Though he's happy to shoulder the burden of working out payroll, taxes, and accounts payable for small business owners, Jason Kubis adheres to the Teach a Man to Fish school of thought when it comes to accounting. The owner and accountant behind JMK Bookkeeping divides his time between routine accounting services and a slew of seminars and classes. In the latter, he helps folks negotiate the sometimes thorny landscape of industry-standard QuickBooks, whether they need help setting up the software, getting it to work with payroll, or using it to chart exactly how much their growing children will eventually owe them.
Years ago, the owner of Blessed Bee Cupcakes started her business in the kitchen of her own home. She lovingly sifted flour and beat fresh eggs for made-to-order baked goods. Word of her cakes and cupcakes started to spread through the community, and she was eventually able to open a bakery in historic downtown Fond du Lac. There, she crafts treats using local, seasonal ingredients; recent specialties include pumpkin pie spice cupcakes and vanilla bean cupcakes infused with vanilla bean seeds from Village Market. Patrons can also order specialty cakes decorated with smooth fondant or buttercream icing.

Hockey players and figure skaters alike find a home here, with leagues and lessons awaiting those looking to hone their craft.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists. Use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($19–$32) and lean back and dream of break-dancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head-hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring ($50–$65), highlights ($65–$100), or a perm ($65–$85). Prices vary by location.
Being a health-conscious foodie can be a challenge, because it’s not always easy to determine the history of how and where food is produced. The owners of Armstrong Apples Orchard and Winery have created such a narrative for their clients, growing fruit deeply rooted in their commitments to community and homegrown produce.
Sixteen years ago, they planted their first apple orchard, calling on friends and neighbors aged 8 to 80 for help. Since then, the farm has expanded and now grows 14 varieties of apples, peaches, pears, and grapes, which they serve fresh, baked into pies and turnovers, and pressed into their award-winning wine. Of these libations, apple wine is the owners' specialty, and it ranges from the very dry—best paired with meat—to the cinnamon sweet—best paired with Halloween costumes.
In addition to fresh fruit, baked goods, and adult beverages, the farm boasts entertainment for kids and adults alike, including a playscape and a zorb ball, which is a 12-foot high hamster-ball-like contraption that guests climb inside to travel across an open 5-acre field.
