Rick Hallor knows there's only one good way to hang a sweater. Keeping his customers' clothes from stretching out may seem like a small nicety, but looking out for people has been the central aim in every professional endeavor he's ever undertaken, whether it was personal training in Illinois or firefighting in Colorado. After relocating to San Diego to escape the frigid Colorado winters and boredom that stems from living in an almost-square state, he decided to put his helpful spirit to use in the dry-cleaning arena. He purchased Speedy Cleaners in 2011, and now he and his wife Calley work to extend the life of their clients' clothing within their homey and welcoming shop.

The family-operated dry-cleaning business not only cleans people's day-to-day garments, but also restores family heirlooms such as wedding dresses. Garment repairs can also be done onsite, as Rick's staff includes both a professional seamstress and a cobbler.

With more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other wholesome ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.

Although Jamba Juice is serious about using wholesome ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate. In addition to their extensive juice menu, their commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its steel-cut slow-cooked oatmeal. Customers can also kick-start their days with six varieties of Energy Bowls—nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soy milk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.

In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative fights childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

Because their art has a small and edible canvas, sushi chefs must specialize in precision. They pick tiny yet often intense ingredients, packaging them neatly together for the best visual and flavorful presentation. At Tabu Sushi Bar & Grill, the challenge of their task is doubled—they wield spicy add-ons whose heat must balance the crispness of the seafood. The spicy lobster roll, for example, tops its mix of lobster, cucumber, and avocado with a drizzle of Sriracha sauce. There's also the sushi burrito, one of several fusion appetizers that wraps shrimp tempura and crab in soy paper, primed for dipping in house salsa.

Stuffed jalapeños, sushi tostadas, and rolls with habanero sauce bespeak the restaurant's fascination with the southwest. Still, there are classic Japanese dishes to be had. Entrees of chicken katsu and miso-glazed Chilean sea bass make for filling dinners, whereas bento box and teriyaki bowl lunch specials satisfy afternoon cravings. Hand rolls package eel and salmon skin inside seaweed shaped like a cone hat, which the staff imports directly from mermaid parties.
