BAKERY Rheinlander Bakery

5721 Olde Wadsworth Blvd, Arvada rheinlanderbakery.com 303-467-1810

We exist for the love of baking, to treat and serve our community. Our team is very knowledgeable about our baked goods, including what’s in our goodies if you have allergy concerns. You’re just in for a treat when you visit us. — ­ Maro Dimmer

WHAT THEY DO “Come in for a treat and experience an old-fashioned real bakery.” That’s Rheinlander Bakery co-owner Maro Dimmer’s invitation to the community to enjoy the variety, atmosphere, and open production area of her store in Arvada. Rheinlander Bakery is known for authentic German and European pastries, including their famous apple strudel and seven-layer tortes. “We make everything from scratch,” says Dimmer, who owns the bakery with her husband Ed. “Nothing comes from a mix, not our dough, fillings, apples, cherries, Bavarian crème - nothing.” Popular bakery items include cream horns and eclairs, mini versions of the tortes, and baklava, which comes from Maro’s Greek heritage. The bakery is also one of the pioneers in gluten-free pastries, along with offering sugar-free and dairy-free choices. They also offer vegan options. The bakery’s goal is to serve the entire family.

Rheinlander Bakery General Manager Hannah Jackson works on cookies in the store’s open production area. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Ed Dimmer’s parents, Jacob and Katharina, were German immigrants who purchased the former Arvada Bakery and turned it into Rheinlander Bakery. For more than 54 years, the family has provided authentic European baked goods, including fresh-fromthe-oven cakes, strudels and coffeecakes. Rheinlander Bakery is famous for apple and poppy seed strudels, authentic potica, streuselkuchens and bienenstich. By Andrea Doray

MASSAGE THERAPIST Table of Youth, LLC 4880 Estes St, Arvada tableofyouth.com 774-263-1047

My goal is to create the best massage experience your body has ever had, and to get you back to 100 percent. I want to make Table of Youth your last massage and bodywork destination. — Jason Oliveira

WHAT THEY DO Jason Oliveira, owner of Table of Youth, specializes in making people healthier, helping with soft tissue injuries, aches and pains, impingement, and movement issues. “After working in high-end spas in California, I realized that I have a real knack for dealing with pain, and I learned techniques to help people for results that last a lot longer,” says Olivera. At Table of Youth, Oliveira also offers deep tissue massage and myofascial release, which he describes as loosening of a “fishnet” that surrounds everything in the body. “If you’re sitting at a computer all day, or have an injury,” he says, “this ‘fishnet’ can get all bound up. The only way to release it is with the kind of slow, sustained pressure I provide.” Oliveira, a licensed massage therapist, believes that massage is essential when it comes to living a more comfortable, pain free and active lifestyle.

Jason Oliveira, owner of Table of Youth, graduated from massage school with 750 hours of instruction and practice, and is a member of American Massage Therapy Association. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Oliveira has been practicing massage professionally since 2010. In 2014, he joined with Team USA as massage therapist for the Duathlon World Championships. USA Triathlon invited him to Mexico for the 2016 Triathlon World Cup, and in 2017, he traveled around Colorado as a massage therapist for the Mavic Haute Route, a seven-day cycling event. Oliveira left Los Angeles after “two long years without seasons” and moved to Colorado six years ago, where he opened Table of Youth in Arvada in 2013. By Andrea Doray

4625 Trail Boss Drive, Ste F, Castle Rock restorationchiropractic.us 303-688-2225

We find the root of the problem for full resolution, not just 30 minutes of relief. Our practice is built around families for both pricing and convenience. We are passionate about changing and optimizing not only clients’ health, but also our community’s health for the better. — Jacob Hansen, D.C.

WHAT THEY DO Dr. Jacob Hansen, believes that everyone can heal and operate at 100 percent. “We offer full holistic restorative care with a wide variety of techniques and a home health care plan. We teach people how to take care of themselves, saving them both time and money,” he said. Restoration Chiropractic is known for finding solutions and treating conditions that have not been resolved with other medical care. Hansen’s expertise in neurology helps assess even the rarest of cases for all ages from babies and children to men and women. Hansen and his staff believe that, when properly moving and aligned, our bodies have the innate ability to rejuvenate and restore themselves naturally. “Our job is to facilitate that movement and alignment so your body can achieve its fullest potential,” said Hansen. “We believe it’s a sacred responsibility to help people lead healthy happy lives.”

