In 1998, Don and Linda Eckles founded a simple drive-thru coffee shop. They named it Scooter's Coffeehouse in honor of their daughter, who had gained quite a reputation for speed on the baseball diamond, and their mission became to help their customers “scoot in and scoot out” as quickly as possible.
Today, the Scooters franchise spans nine states and more than 115 locations, some of which cater to people in vehicles and on cows with their drive-thru-only service. At each coffeehouse, friendly baristas brew steaming hot mugs of the house blend, a rich medium-roast blend of Indonesian and South American beans. They also craft hot and cold lattes, fruit smoothies, and sweet tea lattes, and dole out gourmet cookies, scones, and cinnamon rolls. To further satisfy sweet teeth, Scooter’s creamy mounds of self-serve frozen yogurt await more than 40 candies and fruits.
Juice Stop uses fresh, nutritious ingredients to whip up their low-temperature, high-energy smoothies and protein shakes. Make over your morning routine with a Coaches' Choice smoothie (skim milk, chocolate, yogurt, and cappuccino mix), or jog through a Marathon (orange juice, bananas, and strawberries). Protein-packed options such as the World's Cup (skim milk, chocolate, peanut butter, and yogurt) are hearty enough to replace a meal or glue the legs of a G.I. Joe onto a Barbie. All smoothies are blended from scratch (no mixes are used) and can be spruced up with added nutrient blends to boost energy, metabolism, and the immune system.
During a 60-minute deep-tissue massage, one of the Massage Clinic's friendly, professional therapists will give your body a break with an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle-grain pressure. The customized knead employs a combination of knot-pummeling techniques to rid sore skeleton-casings of aches and pains. Treatment may include tactics from neuromuscular therapy, in which long strokes traverse the lengths of single muscles, or medical massage, a results-oriented practice that specifically targets conditions diagnosed by Doogie Howsers of all ages. Elements of Swedish massage, the most popular type of massage, may arrive on a Norse longship to melt your muscles like beeswax, erase tension, improve blood flow, and awaken the lymphatic system.
Directed by column-calibrating expert Dr. Alex Kallio, Comfort Chiropractic's dedicated team strives to reverse the body's mechanical hindrances and restore balance to the musculoskeletal system. Journeys of spinal alignment begin with a consultation and exam to identify areas of annoyance and concern. Dr. Kallio may request x-rays to further unearth blights such as breakage, curvature, and recreational marble consumption. From here, patients undergo an adjustment to ease discomfort. Depending on the patient's main concern, the spine may be reworked with the traditional diversified technique, manual low force, or a gentle hand-held device. Groupon holders also undergo two modalities of mechanical-traction massage. These treatments ease vertebral muscles and stressed cerebrums in tandem atop an automated table that cycles up and down the backbone, loosening knots and disgraced friendship bracelets.
At Revitalize Massage + Spa, soft lighting sets the tone in private treatment rooms, where attentive therapists address clients’ aches, pains, and aesthetic concerns with custom-tailored body services, including massage therapy, exfoliation, and body wraps.

Depending on the clients’ desired results, the staff can perform a slew of treatments, such as dry brushing to remove dead skin cells and leave the whole body buttery soft. Massage therapists can tackle old sports’ injuries or everyday tension with a massage selection that includes Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy. Additionally, the spa offers mobile massage services, where a therapist travels with a specialty chair to sites where massages are needed most, such as offices or the parents’ sections at youth soccer games.
