A Shout Out for a Couple Central Oregon Businesses


The city of Bend is growing.  And FAST.  I read an article recently on KTVZ.com talking about how Bend, Oregon is the 4th ranked boomtown in the entire country.  This is pretty impressive given the population of our town.

As the popularity, and the population of our town continues to grow I thought it would be fun to highlight some local businesses that have popped up over the last year that are making a name for themselves.   i discussed one of my favorite local restaurants here.

Maid in Central Oregon

While this business isn’t particularly well-known, Maid in Central Oregon gets my vote for the best cleaning service in Bend.  The business was started in the last year by a couple ladies that wanted to offer a great service at an affordable price.  They have done a phenomenal job handling all of the cleaning around our house.

In fact I’m quite positive that our house has never been this clean.  They are fast, efficient, and wonderfully friendly.  I feel lucky to have found them when I did and I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a professional house cleaning service.

Those that have hired maid services in the past understand that oftentimes you don’t get what you pay for.  I can honestly say that these ladies hustle more than any other service I’ve hired in the past.  So give them a shot.

Bend Oregon Pest Control Pro's

Now I can honestly say that there is very little that is exciting exterminators.  But when you come across a company that makes customer service their number one priority I feel it is important to recognize the effort.  Bend Oregon Pest Control Pro's does exactly that.

We had to hire them to come out to take care of a little rodent problem and they were fast, courteous, and very efficient.

As my husband and I were moving some of our summer gear out of the garage to make room for winter gear and Christmas decorations we saw some unwanted visitors in our garage.

Now I consider myself a pretty capable woman, but sometimes you just want someone professional to handle a situation like this.

The Barber House

For as long as I've know him, my husband has struggled to find a good barber.  His hair isn't styled in any particularly difficult way, but for whatever reason, he's just had a difficult time with it.

Recently a new barber shop opened up down the street from us next to Back Porch Coffee.  It's called The Barber House.   They style themselves a classic men's barber shop that offers a return to the old days when getting a haircut was simple and the time spent there was enjoyable.

They even offer a free beer while you're waiting in their comfortable sitting area.  I have to say  I was pretty impressed.  My husband told his barber what he wanted.  And he got exactly that.  It was pretty funny to see how excited he was about the whole experience.   And the best part is it only cost $20.  I wish ladies cuts were that inexpensive!

Tributaries Digital Strategies

Now I don't profess to be into all the home technology stuff.  But I will say one thing on this subject.  If my home entertainment system isn't easy to use, the I REFUSE to use it.

I cannot stand having to use 5 remote controls to turn on the TV just to watch a show.  And having to consult a cheat sheet to make sure I do it in the correct order is just absurd.

Recently we used a local company here in Bend called Tributaries Digital Strategies to help promote our website.  It's nothing huge, but we're looking to expand our business and I've been told that local search engine optimization and marketing is one of the best ways to do this.

It is quite simply the easiest thing I've ever used.  I would highly recommend them.

So if you're one of the many people moving to the beautiful area that is Central Oregon, I would highly recommend you check out some of these local businesses.  They are part of a booming local economy here in Bend and offer stellar customer service.