Dr. Jacob Hansen, of Restoration Chiropractic in Castle Rock, says his passion is helping every person reach their optimum potential, achieve excellence and lead healthy lives. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Dr. Jacob Hansen, a Doctor of Chiropractic, has been a practicing chiropractor for eight years, and says his own life was changed through chiropractic care after a head injury five years ago that almost killed him. He wants to share this potential with everyone from newborns and children to people with head trauma and sports injuries, and families that just want to stay healthy. He previously worked at a veteran’s hospital in Dallas, as well as other practices. Hansen opened Restoration Chiropractic in Castle Rock in 2017. By Andrea Doray

VETERINARIAN Animal Care Center of Castle Pines

562 E Castle Pines Pkwy, Ste C5, Castle Pines animalcarectr.com 303-688-3660

When we do what’s best for the pet, we are also doing what’s best for the practice. The 53 people of Animal Care Center of Castle Pines – doctors, staff, groomers – are really invested in caring for your pets. — Dr. Jonathan James, CEO

WHAT THEY DO “Care is our middle name…and our doctors and staff absolutely live by it.” That’s how Jonathan James, CEO of Animal Care Center of Castle Pines, describes the practice he co-owns with four veterinarians, including doctors Brooke James, Molly Miller, Jonathan Quint and Shawn Wayment. In addition to medical care and diagnostics, vaccinations, surgery, grooming and other services are available to take care of a pet’s health and wellness. Animal Care Center specializes in enhancements such as dentistry, nutrition, rehabilitation and can assist owners with behavioral problems, as well as advanced pain management and anesthesia services. The doctors at Animal Care Center have extensive experience in several special interest areas, including geriatrics, less-invasive surgical and non-surgical options, arthritis, weight management, allergies, and difficult-to-diagnose conditions. Animal Care Center is also one of the few vets open on Saturdays in the area.

HISTORY Dr. Shawn Wayment and Dr. Brooke James started Animal Care Center of Castle Rock in 2003 as a mixed practice for large and small animals. Easily found, Animal Care Center is located in The Meadows across from the outlet mall. When Dr. Jonathan Quint joined the team, they had two locations, which they then consolidated in the Castle Pines location in 2011 to accommodate the growth of the practice. Animal Care Center took on the “Castle Pines” part of their name in 2012 when the city of Castle Pines incorporated. By Andrea Doray

WINE BAR Crush Wine Bar

3911 Ambrosia St, Ste 102, Castle Rock crushwineandfood.com 720-361-2121

We are incredibly lucky to have such a great team and staff. We want to offer the finest service, food and wine, and develop long-lasting relationships – not only with the wineries we represent, but with every person who comes through our door. — Nancie Lewis

WHAT THEY DO Two years ago, Crush Wine Bar co-owner Nancie Lewis knew Castle Rock was ready for a wine-specific bar that would be short on pretention, but long on warm hospitality where people could enjoy and learn about wine. Crush specializes in providing customers the opportunity to try new wines they may never have seen before. With her 15 years as a catering chef, Nancie also knows how to pair great food with complementary wine choices. Plus, as Nancie and her partners and co-owners James Lewis and Dann LaScala note, they are all about relationships: “Sometimes customers are surprised to see owners on the floor every night … we want to talk with each one of our guests,” Nancie said. James Lewis says their relationships with growers and winemakers are important, too. “These are people we know and love,” he says. “We serve good wine that we know comes from good people.”

