Lloyd Pest & Termite Control

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Pest Control | Southern California looked a little different back in the early 1930’s when my grandfather, Al, began chasing rats from local warehouses and businesses. The downtown construction boom had sent rodents scurrying everywhere. Panicked, many business owners called upon the services of Lloyd Pest Control, which, at the time, consisted of one exterminator. Rats are nocturnal, so Granddad often waited until nighttime to enter warehouses. He favored a .22 caliber rifle which he loaded with bird shot. My grandfather had a great commitment to getting rid of his customers’ pests – and an even better aim. The word got out. Before long, there were two trucks, another exterminator. Then came a lot of what, I suppose, could be termed research and development. Granddad would perform a pest elimination service, and then sit down with the business owner to discuss results and strategies for improvement. It was this concept of partnership that helped my grandfather and Lloyd Pest Control grow to be so successful. Today, two generations later, Lloyd Pest Control’s elimination service covers Southern California with more than 200 radio-dispatched trucks, 200 licensed technicians, supervisors, a Quality Control staff, an entomologist, and a biologist. But we’ve never forgotten our roots. Recently, one of our managers found a dusty ledger from the 1940’s. I thumbed through its yellowed pages. Most entries simply recorded information that customers had shared with our service men. But it got me thinking. I realize that we have become one of Southern California’s premier pest elimination companies for two reasons, both of which were handed down by my grandfather. We are committed to always finding a better way to do our job. And we still learn the needs of our customers by listening to them. Thank you for considering our family to protect your valuable investment. We look forward to working with you to keep your property pest-free for many years to come. OUR GUARANTEE If the bugs come back during your guarantee period, so will we — at no charge. And if you're not happy, we will give you a 100% refund on your service visit. [read more]

Partners In Home Care

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: In-Home Care- Non-medical | Our Story I began this journey as a young adult who was actively involved in the care for my aging grandparents and then years later, my father’s battle with cancer. Our family encountered a tremendous amount of frustration and heartache in our search for the right care option. I would like to say that our first experience with home care was the positive result we were hoping for, but unfortunately it was far from that. It took time, effort, and many tears, but we finally found an amazing home care solution! No family should have to go through a “bad” home care experience. However, for me personally, experiencing both sides helped me realize the type of service we could be proud of and the type of company that could impact the lives of our clients and their families.​ It is my personal mission to bring quality and individualized care into the home of each client we care for.

USS Midway Museum

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Museum • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Museum | MIDWAY HISTORY OUR JOURNEY The USS Midway was the longest-serving aircraft carrier in the 20th century. Named after the climatic Battle of Midway of June 1942, Midway was built in only 17 months, but missed World War II by one week when commissioned on September 10, 1945. Midway was the first in a three-ship class of large carriers that featured an armored flight deck and a powerful air group of 120 planes. From the beginning of its service, the Midway played key roles in the Cold War. In 1946 it became the first American carrier to operate in the midwinter sub-Arctic, developing new flight deck procedures. The following year Midway became the only ship to launch a captured German V-2 rocket. The trial’s success became the dawn of naval missile warfare. Just two years after that, Midway sent a large patrol plane aloft to demonstrate that atomic bombs could be delivered by a carrier. Midway served with the Atlantic Fleet for ten years, making seven deployments to European waters, patrolling “the soft underbelly” of NATO. A round-the-world cruise took Midway to the west coast in 1955, where it was rebuilt with an angled deck to improve jet operations. Midway’s first combat deployment came in 1965 flying strikes against North Vietnam. Midway aircraft shot down three MiGs, including the first air kill of the war. However, 17 Midway aircraft were lost to enemy fire during this cruise. In 1966 Midway was decommissioned for a four-year overhaul. Over a chaotic two day period during the fall of Saigon in April 1975, Midway was a floating base for large Air Force helicopters which evacuated more than 3,000 desperate refugees during Operation Frequent Wind. As potential threats to the Arabian oil supply grew, and to relieve strain on U. S.-based carriers, Midway transferred to Yokosuka, Japan, making it the first American carrier home ported abroad. In 1990 Midway deployed to the Persian Gulf in response to the Iraqi seizure of Kuwait. In the ensuing Operation Desert Storm, Midway served as the flagship for naval air forces in the Gulf and launched more than 3,000 combat missions with no losses. Its final mission was the evacuation of civilian personnel from Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines after the20th century’s largest eruption of nearby Mount Pinatubo. On April 11, 1992 the Midway was decommissioned in San Diego and remained in storage in Bremerton, Washington until 2003 when it was donated to the 501(c)3 nonprofit San Diego Aircraft Carrier Museum organization. It opened as the USS Midway Museum in June 2004. [read more]

