Since 1977, Factory Mattress Sales has helped patrons create comfortable sleeping environments within their homes. At locations throughout Austin and San Antonio, they stock mattresses crafted by trusted brands ranging from Sealy to Simmons to Tempur-Pedic. Shoppers can peruse beds with features including Beautyrest pocketed coils, temperature-regulated surfaces, or memory foam that records imprints of dreams, and they can also find items such as bed frames and pillows.
Selection isn't the only reason to visit Factory Mattress Sales. A 111% price guarantee undercuts competitors' pricing, and a 366-night comfort guarantee allows patrons to test out beds for more than a full year. Extensive background checks ensure that the delivery drivers who chauffeur beds to homes are careful and courteous.
Former stay-at-home moms, the managers at Ampro Cleaning Services know just how easily everyday life can push a pile of dirty dishes to the bottom of a to-do list. Harnessing this empathy, they dispatch uniformed, trained, and insured cleaning techs—all of whom have undergone a background check—to homes and businesses to give their clients one less thing to worry about.
Whereas some companies simply use hot water to clean carpet, Chem-X's equipment blows past water's boiling point and cleans with steam that's been heated up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. By cleaning with steam, the trained techs can penetrate deep into carpets to remove even the most tenacious dirt and stains without having to worry about over-wetting walkways or accidentally installing an indoor pool. And when these grime-fighters aren't freeing carpeting from the shackles of dirt and grime, they can be found cleaning upholstery, tile and grout, or area rugs.
Seasons change, and Jennifer Anderson changes with them; she offers special holiday packages that feature peppermint (for the winter holidays), rose sugar scrubs (for Valentine’s Day), and pumpkin facials during the fall. Of course, Jennifer has a special package for spring, too—a Spring Bling special with a lavender, lilac, or rose essential-oil aromatherapy massage, plus a 30-minute hand scrub and a 30-minute earth foot treatment.
Jennifer’s passion for massage therapy spans the entire year. The licensed therapist distills that passion into each massage she renders. After listening closely to clients as they convey their particular ailments or pinpoint areas of soreness, Jennifer engages muscles in the appropriate amount of stretching. She then can perform a number of modalities, from Swedish and deep-tissue to more intricate therapies such as hot stone and prenatal.
What makes your business stand out?
(Parentheses) Photography caters to women. As women ourselves, we know what makes a woman feel beautiful and we strive to make you look your absolute best! We not only offer professional hair and makeup, but we also offer a styling service, where we take the style you are trying to achieve and your sizes and create a look unique to you for a one-of-a-kind shoot.
What inspired you to start this business?
My love of photography, fashion, and people [created] (Parentheses) Photography. My belief in helping every woman see the beauty in themselves inspired me to shoot women.
What is your most popular offering?
My clients usually purchase a canvas of their most favorite image from the shoot to display somewhere in their home, and they usually order a photo book of the rest to take on-the-go to share with friends [and] family.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
I've had many people who have traveled from afar just to come and shoot with me. I've even had someone fly from California and someone else drive all the way from Georgia. I think someone who sees the value in what you provide and is willing to sacrifice that amount of time and energy just to be in front of your lens and have that experience with you, is just hands down amazing.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is the in-person viewing [and] ordering sessions. I get to have my client in front of me while they view the images we created together for the first time. Some women are shocked because I have brought out a side of them that they have never seen before. Others have cried and have told me that they have never thought of themselves as something so beautiful. And I've had others that didn't even want to leave their viewing session because they wanted to keep looking at themselves. I LOVE that I help people see themselves in a whole new way. It is definitely an ego booster!
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The majority of my shoots are with women who have never ever done this type of thing before. Most of them are mothers, businesswomen, or housewives who are always taking care of the people around them and worrying about themselves last. So, when they come to us, we make sure to take very good care of them!
