Everyday Thai LLC
It was a short move for Everyday Thai LLC owners Steven and Thippawan Shutts. The husband and wife moved their restaurant March 20 to 220 W. Battlefield Road from 2926 S. Campbell Ave. in Imperial Plaza. Down the block and on the south side of Battlefield, they bought a former Newk’s Eatery for $1.75 million, said Steven Shutts. At 4,200 square feet, he said it’s more than double the size of their previous restaurant, and higher visibility was a key factor. The couple opened Everyday Thai in January 2018 after previously operating a food truck in the Fort Leonard Wood area. The business finished 2019 with roughly $820,000 in revenue, he said, up from $300,000 in 2018. Its menu includes appetizers, soups, salads and curry dishes, in the $5-$16 range. The restaurant, which employs 17, currently offers delivery and curbside takeout, as dining in is on hold, due to COVID-19 concerns.
Hours: 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 5-9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
Christian County-based nonprofit CC Links moved Jan. 6 to Nixa, at 1548 N. Commercial Road. The organization, formerly located at 728 N. 22nd St. in Ozark, assists individuals with developmental disabilities and their families by coordinating resources and making service referrals to other community agencies. Executive Director Andrea Swope said CC Links purchased the 10,000-square-foot Nixa building in February 2019 for an undisclosed price. Insight Design Architects LLC and Grindstone Construction LLC handled the remodeling, she said, declining to disclose costs. Started in 2010 as the Christian County Board for the Developmentally Disabled, the agency became CC Links in 2013. Swope said the move accommodates expansion of its life skills classes and community events, as well as its 20-person staff, which serves over 500 individuals. CC Links operates under a nine-member volunteer board appointed by the Christian County Commission.
Hours: 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday
Precious K9s LLC
After three years operating in Galloway Village, Precious K9s LLC began dog training classes March 16 in a significantly larger building at 4854 S. State Highway FF in Battlefield. Owner and certified dog trainer Carrie Galvan is the lone full-time worker among five part-timers. Precious K9s now has 6,000 square feet indoors to use, up from less than 1,000 square feet at 3543 S. Lone Pine Ave. Galvan said she wanted more room for group classes and to add agility training. She’s on a two-year lease for undisclosed terms with Kelly Burk of steel building erection company Burk Erectors Inc. Due to COVID-19 concerns, Galvan said she’s currently providing online training classes through the company’s website. Classes include puppy training, therapy and service dog training, obedience work for all ages and private coaching sessions. The new home features AstroTurf, as well as agility equipment, including hoops, A-frames and weave poles. Galvan, who has been a dog trainer for over 20 years, estimated an investment of around $28,000 for the new home. She started Precious K9s in 2015.
