Phase 2
One-time Ebbets Field owner Lance Reeves opened Phase 2 restaurant Jan. 27 at 2627 E. Sunshine St. Reeves purchased the building in October for an undisclosed amount from John Dunlop and Brian Dodds, who had operated McSalty’s Pizza Cafe. Prepared by chef Dave Ponder, Phase 2 offers daily soups, such as mushroom sage and tomato basil, “luxury” burgers and sandwiches. On the dinner menu, Ponder serves steak filet and pasta dishes. Phase 2 also serves beer and wine. Since selling Ebbets Field in 2010, Reeves has said he’s invested in real estate locally and in Oklahoma.

Sole Traction LLC
Sole Traction LLC started operations Dec. 5 in Republic offering Nano-Grip’s nonslip technology in Missouri. Owner Drew Frank discovered the flooring application in an article online, and flew to Orlando, Florida, to make the $10,000 investment as an authorized business partner with Nano-Concepts. With the Nano-Grip product applied, he said mineral-based surfaces that get slippery when wet become safer – with no discernible change to the look or dry feel of a floor, tub or other surface. The installation costs $1.50 per square foot. Sole Traction, which is a mobile business, currently is Nano-Grip’s only authorized partner in Missouri. Kirk’s Collision Center in Republic is Frank’s first customer.
