Breath E-Z Health Care employees and city leaders marked the business’ 30th anniversary Wednesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

According to Yvette Phipps, Breath E-Z was founded in 1982 by her parents, Ronald and Dorothy, with one location in Breckenridge.

The business expanded more than a decade ago, she said, to include the Mineral Wells store at 400 S.E. 1st St.

Her parents initially established the business “on a whim,” Phipps said, explaining its success is due to loyal customers.

“We are 100 percent about the customer,” Phipps explained. “They always come first.”

She said she is grateful that current customers recommend the business to others.

“Our business is a lot of word of mouth,” she said, explaining referrals have been an important factor throughout the past 30 years.