Trader Joe's

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Grocery Store • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Grocery Store | In 1958, Joe Coulombe took over a small chain of convenience stores around the LA area. These were called Pronto Markets. The whole idea was fast. Pronto – quick, right? And they were convenience stores, before we really even know what convenience stores were. The kind of place where you could get anything from, say, a pack of gum to some pantyhose. After 10 years of running Pronto Markets, the convenience store formula just didn’t continue to make sense. So, Joe, the classic entrepreneur, took note that the demographics were changing in the United States because of the G.I. Bill of Rights, a large experiment in mass higher education, and identified an opportunity to deliver… something different. The first Trader Joe’s store opened in 1967 in Pasadena, California. (That store is still there. It's still operating. It still has the same parking lot.) The store had a nautical theme and it was run by people who were described as “traders on the high seas.” At the time, Joe had been reading a book called "White Shadows in the South Seas," and he’d been to the Disneyland Jungle Trip ride, and it all just…coalesced. To this day, Trader Joe’s Crew Members consider themselves “traders on the culinary seas” and are known for their bright, tropical-patterned shirts and for generally being nice, helpful, and well informed. And then in 1972, Joe introduced a total game changer for Trader Joe's... Granola. Not just any granola, though. This was the first private label Trader Joe's product. After granola, we never looked back. Focusing on private label (products with “Trader Joe’s” name on them) simplified a lot of things, and removed a lot of costs – no more slotting fees, marketing fees, middlemen fees… We passed along those savings to our customers (still do), because the value of Value is invaluable. And to us, “Value” means offering the best quality products for the best, everyday prices. We understood then, as we do today, that maintaining our everyday focus on Value is vital, which is why we don’t have sales, loyalty programs, membership fees, or any other gimmicks. Instead, here is what we do: We buy direct from suppliers whenever possible, we bargain hard to get the best price, and then pass the savings on to you. If an item doesn’t pull its weight in our stores, it goes away to gangway for something else. We buy in volume and contract early to get the best prices. Most grocers charge their suppliers fees for putting an item on the shelf. This results in higher prices... so we don’t do it. We keep our costs low—because every penny we save is a penny you save. So, where were we…? In 1988, when Joe retired, Trader Joe's had 19 stores. John Shields took over as CEO, and saw the opportunity to transfer this grocery store concept across geographical boundaries, starting with entry into Northern California. Then came Arizona, followed by the Pacific Northwest, and… by 1996 we had opened our doors on the East Coast. John understood that de-centralized and aligned decision-making would help to facilitate our growth. Nearly a decade later, there were 150 Trader Joe’s stores across the country. In 2001, Dan Bane assumed the role of Chairman and CEO and focused on making us a national chain of neighborhood grocery stores. Today, we have 488 stores in 41 states and the District of Columbia, and counting… Okay, we skipped over a few milestones, but you can catch them in the Trader Joe’s Timeline. It’s a trip.

Artificial grass never needs to be cut, trimmed, or edged. Plus, after our synthetic turf has been properly installed, it can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years! In that time, you can save up to thousands of dollars simply by cutting out traditional turf’s labor-intensive maintenance costs. Synthetic grass can be the best choice for the environment as well. As an artificial grass San Diego company, we know how water-intensive and costly traditional sod grass lawns can be in low-precipitation drought conditions. With water costs and temperatures constantly on the rise, natural sod is no longer a realistic option for many areas. As a result, we engineered and now provide synthetic turf to the San Diego area and across the United States that can withstand all weather conditions. No more using water to quench an insatiably thirsty lawn. No more adding harmful toxins to your lawn and surrounding neighborhood to kill weeds or encourage growth. No more gas-powered lawn trimmers. No more expensive lawn maintenance crews. You don't need any of these costs or chemicals when you have a lawn that will retain its luscious green in the harsh heat of summer and the freezing cold of winter. Why let your once-manicured lawn turn brown and disheveled when there is a less expensive, aesthetically-pleasing option you can add to your residential landscaping? Bring relief to your water bills while improving your home’s outward appearance with EasyTurf’s artificial grass today! [read more]

