Unique Ultrasound Review

Unique Ultrasound Provides Temecula Families First Look

From conception to birth, the journey to parenthood has remained relatively the same for centuries, but modern technology has recently changed that by adding an entirely new layer and experience for parents to treasure. Although nothing can compare to the simple joy of becoming a parent, ultrasound technology is now giving soon-to-be parents a glimpse into the development of their child. 3D/4D ultrasounds are an exciting new and non-evasive method that allows soon-to-be parents a more visual way to better connect with their still developing and growing child, and Unique Ultrasound located in Temecula is one of the locally owned and operated family businesses that offer this wonderful experience for anyone interested at getting a glimpse of their child before baby arrives!

Unique Ultrasound offers a number of different services that include gender determination ultrasound at 14 weeks, 3d/4d Ultrasound, Level One Diagnostics and classes to prepare soon-to-be parents for the birth and care of their newborn. However, what really separates this business from many of the others offering similar services is the way the company really focuses and caters to Moms and families by providing a spa like atmosphere. The ultrasound room can hold up to 15 guests and the medical staff can project ultrasound pictures onto a 100 inch screen so family, friends and other guests can all sit back and experience seeing baby for the first time! The entire experience is so incredible that when Temecula coupons and daily deals company TemecuLove asked Robin Badillo, the owner of Unique Ultrasound, about her personal background of how parents reacted when seeing the images from ultrasounds she stated, “Parents are so overwhelmed with emotions of happiness that it is common they shed tears of joy. After their ultrasound the soon-to-be parents can’t keep the smile off their face, its beautiful and classic! It really brings the feeling of expecting to a whole new level when you can see the little one that is growing inside you!”

Robin has been giving soon-to-be parents all throughout the Temecula Valley a glimpse of their babies for nearly 7 years. As a parent herself, Robin chose to start Unique Ultrasound in the Temecula area because as she explained “There are so many young and loving couples starting their families in this beautiful area that it just made sense for us to start business in Temecula”.

Five Questions For Robin At Unique Ultrasound!

1. What should soon-to-be parents expect when they come in to your business?

An experience that will last a life time! With each 3d/4d Session the families receive a DVD of their session so they can watch it over and over and even show it to their baby when they get older. So weather they are coming in for the fist time to find out the gender of their baby or seeing their baby in 3d/4d ultrasound, we offer an experience that they will remember and can look back on for years to come.

2. How accurate are the ultrasounds?

We guarantee our Gender Sessions 100% so if we are not able to see the gender of the baby (due to the position of the baby) we bring them back at no charge. We also offer a no-cost redo policy for the 3d/4d ultrasound sessions as well.

3. Does your staff have any special schooling, certification or accolades you would like to share?

Tara who teaches our Childbirth and Breastfeeding Classes is a Certified Lactation Educator, Certified Childbirth Educator, and Certified Labor Doula. Robin who teaches the Dr. Sears L.E.A.N. Classes is a Certified Health Coach.

4. Is there anything you would like locals to know about you or your business?

First, everyone that works at Unique Ultrasound loves what they do and we strive to give each family the best ultrasound experience at an affordable price. Secondly, we also know how important it is to be prepared for the arrival of your new little family member so we offer the following classes: Childbirth Classes, Breastfeeding Classes, Dr Sears L.E.A.N. Nutrition Classes, Newborn Care Class and a No Cost Breastfeeding Support group that meets twice a month.

5. Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Catering to the families in the Temecula area and expanding our services to other nearby cities.

Those interested in learning more about services offered by Unique Ultrasound can visit the company website or Facebook page for more information and details. Temecula deal seekers should be aware that the ultrasound company offers ongoing discounts of $5 off any session with a Facebook or Yelp check-in, as well as Military Family discounts of 10% off services. Returning family members can access a 10% discount, and Unique Ultrasound even created a special “Appreciation Package” for teachers, nurses, firefighters and police officers.

