Named Favorite Dry Cleaner by Modesto Bee readers in 2010, Del Rio Cleaners wins fans by treating attire and bedding using earth-friendly products and processes.

Two-piece suits ($12.70) receive an extra dose of dapper, and freshness retires to bed following the thorough cleaning of comforters ($25), bedspreads ($23.75), and over-counted sheep. Legs can swing free and easy beneath rejuvenated dresses ($10.25), snuggle inside newly cleaned pants ($5.75), or envy arms ensconced in jackets ($6.25). Free of petroleum and air contaminants, the GreenEarth process cleans clothes without harming the air, water, or other colors' feelings.
Straw Hat Pizza brings families and friends together to feast on California-style pies, signature Hot Hat sandwiches, and the crisp contents of a market-fresh salad bar.

Dinner DJs can also enliven suppertime soirees by spinning their own saucy disks through toppings including meatballs, pineapple, and spicy chorizo ($10.99+). Hot Hat sandwiches ($5.29+) bury succulent sliced meats and gooey gobs of cheese in crispy signature shells, making them ideal practice tools for archaeologists in training for an excavation on the moon.

More than 31 years ago, Mike Merrick left his career as a banker to found Fish Window Cleaning, a company that has grown to a franchise 220 locations strong across 40 states.

For Fresh Ideas owner Derik Bakker, flowers are more than just petals and stems. “They stir something,” he explains. “It’s not a ream of paper or a T-shirt. It’s something far more personal.” That stirring is why, three times a week, Bakker’s team pilots a refrigerated truck more than 100 miles to pluck the freshest farm-grown coastal buds. Directly sourcing flowers allows Fresh Ideas to keep prices down and also increases its flexibility when filling orders. Bakker can provide hundreds of flowers in bulk to clients 50 miles away while still handcrafting small floral arrangements for locals.
The unique nature of Bakker’s business also allows for a more personal interaction with clients. Unlike larger companies that are forced to interrelate with impersonal 1-800 numbers, Fresh Ideas staffs floral specialists who go over colors with clients, offering suggestions. They can even special order out-of-season flowers from as far away as South America or the secret NASA greenhouses on the moon.
This attentiveness has made the company a popular arrangement source for area restaurants and markets, and anyone who sets foot on the grounds can see that Bakker's passion runs deep. He and his 17-year-old daughter––coincidentally named Sarah Rose––have spent the last year planting seeds by hand in their own onsite sunflower garden. He tells those who ask that they grew the blooms "the old-fashioned way"—the same way he's grown his business.
McGrath Moving and Storage handles both residential moves around the block and business-related moves around the globe.

Prior to moving day, McGrath’s professionals are available to beef up the packing process, and their military-approved storage facility keeps belongings safe for short- or long-term periods.
Because The Soi Company uses kosher soy instead of traditional paraffin wax to make its candles, they burn longer, emit zero toxins, and double as a moisturizer when melted. Each biodegradable batch of soy is hand-poured into handsome containers, which include everything from transportable tins to large jar candles that can burn for up to 140 hours. Scents include fruity aromas such as blood orange, floral aromas such as gardenia, and sweet aromas such as crème brulee. Once customers have perused the online store, sniffed each candles image on their computer screen, and made their selection, The Soi Company ships each order direct to doorsteps.

Inhabitants requiring immediate temperature tweaking can take comfort in the urgency of 24-hour dispatch crews, who will arrive and remedy the problem before refrigerators try to crawl under the covers with their owners.
