DigitMint Inc.
DigitMint Inc., a digital currency service, opened its third office in July at 431 W. Bryant St., with the intent of launching a cryptocurrency ATM in September. Customers will be able to exchange cash for cryptocurrency, such as bitcoin, Litecoin or Ethereum. President Josh Dunn, of Mount Vernon, said he and Vice President Jung Rok “Eric” Oh, of Georgia, received federal approval through the U.S. Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and are working to earn a money-transmitting license in Missouri. The state requires an audit by a certified public accountant and $5,000 a surety bond payment to confirm the company is solvent. DigitMint opened a Los Angeles office in November 2016 and an Atlanta office in March. Dunn had worked as a bitcoin consultant for other companies prior to incorporating DigitMint in January. Cryptocurrency refers to digital money with encryption techniques used to generate units and verify the transfer of funds.

The Big Slice LLC
New York-style pizzeria The Big Slice LLC moved two doors down Aug. 24 to 1454 E. Sunshine St., after Alterations Unlimited relocated from the strip center. The 4-year-old eatery doubled in size with the move to 4,000 square feet and capacity of 96 people. Owner Levi Grant said he renovated the space and purchased five new pizza ovens as well as the restaurant’s first walk-in refrigerator, with $150,000 in funding from Guaranty Bank and construction work by Artisan Construction Services and Edge Stoneworks LLC. The Big Slice’s 15 employees offer dine-in and delivery pizzas by the slice or by the pie, said Grant, ranging from cheese for $2.50 to the 13-topping, 12-ounce “beast mode” slice for $6. Grant is in a seven-year lease with CLB Legacy Holdings LLC, which bought the building last year.

Plaza Tire Service Inc.
Cape Girardeau-based Plaza Tire Service Inc. on Aug. 4 opened its second Springfield store, adjacent to the Springfield Plaza development, at 3820 W. Sunshine St. The eight-bay, eight-employee shop provides brakes, alignments, fluids, shocks, struts and tune-ups, said Marketing and Advertising Manager Brian McMillan. The store keeps 2,200 tires in stock, he said. Plaza Tire’s in-house contractor Boulder Construction LLC built the 8,650-square-foot stand-alone building, which more closely resembles the company’s typical stores, McMillan said, as opposed to the East Sunshine Street shop that opened April 1 in a retrofitted building. The land and construction costs were undisclosed. Brothers Mark and Scott Rhodes own the chain, founded in 1963 by their father, and operate 62 stores mostly in eastern Missouri. Barron Rice, who opened the first local Plaza Tire, manages the new store. McMillan said demolition work for a third store is completed at 2811 S. Campbell Ave., with a goal to open by late 2017 or early 2018.
Hours: 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday
