Nalley Fresh has become a neighborhood favorite for the downtown office crowd, who line up to create their own rice bowls ($5.75), burrito wraps ($7.50) and salads ($8.30). Those prices include the addition of a basic protein, vegetables, homemade dressings and cheeses. You pick them out, and a counter crew prepares it. Lunch for $10 or less: Nalley Fresh Sound easy? It's not. Well, not the first time. The interface at Nalley Fresh can be confusing. You can add eight toppings to a salad, but it's hard to see all of your options before you start picking them out. It's really only a problem on your first visit, and the Nalley gang has learned to look out for customers with that deer-in-the-headlights stare - “First time?

AAI Corp., the Hunt Valley company known for its Shadow spy plane, said Tuesday that it is laying off 184 workers from its Baltimore County location. Workers were to be notified Tuesday. Before the layoffs, AAI employed more than 1,600 workers in Maryland. Meanwhile, Maryland's unemployment rate fell in December to 6.7 percent, the lowest since February 2009, the U.S. Labor Department reported Tuesday. The state added 3,100 jobs last month. Sharon Corona, AAI's director of external communications, said the job cuts affect workers at all levels and that those positions were being eliminated so that the company can be as "cost competitive as we can possibly be. " The move comes as the defense contracting dollars from the federal government are expected to dwindle.

Cover Girl has landed in the unflattering spotlight of the NFL domestic abuse scandal as activists pressuring sponsors to boycott the league circulate a doctored ad of a female football fan with a black eye. Hunt Valley-based Cover Girl, the official beauty sponsor of the NFL, is behind the "Get Your Game Face On" ad campaign featuring models wearing the jerseys and makeup colors of each of the league's 32 teams. That includes the Baltimore Ravens, where Ray Rice was a running back until his $35 million contract was terminated last week after a video surfaced that showed him knocking his fiancee unconscious in an elevator.

Boutique investment firm Hardesty Capital Management moved this month from its longtime home in Mount Vernon to a new office in Hunt Valley, which it said offers more modern conveniences and room to grow, while being closer to its customer base of wealthy Maryland families. The firm has looked to add clients, even as the rising stock market has helped drive its assets under management to more than $900 million, a record for the business. President Chad Meyer, who was hired as chief marketing officer last year, said the 14-person firm is looking to hire more people on the investment side to handle the increased funds, as well as staff that would help bring in business from other parts of Maryland and southern Pennsylvania.
