Legacy Bank & Trust Co.
Aug. 4 was opening day for Legacy Bank & Trust Co.’s $8 million new corporate headquarters, 3250 E. Sunshine St. Bank President Brett Magers estimated 60 employees are working out of the building at the Ingram Mill Road intersection. Base Construction & Management LLC was general contractor and BRP Architects was architect for the 40,000-square-foot, four-story structure, Magers said. A former Meek’s Lumber Co. building was demolished to make way for the new construction. Bank officials said the first floor comprises retail banking space and a drive-thru. The second and fourth floors are dedicated for commercial and administrative banking operations. Magers said New York Life Insurance Co. and the Kirkland Woods & Martinsen LLP law firm penned leases to share the third floor. Legacy Bank now has five locations following the Aug. 6 closure of its Rogersville branch, said CEO John Everett.

2 Gals Bar & Grill
A new Marshfield restaurant debuted Aug. 9 with the opening of 2 Gals Bar & Grill LLC. The eatery is located at 50 York Drive, Stes. 2-3, just off Highway 38 and near the Walmart Supercenter and Interstate 44 interchange. Jenifer Smith and Cassie Hoyt, who have been friends for several years, co-own the venture. 2 Gals Bar & Grill fills 3,000 square feet in space formerly occupied by barbecue restaurant Hog Eye Smoke Pit LLC, which shuttered in June. Smith said they purchased some of the kitchen and bar equipment from Hog Eye owner Nelson Hediger, but she declined to disclose startup costs or terms of the restaurant’s lease with Wayne York. The 15-employee eatery serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a menu including pancakes, burritos, burgers, quarter-pound hot dogs and ice cream. Prices range $2-$10. Smith said live music, pool tournaments and other entertainment are planned. Hoyt formerly owned Hoyt Painting & Cleaning, while Smith is a real estate agent with Keller Williams Greater Springfield.

Flannel Cup
A husband and wife took the plunge into food truck ownership with the June 30 launch of Flannel Cup LLC. Dre and Tamara Simpson are owners of the mobile eatery, which serves breakfast burritos, chicken and waffles, bagel and waffle sandwiches, smoothies and coffee roasted by Ava-based Melancholy Roasting LLC. Prices range $2-$6. Tamara Simpson said they also sell coffee in 1-pound bags, with ground and whole bean options. She said startup costs for the four-employee venture were roughly $32,000. The Simpsons originally planned to open a brick-and-mortar coffee shop in partnership with A hip joint co-owner Dr. Tania Reavis. However, Simpson said concerns over opening a shop during the coronavirus pandemic, and Reavis deciding to exit and focus more on expanding her business, caused them to pivot to a food truck. Simpson also is a real estate agent with Home Sweet Homes Realty and Associates, while her husband is a trainer at nutrition and fitness facility Achieving Your Best LLC.
