YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
When Martha Cooper, owner of Cafe Basilico, moved back to Springfield, she had trouble finding a job because job requirements had changed for surgical technicians. Though she had previously owned a restaurant, her experience was primarily cooking at home. Cooper first taught herself to bake, then sold goods at the farmers market. Within three years of changing careers, she opened a brick and mortar restaurant.
The first downtown Springfield branch for Arvest Bank opened; a longtime licensed massage therapist became a first-time business owner; and 7 Brew Coffee opened its fourth shop in Springfield.