Rubio's Coastal Grill

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Fish Tacos • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Fish Tacos | A CLASSIC LOVE STORY Ralph RubioMan meets fish taco. Man eats fish taco. Man falls in love with fish taco. Such was the case for Ralph Rubio, co-founder of Rubio's. As a college student, Ralph made regular pilgrimages to Mexico's best beaches to surf, sun and socialize. It was on one of these trips that Ralph sat down at a seaside taqueria and met his true love. He was hooked on the fish taco. Several years later, with the help of his entire family, Ralph opened his first Rubio's. A walk-up stand in Mission Bay, San Diego. It was at that walk-up stand that America had its first taste of the fish taco. Soon, they too were hooked. As word of Ralph's fish tacos spread, so did his business. One restaurant quickly expanded to three, and before long, San Diego's best-kept secret was out. Rubio's started a fish taco phenomenon that spread from coast to coast. Each new restaurant brought not just The Original Fish Taco® recipe, but also Ralph's commitment to fresh and high quality ingredients. A commitment that has become as synonymous with Rubio’s as the taco that made us a coastal favorite. STILL GOING STRONG Since that day back in 1983, Ralph, with the help of a lot of great people, has sold more than 200 million fish tacos! People still love the taste of The Original Fish Taco®. And now, as our menu has grown to include responsibly sourced grilled seafood options along with steak and all natural chicken raised without antibiotics, served in tacos, salads, bowls, and burritos, guests have found more new originals to love. The flavors we prepare in our kitchens today are a combination of our south of the border roots and the influence of California's coastal waters and farm-fresh ingredients. We still offer our Original Fish Taco®, as well as an array of one-of-a-kind recipes focusing on grilled seafood. Any one of them with some salsa (made daily), rice or chips is guaranteed to make a coastal cuisine match made in heaven. Rubio’s is still based out of San Diego, though we operate nearly 200 restaurants. So next time you’re feeling a little coastal, feel free to come in and kick back, soak up our version of a sunny day, and taste something outside of the ordinary. [read more]

Broken Yolk Cafe

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Breakfast • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Brunch | Broken Yolk Café locations ARE OPEN! Pacific Beach Gaslamp Mission Valley Eastlake Del Mar La Costa Mira Mesa San Marcos Carmel Mountain Rancho San Diego Oceanside The Original Broken Yolk Café started in 1979 in Pacific Beach, a local beach community in San Diego, California. For years, wait lines ran out the door on weekends causing passers-by to stop in and give the restaurant a try. “Once they tried us, they were generally hooked. We’re known for high quality, homemade food and large portions,” says the brand owner. After a 2009 feature on The Travel Channel’s Man vs Food introduced the brand to millions of viewers outside of Southern California, calls came in from would-be investors, causing the owners to seek help with a franchise expansion model. Now the hometown favorite has grown to 15 locations in San Diego County, 34 locations nationwide, and 10 more in development. If you ask people that live in San Diego why they love the Broken Yolk, they will most likely say, “Their Benedicts…especially the Golden State Benedict.” “Large portions and lots of omelets to choose from.” “Fresh baked biscuits and muffins that smell amazing when you walk in.” and “Lots of variety on their menu from a traditional bacon and eggs breakfast to amazing dishes like the Tiki Toast, Hawaiian bread made into French toast or the Fiesta Burrito.” So many people know the Broken Yolk name from vacationing in San Diego,” says the Vice President of Franchise Development. “Breakfast has been the fastest growing day part for five years and our fresh, from-scratch cooking is a hit no matter where you live.” With so many new restaurants on the horizon, should we expect big changes from the local favorite? “Like any growing brand, we’ll continue to stay current with demographic trends, but our primary focus will always be on serving high quality food and giving each guest a great experience.” [read more]

