  • Swan Cleaners
    Eleanor and Andre Gelpi opened the first Swan Cleaners in 1937. It was a neighborhood store then, and that hasn't changed?only today, instead of just one family owned and operated location, there are numerous Swan Cleaners sprinkled around the greater Columbus area. Most of those offer same day dry cleaning and next day shirt laundering, and many even feature a drive-thru to help busy professionals and marathon runners get on with their days. Inside each Swan Cleaners location, staff members utilize up-to-date dry-cleaning and pressing equipment to complete jobs thoroughly and efficiently. In fact, all of the company's staff members learn the craft and science behind fabric care through specialized training courses when they're hired. Beyond its own business practices, Swan Cleaners has also always been prudent about its impact on the community, which is why it still upholds its tradition of cleaning American flags for free as well as holding a title of certified environmental dry cleaner.

  • American Apparel
    The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear. But what many don't know about the brand?despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase?is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment. Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.

  • Middle West Spirits
    Brady Konya and Ryan Lang aren't from Ohio, but they loved the area for its business-friendly community and rich natural resources, and decided Columbus was where they had to build their distillery. The duo's passion for the Midwest colors everything about Middle West Spirits, from the name down to the Ohio-grown soft red winter wheat in their whiskey and award-winning vodka, which they also infuse with honey and vanilla beans or stone fruit. Inside the distillery, which sprawls over 10,000 square feet of open air, Brady and Ryan craft these artisan OYO spirits—named after the original word for the Ohio River Valley, pronounced o-y-o—in 600-liter pot-and-column stills. Hand-built onsite by German craftsmen using copper, stainless steel, and bits of Saturn's rings, these stills earned Middle West Spirits a place on Popular Mechanics' 5 of the World's Most-High-Tech Distilleries list.

  • Cool Costume
    Costume Holiday House's inventory of wigs, makeup, suits, and party supplies enables costume changes ranging from spooky to comical.

In addition to wearable Halloween goods, the shop also sells fog machines and animated props that set the stage for monster mashes and haunted houses. Costume Holiday House accommodates dress-up even in the Halloween off-season, with theater costume rentals for schools and community plays, or Second Skin colored bodysuits for showing team spirit at a baseball game or camouflaging into the green-screen background at local commercial shoots.

  • Columbus Clippers
    An International League mainstay, the Columbus Clippers have prepped future stars for the big leagues since 1977. The team has claimed nine league championships over the years, most recently in 2011. The Clippers have served as the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians since 2009, helping players hone the skills that they need to succeed in the majors and impress friends during the pi?ata portion of birthday parties. Up to 10,100 Clippers fans pack into Huntington Park, which still gleams with a new-stadium sparkle after sprouting up in 2009. During that inaugural season, the facility was named Ballpark of the Year by multiple sources, including BaseballParks.com and Digitalballparks.com, whose writers referred to the stadium's design as "the most exciting we've seen in two decades."

  • Kingdom of Bounce
    For Kingdom of Bounce owners and lifelong bounce enthusiasts Sara and Jason O., the best part about coming to work is seeing the faces of each awestruck child the moment they first catch sight of the giant floor-to-ceiling inflatables. Bounceable obstacle courses, slides, and castles reign supreme inside their air-conditioned facility, where youngsters are encouraged to run, jump, and ricochet off the walls. Carefully supervised by Sara and Jason's capable staff, sock-clad wee ones defy gravity during all-access open-bounce sessions, parties for up to 25 guests, and Pizza-and-a-Bounce events that fuel leaps with slices of pizza while parents and errant inflatable knights stay equally entertained via complimentary WiFi.
