Open for Business: Everyday Thai LLC

Posted online

Everyday Thai LLC
Steven and Thippawan Shutts made a pivot on their Mobile Thai Kitchen on Jan. 31 by opening Everyday Thai at 2926 S. Campbell Ave. in Imperial Plaza. The husband-and-wife business partners had operated the food truck for two years in St. Robert. Thipp Shutts, who relocated from Thailand in 2009, was the only cook for the food truck, and as it gained popularity, she needed more help. The Shuttses decided to move to Springfield and signed a four-year lease for $2,500 per month with Ngo Properties LLC. The 1,500-square-foot space was previously occupied by Billy Sims BBQ. Everyday Thai employs six. Everyday Thai’s menu features appetizers, soups, salads and curry dishes, ranging from $5 to $13. After four years, Steven Shutts said the couple plan to buy their own building.

Legacy Bank & Trust Co.
Rogersville-based Legacy Bank & Trust Co. on Feb. 16 completed its purchase of First National Bank of Clinton, previously run by the Buerge family. The deal for undisclosed terms added three branches in Clinton and Springfield and $70 million in assets to the Legacy Bank portfolio. Legacy Bank, led by President and CEO John Everett, now employs 70 people at seven branches and has $237 million in assets, $184 million in deposits and $191 million in gross loans, according to a news release. Legacy Bank parent company Ozarks Heritage Financial Group Inc. in July 2017 announced it penned an agreement to buy Financial Enterprises Inc., the holding company of First National Bank of Clinton. Aaron Buerge, First National’s president and CEO for the company his family bought in 1970, became a board member of Ozarks Heritage Financial and Legacy Bank through the deal. The converted Springfield branch operates at 4108 S. National Ave., and it joins Legacy branches in Rogersville, Sparta, Mountain Grove and Plato.

Which Wich
Curt and Sheri Bartell brought the Which Wich franchise back to Springfield with a Feb. 19 sandwich shop opening at 1920 E. Independence St. in the James River Towne Center. They bought the rights to Which Wich from former franchisee Lyle Armstrong, who closed two shops in January 2016. Curt Bartell said he invested $350,000 to reopen the 25-employee franchise store in 1,800 square feet. In the spring, the husband-and-wife business partners plan to invest another $10,000 or more into outdoor patio seating for 15-20 customers, in addition to the capacity of 45 inside. The Bartells also operate two Orange Leaf frozen yogurt stores in Springfield, at 1638 E. Republic Road and 1011 S. Glenstone Ave. “It’s so much like Orange Leaf, as it’s creative and original; that’s why we wanted to get into it,” Curt Bartell said. Which Wich customers build their own sandwiches – typically ranging from $6 to $11.75 each – by checking off items on a paper bag. There are over 430 Which Wich stores in 40 states and 11 countries.
Hours: 10 a.m.-9 p.m. daily
