Despite having more than 10 years of experience and 1,200 photographed locations under their shared belt, Alex Studio's ten photography teams continue framing subjects from early in the morning to late at night. They capture lasting images of families, children, and engaged couples at on-location shoots around Puget Sound or sessions held at the studio. Their wedding work often takes them worldwide, with pending RSVPs including ceremonies in Hong Kong and Japan. Retouched nuptial shots can be assembled into a custom album made entirely in-house, and clients can also collect their favorite images as retouched digital files stored on DVDs or a set of 50 Commodore 64s.
Even in its 60th year of business, Dick’s Drive-In is still doing things the old-fashioned way, serving all-natural beef patties, hand-cut fries, hand-dipped milkshakes, and root-beer floats.

The preparation of Yeti Yogurt Frozen Creations' frozen yogurts never changes: every flavor is made in a kosher facility without high-fructose corn syrup. But each Yeti Yogurt location mixes it up by changing their menu daily to feature a selection of 16 to 24 flavors that range from cupcake batter and orchard cherry to abominable white mocha spiked with BigFoot Java. Along with gluten- and allergen-free yogurts, Yeti Yogurt's self-serve machines stock non-dairy sorbets free of sodium and cholesterol. Customers can then choose from more than 60 toppings to customize their treats with fruit, cereal, and BigFoot Java espresso beans.
