The Dyer family opened their first appliance repair shop on a dusty stretch of road in Fort Worth in 1945, and nearly 70 years later they're still at work tinkering over the ovens, refrigerators, and washing machines families invest in for their homes. Over the years their repertoire has come to include modern appliances such as microwaves and garbage disposals, and they can work with many major brands, including Whirlpool, GE, and Sub-Zero. Perhaps not surprisingly, they also conduct an appliance-repair academy that equips students to become certified professional technicians.

Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
