Quality Self Storage specializes in U-Haul truck rental and self storage, but owner Mark Shirey strives to meet all of his customers’ do-it-yourself-moving needs with a broad range of products and services, such as propane-tank refilling and hitch installation. At the Roswell and Cumming facilities, climate-controlled storage units line five-foot-wide aisles and feature extra-wide doors for easy loading and unloading of large items, such as bed frames or mastodon fossils. A 24-hour surveillance system guards stored items, and digital-key-code access bars unauthorized entry. Since its founding in 1994, Quality has become one of the largest U-Haul authorized dealers in the country.
Whether by suds, professional polish, leather conditioners, or tinted window film, the technicians at Miami Auto Spa keep cars looking sharp enough to make a stop sign blush. All washes are performed by hand. Details, with the help of Wolfgang sealants, Klasse polishes, and shampoos, reach every crevice of the car and transform it into a shiny, new-looking ride. Cars don’t need to be dirty to benefit here, though. Window tinting gives the car a sleek look and the driver protection and privacy, and rim repairs further add to the car’s overall aesthetic.

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.
