Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

How long does it take to prep maple- and ginger-glazed salmon for two? If you're working with Blue Apron, then the answer is around 35 minutes?the same amount of time it would take to cook a spiced lamb burger or some spring vegetable ramen. None of that time involves shopping, slicing, or researching the different cuts inside a cucumber, either. Blue Apron delivers every ingredient in pre-arranged portions, along with colorful, easy-to-follow recipe cards.

Customers who sign up for one of Blue Apron's plans choose a consistent day for their weekly supply of meats, veggies, and grains to arrive in a refrigerated box. In the interest of freshness, the food tends to be seasonal, as well as sourced from farms and family-owned businesses. Each meal amounts to between 500 and 700 calories per person, and there are plenty of vegetarian options, too.

Though the meals prepared at Revolution Sandwich are made with local ingredients, the flavors are inspired by cuisines from all over the globe. Chinese-style Peking duck fills fusion tacos, for instance, while a jerk marinade spices Caribbean pork sandwiches topped with pineapple and plantain compote. Still other options nod to the dishes of India, Italy, and Morocco. The flavorful sandwiches are layered on fresh breads or gluten-free baguettes or rolls, and served with house-made condiments such as tamarind chutney, a tasty alternative to hammering a tomato until it turns into ketchup. A selection of sides, such as truffle-salted potato chips and papaya salad, rounds out the menu.
