Mills Cleaners' garment gurus spruce up casual clothes and formalwear with services that range from dry cleaning to wash-and-fold laundering. They use in-house dry-cleaning equipment to purify clothing of all shapes and sizes, from petite women’s dresses to the Statue of Liberty’s Hawaiian shirt collection. They ensure down comforters and sleeping bags emerge soft and fluffy, and that bomber jackets look like new after a leather-cleaning service. The team also preserves wedding gowns for future generations.
Like many good ideas, the one for this business came from Dan Rather. A group of friends interested in starting a business venture together were watching CBS Evening News one night when a report on the high costs of dry cleaning drew their attention to the profession. With an entrepreneurial spirit, the founders scoped out local dry cleaners and developed a business model that allowed them to clean all garments for a fee that’s as flat as the planet we walk on. Today they clean more than 1,200 items each day and continue to grow, thanks to their onsite, environmentally friendly equipment that cleans consciences as well as garments.
Heartfelt notes from Bottled Up Emotions let loved ones know how much you care. Here's how it works: participants fill out a simple questionnaire with personalized messages to their special someones, which can be as succinct as "Be mine" or as specific as ?Tax evasion is a serious offense.? The Bottled Up team will then send out those messages for a Valentine's Day arrival. At the end of the year, the team also crafts festive Christmas messages for children and family members.

Any bakery that bakes colorful cake pops has a healthy sense of fun, but The Mississippi Gourmet has a healthy sense of glam. To make the shop's trademark Glitter Delights, bakers slather fresh strawberries in chocolate and then dust them with a coat of edible, flashy glitter. The bakers make sure their chocolate-dipped cake pops don't get lonely by whipping up a daily revolving cast of cupcakes and baked goods that often do justice to local culinary traditions with red velvet cake and a pound cake as airy as Dolly Parton's beehive.
