Construction begins on Tim Hortons/Reliance Bank
The much-anticipated Canadian coffee and donut chain will share the space now under construction at 450 Regency Park Drive with Reliance Bank.
The Tim Hortons is the fifth in the St. Louis area but the first for the metro-east. Ground was broken at the site Tuesday morning.
“We are very pleased to enter the metro-east market with the Tim Hortons brand,” Show Me Hospitality, LLC president Eric Sigurdson said in a statement. “O’Fallon is an exciting city for Tim Hortons, especially on the vibrant Green Mount Road corridor. The location provides for easy access during the morning commute and accommodates our 24-hour drive thru nicely.”
Check out Belleville brewery’s new outdoor space
Back at the end of February, when the area behind 4204 Main Street Brewing Co.’s Belleville location was just dirt and a few trees, owner Todd Kennedy explained his vision for an outdoor area with a pavilion and room for games and bonfires. He said he hoped to have it done in time for the Belleville Ale Fest, which was Saturday.
Indeed, nearly two months and around $140,000 later, he finished the project.
“It was 12, 14 hours a day, seven days a week for two months,” Kennedy said as workers put the finishing touches on the space before the festival. “I just wanted something neat on the west end of Belleville. I’m really pleased.”
The change is drastic. A privacy fence encloses the area off the venue’s patio. There’s a large area for bean bag toss, ample seating around three fire pits, a bocce court and horseshoe pits, a pavilion and even a play set for children. Rope lights tied to trees criss-cross the space.
Kennedy said he envisioned a place where customers would feel like they were anywhere else but the middle of town.
New coffee shop in Shiloh
Developed by Gary and Su Clinton, ninth small business venture together in the past 17 years, WIT stands for ‘Whatever It Takes.’
Recently retired from the military after serving the nation for 27 years, the couple said the recent endeavor has been their dream to build a small business where they can work side-by-side.
When it comes to coffee, Gary and Su have had the opportunity to taste coffees from all over the world as they traveled to places abroad. They discovered great tasting coffee is a result of three ingredients — bean quality, bean grade and experienced roasters.
With this knowledge, Gary and Su searched for the best tasting affordable coffee they could find, and they did; Mississippi Mud, which is locally roasted in St. Louis, Mo.
“We care enough about our coffees to guarantee you will enjoy each cup,” Gary said.
Due to lunch time constraints of many individuals who work on U.S. Scott Air Force Base, Su and Gary decided to incorporate a panini grill within their café.
In an effort to support other local businesses, the Clinton’s have donuts on the menu from O’Fallon’s mainstay Woods Bakery, which are delivered fresh every morning.
