Most high school kids have only a glimmer of an idea of what they want to do when they grow up. But for three kids from the suburbs of LA, destiny came calling long before graduation day. The trio first came together back in 2001 when they would work on one another's cars every Friday; far from going unnoticed, their super-shiny cars soon won them a steady stream of other clients, and before they knew it, they had a tidy little business while their friends were stuck delivering pizzas.
Today, at JLH Detail, they work hard to give each and every car they come across a just-purchased shine. Wash and detail services can be scheduled at regular intervals, and the crew will bring its mobile unit straight to the customer's home or workplace, saving them time that could be spent on more important things, like teaching dogs to read.
During arguably the most vibrant and crucial period of brain development, the instructors at Growing Brilliant supply a catalyzing environment for optimal physical, intellectual, and social growth. Designed for children ranging from six months to six years, the center's programs help prepare youngsters for kindergarten, stimulate the brains of babies with diverse sensory experiences, or teach tots to share, socialize, and sip their juice boxes with their pinkies up. Varied focus areas give little ones of any age a well-rounded experience, cultivating creativity, encouraging movement and fitness, and even teaching foreign languages.
For services ranging from driveway sealing to installing golf-course paths, the paving experts at Asphalt Consultants look at the big picture. From inception to design to scheduling, they oversee each project through to its conclusion, keeping lines of communication open with clients during every step of the process.
Onsite inspections during each phase ensure cracks remain filled and free of amateur spelunkers, and careful screenings of contractors present qualified teams for customers' approval. Though Asphalt Consultants specializes in asphalt resurfacing and seal coating, it also crafts and restores surfaces such as sports courts, shopping centers, and bike lanes.
Within the warm glow of the blossoming flower lamps that hang above DND Hair Studio’s sleek, peach-hued space, esthetician Kristal Mussetter draws from an arsenal of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing products to summon cleaner, younger-looking skin during European facials.

Since 2003, Keith Nash, owner of The Pizza Place, and his wife Shab have operated their family-owned restaurant designed for pizza aficionados. Opening The Pizza Place location in Rocklin in 2007, The Nash's oversee cooks who craft fresh pizza dough daily, homemade pasta sauces, and hulking meatball sandwiches. In the oven, the fresh dough rises and crisps beneath fistfuls of artichoke hearts, salami, linguiça, anchovies, basil, and garlic. A full Italian menu includes traditional stunners, such as from-scratch lasagna, bubbly warm tomato sauces, and stacked Philly cheese steaks. An accompanying dessert menu features fluffy tiramisu to decadent chocolate mousse cake. In the dining room, calzones spill steam that rises up towards framed jerseys, signed photos of athletes, and 5 flat screen TVs. An ample salad bar offers tasty greens for patrons in search of lighter bites. Outside the eatery, patrons lounge on a terrace, sipping on wine or one of the 10 beers on tap while enjoying the breeze. The Pizza Place's traditional culinary treasures earned them the title of "Best Pizza Place 2009" in The Placer Herald.