Nonno’s Italian Restaurant Review Murrieta

A Taste Of Italy In Murrieta

The Temecula Valley is home to a wide variety of locally owned and operated restaurants that specialize in cooking up yummy goodness guaranteed to please the palate. For foodies in the Murrieta area with a hunger for Italian, a restaurant known as Nonno’s has brought the region delicious, authentic Italian cuisine served by professionals and friendly staff who focus on treating every person who walks through their doors like family. Best described as a casual-fine dinning Italian restaurant, meaning high end service with affordable menu item pricing, Nonno’s has quickly become a popular hot spot among local Temecula Valley area residents.

When master Chef Luigi Mazzaro purchased a popular Italian restaurant that used to be called Ravioli’s Osteria (located off Murrieta Hot Springs Road), he believed with a new name, more authentic menu and higher level of waiting service that he could take what was a successful business to a whole new level. Pronounced no-no’s, meaning Grandfather in Italian, Chef Luigi opened the doors to his Murrieta based restaurant last September to numerous great reviews. In fact, according to the reviews posted on Yelp, Nonno’s is the highest rated local Italian restaurant in the area with an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars with over 30 reviews! That is a tremendous amount of positive feedback and local community support considering Nonno’s has not even been open for a year!

One of the coolest and most unique things about Chef Luigi is his approach to cooking which emphasizes only the best locally grown items. “We are proud to carry many different wines from our local Temecula vineyards and use produce from the local farmers market to support and invest in our community”, explained Chef Luigi. “We also do our best to use all natural and organic meats, as well as recycled paper products throughout our establishment.” Therefore, many of the ingredients that go into the food at Nonno’s were grown or produced locally in the Temecula/Murrieta area!

Five Questions With Chef Luigi!

1. Name at least one cool or unique thing about you or Nonno’s  that local foodies would find interesting?

Guests enjoy the classic Italian films we play with captioning, cooking demonstrations, and the live music on Friday and Saturday nights. We also provide happy hour and many other promotions throughout the week.

2. What is your most popular dish according to patrons?

I cannot say we have a most popular dish as we have many favorite dishes! I can say that our menu caters to any pallet and if given a chance we can find your favorite! The Ravioli Di Manzo, Ravioli Pugliese, Spaghetti alla Pescatora , Linguini Toscana, Pollo Al Tartufo, Veal Picatta, Linguine alle Vongole, and Tagliatelle Mare e Monti are definitely some of our most popular dishes varying widely to accommodate different tastes.

3. What is your personal favorite dish?

All of our homemade pastas are delicious, but I do love the Tagliatelle Mare e Monti! Homemade tagliatelle pasta is tossed in a sherry wine cream sauce with mushrooms, shallots, shrimp, and scallops. Delicioso!

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

I was born and raised in Italy so any time I have a chance I love to go there.

5. Where do you see your business in five years?

We have a loving and loyal staff which I hope to see grow, as well as our client base. We have customers who have become friends which followed me from my old restaurant (Mazzaro’s in Temecula) and have also met many other business owners. I hope to become a common name that is loved for the great food, service, friendship, and contribution to the community that I provide through the support I receive from those in the Temecula Valley.

Nonno’s is a restaurant that every local foodie should stop by and have a bite to eat at whether it is for some quick appetizers during happy hour with friends or dinner for the whole family. When dinning at Nonno’s make sure to say hello to Chef Luigi who will most likely be in the kitchen preparing meals for the day. Of course that is assuming the man behind Nonno’s isn’t spending time with his family, enjoying some quality time in the wineries with his wife or riding his Harley!

Temecula coupons and Temecula deals company TemecuLove would like to personally thank Chef Luigi for bringing another quality family restaurant to the community and using almost entirely locally grown goods! Those interested in having Nonno’s provide catering services for any special events can get more detailed information on the Nonno’s Ristorante website. Nonno’s also offers banquet services for many occasions and can work with guests operating on a variety of budgets.

