For 20 years, Ken Joseph worked as a professional driver, transporting both products and people with a pleasant sense of humor and punctual service. Now the owner of Transit Solutions, he pours this experience into every door-to-door service he provides, while keeping an eye toward safety so his passengers can relax and enjoy the ride. With his Lincoln Town Car, he ferries travelers to and from the Denver International and Centennial airports. He also pilots an arsenal of SUVs with seating for seven people on their way a casino, ski trip, sporting event, or an Oregon Trail reenactment.
So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including Ball Park hot dogs. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with Premium Coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
The certified technicians at Lynx Customs know that, with a few simple upgrades, an old car can become something new again. That’s why they retrofit rides with quality equipment and services, most of which arrive with lifetime and extended warranties at no additional fee. They protect auto interiors and passengers with sun-blocking 3M window tints and guard exteriors from road debris with clear-bra film. Simple transportation pods become entertainment machines after techs install mobile video systems and wholesale car audio products such as head units, amplifiers, subwoofers, speakers, and gramophone horns. They extend entertainment installations to sea vessels and further protect rides and pedestrians with alarms and backup cameras.
For more than 100 years, United Parcel Service's recognizable brown trucks have been showing up on doorsteps in a timely fashion. Founded in 1907 as a messenger company, UPS has grown into a multibillion-dollar corporation by enabling commerce to travel the globe. Now the world's largest package-delivery company and a recognized name in specialized transportation and logistics services, UPS's legions manage the flow of goods, funds, and grandmas' cookies in more than 200 countries.
The UPS Store's obliging staff and reputation for reliable package conveyance attracts all types of packers, shippers, and printers. Packers regularly stop in for masking-tape rolls and other do-it-yourself supplies. Alternatively, senders can enlist the skillful packing of the store's staffers, who will deftly seal boxes and cushion contents with bubble wrap or styrofoam peanut-butter sandwiches. In addition to packaging services and supplies, UPS Stores proffer printing services for large-quantity flyer makers and mailbox rentals for lazy messenger pigeons. Each independently owned location abides by the company's rigorous cargo standards and solemn Pack & Ship Promise.