From left, co-owners and partners James Lewis, Nancie Lewis, and Dann LaScala offer great wines and culinary excellence in a relaxed and approachable atmosphere at Crush Wine Bar in Castle Rock. Photo by Nick Lucey

HISTORY Before founding Crush Wine Bar with Nancie Lewis, James Lewis had been in the wine business for 23 years, traveling extensively for 18 of those years. “It got tedious,” he explains. “Two years ago, I flew in from a trip in time to unpack, mow the lawn, and pack to leave again. So, I asked Nancie, ‘Want to open a wine bar?’ And Crush was born.” James and Nancie turned to longtime friend Dann LaScala, a professional restaurant manager for 30 years, to “help fill in the gaps. We wanted a partner and co-owner we knew we could trust, with the right skill set to help us grow,” says James. By Andrea Doray

CENTENNIAL

DAY SPA Spavia Park Meadows

8283 S Akron St, Centennial spaviadayspa.com/centennial-co 720-642-6616

We are experienced professionals who want the best for our guests. We want you to leave the spa feeling better and healthier and ready to take on whatever life throws at you. — Tasha Farley

WHAT THEY DO Spavia Park Meadows in Centennial offers customers a way to escape the stress of their everyday lives. “There may be chaos outside our doors,” says Lead Guest Advisor Tasha Farley, “but inside, we are a family that helps guests take the time to get away and really be present with themselves.” In addition to massage, Spavia offers detox and anti-aging wraps, facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, sugar scrubs, spray tans, and eyelash extensions. “A massage specialist at this store actually created our signature sports massage for all Spavias,” says Farley. “It’s a unique combination of deep tissue and hot stone massages, as well as a stretching program guests can continue at home.” Spavia specializes in the overall health and well-being of customers, both men and women, and offers a boutique of products, says Farley. “We want to help you turn off the outside world, as well as to thrive outside the spa.”

As Lead Guest Advisor for the Centennial location, Tasha Farley makes sure that Spavia Park Meadows guests have seamless experiences. Photo by Andrea Doray

HISTORY Allison Langenderfer opened the Centennial location of Spavia near the Park Meadows Mall in 2005. The facility serves as the flagship store and the first of a now-nationwide organization. The Spavia mission and vision are to make a positive difference in the world one guest at a time and deliver an exceptional experience. Today, they are doing just that, focused on creating the best experience with the best products and spa treatments. By Andrea Doray

ELBERT COUNTY

COFFEE SHOP Golden Joe’s

796 E Kiowa Ave, Elizabeth Like Golden Joe’s on Facebook 303-284-6603

What I love most about Golden Joe’s is that all of the customers, actually, everyone in Elbert County is really friendly. I love being able to interact with everyone. — Barista Savannah Wassil

WHAT THEY DO Golden Joe Coffee specializes in brightening people’s day through coffee, conversation, food and excellent service. Many customers come to Golden Joe for meetings, or to have a quiet place to get work done. Others come in to get a quick coffee on their way to work. And still, others come in to relax with friends and family. Golden Joe’s serves espresso drinks such as lattes, macchiatos, cappuccinos, americanos, and frappes, as well as brewed coffee, pastries, sodas, lemonade, iced tea, smoothies and Rose’s Creamery ice cream. The Elbert County coffee shop also has homemade sandwiches, quiche, biscuits and gravy, breakfast burritos, breakfast bowls, and cinnamon rolls available to order. The goal at Golden Joe is to provide a friendly, welcoming, and cozy environment for customers to spend their time.

Golden Joe is known for being a gathering place for local residents and groups to enjoy. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Previously owned by Julie Williams, Golden Joe was purchased by Isabel Salmon at the beginning of May. This ownership change has gone smoothly, and with it has come the addition of homemade breakfast burritos and bowls. Golden Joe hopes that the expansion of food options will allow them to cater to more customers, and the ability to continue serving the community. By Julie Taylor

AUTO REPAIR/SERVICE Thompson Automotive

1855 W Union Ave, Ste H, Englewood thompsonimportrepair.com 303-586-1074

We really care about our customers and their cars. We keep our facility nice and clean and try to connect with people and be likeable. — Jaime Thompson

WHAT THEY DO Thompson Automotive provides mechanical work on all domestic and Japanese cars. From engine, brakes and suspensions to transmissions, maintenance, tires and alignments, the company offers everything in automobile service except bodywork. One of co-owner Bob Thompson’s specialties is diagnostics of all the electronics in cars today. In addition, the business focuses on service to its customers. If customers are stranded, someone from Thompson Automotive will go get them. The employees also will stay late, if it’s needed for a customer. The business also offers seasonal specials on their website and introductory offers for new customers. As small business owners, Thompson Automotive is involved with the local community. Co-owner Jaime Thompson has served on the board of directors of the Englewood Chamber of Commerce for five years.

