The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car: it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration and electrical system maintenance, among others. Jiffy Lube's quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Born out of a casual conversation in Gasoline Alley, Indy Racing Experience whips patrons around Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 2.5-mile oval track inside specially built racecars. By stretching out the traditional Indy racecar to include a second seat, founders Scott Jasek, Joe Kennedy, and Jeff Sinden devised a way to let professional drivers take the wheel and lead the uninitiated onto the historic raceway, creating an innovative attraction that has handed out more than 12,000 rides. Indy Racing Experience offers riding and driving experiences as well as the opportunity to pilot your own pit crew. The multipurpose speed mavens can also rent full-size IndyCar simulators, street-legal racers, and pace cars for slowing down the frantic rat race of rush hour.

Since 1949, the floral experts at Andrews Florists and Grande Flower Shop, Inc. have pruned and posed fresh blossoms into festive arrangements. Customers can enliven hallways with the dark leaves and red petals of a traditional poinsettia, replacing previous decorations of Thanksgiving cornucopias or Halloween spider nets tangled with mummified candy bars. The 6-inch plant comes tucked inside wrapped foil and tied with a bow, which can double as a holiday decoration or finger skirt.
