  • Borrowed Earth Cafe
    Borrowed Earth Café The Borrowed Earth Café is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:57 a.m. to 9:03 p.m. each day. Odd hours are just one way the raw, vegan food spot is doing things differently—and they’re renowned for the delicious results. They’ve been featured on “Check, Please!”, awarded five stars by Metromix, and earned the recommendation of the Michelin guide in 2012 and 2013. It all started in 2006, when husband and wife Danny and Kathy Living finished a 30-day detox. The program recommended spending a few days eating raw food before returning to a normal diet. For Danny and Kathy, a 'normal' diet meant a vegan diet, but they decided to try the raw food thing anyway. They loved it right away, but didn't love the 90-minute drive between them and the nearest raw vegan restaurant in Chicago. After the raw meet-up group they hosted swelled to more than 30 people, they realized that raw food was their calling and decided to open Borrowed Earth Café—a dream that came true in 2007. Today, from their spot in the heart of downtown Downers Grove, the couple dishes up a menu brimming with organic, raw flavor. Entrees range from a sweet potato quesadilla nestled in a corn-and-flaxseed tortilla to a gyro with "meat" made from savory spices, nuts, and seeds. For dessert, diners tuck into their signature vegan cheesecake and other specialties including a banana split made with almond butter, chocolate, and scoops of banana ice cream in place of the traditional steak.

  • Huntington Learning Centers
    In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey. Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
