Revel Advertising

Revel Advertising opened Nov. 5 with four employees at 214 W. Phelps St., Ste. 102. Revel targets small- and family-owned businesses with print, radio and television advertising, and social media and public relations services, said Emily Johnson, creative director and partner with Chris and Nicole Jarratt. The partners have used $50,000 in savings to start the company and have applied for a state small-business loan. Revel is a rebranding of Jarratt Design, a freelance agency operated for six years by Chris Jarratt, whose specialty is graphic design. Johnson worked for Sydney, Australia, advertising agency DDB, as well as Noble, where she was art director for six years for clients such as Tyson, Mars, Otis Spunkmeyer and Tamco. Hours: 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Phone: (417) 368-6966.

Hog And Sauce
John Hamilton of Hamilton Restaurants LLC opened Hog And Sauce on Nov. 26 at 2938 E. Sunshine St., Ste. B. The restaurant offers only drive-through and carry-out service and specializes in smoked beef, pork or chicken pulled and served on the restaurant’s trademark pita bread. Hamilton, who also operates a Breadeaux Pizza under the Hamilton Restaurants banner, leases the space for an undisclosed amount from The Wooten Co. Mike Zalewski manages Hog And Sauce, which also offers catering services. Hours: 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Phone: (417) 888-5050.

Show-Me State Games
Show-Me State Games opened a satellite office for Marketing and Media Coordinator Emily Lorenz. Lorenz works out of her Springfield home handling promotions statewide for the Olympic-style sports festival with more than 40 sports for all ages and ability levels. She intends to reach out to civic and sports clubs to increase southwest Missouri’s 8.4 percent participation rate. Lorenz said her presence in Springfield could result in local Show-Me State Games-sponsored events. Originally from St. Louis, Lorenz moved to Springfield when her husband, Kevin, a recent University of Missouri law school graduate, went to work in the Greene County prosecutor’s office. She will work in Columbia during State Games events and the summer games. The Show-Me State Games has been based in Columbia and hosted by the University of Missouri since its inception in 1985. In 2010, more than 70,000 people participated in its events. Phone: (417) 368-0487.[[In-content Ad]]
