Coryell Collaborative Group
Coryell Collaborative Group, an umbrella company of five TLC businesses operated by the Coryell family, moved April 3 to a new office at 3811 S. Weller Ave., Ste. A-101, in the mixed-use Cambium development. For the past 16 years, the companies operated from the Bradford Place office condominiums at 1531 E. Bradford Parkway, Ste. 305, said spokeswoman Carmen Piccioni. Sam M. Coryell is president of Coryell Collaborative Group, which comprises TLC Property Realty LLC, Good Deal Development LLC, TLC Properties Inc., Team C Construction LLC and Coryell Enterprises Inc. With around 135 employees across the five businesses, Piccioni said roughly 50 people will staff the 9,000-square-foot corporate office. Employees currently work remotely due to COVID-19 concerns, she said. She declined to disclose relocation costs or the 10-year lease rate with Edgewood REIT, which also owns Cambium.

Panini Grill LLC
While Springfield’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order currently prohibits dining in at restaurants, Panini Grill LLC began drive-thru service April 7 at 520 N. West Bypass. Owner Richard Bucher runs the kitchen as the lone employee until staff can be hired to work in the dining room. At the 1,800-square-foot eatery in the Carpenter Heights center, he said the menu features a dozen panini sandwiches, patty melts, wraps, soups, salads and sauteed pastas – priced at $5-$9. Bucher has 34 years of experience in the hospitality industry, and came to Springfield around 12 years ago after a decade of owning Al Dente’s Italian eatery in Russellville, Arkansas. Past Springfield work includes Houlihan’s and The Waterford at Iron Bridge retirement community, where he worked as a dietary chef. He declined to disclose startup costs or his three-year lease rate with Carpenter Heights LLC.

Life360 Community Services
Nonprofit Life360 Community Services occupied a former Price Cutter grocery store April 6 at 1901 E. Division St. to create a community resource hub for free food services to children ages 18 and younger. Life360 Community Services continues to operate out of The Fairbanks community center in Grant Beach, said Jeremy Hahn, executive director. The goal is to set up another five community hubs, he said. The nonprofit offers food to schoolchildren, helps with career placement and provides housing. Hahn said the 46,600-square-foot building is used to store and pack food for over a dozen school districts. He said roughly $1 million worth of freezer and refrigeration space already existed, cutting down on infill costs. The nonprofit expects to invest at least $1 million over the next couple of years for renovation of the space, leased on a six-year term for an undisclosed rate with Price Cutter operator Pyramid Foods, Hahn said.
