The technicians at Sam's Wireless possess the skills to repair and unlock a variety of market-current smartphones. Techs can breathe new live into cracked iPhones by replacing the LCD screen, repairing damaged buttons, and replacing faulty batteries. Although water damage is typically devastating to today's dry-clean-only electronics, Sam's staff members clean away water molecules inside and out to bring phones back to the land of the living. Additionally, their unlocking services are good for a number of devices, including BlackBerrys.

During each private 45-minute lesson, Dance Magic Studio's head fancy-footer, Nick Felix, and his nimble squad can teach mildly experienced and advanced movers traditional ballroom dancing, including samba, waltz and tango, and Latin and swing dancing—efficiently exorcising demons from proms past or failed devil dance-offs. Nick has choreographed dozens of television dance programs; taught his magical moves to stars such as Robert Duvall, Lee Majors, Frankie Avalon, Mickey Rooney, and Tess Harper; and recently had his journey featured in the documentary show Gallery on the OETA network. He'll happily plan lessons around your schedule, giving personal attention and custom tips to individuals or couples. Ten thousand square feet of floor space frees eager shufflers and shakers to liberate stiff legs and attempt complex maneuvers without accidentally stepping on any nearby feet or Bigfeet.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change package, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians—all of which have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)—service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians offer preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical-system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
As you might deduce from its name, Color Correction Salon's specialty lies in setting strands right after botched home dye jobs or summers spent touring with Jem and the Holograms. Owner Tom Sollock has taken his tinting talents to hair competitions around the world, picking up numerous awards and medals for his vibrant, cutting-edge designs. While color re-touch is a house specialty, its not uncommon to find clients leaving with shocking streaks of neon pink or electric blue, which the stylists create with top-quality pigments or clip-in extensions that offer all the pop without the permanence. In addition to cuts and color treatments, the salon welcomes the opportunity to makeover heads and faces for weddings and other special events, and frequently hosts kids parties complete with mini manicures, facials, and colored extensions for each pintsize guest.
Alfredo's Mexican Cafe opened in Weatherford, Oklahoma, in 1998, in a tiny 1,500-square-foot building that could squeeze in 45 people at the most, but only if they were "back to back and shoulder to shoulder," jokes cofounder Bruce Hill. He never thought Alfredo's would get any bigger, and he was OK with that. But fate seemed to have other plans.
Customers kept coming back to Alfredo's for its large portions of Tex-Mex cuisine prepared fresh every day, and soon Hill was able to open other locations. Hill is grateful for his success and believes he should share it with others, so he donates a portion of Alfredo's profits to Manos de Amor, a children?s orphanage in Mexico, as well as a water ministry in Burkina Faso.
