Bob Sumerel Tire & Service Bob Sumerel opened his first shop in 1968 in an abandoned gasoline station. This business venture might have proved futile if Bob hadn't first revamped the dilapidated petrol dispensary into an attractive store brimming with tires for passenger cars and light trucks. He strategically set up shop in a high-traffic area, deducing that tires in motion are less likely to stay in motion as they wear out from overuse. Today, Bob's arsenal has grown from a few old gas stations to 26 locations manned by ASE-certified technicians, who skillfully nurture careworn tires with Bandag tire tread, refinish wheels and rims, and stay well-stocked with wheels for forklifts, earthmovers, and time-traveling Roman chariots. In addition to tire tweaking, the menu of services includes wheel alignments, brake overhauls, and shock repairs.

A grinning, toga-clad mascot hoists dinner entrees above his head on Funny Greek's illuminated outdoor sign, and pops out from a ship's steering wheel against the waves of the Aegean on the menu of Greek and American entrees. Soft, sliced pita bread envelopes beef tenderloin, chicken gyro meat, or crisp falafel topped with cucumber sauce and vegetables. The kitchen staff also prepares hot dogs with chili and cheese or Chicago style with hot peppers, tomatoes, and neon relish scooped from the jar by a gust of wind. Traditional Greek desserts, such as walnut, cinnamon, pecan, or chocolate-chip baklava, end meals on a sweet note.