Jaime and Bob Thompson, owners of Thompson Automotive. Courtesy photo

HISTORY The Thompsons, a husband and wife team, met while working at another car shop in Denver. Bob, a master technician, and Jaime, the business manager, thought they could run an auto shop better than the location where they worked. In 2010, they leased space in their current location, and in 2013, they added a second, 4,800-square-foot building. By Pam Peccolo

ASIAN RESTAURANT Maki Sushi and Grill

1301 Washington Ave, #120, Golden makisushigolden.com 303-404-2800

We have our own way of preparing our tasty sushi, tempura, and Thai dishes. Come in to enjoy our wide menu and friendly service… we want you to be comfortable here. — Angie Cain

WHAT THEY DO At Maki Susi, owner Angie Cain specializes in, well, sushi. “We offer some of the freshest fish in sushi in the metro area,” says Cain. “Even our out-of-town customers from Houston and Florida tell us our fish is better than what they have.” The chefs at Maki Sushi have their own particular way of preparing a variety of fresh and tasty choices, as well as non-sushi items such as tempura and Thai dishes. Popular items on the menu include fresh tuna and salmon rolls, including the Spicy Girl roll: Hamachi yellowtail tuna and cucumber, with seared black pepper Ahi tuna and jalapeno on top, plus “our special sauce, very tasty and a little spicy,” says Cain. The daily specials – salmon belly sushi and Hamachi belly sushi – are so sought after that Cain usually runs out of them before dinner hours close. “We just want our customers to say ‘wow’ after tasting our sushi,” says Cain.

HISTORY Angie Cain has been in the restaurant business most of her life, starting as a server and becoming a manager, working with top sushi chefs in the Los Angeles area. Cain and her sister, both originally from Colorado, opened Maki Sushi in Golden in 2015, after Cain left California to return to her home state. “We’re a family-owned business, and we love our location in Golden,” says Cain. We have repeat customers who have come back every week since we opened.” By Andrea Doray

BREWERY New Terrain Brewing Company 16401 Table Mountain Pkwy, Golden newterrainbrewing.com 720-697-7848

Come to New Terrain for the atmosphere and the community, and, of course, our craft beers. We’re family and dog-friendly (in the beer garden) and you can enjoy our great location and amazing views with your neighbors and friends. — ­ Mike Helms

WHAT THEY DO What do custom bicycles, yoga, live music, craft beer, and a hitching post all have in common? They are part of what makes New Terrain Brewing Company unique in the metro area. “Our slogan is ‘Beers For Those That Wander’,” says Mike Helms, New Terrain’s general manager and all-around ambassador of fun. “We like to explore different styles and recipes and provide our customers not only with true-to-style traditional beers, but options in beer they may not have tried before.” As a Colorado-themed establishment, New Terrain’s offerings include the “Rise & Climb” Kölsch-style beer, their “Lost” IPA and “Up & About” stout, and the aptly named “Golden Haze,” a New England-style IPA. “We’re surrounded with views of the mesas, a baseball diamond, off-leash dog park, and biking and horseback trails,” says Helms. “It’s not unusual to see horses hitched to the post out front while the owner comes in to enjoy a pint.”

Mountain bikes rest outside the beer garden at New Terrain Brewing Company on a beautiful summer evening in Golden. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Founders and co-owners Josh Robbins and Kaylee Robbins started the brewery in 2016, taking the plunge into “new terrain.” Both are beer-industry professionals who had previously operated a smaller brewery in downtown Golden, and decided they needed a larger facility for their new venture, which includes a custom mountain bike shop inside run by Kaylee’s brother, a beer garden with live music, and daily activities from a run club to yoga.

