From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. Marshalltown saw its first Dairy Queen open in 1947, one of the first 100 shops to open in the U.S. Owned and operated by the Wollam family, this founding ice-cream shop still resides in the same building employees started selling sweet treats from 65 years ago.
The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal surprise fillings of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.
Fruit rules the roost on the other side of the shop where Orange Julius blends its signature frothy drinks crafted from fruit juice, ice, and a "magic” powdered sweetener that makes it disappear from most customers’ cups minutes after their first sip. Real fruit purée forms the basis for their smoothies, which also come in diet-friendly light versions that boast one-third fewer calories than regular ones.
Marshalltown Aviation charters flights to small airports not normally served by national airlines. Its Piper Cheyenne IIIA aircrafts can hold up to eight passengers each, and can cut long trips down with comfortable rides in the air. For those who want to learn how to pilot aircraft themselves, Marhsalltown Aviation also runs lessons for private and commercial pilot certificates along with flight instructor training. During introductory flights, potential aviators get a taste of the open sky and learn basic flight skills, such as how to tell which clouds are actually made of cotton candy.
Since 1979, Bruce Kennedy has leapt from airplanes more than 5,900 times. He opened Skydive Iowa in 1991, turning his love of thrilling free falls and bird's-eye views into a business. He and his team of USPA-licensed instructors teach visitors safety concepts and skydiving techniques before accompanying them into the air. At a height of 3,000 feet, skydivers leap for tandem or solo jumps. Jumpers drift above the earth for up to five minutes before a radio guides them toward a soft landing. Many of Skydive Iowa's instructors specialize in videography and can capture photographs or videos of skydivers for posterity.
When Craig and Lea Culver created the first Culver’s restaurant in 1984, they wanted to serve homemade burgers like Craig’s mom used to make. These burgers—now known as the ButterBurgers—are made with fresh, Midwest beef patties, and served on a toasty, buttered bun. The burgers are also what helped put Culver’s on the map—there are now more than 500 locations scattered across 19 states. At each restaurant, patties are cooked right on the grill. The other main hallmark of Culver’s menu is its rich, creamy frozen custard, which you can have drizzled with hot fudge or use as a foundation for a signature Concrete Mixer and have it decorated with Oreos and Butterfingers.
Lifepoint Dental Partners is a dental practice that uses minimally invasive techniques, which include composite resin fillings that blend in with enamel. Invisalign braces keep metal out of mouths as they guide teeth into more aesthetically pleasing positions. And the team probes mouthscapes with digital x-rays that emit up to 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
