As one of the largest natural food retailers in the nation, Earth Fare makes healthy eating convenient, affordable, fun and - of course - delicious! With 16 stores in four states, Earth Fare offer everything from ready-to-go meal options, local and organic farm fresh fruits and vegetables, and full service meat, poultry and seafood departments.

Our Food Philosophy sets us apart: However, what really sets Earth Fare apart from other stores is not only what Earth Fare offers, but also what they don�t offer. Like any products with high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial colors, synthetic growth hormones (in the meat and milk) and unnatural sweeteners! Yep, they�re all banned from any products sold in our stores!

Active Care Chiropractic & Exercise Rehab – Asheville, NC

Mission Statement: To provide top quality neuromusculoskeletal care to patients with back, neck and extremity injuries; to provide this care in a manner as to permit the quickest return to activity and to encourage healthy, active lifestyles.

About Active Care: Active Care was developed to help patients reach their goals as quickly as possible. Every patient has a functional goal, be that to return to normal daily activities or continue training for a thru-hike along the Appalachian Trail or a paddle on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. Pain can be a limiting factor, preventing you from reaching your goals, so our goal is to reduce your pain by identifying and addressing the cause. Other times you may experience a decrease or change in function. For example, lifting a grandchild or working overhead may now be something you are finding difficult. There may be several reasons for this new limitation and our goal is to identify the cause and address it.

In order to fulfill the needs of patients that suffered an injury or are in pain we schedule a little extra time during patient visits. A typical initial visit at Active Care is 60-90 minutes, a typical follow-up visit is 25-60 minutes. We value the extra time we spend during the initial examination because this is our time to find the root cause of your pain so we can treat it effectively. Follow-up appointments are longer then average at Active Care because we understand that as the body heals changes occur and thorough treatments lead to faster recovery times.

Medical evidence has shown that the best management for patients with neuromusculoskeletal injures is for the patient to be actively involved in the treatment. We believe in this philosophy so much we have named the clinic Active Care: terminology commonly used in research to mean that the patient is actively involved in his or her own treatment. For you, this means increasing your function and getting you moving as much as possible and meeting your goals, be it a 15-minute daily walk or 15 mile run.

Eagles Nest Outfitters Inc – Asheville, NC

In the summer of 1999, brothers Peter and Paul Pinholster decided to permanently escape the traditional workplace and make hanging out their full time occupation. They wanted a business that would challenge them creatively, but also allow them to pursue a laid-back lifestyle.

They began as a small operation in Florida, planning to travel the East Coast in a ramshackle minivan and sell hammocks at music festivals and community gatherings along the way. In the early years, home was wherever the van was parked that night. The brothers dedicated their days and nights to making and selling the most comfortable hammocks in the world.

In a short time, the boys found themselves with more business than they could handle from the van. Weary from a life on the road, they eagerly settled down in Asheville, NC and continued growing the business into what is now a thriving company. Today, they continue to supply the best hammocks and accessories to like-minded people across the globe.
FIREWALKER Hot Sauce Company

Franco, Founder of FIREWALKER Hot Sauce Company:
"I grew up loving spicy foods and I searched for a hot sauce with the perfect combination of heat and flavor.

Too often I would find the sauces I tried were either barely hot enough to get my endorphins going or they would be all heat and devoid of flavor. I made it my mission to create what I had been craving.

The result is FIREWALKER Hot Sauce, the pure taste of citrus and garlic with a lucid habanero kick; crafted from the freshest all natural ingredients to enhance every bite, never to overpower.

I made the very first batch in a small apartment kitchen in Asheville, NC and we are still committed to handmade small batch production with locally grown produce to brighten and intensify your food.

FIREWALKER is proud to say we have No artificial Preservatives, No GMO's, No Sugar, No need to refrigerate, No Reason Not to try out our vibrant Hot Sauce!

I am passionate about making every meal an adventure.

If you feel the same and are ready for a truly dynamic sauce, lets fire-walk together!"

Griffin Waste Services
Griffin Waste: A Family Business Built on Experience, Innovation, and Customer Service: Griffin Waste Services, LLC began in April of 2002 in Asheville, NC as a family operation by Mike, Margo and Chad Griffin. We started the business with one new Mack roll-off and one new Ford F-450 with a Swaploader hook lift hoist. During that first year we added another new Mack and a second new Ford. In 2004 we sold the two Macks and our 30-yard waste containers to focus on the 10-yard business.

We learned that the 10-yard containers were in great demand and we were able to place them most anywhere without damaging property, unlike the larger dumpsters. Over the years we have learned what customers are looking for in a service provider, and we have focused on being the best, which has resulted in dynamic growth.

In late 2007 we used what we had learned about the business to see if our systems could be replicated in another market, so we started an operation in Knoxville, TN. After we got the Knoxville operation up and running under the management of Mike�s nephew Ryan Norwood, we evaluated how much time and resources it takes to learn what you need to know about markets and areas. We then decided to work on franchising our business so we could teach people that already had knowledge of the areas and markets to do what we had done.

Our first franchise operation began in 2010 in Charlotte, NC. Our second franchise operation serves the Northern Kentucky (Cincinnati) area and also opened in 2010. Our third and newest operation opened in Nashville, TN in May of 2011. We are working hard every day to instill in each employee and associate of Griffin Waste Services the attitude and ability to provide services that exceed our customer�s expectations.

Local Flavor Asheville
We are locals, too, who live, work and play right here in Asheville and share the common bond of loving and supporting all things local. Our story is not typical but rather magical. Perhaps we were pulled together by the vortex thing we keep hearing about? Back in October 2013 we came together at Startup Weekend and worked tirelessly for 54 hours to create an idea for a new business. The judges of the competition must have agreed that our app could go over big as they awarded us first place! Having their validation in our back pockets we were off, charging from the starting gates with Trevor Parker working his technical wizardry, Flori Pate designing our logo and developing the look and feel of our brand, and marketing guru Ted Pate driving us forward with his sage expertise.

We created this for the people but selfishly we wanted this app, too. Who doesn't want to know the latest Daily Scoops in this awesome mountain town the second they unfold? With new boutiques and restaurants opening daily and our thriving musicians and artists showcasing in multiple venues and galleries we all deserve to be in the know. We are proud to announce that this information is now available in a neat little app called LocalFlavorAVL. Enough with the reading, go grab your Rocket Girl and hop on the Purple Bus!