Sprouts Farmers Market

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Health Food Store • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Health Food Store | Our History Some say natural is the new normal – but at Sprouts, there’s nothing new about natural foods! Back in 2002, we opened our first store in an effort to make natural foods accessible to everyone. Up until then, grocers offering fresh, organic choices were either too expensive to shop or too hard to find. We wanted to be different! No more weaving through a maze of narrow aisles without anyone offering to help. No more ingredient lists featuring 40 unpronounceable chemicals. And most of all, no more spending an entire paycheck for food from the honest effort of a farmer – not a factory. To us, being different is good! People thought we were crazy when we wouldn’t sell the country’s top-selling sodas, snacks and candy. But we believed that eating clean and living healthy was more than just a trend. At Sprouts, it’s our passion. And we knew that by focusing on farm-fresh produce and other healthy, affordable items, we could create a grocery experience where you didn’t have to be wealthy to eat healthy! So think of Sprouts as all of the very best parts of a real farmers market under one roof, open every day of the week. With our commitment to value in every department, and knowledgeable and friendly team members, we’re confident that once you shop Sprouts you’ll think different is good too. Today we have grown to more than 340 stores and over 30,000 team members. It’s these individuals who are the key to our success. They’re the ones who put good at the heart of everything we do at Sprouts … every day, in every community, with every guest. [read more]

Phil's BBQ

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Barbecue Restaurant • 2019 San Diego's Best Winner: Barbecue Restaurant | About Phil's BBQ Since 1998, BBQ lovers across San Diego County have turned to restaurateur Phil Pace to satisfy a singular craving: mesquite grilled baby back and beef ribs, chicken and sandwiches. Serving thousands of customers a day from a diverse clientele of skateboarders to Bentleys, Phil has built his foundation on consistency, quality, freshness and friendly service. "We thrive on providing each guest with the 'Phil's Experience', which basically comes down to organized chaos," laughs owner Phil Pace. "The biggest reason behind our success is our loyal customers who have supported us and waited in line for a taste of BBQ since '98." Since opening its doors in San Diego, Phil's BBQ has served over one million gallons of Phil’s signature BBQ sauce (enough to fill Shamu's tank). Expanding from four employees to well over 400, Phil's BBQ has become an employer of choice in San Diego. In 2007, after the smoke cleared from the original Phil's BBQ location in Mission Hills, the restaurant relocated to a much larger space in Point Loma. Even with a change of location, the Phil's experience and menu remains the same: long lines of anticipation, an energetic, friendly atmosphere, fantastic food, huge portions and many, many, paper towels. In 2010, Phil's BBQ San Marcos opened with great anticipation from our fans in the northern portion of San Diego County. Santee and Petco Park opened in 2012, and our fifth restaurant opened in 2013 at San Diego International Airport. Phil doesn't come from a long line of BBQ connoisseurs. Instead, he created from scratch a top-secret recipe for BBQ rubs and sauce while taking his dad's advice to only cook what he knows best and treat employees like family. Phil has been a pioneer of fast-casual dining since the opening of the first restaurant, giving San Diegans what they want - great BBQ. Taking care, satisfying cravings and supporting customers has always been #1. Because commitment to the San Diego community has been an intricate part of the journey, Phil's BBQ has contributed over one million dollars to various charities over the past seventeen years. Phil's BBQ offers full service catering and has a fleet of high tech trucks fully equipped with hands free phones and GPS systems to ensure each craving gets satisfied.

94th Aero Squadron

• 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Brunch • 2020 San Diego's Best Winner: Buffet (Noncasino) | It would be difficult to find another restaurant with as much warmth and charm as the 94th Aero Squadron. Located inside a replica of a World War I French farmhouse, the restaurant sits overlooking Montgomery Field Airport and is packed full of military memorabilia, antique farm implements, and aviation relics. The interior is cozy and romantic, with huge stone fireplaces, masses of hanging green plants, dark wood paneling, beamed ceilings, and old airplane wings hanging over the dining area. There are even headphones at some of the tables for diners to listen to the FAA control tower. On warm evenings and at lunchtime, you can sit outdoors on a grassy embankment at umbrella topped tables and be surrounded by old model airplanes and an army jeep. ---------------------------------------- The 94th Aero Squadron was one of the first American fighter squadrons to see combat service. It scored more victories than any other American squadron during the First World War. With such famous names as Rickenbacker, Lufbery, James Norman Hall and others, it became the most famous unit of early American airpower. The World War One aviator had to have the greatest of courage. When his frail machine broke up or caught fire, he usually fell thousands of feet to his death. He flew during a time when the full color of chivalry appeared and the skies of France saw mounted warriors bearing heraldic markings ride forth for individual combat. Honor and valor were respected by both sides, and the victor toasted the vanquished. This is the spirit and the atmosphere we have tried to recreate for your dining pleasure. [read more]