Benefits Of Company Gift Cards

Temecula Businesses Win With Gift Cards

The consumer is constantly evolving and changing their appetite when it comes to shopping preferences and habits, but one trend that has held steady is that consumers simply love gift cards. Gift cards work great as personalized gifts because they essentially eliminate the possibility of the gift card receiver not liking or exchanging the item. This form of consumer spending is easy on the both the shopper and gift receiver, while also generating large amounts of revenue for the merchant. Especially, around the holiday season where gift card purchases tend to peak in sales. Statistics show that retail gift cards are a great way for businesses to capitalize on consumer interest and spending, making it imperative that all businesses no matter how big or small take advantage of this unique form of sales. Here are the top 5 reasons why your Temecula Valley business should consider offering gift cards to customers.

1. Gift Card Sales Are Easy

A company doesn’t need to be Red Robin, Wal-Mart or one of the clothing store giants in the Promenade Mall to offer gift cards. In fact, with resources at the local level every small business can easily offer gift cards to their customers. If a local automotive repair shop, fashion boutique or Thai restaurant doesn’t want to invest in flashy customized gift cards they can work directly with an online partner who specializes in gift card sales. Many of these gift card websites won’t even charge an upfront cost or insertion fee, only taking a small percentage of each gift card that is sold on their online platform. Temecula Gift Cards is one company at the local level that can not only create a digital gift card for any Temecula business but also help promote it to online shoppers throughout the Temecula Valley!

2. Avoid Exchanges

When holidays, birthdays or special events come around it can be a challenge for the shopper to pick out a product, item or service that is exactly what the receiving party wants or needs. Clothing can be the wrong size, people have different tastes in food and most people don’t need a second toaster. Gift cards essentially eliminate exchanges because customers who purchase them give the recipient the ability to have some choice in the products or services they want to buy. Businesses can avoid the costs associated with processing and handling returns by offering indecisive shoppers an alternative with a gift card.

3. Expand Marketing Efforts

Displaying a gift card in your store or restaurant is a good way to let customers know they can purchase them, but this only promotes the gift card to your existing customer base. The goal for any small business is to not only keep returning customers happy, but also attract new customers. That is another benefit of gift cards: they can also be used as a marketing technique. Small businesses in the Temecula Valley can reach a greater audience by partnering up with local Temecula coupon, daily deal or gift card companies that will feature your businesses’ name, logo and services offered in a description beneath the promoted gift card image.

4. Unredeemed Balances

Getting exposure and avoiding the costs associated with returns are reason enough that every Temecula Valley business should offer gift cards to customers, but the primary reason large companies are in love with gift card sales is because of something known as additional interest income. An example of additional interest income would be when a consumer purchases a gift card you as the business owner receive cash in hand. Therefore, even though that money technically hasn’t been earned until the shopper comes in and redeems the gift card, the business can deposit the cash in hand into an interest generating account! Large corporations understand this interest can have an impact on revenues, adding profit to the business.

5. Additional Sales

When consumers purchase a Temecula daily deal or gift card for a pre-determined amount it is rare that the person using the voucher or gift card for redemption of goods/services uses the exact amount available to them. For example, a couple goes to a local Irish restaurant based on the fact that they have a $25.00 gift card for food to the establishment. However, once they are there they order some fish & chips as an appetizer, Shepard’s pie for dinner and wash it all down with a couple cold pints of Guinness. The bill comes out to roughly $40.00. That means not only did the patrons select the restaurant based on the fact they had a gift card, but they also spent more money than they had available on that gift card! This additional sales revenue generated from the initial purchase of a gift card is just another bonus!

Offering gift cards directly to your customers and working with a local Temecula coupon, daily deal or gift card company is the best way to capitalize on the financial and marketing benefits of retail gift cards. Create a simple way for customers to offer gifts to loved ones, expand your marketing reach, avoid product exchanges, encourage return shopping and gain interest with an influx of cash flow. Temecula Valley businesses should take advantage of any and all tools or strategies to increase sales or exposure if they want to have long-term success. Gift cards are one of those easy to launch sales and marketing strategies small business in Temecula can utilize that are not only cost-effective, but also essential to meeting the needs of the changing consumer.
