A maid dabs a feather duster along a picture frame, while another polishes the hardwood floors with lamb's wool. Under the oversight of owners Marco and Lisa Modesto, the insured crews of Marie’s Cleaning Service arrive at clients’ homes toting certified-green and name-brand cleaning supplies. With these dirt-vanquishing implements in hand, they survey the space to tailor a cleaning plan to each home, which may include services from removing cobwebs to loading the microwave into the dishwasher.
At NU:U Laser Lipo, a team of laser technicians perform noninvasive treatments designed to whittle away excess inches from the body. The i-Lipo body-contouring treatments target the site where unwanted fat is stored. Using low levels of laser energy, a chemical signal is created, forcing fatty acids out of the cell membranes and into the tissues that can actually use it, such as the muscles, ligaments, and that kidney that no one invites to parties. The end result is often a silhouette slimmed up to 4 centimeters in a single treatment session, without surgery or downtime.
Happy Maids' housecleaners pride themselves on always arriving promptly, armed with all the products needed to do their job and vans stocked with rows of brand-name cleaners and industrial-powered vacuums. The professionally trained and fully insured crews have cleansed businesses and houses throughout Chicago's northern suburbs for the past 27 years. During that time, the company adopted the use of eco-friendly products and practices to help both their clients and the environment. Maids wield vacuums with HEPA filters to keep particles from polluting airspace, and utilize Murphy's Oil Soap instead of vinegar on hardwood floors to preserve their finish and save condiments for the traditional postcleaning fish and chips. Happy Maids also ensures consistency by sending the same team of maids to clean the same locations week after week.

Originally opened as the Top Hat Drive-In in 1953, Sonic has grown into a burger-franchise mecca that today operates out of 3,500 locations across the country, making it the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants. Sonic specializes in made-to-order American classics—including burgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, and marshmallow Ford Thunderbolts—which customers order and receive without ever having to leave their cars. Unique menu items include toaster sandwiches stacked on thick slices of texas toast, as well as the brand’s signature tots and fresh limeades.
Sonic’s numerous awards include a 2011 Zagat survey ranking it among the top five fast-food restaurants in three categories: Best Value Menu, Best Milk Shake, and Best Drive-Thru. The benevolent eatery has also donated more than $2 million to public schools throughout the country through their program Limeades for Learning, which helps to fund educational projects and retirement plans for classroom guinea pigs.
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their children's development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
