Chedds is a unique restaurant that I featured a while ago that serves grilled cheese exclusively. With their traditional grilled cheese recipes, and some that are new and unusual, Chedds quickly grew in popularity since its launch; but now, it's getting a little bit of competition from a company that's found one way to top it - making grilled cheese mobile.
We've seen napping pods sent up in major urban centers before, but now, there's a new pop-up hotel designed to offer optimal convenience and comfort for travellers virtually wherever they are; even without a reservation!
For a night out, women dress themselves up, make themselves up, and sometimes talk themselves up when they meet a gentleman that they fancy. But these elements don't give men the green light to take whatever they want from the experience, and there's one cosmetics company that wants to ensure that just because women look beautiful, doesn't mean that they compromise their safety.
You might think the Cotton Candy is only something that you can find at your local fair; but if you've got a craving for something sticky and sugary that melts in your mouth and leaves your tongue bright pink or blue, then you're in luck if you live in NYC, because cotton candy may come to you.
I know what you're thinking - prefabricated houses aren't new. At some point, we've all known someone who's lived in a mobile home, trailer, or another sort of prefab home. But this new company has a fun name and a fun concept that's definitely worth talking about!
Previously, I came across a unique restaurant in Maine that offered people a free lunch in exchange for a nude dip in the lake. While naked restaurants just aren't common outside of nudist colonies, there are a few out there that, like Maine's Black Frog Restaurant are okay with an "au naturel" dress code, and the latest one is in Oregon.
When we think of "all inclusive" hotels, we automatically assume that it's a resort in the Dominican Republic or Mexico, sitting on or near a beach, where the food is often sub-par and the domestic beer and tropical drinks flow freely. Although most all inclusive hotels in the world are this popular style, one Singapore hotel is trying to transform the meaning of "all inclusive".
With exercise and employee well-being becoming a greater focus in many workplaces, a new company has released something that allows those who typically work at a computer to multi-task in a way that's for their own greater good, and that of the company that they work for. This concept isn't a business idea per say - but it's definitely worth mentioning because it might just set a new trend for workspaces of the future.
Club Bounce is a controversial Long Beach California night club that caters to a niche audience. Some feel it's discriminatory, others feel it actually eliminates discrimination; but everyone who visits has one thing in common, and it's not just their love of bumping and grinding with a vodka tonic in hand.
What would you think if you were hired for a job, not because of your skills, your sunny personality, or even (let's just say it) your appearance; because, instead, the company was focusing upon your genes to determine if you're a good match or not? That's exactly what innovative company Arbita is proposing by taking a closer look at how the Human Genome Project could play a role in job recruitment.
