Jackie and Alan Carberry started Warm Glow Candle Company in their basement back in 1994, experimenting for months with different ingredients and techniques before finally perfecting a fragrant, clean-burning, long-lasting candle with a signature lumpy surface. Today, the Carberrys and their staff use that same recipe as they make more than 15,000 candles by hand each day in their 80,000-square-foot studio, accompanied by pet cats, dogs, and a tropical bird who sometimes answers the phone. Patrons can visit the space to peruse candles in more than 75 scents, including brandied pear and sun-kissed sage, or to procure other highly fragrant items from their line to infuse your home.
Lamps, sconces, and chandeliers cast a warm glow over cozy furnishings inside Lighting EFX's two showrooms, which the owners designed to "enhance the visual experience" of their clients. Their knowledgeable sales team greets customers and helps them navigate through indoor and outdoor lighting arrangements, both flocked by home accent pieces and migratory pink-flamingo statuettes. From among their merchandise, ceiling lights illuminate domiciles from overhead, and an array of stained-glass or polished-chrome accent lamps add both style and brightness to rooms. Old-fashioned outdoor gas lamps, all boasting an oil-rubbed bronze finish, cling to walls or stand atop posts, as a swarm of exterior hanging lights dot the night air.
Community Retail Partnership (CRP) was created in the midst of a tough economy as a way to help individuals, community organizations, and small businesses save money. The company partners with major corporations such as Office Depot, offering everyday people discounts on essential supplies and services.
Lifetime CRP memberships with Office Depot include custom invoicing and reporting for small-business convenience, as well as perks such as free next-business-day delivery of in-stock items on orders of $50 or more. Members also receive 40% off Office Depot finishing services such as binding, stapling, and sealing with family-crest-emblazoned wax. The discount card applies not only to select office supplies, but also to specific paper and printer ink, coffee, and break-room items.
Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa founder Ray Schneider understands why his clients would want to pamper their pups with massage and reiki sessions or warm-water swims. As he told Dan Monk of the Business Courier, "It’s a relationship that’s very hard to explain. When you have a dog, you can understand it.” The Blue Ash resident and entrepreneur created the sprawling, 25,000-square-foot pet hotel—and its second location in Boston—because he realizes the lengths to which people will go to care for their furry friends.
Swathed in upscale atmosphere, the spa is outfitted with all the comforts of home and more; after touring the facilities, Jeff Elkus of David's Voice said, "I wish the last resort I visited had half the amenities of Red Dog." Dogs can stay in private, themed boarding suites with flat-screen TVs and owner-monitored webcams. They exercise and socialize in climate- and airflow-controlled play areas, romp in a three-acre dog park, and don buoyancy vests to soothe achy joints in the heated aquatic center. The hotel also offers multilevel lodging for cats, as well as canine grooming and training services.
Schneider hired and trained a staff for around-the-clock supervision and care. Dogs who are aging, have health issues, or secretly write reviews for Frommer's get special attention in a room with a fireplace and stretch lounges.
