Owned by its head chef, Healthy Chef Express crafts fresh, balanced meals and delivers them to clients' doors for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each meal is whipped up from local and regional ingredients and delivered on the same day it was cooked so it never has to be frozen or encased in carbonite. The chefs emphasize well-balanced dishes, combining 35% carbohydrates from fresh fruits and vegetables, 45% protein from lean meat, fish, cheese, and other healthy sources, and 20% from good fats, such as sesame oil, avocados, and sources of omega-3s. Sample menu items include mesquite-grilled chicken with sweet-potato-and-chorizo hash and apricot-glazed boneless pork chops. Healthy Chef Express has a gluten-free menu available to accommodate clients who have diet
Eco Educational Toys ignites imaginations and fosters environmental awareness with their 6-In-1 Solar Educational Toy kit. With the help of detailed instructions, fledgling engineers can cobble together six different gadgets sans glue from the kit’s 37 pieces. Construction sessions kick off with the assembly of a central solar motor that powers the toy without the hassles of replacing batteries or the danger of chopping logs for tiny wood-burning engines. Teach a newly minted robotic dog old tricks, or whip up one of two airplanes to keep their paper-made cousins from invading personal airspace. Other possible iterations of the toy include a graceful windmill, a water-loving powerboat, and a moon car well equipped to handle lunar roundabouts. Once builders have become adept at erecting one model, they can raze their creation and bring a new one to life.

For more than 100 years, United Parcel Service's recognizable brown trucks have been showing up on doorsteps in a timely fashion. Founded in 1907 as a messenger company, UPS has grown into a multibillion-dollar corporation by enabling commerce to travel the globe. Now the world's largest package-delivery company and a recognized name in specialized transportation and logistics services, UPS's legions manage the flow of goods, funds, and grandmas' cookies in more than 200 countries.
The UPS Store's obliging staff and reputation for reliable package conveyance attracts all types of packers, shippers, and printers. Packers regularly stop in for masking-tape rolls and other do-it-yourself supplies. Alternatively, senders can enlist the skillful packing of the store's staffers, who will deftly seal boxes and cushion contents with bubble wrap or styrofoam peanut-butter sandwiches. In addition to packaging services and supplies, UPS Stores proffer printing services for large-quantity flyer makers and mailbox rentals for lazy messenger pigeons. Each independently owned location abides by the company's rigorous cargo standards and solemn Pack & Ship Promise.
Who knows what kids need? Just ask a mom. Club 4 Kids is fully staffed by mothers. Back in 1992, Patty Stouffer couldn't find a reliable place to drop her kids off for a few hours, so she decided to create one. Today, parents drop their brood off at one of two locations. Here, kids get their hands covered in paint at the art center, exercise imaginations playing dress-up, and practice containing their road rage while driving play cars. Even older kids occupy themselves, by playing video or board games in the on-site clubhouse. Every two hours, the group breaks for a meal or snack, so kids are well-fed by the time their parents come to pick them up.
