Moody On The Market

Al & Marilyn Mussman are getting close to launching your day with a cup of coffee and ending it with good cup of soup. You may have seen large dumpsters in front of an empty store front in the Courthouse Square in St. Joseph in recent days, and the scurry of demolition crews and contractors. If so, you saw the beginnings of the impending arrival of the new Zoup! Fresh Soup Company coming to the community. The restaurant is going into the space that formerly housed Sunset Tanning which closed up shop there. Last September I introduced to you the news that the Mussmans, owners of Biggby Coffee Company of St. Joseph, had signed on as a franchisee for Zoup! And now they’re underway with their new restaurant just a stone’s throw from their Biggby store. The Mussmans searched for several months for the ideal location for the Zoup! Franchise and eventually found it to be literally next door. Zoup! For those unfamiliar with the concept, is the chain launched 16 years ago in the Detroit suburb of Southfield. Each Zoup! Location offers hundreds of award-winning soups with 12 always-rotating daily varieties, including low-fat, vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free and spicy options -- each served with a hunk of freshly baked bread. The Zoup! Menu also features a distinctive array of made-to-order salads and sandwiches. Customer top picks on the soup line include Chicken Potpie, Lobster Bisque and Vegetarian Split Pea, but everyone will be able to find their own favorite by sampling the soups before ordering... in fact, they encourage it. Mussman’s new Zoup! Fresh Soup Company will be at 119 Main Street in the Courthouse Square and will be opening this summer once the build-out process is complete, staff is hired, and training is done. Al Mussman says, “I love to create places under roofs and in cups where people can connect with one another in a nostalgic, comfortable and warm setting.” After the huge response he got to the news last fall that Zoup! Was on the way, I think he can be guaranteed that Zoup! Will be an instant smash hit with hungry people all across the region. Stay tuned for additional updates on the progress and eventual grand opening of Zoup! In St. Joseph.

Ever since Payless Tire left the building, Himmat Singh has had his eye on the neighboring property in Benton Harbor in hopes of acquiring the space and dramatically expanding his presence just off of the intersection of Napier & M-139. Those hopes just picked up a substantive boost following Singh’s acquisition of the property between his existing liquor store and Slumberland Furniture of Benton Harbor. Singh signed the deal to purchase the former Payless Tire site from developers Gil Logan and Eric Stoub. Logan & Stoub purchased the building last fall in the Berrien County tax foreclosure auction sale under the flag of their Cedar Creek LLC, and Singh has been eager to buy it from them ever since. The deal was recently struck and the sale concluded according to Logan. Singh has already begun the transformation, by removing the Payless signage from the exterior of the property and says the rehabilitation and conversion “will likely take a while,” as he develops plans for expansion of Slosson’s Par-T Mart Liquor Store, located at 812 E. Napier Avenue. Singh’s corporate structure is Dildeepak, Inc. which owns not only the Slosson’s shop but also A&D Liquor Corner at 990 Pipestone Avenue in Benton Harbor. The expansion project for Slosson’s will easily double or triple the size of his existing facility which will afford him the opportunity to introduce new product lines and a limited selection of grocery items in the future. Slosson’s has been a staple in the Fairplain neighborhood for several decades. The Slosson name dates back to when Frank Slosson owned and operated a liquor store at E. Main & Paw Paw in downtown Benton Harbor back in the 50’s. In fact, Frank was shot in an attempted hold up on January 14, 1951 and his 27-year old son Charlie was killed trying to defend him and the store. Walter Anderson from New York was charged with the murder of Slosson, a decorated WWII veteran who had returned home to Benton Harbor after the fall of Hitler. The younger Slosson, a member of the 79th Infantry Division, survived the storming of the beach at Normandy on D-Day only to return home and be gunned down in cold blood by a would-be robber. It’s unclear when Singh purchased the store from the Slosson family who had moved it to the present location from downtown Benton Harbor along the way. Stay tuned for updates on the expansion of Slosson’s, now getting underway.

How do you consistently earn your way onto Fortune Magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For?” Well...St. Joe’s Kenley Penner and his colleagues might suggest you keep your work place, “relatively jerk-free!” How cool is that? A “No Jerk Zone!” Mr. Penner is a Certified Public Accountant and Partner with the accounting firm of Plante Moran, which is based in Southfield, but has had a presence in Michigan’s Great Southwest for decades. His team in the Edgewater neighborhood on the north side of the St. Joe River has long espoused the “We’re all in this together philosophy” that permeates the Plante Moran family despite the fact that they are one of the nation’s largest certified public accounting and business advocacy firms going. To have such a “one-firm” culture in spite of a work force of more than 2,000 professionals spread across 23 offices in Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio (not to mention their international offices in Shanghai, China; Monterrey, Mexico; and Mumbai, India) is somewhat miraculous. Penner points with considerable pride to Plante Moran’s selection this month for the 17th consecutive year to the Best Companies list at Fortune. He’s especially delighted that his crew is consistently rated the highest among all Accounting & Consulting firms, and will sometimes turn up as the highest rated Michigan employer on the list, too. This year, Plante Moran checks in at #29 on the Fortune list, as detailed in the March 15th issue of the magazine. It’s not an easy rank to attain, inasmuch as staff surveys only play a part in the formula along with an extensive audit by a national institute. At the corporate level, Gordon Krater is a managing partner with Plante Moran. He says, “It’s no coincidence that for the last 17 years the firm has experienced growth and success while remaining a mainstay on the Fortune list.” He adds, “The firm’s accomplishments are borne of a culture instilled decades ago by its co-founder Frank Moran.” Like Penner, Krater is proud of Plante Moran’s “culture of mutual respect, trust, open communication and transparency” because it routinely results in lower staff turnover and deeper, more strategic relationships between staff and clients.” Plante Moran’s St. Joseph offices are located in Suite 120 at 511 Renaissance Drive in the city’s Edgewater District. Plante Moran is 90-years old and growing stronger by the day.

