Ultimate Car Wash keeps automobiles sparkling with an automated system that gives drivers the option of either soft-brush cleansing or a touch-free wash. Pre-soak treatments loosen grime, and streams of water rinse it away. Infusions of hot wax or triple-shine conditioner leave surfaces shimmering as though they'd just rolled out of a showroom or beneath a giant laminator. As an added benefit, the car wash stays open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Stroll through an Oldsmar farmers market early in the morning and you might run into Andrew Koumi rifling through baskets of tomatoes in search of the ripest ones. The mastermind behind Green Market Cafe, Andrew was still in college when he hatched the plan to open an eatery that served healthy takes on sandwiches and soups. When discussing the inspiration behind the restaurant with reporters from the Tampa Bay Times, Andrew explained, "I wanted to create a place where I'd like to go and eat everyday."
Arms laden with bags of produce, Andrew returns to his café, where his chefs fold the fresh vegetables into crisp salads and toasty grilled flatbreads. Because everything is made to order, chefs are able to accommodate special requests, adding extra tomatoes or picking out any raisins that look too much like a California Raisin. Diners chitchat over cups of organic tea inside the colorful dining room, an open space tinted with greens, purples, and pinks to please the eye. The building is also home to Kiwi Frozen Yogurt, Green Market Cafe's sister shop, which serves wholesome yogurt with candy and fruit toppings.
Eliminating the time wasted in line waiting for a car wash, ProntoWash Eco AutoSpa resuscitates sullied vehicles while they're parked in designated lots, freeing the drivers up to get other things done. ProntoWash's consideration for the customer's time is mirrored by its commitment to the environment–cleaners wash vehicles with less than a pint of water on average, using a Washing Kart which creates a low-pressure spray made from water and no-foam detergent.
At @Café, cappuccinos, café cubanos, and other classic, steamy sips made with Italian-imported Lavazza beans accompany European-style sandwiches and decadently topped dessert vaffles. Nosh tosts or croissants loaded with sweet or salty stuffing—Nutella or peanut butter fill sweet sandwiches, and ham, cheese, and salami can be mixed, matched, or monster mashed inside salty bites. A euro-style dessert vaffle, which differs from a regular waffle only by a single chromosome, comes crowned with a single topping. Pairs linger to surf freely flowing WiFi in @Café's spacious interior, lit by bright orange accent walls in the daytime and a blue neon glow during after-dark hours.
With soaps, waxes, clay bars, and shampoos in tow, S.O.S. Mobile Detailing’s technicians make house calls to cleanse dirty vehicles.
