Salon Knot LLC
Owner Jenni Bybee moved Salon Knot LLC on May 14, less than a month after a tornado severely damaged her shop’s original spot in Rogersville. The hair salon reopened at 424 Redbud St., and Bybee signed a one-year lease with Barry Retchloff, and his wife, Kim, with Tender Heart Animal Clinic LLC. Bybee said she plans to be at the roughly 2,000-square-foot spot long term. Bybee said she remodeled the space with $8,000 through a GoFundMe campaign established to help her recover from the April 30 tornado damage. “To go through that and see how the community rallied around us like that was really incredible,” she said. Additional work, including replacement of the styling chairs, would be done in the future, Bybee said. The salon, which opened in 2015, offers haircuts, coloring, blowouts and extensions.

Flat Creek Republic LLC
Flat Creek Republic LLC, the anchor tenant of the nearly $4 million Wildwood Plaza commercial development in Republic, opened Feb. 5. The restaurant at 772 E. Highway 60 is the third spot for Flat Creek, which also operates along Table Rock Lake and its original location in Cape Fair. The 11,000-square-foot eatery serves a menu of catfish, fried chicken, steaks, crab legs, burgers and sandwiches. It has a seating capacity of 430, including room for around 100 people on the patio, said co-owner Josh Rasmussen. He and Alan Kram, the company’s co-owner and founder, were attracted to Republic’s central location on a major highway, as well as its relationship with the Pinegar family as primary reasons for opening in town. Development of the restaurant was nearly $1.7 million, Rasmussen said, declining to disclose terms of the lease with Melbourne4 LLC. Lease rates are $14-$16 per square foot, according to

Chaney Agency LLC
Weeks after graduating college, Logan Chaney opened the Chaney Agency LLC on Jan. 1 at 117 S. Market Ave. in Bolivar. His office provides auto, home, life, farm and ranch, and business insurance services through American National. Chaney graduated from Missouri State University in December 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture business finance and management. He said he wanted to return to Polk County, where his family runs a farm north of Bolivar, in order to serve other farmers in the insurance industry. He is currently the lone employee for the agency, which cost roughly $5,000 to startup. When time allows, Chaney said he also assists on the 1,000-acre family farm near Humansville that has more than 200 head of cattle.