9461 S University Blvd, Highlands Ranch highlandsranchcoloradodentist.com 720-644-8186

We make sure our patients are comfortable and listened to. And we get compliments on our caring staff. We love getting to see our patients. In fact, children who came in as 7 and 8 year olds are now making college plans. We like having those family relationships. — Dr. Michelle Haynes

Dr. Amanda McCabe, Dr. Michelle Haynes and Dr. Courtney McKeever of Highlands Ranch Smiles. Courtesy photo

WHAT THEY DO

HISTORY

Highlands Ranch Smiles provides basic, preventative dentistry, including crowns, fillings, root canals and implants. Each doctor has a specialty, so the practice is able to keep most procedures in-house. For patients’ convenience and comfort, Highlands Ranch Smiles offers a children’s play area and a Comfort Menu to select from prior to procedures. For instance, patients can choose to watch movies with noise canceling headphones and wear sunglasses to dim the bright lights used during dental work. Highlands Ranch Smiles works hard to keep a family feel and not lose the individual and personal touch. Throughout the year, it hosts ice cream socials, open houses and Invisalign events.

Dr. Michelle Haynes remembers the confidence she experienced when she got braces at age 13. Then, she dreamed of becoming a dentist. She worked for a dentist through high school and college, and 7 years ago, she took over an existing practice and it became Highlands Ranch Smiles. In 2013, Dr. Courtney McKeever joined the practice and Dr. Amanda McCabe joined in 2016. From the time the practice became Highlands Ranch Smiles, it has quadrupled the number of patients served. In 2014, the practice expanded its space, remodeled and nearly doubled the number of treatment rooms. By Pam Peccolo

12890 W Alameda Pkwy, Lakewood greenmountaincw.com 720-400-0804

I like what makes us special, which is customer service. We strive to provide some of the best. We’re in our early 30s, so we’re different from the old school car wash owners who didn’t do anything. We’re doing all the work ourselves. Our decisions are based on the customer and what the customer would like. — Brett Arnold

Shawn Kronebusch, at left, and Brett Arnold, at right, stand with their families. Courtesy photo

WHAT THEY DO

HISTORY

Green Mountain Car Wash is an automatic car wash with selfservice options. The location features four large, clean, wellmaintained bays, all with new fixtures and brushes, six vacuum stations, including one High Power Turbo Vac with spot remover and a shampoo option. Business partners, Brett Arnold and Shawn Kronebusch, are diligent about making Green Mountain Car Wash customers a priority. Green Mountain Car Wash soon will be installing a “live” traffic camera that will show cars in line at the car wash. By watching, customers can save time by learning when car wash lines are the shortest. The “traffic cam” should go live at the end of July. The owners of Green Mountain Car Wash believe in giving back to the community, so they offer free car washes on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Veterans Day.

According to Brett Arnold, his wife washes her car religiously every week. He had been looking for an investment option, but nothing jumped out at him. He noticed his wife would drive past one car wash and go to Green Mountain, so he wondered why. Also, when he went there he saw an older woman emptying trash and thought she might be an owner. It turns out, yes, she and her husband were ready to put the car wash up for sale. Brett reached out to colleagues and learned that Shawn Kronebusch, a friend of a friend, had wanted to own a car wash, had grown up on a farm and knew a lot about fixing machinery. They decided to become partners and after six months, in July 2016, they became owners of Green Mountain Car Wash. By Pam Peccolo

I’m motivated by a desire to be a positive force in the lives of my patients. I’m keen to share a corny joke, a favorite quote, or discuss personal development topics. I believe that you succeed best by helping others to succeed. — Dr. Wade Housewright Dr. Wade Housewright with his family, a family man proud to serve the community. Courtesy photo

WHAT THEY DO Led by Dr. Wade Housewright, Inspire Orthodontics straightens teeth for children, teenagers and adults. The modern orthodontic treatment provided at Inspire Orthodontics includes virtual, custom design of your smile and bite along with enhancement of overall facial esthetic balance and dental function, all in a fun and relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. Housewright spends time understanding what patients want and uses leading-edge technologies that offer increased speed and comfort and decreased need for extractions, surgery and headgear.

