  • Auntie Anne's - St. Louis
    In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,350 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options such as the eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs and slicing it into bite-size nuggets. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts. When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.

  • Green Cuisine
    A boxed lunch takes on a whole new meaning when it comes from Green Cuisine. This isn't your standard sad sandwich, apple, and cookie tossed into a box for a corporate event; these are sandwiches, wraps, and salads prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients for a palate used to the finer things. Take, for instance, a typical turkey sandwich boxed lunch: roasted turkey breast, field greens, red onions, and cranberry-walnut cream cheese on multigrain, paired with a choice of side, plus a cookie or brownie. That's just one of many options; strawberry walnut salads, thai chicken wraps, and vegetarian choices also can be featured. Along with Green Cuisine's many catering options, which also include custom hot buffets, hors d'oeuvres, and other small plates perfect for social events, the chefs also add a little sweetness to the options with french macaroons. Indulge in chocolate, lemon, pistachio, and other flavors, which are good for any occasion, including holidays.

  • The Pancake House
    Made-from-scratch recipes and fresh organic ingredients have been setting The Original Pancake House apart from its breakfast-spot competition since 1953. That's when its owners established an all-day empire committed to ingredients such as pure hard-wheat unbleached flour and Kerrygold butter made from 100% grass-fed cow's milk. Today, The Original Pancake House cooks across the country still construct scrambles and omelets from fresh Grade AA organic eggs. Powdered sugar lines the rims of oven-baked Dutch baby pancakes, and granny-smith apples simmer in oven-baked pancakes (two of more than a dozen styles of pancake on the menu). Even the toppings are made in-house, including whipped cream, specialty syrups, and sauces. To complement these flavors, staff fill cups with fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juices and coffee blended specially to match the Original Pancake House's menu and upholstery. Although each location takes on the local charm of its surrounding city, all of them share in common a homey atmosphere that welcomes families with perks such as color-in place mats and kids' menus. The Original Pancake House is open for breakfast, lunch, as well as brunch. The savory side of the menu holds an array of gluten-free and healthy lunch options such as 100% grass-fed meat products from nationally known Chicago news journalist Bill Kurtis' Tallgrass Beef company.
