The History Of The Famous Stove Lady
I was always thinking outside of the box and striving for more. I ran the business at age 12, graduated high school at age 16, graduated college at 22, and starting running this business at age 28 after the untimely passing of my father.
My 11 year experience in Corporate America prepared me for everything from sales to internal quality controls. It ensures you get the job that is right for you and that your experience leaves you wanting more.
Running a regular appliance sales and repair business was not enough for me. I saw the need to help others and dived in head first. People started hugging me for saving their stoves when others said it wasn’t possible. How can life get any better than that? Nothing beats being appreciated.
When a woman paid me $65 to pick up her vintage Chambers range a man walked by and bought it for $1,100 before I could even get it off the sidewalk into my shop. He showed me where it was selling for $4,000. That was more than 17 years ago. I flew to the premier restoration company in the country and learned as much as I could about the business in five days.
I was lucky enough to work 1-on1 with Superstars in the industry, some of whom had more than 40 years experience in antique and vintage stove restoration. Through their generosity and mentoring, I learned enough to build a successful business. And in 2016 I stopped repairing all major appliances and start focusing solely on vintage gas and electric stove restoration, repair and cleaning. We stock thousands of parts in my 8,000 square foot facility.
I took the information learned and applied it not only to Chambers stove restoration and common brands such as Roper, O’Keefe & Merritt…I started to restore brands that other restoration companies don’t; I repair and restore commercial ranges such as Garland, Vulcan, South Bend, and Wolf, brands that are no longer available for residential clients. The manufacturers won’t even service them, but we will. We upgrade them during the restoration process and install additional insulation, spark ignition, and much more. Sometimes the stove restoration is done in your home because Innovation is my middle name.
I am proud to be a Preferred Authorized Blue Star service company. I am also proud of our 5 star ratings online. I work hard to ensure that we stand up to our reputation for excellence. You can’t please everyone but we work hard to make sure each and every client is happy.
