Our Company

A family-owned business for 20+ years

Fred Butcher, founder, began his education early. He learned the appliance repair trade from his father Eugene Butcher who owned Gene’s Appliance in Painesville, OH for many years. Growing up, Fred was witness to his father’s courage and determination that allowed him to support a family of eight.

Fred opened his own appliance business from the basement of his home in the 1990s. Fred’s Appliance has since grown to cover five counties in Northeast Ohio with a team of local technicians to serve each.

As his reputation in the industry grew, Fred was able to assist in the development of an appliance repair training program with Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, OH. He was hired as a contracted instructor by Lakeland for nearly two years before taking the initiative to open his own training facility.

We are a proud family-owned business with over 50 years of combined experience. We pride ourselves in offering unparalleled appliance service in Northeast Ohio and support the appliance industry on a national level by offering a national appliance training program like no other.