YOGA/PILATES Outlaw Yoga Littleton 2590 W Main St, Littleton outlawyogalittleton.com 303-823-4883

Community is what the whole world needs. I’d rather give and know that it always comes around. ­— Justin Kaliszewski

WHAT THEY DO Technically easy, physically challenging and a lot of fun, is the quick description of Outlaw Yoga Littleton by its founder, Justin Kaliszewski. The business also stresses the value of community by encouraging attendees to relax and make a new friend once they enter the studio. With more than 30 classes offered each week, Outlaw Yoga Littleton begins each lesson with community time, when attendees turn off their phones and get to know one another. The classes range in intensity from Gentle Flow, Beginner 101 and Candlelight Restore to Outlaw 1, Outlaw 2 and Outlaw X. The studio also offers a yoga class for children, a free meditation class, an alllevels class with live music and a run club. Outlaw Yoga Littleton offers a variety of affordable yoga options. New, local residents are invited to attend yoga classes free for one week. Drop-in classes are $15, with a discounted rate of $8 per class for students, seniors and members of the military.

Justin Kaliszewski of Outlaw Yoga in Littleton. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Justin Kaliszewski opened Outlaw Yoga Littleton in 2015. He had been doing yoga all his life, teaching yoga since 2010 and wanted to change the model for yoga studio ownership. As a result, the studio partners with several nonprofits, including The Give Back Yoga Foundation, which makes yoga accessible to those who would not normally go to a class including veterans, people with PTSD, and formally-incarcerated citizens. Outlaw Yoga Littleton shares 1 percent of the studio’s net proceeds with The Give Back Yoga Foundation.

ACUPUNCTURE Whole Health Center

9075 Forsstrom Dr, Lone Tree wholehealthcenters.com 303-470-1995

We help an average of 100 patients per day at Whole Health Center. Many of our patients have tried other types of treatment but are still suffering. Many patients receive acupuncture regularly to prevent illness and stay healthy. Acupuncture is amazing. — Marcy Gardner, office manager

WHAT THEY DO At Whole Health Center, the mission is to help as many people as possible. The center provides acupuncture seven days a week. There are currently seven experienced, caring acupuncturists to help with any condition. Acupuncture can help alleviate a variety of issues ranging from simple pain, stress, insomnia, allergies, headaches, to bigger issues such as migraines, diabetes, infertility, depression, anxiety, menopause, sports injuries, weight issues and sinusitis. As an example, acupuncture relieves pain by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals. Acupuncture acts on the nervous system by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain. It elicits an immune response to help patients heal quicker. Whole Health Center is innetwork with all insurance companies, so claims can be submitted for patients with acupuncture benefits.

Whole Health Center has offices in Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree, offering a variety of acupuncture services. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Paul Murray and Wenying Lin started Whole Health Center in Ken Caryl and Highlands Ranch in 2001. Continuing to grow, they opened a Whole Health Center in Lone Tree in 2009. The Lone Tree location offers acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, functional medicine, psychotherapy, nutrition, colon hydrotherapy, energy therapy and personal yoga. Whole Health Center has 22 practitioners. The center also offers natural supplements and Chinese herbs to keep people healthy. By Julie Taylor

NONPROFIT Senior Hub

9025 Grant St, Ste 150, Thornton seniorhub.org 303-426-4408

The Senior Hub provides invaluable services to our older adults, our hot MOW delivery program nourishes hundreds, our senior solutions program is a ready resource for yard care, home repair, transportation and insurance concerns, and our RSVP program is a tour de force of volunteers that help with community gardens, tutoring, and hosted community events. — Stephanie Knight

WHAT THEY DO The mission of The Senior Hub is to advance the quality of life for older adults through advocacy, community partnerships, and a variety of direct services planned to sustain an independent, healthy aging experience. To accomplish this mission, the Senior Hub focuses on informing and educating older adults about services available and, conversely, the community about the needs of older adults. Senior Hub staff works both on the public and private level to identify, plan and offer solutions to meet the needs of older adults. Senior Hub also serves as a recognized source of expertise and advocacy for older adults in both the community and the region.

