More than 50 years go, Mike Ilitch was poised for major-league glory. An up-and-coming shortstop for the Detroit Tigers, his baseball finesse was blossoming when an injury derailed his sports career. But although the wound stunted his athletic aspirations, it steered him toward a new path, and on May 8, 1959, he and his wife opened the first Little Caesar's location, a then-unheard-of carryout-only joint. The career shift and novel technique eventually proved triumphant—today, the pizzeria's iconic, toga-clad mascot adorns storefronts on five continents. In each shop, staffers forge the signature Hot-N-Ready pizza, a freshly baked pie designed for instant pick-up, and warm, garlicky Crazy Bread. With a storied half-century under their belt, Mike Ilitch and his family strive to give back, supporting local organizations and creating its own charitable programs.

The story of Sperry?s Restaurant began in Jacksonville, Florida, with famed restaurateur and hotelier Burton W. Sperry, whose reputation for fine food and sterling service made him the toast of the South in the late 1800s. Fast-forward to 1974, when Sperry?s descendants?eager to uphold their great-great-grandfather?s commitment to dining excellence?started their own restaurant to honor his memory. Since opening its doors more than three decades ago, Sperry's Restaurant has expanded to two locations and developed a loyal following thanks to its continued dedication to cooking palate-pleasing steaks and seafood entrees and bending over backwards for its guests.
The aroma of Alaskan king crab legs and bacon-wrapped filet mignon converge to form a culinary siren song for diners sitting at tables made from the hatch covers of World War II Liberty ships. The restaurant?s bartenders sling libations down a hand-carved bar sporting a unique epoxy resin finished for a mirror-like shine, and a stone fireplace occasionally serenades guests with its crackling flames.
In 1937, Vernon Rudolph founded Krispy Kreme in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with the first location on South Main Street in Old Salem. Seventy-seven years later, his secret doughnut recipe lives on within hundreds of Krispy Kreme locations, serving premium sweet treats across the globe.
The entire doughnut-making process, which customers can view up close and personal at many of Krispy Kreme?s outposts, begins with fresh ingredients and ends with the click of a fluorescent sign bearing the words, "Hot Doughnuts Now." From the original, mold-breaking glazed doughnut to newer doughnut varieties, such as Chocolate Iced with Kreme Filling, Glazed Raspberry Filled, and Glazed Chocolate Cake, each round dainty pairs with piping-hot coffee for a compact snack.
At Forever Young Anti-Aging Clinic, director Dr. Joyce Peters and her team of experts combat signs of aging with numerous tools. Microcurrent face-lifts nonsurgically boost the production of collagen?a protein key to youthful skin?with tiny electric currents, which emanate from a wand passed slowly over the face. The clinic's deluxe facials produce a similar effect?but with strawberries, which are high in vitamin C. The aestheticians tap into strawberries' anti-aging potential with chocolate-strawberry masks and optional strawberry face wash. The clinic's focus isn't purely on the face, either. Noninvasive lipo treatments target fat cells all over the body via a choice of cavitation or light stimulation.
