In 1964, the family behind West Huntsville and Nukleen Cleaners was delivering milk to make ends meeting, and decided to make a change. They opened a dry-cleaning business, and have been rejuvenating clothes and linens ever since.
Since opening their first location in 1996, Robeks Fruit Smoothie and Healthy Eats sends their customers well on their way to consuming their recommended daily intake for fruits vegetables, all through a portable smoothie. Customers can step up to the counter and order from a menu of berry, tropical, and “power” smoothies, the latter of which are named for extra boosts of vitamins A and C, fiber, and protein infused in the drink. Nearly a dozen different supplements lend their revitalizing nutrients to the menu, helping create power smoothies like the metabolism-boosting Venice Burner and the heart-healthy Cardio Cooler. Robeks also offers wraps, salads, and gourmet stuffed pretzels, and oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip “power” cookies. Each Robeks location makes a concerted effort to support the neighborhood it resides in, through local organizations, such as Save the Children.

Since the early 1970s, the McPherson family has cleansed and protected their clients' wardrobes at locations in Lebanon and Nashville. At each full-service facility, cleaners help garments outlast fleeting trends with dry cleaning, spot removal, alterations, and smoke restoration. They also revitalize shoes, jackets, belts, and wearable sofas with specialized leather-cleansing treatments. In addition, shirt laundry and bundle service is available for garments that have taken swimming lessons. The McPherson team washes and folds each item and offers delivery service within five miles of their Lebanon and Gallatin Pike locations to keep pants from getting lost while walking home on their own.
The polishing professionals at Prestige Cleaners will smooth the scuffs and scratches out of your foot coverings with an intense round of buffing. This Groupon is good for four separate shine sessions, so you can clean four different pairs of shoes or bring in your favorite pair of Neolithic sandals four consecutive times in a vain attempt to restore the mastodon leather's original characteristics. Depending on the shoes, Prestige Cleaners will either use a machine for precise buffing, or do the job by hand—an old-timey but tried-and-true approach. Voted the best cleaners in Knoxville by Metro Pulse readers, Prestige Cleaners can be trusted with everything from muddy work boots to elegant wingtips in need of some extra gloss.
