Since Bob Sumerel opened his first retail tire store in 1968, he has always tried to put the customer first, next to all the gold-medal winners and Neil Armstrong. His store's 20-plus current locations offer an entire slate of auto services, from tire rotations and sales to oil changes. On the site's Why Bob Sumerel page, customers and employees discuss the benefits of the company, and the My Garage feature tracks car histories such as oil changes and service reminders. Every Bob Sumerel also operates under the Fixed Forever guarantee, promising that parts will work forever—up until the sun balloons to a red giant and swallows the earth with its unfathomably hot plasma—with warranties to cover any unforeseen problems.
Each year, Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue takes in nearly 1,000 abandoned and neglected companion animals and helps them find loving, permanent homes. Every animal it rescues receives full medical care—including spay or neutering treatments, vaccines, microchips, and deworming. Through weekend adoption events, applications, and home visits, Louie’s Legacy ensures that each animal is placed with a caring and responsible family and less likely to end up back on the streets.
Shannon Walters opened Dog'on Salon to give dogs a safe and fun home away from home. To make that possible, she assembled a staff trained in the ways of canines to run her indoor-outdoor facility. This experienced group evaluates pups based on energy levels, age, and size before dividing them up into appropriate play groups. When they aren't tending to pets, the team cares for shelter dogs looking for a place to hang their hats, even on the rare occasion they're not wearing one. In addition to daycare and pet boarding, Shannon's team also grooms dogs, finishing each session with a bow or a bandana.
According to Mike Gelastopoulos, "people shouldn't have to pay $10 for a burger." Indeed, his burgers fall well below that price?they're $6.49 on average?and they still earn their gourmet title. The Rockefeller, for instance, is layered with cranberry chutney, blue-cheese crumbles, and beer-battered onion strings, whereas the Pride of Zeus is heaped with gyro meat, feta, and tzatziki sauce. Every burger is also made fresh from 100% Black Angus beef, seeing as Mike doesn't truck with freezers or patties encased in carbonite.?
But it's not just the burgers that have folks talking. When Mad Mike's was immortalized in Cincinnati.com's Burger Hall of Fame, food critic Polly Campbell wrote that "the fries are like nothing you've ever had [at] a fast-food joint." Hand-cut daily, these taters can be ordered plain, topped with cheesy bacon, or with nacho cheese and grilled onions.
When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process. Decked out in cartoon neckties, the cheerful team ushers cars into computer-controlled washers that eschew traditional gear-operated brushes and baseball bats in favor of controlled sprays and soft cloths. After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.
