Commerce Ambassador of the year from 2007-2009.

Trainers make the difference

CROSSFIT COPPELL CENTRAL TENDS TO INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

C

rossFit Coppell Central, voted Best Fitness Business by readers, opened a few months ago in October 2013. At the facility, located at 612 E. Sandy Lake Road, Suite 180, a five-person staff offers a unique workout style that combines cardiovascular conditioning, gymnastics and Olympic weight lifting in a high-intensity, constantly varied sessions.

Todd Szalkowski, owner and head trainer, said the best part about being voted Star Local Media Reader’s Choice winner is being “honored to have so quickly earned the respect of our members and our community.”

They were recognized for their first Readers’ Choice during their first year of business.

At the facility – which they refer to as a “box” – the staff works hard to create a community where everyone feels valued and welcome. Trainers take time to get to know their clients, not just their names, but their limitations and goals as well. This allows them to foster an environment where patrons can encourage and chal-

BEST FITNESSS BUSINES lenge each other and also produce noticeable, measurable results.

“We all work to create a community in each class where athletes are ... holding each other accountable,” Szalkowski said. Many people unfamiliar with the CrossFit workout believe that it is only for advanced athletes; however at CrossFit Coppell Central, the staff works to scale every workout and movement to each individual’s level of fitness. Each day the staff prepares a new workout. “Everyone will get an intense workout for their current fitness level; e.g., everyone is laying on the floor at the end of the workout, gasping for air,” Szalkowski said. People interested are welcome to attend a mandatory CrossFit Intro Class, which is available for free at 8 a.m. most Saturdays. New members must also fill out a liability waiver prior to working out.

s soon as Cutie Pie Pets opened its doors in 2007, the salon won over the hearts of pet owners in Coppell and surrounding areas. And it shows; Cutie Pie Pets has taken top honors seven times for Best Pet Service by Star Local Media readers. Cutie Pie Pets, located at 150 S. Denton Tap Road, Ste. 115, provides professional pet grooming services, including a wide range of options from nail polish to essential oil shampoo infusions.

This special attention hasn’t escaped Cutie Pie Pets’ clients.

Winner!

Owner Jaime Meyer said developing a relationship with clients and understanding their needs is key to success.

BEST PET S R SE VICE

“The biggest surprise is always how wonderful our clients are to us,” she said. “They bring us goodies from their kitchen, thankyou cards and show so much appreciation; it is amazing.”
