Rich Parlontieri/Speedemissions

Speedemissions is a 14-year old company that was among the first to develop and build the emission-test-only store in Atlanta. They’ve grown to 43 location in four major cities: Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Salt Lake City. In 2010, they developed CARbonga, the first iPhone app for consumers to diagnose their own vehicles for emission problems and more. That app was followed up with CARbonga-SRI, a revolutionary iPhone app that provides details about a car’s safety recall status and technical services bulletins. Most recently, they have been piloting an emissions repair model that has lead to re-branding the company with two new brands: Expresso Emissions and Expresso Car Care Café. The names, logo design and store were just introduced in mid- January. In addition, they just signed a joint venture, Retail Vehicle Registration, to provide the consumer with an easy way to renew their vehicle registration without the hassle of a DMV.

Charles Hall/Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia

Hyperbaric Physicians of Georgia is a medical practice focused on resolving wounds that are not healing with basic care. The physicians in their group are certified in wound healing and hyperbaric medicine. Each of their four locations (Whitcher Street Medical Office Building attached to Kennestone Hospital; St. Joseph Hospital lower level; Northside Forsyth Hospital campus, Bldg 1505; and Lithonia near Hillandale Hospital) are UHMS Accredited hyperbaric medicine centers. With hyperbaric medicine and a full armament of evidence-based wound resolution products, their physicians are able to heal (or at a minimum, significantly improve) the majority of wounds, thermal injuries and late effects of radiation presented to them. In most cases a physician referral is not necessary to be seen by one of their doctors for evaluation (depending on insurance requirements). Most insurance and Medicare/Medicaid is accepted.
