After vacationing in France in the early 1970s, retired physicist Carl Sontheimer was inspired to go back to work. He?d seen a new gadget?a mechanized food processor for restaurants?and wanted to retool it for passionate home cooks like himself. His machine was efficient and versatile: mixing eggs into puff pastry took 15 minutes for a human, 10 minutes for a trained chimpanzee, but just 15 seconds in the food processor. Immediately, revered chefs including Julia Child, Jacques P?pin, and James Beard applauded the invention, and Beard even wrote an entire cookbook dedicated to the machine. Decades later, Cuisinart?s line of innovative products ranges from waffle makers and rice cookers to eco-friendly nonstick pans.

Camera Corner opened its doors more than a half-century ago, starting with just 800 sq. ft. and two employees, supplementing its growing audio-visual services with greeting-card sales. Today, the third-generation business has expanded to nearly 30,000 sq. ft. and bustles with more than 100 employees ready to handle technological snafus, restore and enlarge photographs, and rent out projector screens for pre-vacation family briefings. The knowledgeable IT workers—who count ten Apple-certified specialists among their ranks—equip clients with computers and technology from all major brands, including products such as the iPad and iPhone, and sweep in to rescue data after crashes or fix keyboards after soda spills. Their photo and video specialists outfit shutterbugs and cinephiles with digital cameras and repair cracked lenses for manufactures such as Sony, Kodak, Canon, and Panasonic. The staff can even help safely dispose of used and broken equipment, collecting old computers, TVs, circuit boards, and cameras for transport to a hazardous waste facility, to ensure old technology doesn’t wind up in landfills or hitchhike its way back home.
