Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey. Their local business has since blossomed into a national franchise with more than 400 locations across the United States, each adhering to the mission of enhancing lawns' allure with time-tested techniques, dedicated customer service, and dabs of foundation makeup.
Before Lawn Doctor's assiduous staffers unleash expertise on swards, they arrive at the client's home for a complimentary consultation to gauge each lawn's specific needs. Grass gurus can thicken turf with their patented Turf Tamer power seeder and foster healthy growth for grass, trees, and shrubs with fertilizer. Uninvited lawn assailants?such as grubs, ants, and grazing neighbors?shudder at the sight of Lawn Doctor's pest-control experts. The company also helps to preserve Mother Nature's receding hairline with organic lawn treatments and natural, eco-friendly products.
Craig and Laura Decker seem to have a difficult time making up their minds. They also seem to have a knack for turning this indecisiveness into an advantage at every turn. When it came to opening their new business, for example, they briefly wondered whether it should feature a wine shop, a wine bar, or a gourmet bistro. Their solution? All three.
This spirit of inclusivity pervades W.G. Kitchen & Bar, a Wine Guy company, where the Deckers pair seasonal wine varietals with globally inspired cuisine. Rather than choose between European elegance and New-American pizzazz, they settled on a compromise they describe as “Old World chic.” This label suits a menu that features small plates of housemade meatballs and bruschetta alongside assorted cheeses from around the world. The focus on small plates is in keeping with the Deckers’ have-it-all mentality and gives diners the option to sample several dishes without having to barter with adjacent tables.
If ever there was a dash of awkwardness in visiting an adult entertainment store, Hustler Hollywood has all but erased it. Theresa Flynt—daughter to Larry Flynt, creator of the Hustler empire—came up with the concept in the late 1990s. She envisioned a place that not only sold adult-themed products, but celebrated them. So in 1998, she established the first location on historic Sunset Blvd. Since then, Hustler Hollywood has expanded across the country, opening both urban and interstate locations that are just as bright, airy, and relaxed as the first. The chain has certainly turned heads throughout the adult entertainment industry, as well as in pop culture. Hustler Hollywood has twice won the Retail Store Chain of the Year from XBIZ, and has even appeared in such popular television series as Entourage and Sex and the City.
