Arvest Bank
The first downtown Springfield branch for Arvest Bank opened March 1 at Brewery District Flats, 535 W. Walnut St. Chandler Johnston, marketing specialist for Arvest in Springfield, declined to disclose startup costs and lease terms with 5999 LLC for the 1,800-square-foot site. She said Mikala England, branch sales manager, leads a four-employee staff at Arvest’s newest location, which is its sixth in the Queen City. Its downtown branch doesn’t have a drive-thru, but its services include checking and savings accounts, auto, business, mortgage and home equity loans, credit cards and treasury management. Johnston said the Bentonville, Arkansas-based company has over 200 locations in Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma. As of June 30, 2022, Arvest Bank had roughly $982 million in local assets and $641 million in local net loans, according to bank officials, and local deposits were $446 million, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Fayetteville, Arkansas-based 7 Brew Coffee opened its fourth shop in Springfield on May 15. The 7 Brew at 333 S. Western Ave. is near the intersection of Chestnut Expressway and West Bypass. It marks the fifth shop in the Ozarks for brothers Chris and Brandon Sebald and friend Larry Wilson, who are company franchisees via Brew Crew LLC.

He said Makenzie Lester manages the 45-employee stand, declining to disclose startup costs. The shop has dual drive-thru lanes with a menu including iced and hot coffee, shakes, smoothies, energy drinks, teas and Italian sodas. Prices range $2-$7.
