Dan and David Dykstra have declared open season on those buzzing pests that leave itchy red welts or worse in their wake. Armed with backpack-mounted spray systems, they work with the crew at Mosquito Squad of Grand Rapids to take aim at airborne pests, leaving yards and campsites free of mosquitoes, ticks, and mayflies that only buzz the first three bars of Born in the U.S.A. By exterminating these bugs, they hope to prevent the ills they carry, such as West Nile virus and Lyme disease, and make being outside more enjoyable.
A1 Irrigation deploys teams of professional techs into the verdant landscapes of western Michigan to beautify its exteriors. Their grime blasters have returned the once-splotchy façade of the Paul I. Phillips Recreation Center to its original salmon color with pressure washing, and keep lawns lush by repairing in-ground sprinkler systems and installing new heads where broken spigots or ink-spraying squid used to be.
Allure Limo Service aims to make everyday clients feel like celebrities, ferrying them to and from events in plush limo buses capable of holding up to 14 people.

Michael Raymond, owner of Grand Rapids Pizza & Delivery, has had a long relationship with the food industry. He can relate to any driver of an armored vehicle who long fantasized of one day manufacturing the gold bricks inside—while selling corrugated pizza boxes in West Michigan, Raymond dreamed of opening his own pizzeria, which he did in 2004. After many requests to incorporate fresh, local ingredients into his pizzas, he and his crew are able to top housemade crusts with locally acquired vegetables and meats procured from local butchers. Those ingredients inform the flavor of 19 specialty pies and 20 specialty subs.
