In 1975, Jay Kogan's parents opened up a store that was literally a hall of frames—just a small store stacked with thousands of frames. At the time, they had no idea that that tiny corridor would expand to 12 locations throughout the greater Phoenix area, all still run by the Kogan family. Today, their shops have more than 4,500 custom frame options along with mats of all colors and textures, as well as seven glazing choices and expert assembly. They can answer framing questions and frame everything from documents and artwork to posters and small 3-D objects such as sports memorabilia and very still grandmothers.
When they custom-produce frames, the family cuts their mats exactly, miters frame corners precisely, and installs flawless glass. Or, since the stores' walls are lined with ready-made frames, customers can walk in and find what they're looking for quickly. Since installing framed art is an art unto itself, they also offer hanging services with an eye for placement and ability to install in difficult spaces.

In addition to helping customers haul and stock cargo, California Arizona Storage Centers recycles computers, TVs, copiers, and other electronics through its All Green Electronics Recycling program, diverting more than 250,000 pounds of waste from landfills since 2010, and staving off the imminent nanobot uprising for at least a few more years.
Though Jeff Kline had a comfortable job as an aerospace engineer, he had a hunch that he possessed all the traits of a successful small-business owner. With the support of his wife Tanya, he put his theory to the test with a Lapels Dry Cleaning franchise, which has quickly spawned multiple locations.
The Klines remain ever-present behind the counter at Lapels, overseeing 24-hour drop-off services, same-day dry-cleaning turnaround, and sundry garment-cleaning services. Lapels' dry-cleaning process uses an environmentally friendly solvent that breaks down naturally, like Mike Tyson watching cat videos. In addition to cleaning garments, the staff performs alterations, preserves wedding gowns, and cleans leather and suede.