Even as the magic of another Magical Ice Carving Festival was fading from the scene last month, Jennifer Fillwock was crafting her own magical space along State Street in downtown St. Joseph and now she and her crew are working their brand of magic on customers new and old from their beautiful new salon and lounge in the central business district. She says it is absolutely, “a dream come true.” Fillwock has been styling hair for 25 years, but now for the first time she is in total command of her own destiny as owner and operator of the brand new Statements Style Lounge at 204 State Street in St. Joe. Joining her are stylists Shana Schadler and Liz Eberhart, and new to the team is Sheri Leitz. Jennifer comes from a lengthy stint with the crew at Alley Cuts, and she dearly loves working in the downtown district. However, she always wanted to open her own salon and last fall the timing proved fortuitous when the space became available when an Oriental gift shop ceased operations at that site. She said the excitement of working downtown is second to none and she loves the busy pace of life in the district. Statements Style Lounge is an Aveda products salon, and walk-ins are not only welcomed, they are encouraged. Jennifer says she launched the makeover of the colorful space in October and finally opened for business in mid-February on the heels of the Magical Ice Carving Festival downtown. The lounge is open Monday through Saturday beginning at 9am and operates until the last client is successfully cared for each day. If you’d like to make an appointment, you can reach Statements at 269-588-3180. The lounge is on the north end of State Street directly across from the Golden Brown Bakery in downtown St. Joseph.

Recently entrepreneur Kraig Pike of Bridgman asked the rhetorical question: “Who breaks ground March 5th with snow on the ground?” He immediately supplied the two-letter, one-word response: “ME!” With that announcement, Pike has launched the forthcoming Great Lakes Business Park, slated for opening this spring. Pike who is perhaps better known for his role as Proprietor and Funeral Director of Pike Funeral Home in Bridgman, has acquired the land that once housed Mead Painting until fire claimed the building. He’s begun the process of erecting a 9-unit business park at the corner of W. John Beers Road and Lincoln Avenue just outside Stevensville. Pike is targeting small business startups, professionals, distributors, contractors and the like who can benefit from a first-class Business Park at the center of everything. Featuring paved parking, security lighting, 24-hour access, climate-controlled office space and more, the new business park is designed to be an affordable rental solution for multitenant units and flexible use space. Custom units can range from 950 square feet to 1325 square feet as follows: 20 x 48 -- 950 square feet…24 x 48 -- 1,150 square feet…28 x 48 -- 1,325 square feet. All have office options with 12 to 14-foot garage style doors. There are also bathroom options, heat options, and even loft options with ceiling heights ranging from 14 to 16-feet. If you find your business looking for additional space, or a better location, or even if you’re launching a new business venture, Pike’s options are open to discussion. Pike is hoping to brand it as the perfect cost-effective solution for small businesses of all stripes, or even to supplant situations where a home office has been outgrown. He’s hopeful that business people will find the Great Lakes Business Park to be an economical, professional business office option to meet with clients. The new center is now under construction following last week’s ground-breaking. For leasing information, contact Kraig Pike at 269-932-4780.

Seemingly every second year or so, organizers of the highly successful Bids for Barks event have been forced to move to ever larger quarters due to the incredible demand for tickets. That’s why I’ve been asked to alert you to the rapidly dwindling access opportunity you have for the 7th Annual Bids for Barks from the Humane Society of Southwestern Michigan. The event has moved several times to larger venues and this year in an attempt to avoid running out of space once again organizers of the big auction extravaganza are capping ticket sales at 400 total. That means that effective right now, 100 tickets or less are still available. The event is coming up on Saturday, May 16th at The St. Joe Kickers Club between St. Joseph and Berrien Springs. This year for the first time the event will feature a sitdown dinner, rather than a buffet style meal, and all tickets are for reserved seating. Round up some friends to join you for the big party and grab a table for 6 or a table for 8. Fewer than 10 tables for eight remain available and only about 5 tables for six, so the time to act is very much at hand. The 7th Annual Bids for Barks will feature a Silent Auction from 5 until 7:30pm and the Live Auction starts at 8pm. A cash bar is available and live entertainment will be offered, as has become tradition. Tickets are just $45 each or a private table for eight can be purchased for $350.00. Click the link below for ticket ordering or you can call Lynn at 269-921-6743. You can also send an email to BidsforBarks@gmail.com. The Humane Society of SW Michigan is the only no kill shelter in the area, and proceeds from Bids for Barks will help the capital campaign for a new shelter on M-139 alongside the Concord Ridge Equestrian Center in Royalton Township. Here’s the link for tickets: http://www.HumaneSocietySWM.org.
