H2O Car Wash and Detail's staff keeps cars in showroom condition with an emphasis on attentiveness and high-quality products. Meticulous hand washes are the team members' hallmark, and they perform each scrub down with soft, wool mitts instead of relying on machines or enormous carnival dunk tanks. To keep every vehicle looking its best, washes incorporate 100% carnauba wax to baby paint jobs and Lexol conditioners to gently maintain inside upholstery. The technicians rid interior and exterior dirt with a suite of washing and detailing services that leaves finishes glowing and interior fabrics looking freshly laundered. While the team does its work, motorists stay entertained in a lounge furnished with free WiFi and cable TV, and a kids' play area complete with video games works even better than hiring the GPS navigator to babysit.

After watching his father work in the glass industry for more than 30 years, Troy Mason followed in his footsteps by opening his own full-service glass shop in 1991. Not content with simply fixing cracks, Troy also developed an in-house technician-training program that allies itself with the standards set by the National Glass Association. Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.

Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown molding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations.
Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.
If the Hoopes Vision surgeons' experiences were a visual metaphor, it would be a landfill-sized pile of discarded glasses that represents the 42,000 LASIK procedures and 70,000 vision-corrective surgeries they?ve performed at Hoopes Vision.

By employing the use of technologically superior devices such as the Carl Zeiss Mel 80 and the ultra fast WaveLight EX-500, they perform LASIK treatments, cataract eye surgeries, and the installation of implantable contact lenses. They?ve treated a roster of high-profile clients that includes a broadcast journalist, attorney general, New York Times bestselling author, and pro athletes in the fields of soccer, golf, and underwater boxing.
When The Smart Car Wash’s proprietors began their business, they did not simply want to clean cars, but also wanted to incorporate [green technology (http://www.thesmartcarwash.com/category/8348/enviroment.htm) into their business out of respect for the environment. A LEED-certified facility, the wash is powered entirely by electricity from off-site wind turbines and all of its water is recycled in a water recycling plant. Additionally, techs use biodegradable chemicals to rid vehicles of dirt and grime and clear off suds with a spot-free rinse before adding deluxe touches such as a triple foam polish and dash dressing. Along with performing washes seven days a week, the crew spruces up vehicles with detailing services including carpet cleaning, interior deodorizing, and revitalizing auto bodies with waxing and synthetic paint sealant.
From their three locations, the auto mavens at Platinum Car Wash & Oil employ advanced water-reclamation systems and power-conscious equipment during cleaning and maintenance services. The facility's full-service car-wash tunnels spray paint jobs with Simoniz soaps, waxes, and foams before staff members dab rides with microfiber towels. They continue hands-on touch during signature or 20-minute express detailing sessions that unfold as auto owners explore the waiting area's magazines, complimentary WiFi, or leather couch cushions.
Opposed to using recycled or reprocessed oils, the crew spurs pistons with Mobil oil and complimentary top-offs between services. They also help boost car with lube services, such as transmission drains, tire rotations, and VPS fuel-rail services that dislodge harmful debris and misplaced CDs from fuel- and air-intake systems.
