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.

Right Choice Painting & Construction takes multiple categories

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. “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.
