Kingdom Coffee is planning to expand its footprint with a shop in southeast Springfield.

Co-owner Isaac Neale said the ownership group has signed on to a shopping center under construction off Lone Pine Avenue and Battlefield Road. Kingdom Coffee is located downtown at 211 S. Market Ave.

“We’ve been anticipating opening a second shop for a while,” said Neale. “We’re always dreaming and we’re always wanting to do something else… and we think there is a market there that can be capitalized on.”

The new coffee shop will be at 2900 S. Lone Pine Ave., where West Plains-based Overland Properties LLC is adding on to its Battlefield Towers shopping center with a 2,400-square-foot, stand-alone building. Developer Rod Hamby said construction is expected to be complete in September and a second tenant has not yet signed on to the remaining 1,200 square feet.

Neale said the shop will feature a different food menu than the downtown store and will offer curbside pickup and outdoor seating. The business will roast its coffee downtown for both stores, he said. The building will have a deck that overlooks the greenway trail behind the property, said Hamby.

He said expansion costs are roughly $90,000, and about seven employees will be hired for the new store. Kingdom Coffee should be operational soon after construction on the building wraps up, he said.

Base Construction & Management LLC is general contractor for the project with design work by Arkifex Studios LLC. Overland Properties also owns the Georgetown Square and Eastgate Plaza shopping centers in Springfield, as well as shopping centers throughout southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas, said Hamby. The estimated cost of the construction project is $681,000.