Stephanie Knight, director of Senior Hub, stands with one of the many volunteers who works in the Meals on Wheels program. Courtesy photo

HISTORY The Senior Hub, Inc. began operating as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) center for seniors in 1986. The Senior Hub was started with the goal of advancing the quality of life for older adults through advocacy and community programs, including Meals on Wheels, Homecare Services, Adult Day Service, and more. As a nonprofit, the Senior Hub relies on donations from the community each year. By Thelma Grimes

BAR 20 Mile Tap House

12543 N Hwy 83, Parker 20miletaphouse.com 303-841-6782

You know, I love my customers and I have a number of regular guests that come in often and they’re so fun and so kind. I absolutely have the best team in the industry working with me, and I’m very grateful for that. — Jeff Hellner, owner Guests and staff celebrate the lively atmosphere and beers on tap offered at Parker’s popular 20 Mile Tap House. Courtesy photo

WHAT THEY DO 20 Mile Tap House is a Colorado-centered craft beer tap house. Currently serving 18 beers on tap,14 of those are Colorado beers. With a full kitchen, the Tap House is able to serve bar food, but it’s not quite the kind of food you’d expect. Everything is made from scratch and there’s an Asian twist to a few items. With a great covered patio in the back overlooking the mountains, 20 Mile Tap House is also known for the atmosphere. Every Friday and Saturday night besides a good beer and food selection, they also host live music. Other nights, the Tap House hosts other entertainment, including trivia night on Tuesday, bingo on Wednesdays and open mic night on Thursdays.

HISTORY The current owners took over 20 Mile Tap House in 2013, and slowly, but surely made some adjustments to the environment, atmosphere, menu and culture of the bar. They’ve been growing ever since. Before taking over the Tap House, owner Jeff Hellner served as the regional director for a corporate chain restaurant. Hellner started off as a cook and server and grew through the ranks. Hellner said It’s always been a dream to own his own bar or restaurant, noting that now he has the best of both worlds.

BIKE SHOP Treads

10831 S Crossroads Dr, Parker treads.com 303-690-2900

I just love bikes. I love mountain biking, and I love road biking. We have happy people helping happy people. Like kids getting a new bike, and sometimes it’s the first bike for them. Even adults, when you get a brand-new bike it’s just a fun thing. — Gene Hodges

WHAT THEY DO Treads is a bicycle retailer, which includes both sales and repairs. Treads sells bicycles, related products, apparel, accessories, and parts. They also service bikes. Treads does the whole spectrum, starting bikes for little children, and going all the way up to high end bikes for adults and teens. Treads has a great variety, offering most mountain bikes, road bikes and urban bikes. Treads doesn’t pick a niche within the bicycle world, even though the bike business is pretty much a niche. Treads focuses a lot of time on being a friendly place of expertise, which means providing strong customer service. Treads owner Gene Hodges said, “The best thing is that we’re helping people, and they’re happy and excited about it. Most all of our customer interactions are very positive and happy because it’s fun that they’re coming in to do something fun and to get the equipment to do it.”

Treads has become a popular name in the Denver Metro Area, with shops in Aurora and Parker. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Treads owner Gene Hodges got in the business because he was into competitive cycling in high school and college. As a summer job during college, Hodges started working in the bike business, and then after college, he started managing what has now become the Aurora store. In 1990, Hodges bought it from the previous owner, then expanded and grew it into various phases. In 2002, Treads expanded and that included the Parker store. Hodges has been involved in the bike business for 37 years, and owner of Treads for 27 years. By Julie Taylor

MARTIAL ARTS Kim & Cam’s Taekwondo Academy 10490 Dransfeldt Rd, Parker kctkd.com 303-994-3376

I mostly love impacting people’s lives in a positive way, especially in such a wide variety of students, age groups and backgrounds. We just try to create students’ best version of themselves; create a more peaceful and productive society, really. — Cameron Weber

