A science lab calls to mind test tubes, bubbling flasks of chemicals, maniacally laughing men in white coats—but rarely ice cream. But that's exactly where Curt Jones, chairman and founder of Dippin' Dots, came upon the inspiration for the tiny flash-frozen beads of ice cream. A microbiologist, Jones spearheaded the flash-freezing process of cryogenic encapsulation, a method capable of trapping flavor and freshness.

Beginning as a retail shop in Lexington, Kentucky, the ice cream quickly began to quell the tantrums of Fortune 500 CEOs all over the country. Having won numerous awards since he created a new way to enjoy an old treat, Jones stays true to Dippin' Dots’ roots, making the ice cream at the company headquarters in Paducah, Kentucky. New additions to the Dippin' Dots family include Dots ‘n Cream, a treat similar to traditional ice cream.

When lifelong friends Mark and Ren?e Cieslikowski and Brian and Linda Rich were tailgating for a Panthers game in 2002, a delicious smell wafted into the parking lot and changed their lives. On the back of the wind, the unmistakable smoky scent of barbecue rode in and inspired them to craft recipes of their own, leading them to eventually open up a Q2U BBQ Pit storefront in Lake Wylie.

At Q2U BBQ Pit, they have created a menu of tasty pit fare that includes chopped pork, sliced beef brisket, pulled chicken, and tender ribs, the recipes for which they have honed through multiple years of competitions. Not only were they awarded the South Carolina Masters of Barbecue award by the South Carolina Barbecue Association, but their North Carolina?style vinegar-based sauce was selected as the official sauce of the Democratic National Convention. They also match their meats with classic sides that include hush puppies, banana pudding, and peanut-butter pie.
