Businesses that need more competition

This is an offshoot of the thread below. What are some businesses in town (the field, not the specific company name, to avoid offending anyone) that seem to need MORE competition because they act like they don't really want your business?

For me, it's fence builders and spa/hot tub repair. I currently need both badly, and nobody wants my money!

I had Pool Guy fix my heating element in my spa a few years ago. They did a fine job but just showed up unannounced and helped themselves into the back yard which I thought was a bit weird.

I agree with rc_cat: internet and electricity are monopolies here.

Better car wash place. Like the places in downtown Houston that wash by hand and for a cheaper price. Just go down by the galleria area and look.

General contractors and landscape guys.

KidDoc, how long did it take for them to show up (unannounced)?

I've tried 4 different places and nobody seems interested in even trying!

2 particular types of ethnic foods could use some competition.

Would love to see Shiraz challenged by a Fadis type establishment. Fadis itself would make a killing here.

I like Taz, but I'd love to see them pushed by another legit Indian restaurant.

Agree on the car wash post from above. Need a hand car wash spot that is affordable, and that wont wreck auto paint .

More home cooked options for breakfast.

If it was home cooked it wouldn't be a business.

The Galleria is not in downtown Houston.

Perhaps no more a slam dunk business in CS than Fadis.

There is already competition for Shiraz - I love Zands in Bryan a little better than Shiraz.

Another airport shuttle service. Ground Shuttle can be very unreliable and unresponsive. Quite a few folks I know have missed flights because GS simply never showed up. Competition might inject a little responsibility into them.

Sometimes too much competition is bad though. There are so many nail places in this town that they don't care if they do a good job or not. Repeat business is of no concern to them. Very frustrating!!

That doesn't make sense. They need repeat business.

I TOTALLY agree that there are too many nail places, but I don't understand the logic?

When I get bad service, I go to one of the 100 other places. They know that people will eventually make the rotation to them. Very few of the nail places are hurting for customers, and so many of them do a bad job.
