Licensed massage therapists Marielle Shoffstall and Vincent Cicchetti join forces under the guise of Therapy Touch Massage, where they focus on treatments that assuage stress and reduce pain. Their soothing repertoire includes a signature custom massage, gentle Swedish strokes, and a more intense deep-tissue massage that targets buried aches. They also relieve mommies-to-be with prenatal treatments, which work to alleviate common maternity issues such as stiff necks, back pain, and the inability to hula-hoop. A variety of Spaaahh Therapies can enhance each treatment with pressure-point reflexology or hot-stone-and-bamboo fusion.
Originally branded as the Top Hat Drive-In, Sonic Drive In didn’t acquire its nationally recognized name until 1959—six years after its inception in 1953. Today, the franchise operates out of 3,500 locations across the country, making it the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants. Sonic Drive In specializes in made-to-order American classics, including burgers, hot dogs, milk shakes, and 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 Drive In’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 Limeades for Learning, which helps to fund educational projects and retirement plans for classroom guinea pigs.
The chefs at Francesco's Italian Bistro don't just cook up classic Italian dishes. They also orchestrate purely American entrees to create a menu full of traditional and modern pastas and pizzas. They toss noodles with savory sauces and seafood, or stuff calzones and strombolis with hearty portions of meat and cheese. Chefs also build a range of pizzas, with mix-and-match toppings that let guests customize their pies to satisfy cravings or attempt to replace a malfunctioning frisbee.
At Laser Trim Contours, a team works to stress the importance of healthy diet and exercise in weight loss.
