Posted online

Shuffle Pub LLC
As a first-time business owner, Dan Strickland is bringing music to the stage at Shuffle Pub LLC, a live music and bar venue. He started June 30 at 2550 S. Campbell Ave., Ste. 800, in the Old Town Center. Strickland said the 4,500-square-foot space next door to Bedford Camera and Video was gutted and rebuilt with around $200,000 in startup costs. Shuffle is on a five-year lease with Old Town Center LLC for an undisclosed rate. “The vision was to bring a south-side music venue that catered to live music,” Strickland said. “The stage is the focal point.” Shuffle features live bands Thursday through Saturday, and open mic night on Wednesday. As the name implies, Strickland said Shuffle has a variety of music, from classic rock and country to funk and creole. With seven employees, the venue features a full bar, and patrons are welcome to bring their own food, he said. Strickland said he maintains his day job with information technology company ISG Technology Inc., where he has worked for 25 years.

The Greenhouse on Two Rivers LLC
A Nixa couple looking to venture into the wedding planning industry formed The Greenhouse on Two Rivers LLC. Opening May 27, Greenhouse Two Rivers operates on part of a 20-acre parcel Caleb and Lauren Greenberg own in Highlandville at 1122 Two Rivers Road. Caleb Greenberg said he has experience in the landscaping industry and recently sold his Innovative Landscapes to focus full time on the new business. Lauren is a professional photographer. “We wanted to create something new and fresh out here,” he said of the 7,000-square-foot, all-glass facade wedding and event center. The venue was built by Springfield-based contractor Central Buildings LLC, and startup costs were around $630,000, Greenberg said. He said his wife designed the space, which includes private rooms for the wedding parties, as well as a bar area. Greenhouse Two Rivers also hosts holiday parties and corporate events.
