When he returned from Vietnam as a US Army Ranger in 1969, Doctor of Chiropractic Watson brought back a souvenir that would change his life: a severely injured back. Disillusioned with the impersonal approach of his medical team, he refused surgery, even though his pain persisted. Finally, a friend recommended chiropractic care, which not only relieved Dr. Watson's discomfort but also inspired him to become a chiropractor himself. His commitment to the surgery-free, holistic discipline was redoubled years later, when his 12-year-old daughter was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis. Dr. Watson devoted his days and nights to scoliosis research, and his office became a certified scoliosis treatment center.
Today, Dr. Watson alchemizes his own health successes into a chiropractic practice that helps others lead lives free of pain and anvil-stuffed backpacks. Aside from treating aches with rehabilitation and chiropractic machines, he renders sleeker figures with nutrition counseling and Zerona treatments.
Before teaming up in 1953, Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins were seasoned business owners with their own ice-cream shops. The words “unusual varieties” shone high above each shop, signaling their respective owners’ passion for anything but an ordinary dessert experience. When the two got together, it was natural that they’d adopt the theme of “31 flavors,” one for each day of the month. Since then, Baskin Robbins has introduced more than 1,000 flavors and opened shops with more than 5,800 franchise owners worldwide. Even their little pink tasting spoon has become a staple as a way to make flavor browsing an event by allowing guests to try specialties without paying cash or chicken-based trade for the privilege.
