Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
Glass Doctor's uniformed technicians pride themselves on being able to fix any type of glass, whether it's for a home, vehicle, or storefront. For residences, they outfit windows and doors with low-emissivity glass panes that reduce glares, control room climates, and detract ultraviolet rays more effectively than outfitting your house in a T-shirt. Depending on the damage, they can mend windshield nicks during repair services or do a full replacement with original-equipment-manufacturer windshields, which sport a lifetime nationwide warranty at more than 300 locations. For customers that need a specific shape or style of glass, the staff can design, cut, and install custom mirrors, shower doors, and tabletop glass.
