Flo Restaurant and Wine Bar LLC
Brothers John and Johnson Tan opened Flo Restaurant and Wine Bar LLC on Nov. 8 at 2925 E. Battlefield Road, Ste. 105, in Claremont Commons. Armed with a $430,000 U.S. Small Business Administration-backed loan from Liberty Bank, the Tans signed a five-year lease on the 3,500-square-foot space for $4,600 a month. The property is owned by Kensington Place Development Group LLC. The restaurant specializes in tapas with a limited dinner menu, John Tan said. Happy hour is twice daily, 3–7 p.m. and 10 p.m.–close, and the restaurant’s bar features an Italian wine-serving system that dispenses 1-, 3- and 6-ounce pours. Called Enomatic, Tan said the system maintains the integrity of the wine longer. Hours: 3 p.m.–1:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m.–midnight Sunday. Phone: (417) 886-0356.

Price Cutter Plus at Chestnut Crossing
Pyramid Foods, the parent company of Price Cutter, opened its 48th store Nov. 3 at 335 N. Nolting Ave. at the intersection of Chestnut Expressway and West Bypass. The 55,000-square-foot store is leased from RED Taylor Properties LLC for undisclosed terms, said Larry Hayward, vice president of Pyramid Foods. RED Taylor Properties was created earlier this year by Pyramid Foods CEO Richard Erick Dwight Taylor, according to Missouri secretary of state filings. Hayward said Pyramid chose the location because it filled a void in northwest Springfield after Price Cutter closed on College Street. Employee-owned Pyramid Foods operates stores in Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma under the Price Cutter, Ramey, Smitty’s, Bistro Market, Save-A-Lot and Country Mart names. Hours: 6 a.m.–midnight daily. Phone: (417) 863-1772.

Christian Action Ministries
Christian Action Ministries relocated Nov. 1 to 610 S. Sixth St., Ste. 102, in Branson. Executive Director Pat Davis said the food pantry and offices operate in the lower level of the Faith Community Health Clinic building under a five-year lease with the clinic. A six-figure donation from Sight & Sound Theatre helped make the move possible, Davis said, declining to disclose the exact amount. CAM opened in 1985 with aid from 11 Branson churches, and a second food pantry is on East Highway 76 in Forsyth. CAM is supported by financial and food donations. Davis said 360,000 food items have been distributed this year through September. About one in five are families seeking help for the first time, she said. CAM’s 2008 income was $551,025, and the organization contributed $310,835 in goods and services, according to the organization’s IRS 990 form. Hours: Noon–4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Phone: (417) 334-1157.
