The rug-scrubbers at Kentucky's Finest Carpet Care use an oscillating-pad system to cleanse fibers with minimal moisture, rejecting harsh chemical systems or steam methods that leave dirt trapped within sopping carpets. A nontoxic, biodegradable cleaner preps indoor lawns for cleaning before cotton pads set to work evicting grime. Carpets dry in about an hour, allowing homeowners to resume making shag-angels in dining spaces. Kentucky's Finest Carpet Care manufactures the equipment they use worldwide, empowering other businesses to eschew ineffective methods in favor of oscillating carpet scrub-downs.
For the team at Wildcat Mattress, getting a good night's sleep is serious business. That's why they don't employ pushy sales tactics to coerce customers into buying just any mattress. Instead, they educate guests, answering questions in person and providing research tools on their website.
In addition to guiding guests toward a good night's sleep, the team also works to support the local economy. They source the coils and foams that go into their inventory directly from Kentucky-based manufacturers.

Belle Vie MedSpa's staff includes a nurse practitioner, registered nurses, and a nutritional expert, who all work alongside a handful of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists to pamper clients with FDA-approved spa treatments. The highly trained team harnesses tools ranging from Botox injections to hair-razing lasers and may recommend products by Obagi and SkinCeuticals for at-home maintenance.
Specialties include vibradermabrasion, which uses stainless-steel paddles instead of the potentially irritating particles used in traditional microdermabrasion treatments. As they smooth skin, the textured paddles also send a vibrating sensation through the body that many clients find relaxing and many Beach Boys find inspirational. When not making the world beautiful one face at a time, the team at Belle Vie MedSpa puts the focus on building a better community, sponsoring a number of charities, including God's Pantry Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Nest Center for Women, Children & Families.
