The Dapper Doughnut
A Las Vegas-based franchise that sells miniature, made-to-order doughnuts entered Nixa on July 9 through franchisee Chris Holtmeyer. The store opened at 107 W. Aldersgate Drive, Ste. 11, in Main Street Plaza. Holtmeyer, who also works as manager of fleet maintenance at Prime Inc., signed a five-year lease with Nixa Plaza LLC for an undisclosed rate. Startup costs, including a $35,000 franchise fee, were about $250,000, he said. The 1,200-square-foot shop is the first in southwest Missouri and second in the state, according to the franchise website. Holtmeyer said he owns the franchise rights in Nixa, Ozark and Springfield, but he has no current plans for additional shops. The mini-doughnuts are sold in boxes of six, 12, 24 and 48, starting at $4 a box. Among the 18 flavors are cinnamon sugar and blueberry lemon, and coffees, espressos and milkshakes also are on the menu.

Prime Capital Investment Advisors of Springfield
Financial adviser Terry Conner left Edelman Financial Engines to open Prime Capital Investment Advisors of Springfield on June 12. Conner said his four-employee office, at 1835 E. Republic Road, Ste. 201, is now an independent financial advisory with back-office support from Overland Park, Kansas-based Prime Capital Investment Advisors LLC. He said Prime Capital receives an undisclosed fee for its services. While working under Edelman Financial for nearly three years, Conner said his firm oversaw roughly $200 million in investments, including 401(k) plans. The number should be approximately the same at PCIA, he added. Conner said Edelman Financial continues to hold the lease but has closed its office on the bottom floor of the building he owns on Republic Road.

The Big Biscuit
After making its Springfield debut May 7, Overland Park, Kansas-based restaurant chain The Big Biscuit opened its second eatery in town July 8. The Big Biscuit at 3620 S. Campbell Ave., in Kickapoo Corners, is the 16th in the chain, with most of the others in the greater Kansas City area, said Jason Paetzold, a partner in the company and a 1997 Southwest Baptist University graduate. Other partners are Jay Carpenter and father-and-son David and Chad Offerdahl. The 4,800-square-foot restaurant, which serves a southern-inspired menu for breakfast and lunch, employs 50, led by General Manager Jason Ontiveros. Most menu items are priced $6-$9, Paetzold said, and the new spot has a 25-seat private meeting room. Startup costs and lease terms were not disclosed, but a building permit on file with the city lists a declared valuation of $140,000 for infill work. The first Big Biscuit in Springfield opened at 2920 S. Glenstone Ave.
