St. George’s to open Ozark store

Posted online

St. George’s Donuts plans to open a new store in Ozark later this summer.

Nick St. George, the owner of the 3628 E. Sunshine St. store in Springfield, said the Ozark location would be the second to operate under his NTSG Enterprises LLC. His brothers Kevin and Tony separately own St. George’s Donuts stores on South National Avenue in Springfield and in Marshfield, respectively.

Nick St. George is targeting an August opening for his Ozark store.

“For my second location, it makes sense to make it fairly easy for me to get back and forth to manage both of them,” he said, noting three years ago, he purchased the Sunshine Street store from his mother. “Ozark is growing. It seems to be booming down there.”

In Ozark, St. George signed a lease for undisclosed terms to occupy a 1,500-square-foot former Domino’s in a shopping center owned by KPAC Registered LLLP. Declining to estimate his investment in the 1415 W. State Highway J store, St. George said over the past few years, he’s been purchasing used equipment in anticipation of a second location. 

“I’ve been trying to spend my penny as far as I can,” he said.

At his 1,250-square-foot Springfield store, St. George said about 95 percent of his business comes from to-go orders.

“On the weekend, we get a lot more families coming in,” he added. “They hang out a little bit more after church or before they go do something for the day.”

I am so pleased that the St.Ge4orge family is doing well. i remember when the family opened their first donut shop and how fearful they were to set out their first shop. the concerns were what if they don't like our donuts and what if they can't find our shop, and will we make enough to pay the rent. it is so pleasing to see what a fine business family this has become. Plus, what marvelous donuts!!