WHAT THEY DO Kim and Cam’s Taekwondo Academy teaches martial arts, selfdefense and life skills to students between the ages of 3 and beyond through adults. The Academy hosts a variety of camps and self-defense seminars, but the main focus is on taekwondo classes. Students participating in taekwondo classes are split up between skill levels and ages, and train until they can take part in team competition. The Parker Academy competes in tournaments nationwide and takes part in mountain training every year. In the annual training event, students hike a fourteener and then do a class on the hill, which is kind of fun. Owners say what’s really exciting is seeing the major improvements in skill at the academy, and what the parents see in kid’s lives, including a rise in confidence, schoolwork improves and home life improves. That’s something really rewarding to see.

Taekwondo classes are offered to students starting at the age 3 through adults. The academy works hard in training and competing in tournaments nationwide. Courtesy photo

HISTORY The history is a cool story. “I’ve been doing tae kwon do for 21 years. When I was 12 years old, I told my original instructor, Grand Master Kim, that I wanted to open my own academy and name it Kim and Cam’s Taekwondo, a combination of both of our names,” said Cameron Weber. “I kept the same name from when I was 12 years old and opened 20 years later. He’s still my close mentor and still trains me.” By Julie Taylor

HEALTH COACH Serving Healthy, LLC

8753 Yates Drive, Ste 225 D, Westminster servinghealthy.com 303-403-9460

To quote Hippocrates: ‘Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.’ A diet is not something you should choose to simply lose weight … a diet is a lifestyle you can adopt for the remainder of your life to become and stay healthy. — Paul Webster

WHAT THEY DO Serving Healthy offers a variety of services that include nutrition education, meal planning, cooking classes, and personal fitness guidance for improving overall health and well-being. “What I do is help people live healthy lifestyles,” says owner Paul Webster. Webster is a certified holistic nutritionist and classically trained chef, as well as a certified personal trainer and former world-class athlete with the experience to help clients reach their health goals. Webster brings his culinary skills to the table, showing clients how to prepare healthy food that tastes great, and, as a trainer, he teaches people how to stay active at home, at the office, or simply around the neighborhood for optimal health. Serving Healthy provides counseling that includes a complete nutrition analysis, meal plans and recipes, and activity programs to embark on a lifelong change to better health.

Paul Webster has been “serving healthy” nutrition and physical activity counseling to his clients for more than four years. Courtesy photo

HISTORY Paul Webster was a junior Olympian athlete who later went to culinary schools in France, Italy, and here in the U.S., after realizing that the standard American diet is not a healthy one. “I always thought I was healthy because I was an athlete,” says Webster, “but I had health issues ranging from high blood pressure and high cholesterol to pre-diabetes. That’s what brought me to where I am today, living healthy with good nutrition and activity.” By Andrea Doray

AUTO DEALER Brothers Autos, LLC

5059 Ward Road, Wheat Ridge brothersautosllc.com 720-385-8889

Our goal is for you to be so delighted with your vehicle purchase that you’ll come see us when you need your next car and will happily recommend us to friends and family. Customer referrals are the ultimate compliment. — Mike Autio

WHAT THEY DO Brothers Autos is dedicated in providing the ultimate automobile buying experience, offering quality pre-owned vehicles from $3,000 up to $25,000. “We have extensive relationships in the dealer community allowing us to purchase a wide variety of lease returns and new car trades at exceptional values,” says Mike Autio, co-owner of Brothers Autos. “This enables us to pass along huge savings on the highest quality vehicles of your choice.” Autio and his business partner Travis Parker are out to change the negative perception of “used car dealers” by providing a broad range of clean cars, trucks and SUVs. They also offer a full array of financing options to meet their customers’ needs, and they encourage shoppers to browse their inventory online.

HISTORY Brothers Autos co-owners Travis Parker and Mike Autio are not related, but “we fight like brothers,” says Autio with a laugh. After working separately for car dealers and in RV sales, Autio and Parker were golfing one day when they decided to start their own in 2015. “It took us six months to get the doors open, but we now carry 25 to 30 great cars on the lot,” says Autio.
