In October 2005, Doug Stritzel tested his 16 years of restaurant experience by opening Pickleman's, a sandwich shop focused on fresh ingredients and hot subs. Judging by the eatery's success—the initial shop spawned 11 additional locations across the Midwest—Stritzel's experiment worked. Each day, the ovens churn out a lineup of hot subs and pizzas topped with steaming ingredients. Toasted sandwiches meld zesty flavors, such as salami, capicola, and giardiniera peppers, in a torpedo-shaped package that spins in an edible spiral when thrown. Chefs also man the ovens to craft thin-crust pizzas bedecked with chicken, blue cheese, and buffalo sauce, but spare the menu's soups and chopped salads from the flames.

If the name Missouri Mobile Cleaning Services sounds vague, it’s by design. The company’s versatile technicians travel promptly to locations throughout the Springfield area to tackle cleaning jobs on houses, decks, patios, and whatever else they come across. Whether they’re scrubbing windows; using water beading technology; hand washing to remove road tar, grime, and bugs; power washing back porches; or scooping leaves from gutters, the cleaners rely on years of experience and their own high-grade cleaning supplies to get the job done. They also spruce up cars with interior and exterior details that remove scuffs and buff out scratches incurred during the neighborhood’s weekly demolition derby. Customers also choose from five difference fragrances to match their car-smell preference.
