Domino's has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino's dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients, or choose nonpizza fare such as buffalo wings, pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks. Famished diners too starved to choose their own pizza toppings can select from Domino's American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas.

If today’s golfers were to travel back in time to the founding of Tippecanoe Country Club in 1920, they likely wouldn’t recognize it. For one, it had just nine holes; it wouldn’t be expanded until renowned golf-course designer Pete Dye came along 41 years later. Something even bigger was missing, too: Lake Shafer. The course predates the erection of the dam up the Tippecanoe River that created the lake, which today forms the course’s western border. As present-day club wielders make their rounds, they traverse a triangular parcel of land that juts out into the manmade lake, requiring them to conquer nerves on water-bordering fairways or else send their golf balls to sleep with manmade fish.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course
  • Total length of 6,784 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.4 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 124 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

So established is Circle K Midwest that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.

After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.

Kathleen's cookies are not just her own—they're the result of the hard work and traditions carried on by five generations. Inspired by her grandmother, who made traditional Belgium cookies only once a year that were cherished by the whole family, Kathleen worked with fragmented recipes to develop her own version of the crispy treats. After a year of hard work, she started Kathleen's Kookies with her signature Malvinas, named after her grandmother. Aiming to keep the family's traditions alive, she crafts the cherished cookies year-round to share with others, packaged inside pretty baskets, boxes, and foreclosed doll houses.

Even World War II couldn't stop Mark Honeywell. It just slowed him down a little. After establishing himself in the business world by founding a Fortune 500 company, Honeywell committed to the creation of the Honeywell Memorial Community Center, dedicated to his late wife Olive and his parents. Construction began a year later, but the material and labor demands of the war did take a toll, stretching the process out over a decade. When the center was finally completed in 1952, it was obvious that community was at its heart: a roller rink and gymnasium gave residents a chance to bust out their skates and sneakers, and the lounge afforded grown-ups a place to play cards or talk about decoration schemes for their new nuclear-fallout shelters. More recent years have seen the addition of a 1,500 seat theater, a restaurant, and an art gallery.

The staff at Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt rejects the oft-touted claim that Americans don?t care about nutrition. The problem, they say, has more to do with selection than anything else; most low-calorie sweets don?t hold a candle to a fudge brownie or a warm slice of apple pie. They kept this in mind when crafting their frozen-yogurt recipes, working tireless to develop a healthy?and equally delicious?alternative to the dessert status quo by turning to decadent confections and just-picked fruits for inspiration.

Their experiments thus far have yielded more than 60 frozen yogurt flavors, which take turns pumping through the self-serve machines that line their colorful shop?s wall. Before taking a seat in a bright orange chair, guests fill their dishes with cool, low-fat swirls of chocolate cheesecake, strawberry banana, and a classic tart that bites as pleasantly as a teething kitten. Juicy pears, crunchy granola, and gooey chocolate sauce headline a smorgasbord of at least 30 toppings ready to scooped or poured into cups before their final weigh-in.
