Honda of the Ozarks
Dennis Revell opened Honda of the Ozarks on June 6 at 2055 E. Kerr St., near the Interstate 44 and Glenstone Avenue intersection. Earlier this year, Revell’s DR Motorsports LLC built a $1.7 million, 20,700-square-foot store to house the Level-5 Honda Powerhouse dealership, a certification issued by American Honda Motor Co. The dealership sells new and used Honda motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, generators, water pumps and lawn mowers, said Revell, who employs 15. The facility also includes a showroom, administrative offices and a service/parts department. Revell said scooters run about $2,000, ATVs retail for up to $8,000, and motorcycles range between $3,000 and $28,000 for the Gold Wing touring bike. Hours: 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Steak-Out franchisee James Medlock on May 24 bought out business partner Jeff Prantl. Medlock is now sole owner of the delivery and carry-out restaurant at 550 E. Chestnut Expressway. In the deal, Medlock said he purchased Prantl’s half of managing company JNP & JDM LLC for $40,000. Medlock and Prantl were Steak-Out managers when they came together about five years ago to buy the franchise rights from Bill Brandt, who brought the Atlanta-based franchise to Springfield in 1992. Medlock said he plans to get back to the restaurant’s basics by simplifying the menu and emphasizing quality service with his staff of roughly 14. Medlock and Prantl had been subcontracted to serve Steak-Out food in a College Station comedy club before those plans dissolved in the wake of a drug possession charge against its organizer, Travis Dibben. Hours: 10:30 a.m.–10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Phone: (417) 873-9400. Web:
