January is the beginning of the new year and we have several new businesses in our area to welcome! There are three new eating venues and two massage therapy spas are now open and ready for you to stop in, say hello, and try their services! So while you are exploring Pulaski County please stop in a visit:
Big Ed’s Burgers & Fries
Grant Warren has opened a food truck Big Ed’s Burger’s & Fries. He has worked in local restaurants in the area and his wife’s family has also run restaurants. The idea to open a food truck appealed to Grant and Mary, his wife. They decided to do burgers, fries, chicken tenders, along with homemade brownies!
The Warren’s buy the beef locally from Boucher Farms in Dixon. The Boucher’s raise their cattle locally and do not use growth hormones or any antibiotics, so you are getting “natural beef”!
When setting up the food truck, the Warrens do not have a set location, rather they “pick a neighborhood. Please check their Facebook page to find out their next location.
The Divine Pineapple: Therapeutic and Wellness Center located at 839 VFW Memorial Drive, Suite 4 in Saint Robert. They share the office with Heavenly Hands Day Spa. Corrine Sanchez worked with Whitney of Heavenly Hands Day Spa. Whitney encouraged Corrine to open her own business, so she did! When asked what draws in new clients, she says “the focus on new energy and trying to connect at the level where the client is at.” Going into the spa is “a whole different environment…”
Savanna Timmons recently opened Tiger Nutrition at 320 Ichord Avenue, Suite S; in Waynesville. Her husband, Ty, is currently transitioning out of the military. They are “really big into the gym” and they enjoy eating healthy. When asked why they decided to open a nutritional bar, Savanna said, “people don’t want to make the food or drinks at home, and it is quick and easy to come into Tiger Nutrition.”
They offer protein balls; community bowls; oatmeal bowls; waffles; and nutritional shakes and teas. You may choose fruits; vegetables; yogurt; milk; granola or other yummy items featured on their bar and create your own shake!
Early in December, Spartan Gyros opened at 690 Missouri Avenue, Suite 5 in Saint Robert. Kenny, who is retired military, & Cristal decided to open in Saint Robert due to its proximity near Fort Leonard Wood.
The menu includes gyro wraps; Greek salads with or without gyro meat or chicken; burgers; pizza; and a variety of beverages. The gyro platter features gyros meat, fried potatoes, Greek Salad, pita bread, and tzatziki sauce and is delicious! Other food choices also include generous and delicious portions.
