The owner of the Original Pancake House in Chesterfield is planning to open the new location by mid-May.
A popular Chesterfield pancake house is set to open at the Colonial Markeplace in about a month. Gordon Manus, owner of Original Pancake House in Chesterfield, told Patch he invested $900,000 to open his second St. Louis area restaurant. "We’re just about done with construction. Furniture is coming in Friday of next week, we'll have our China glass and silver next week," he said. "We haven’t turned on the equipment yet, as long as it all works, we’ll be on track." He said the look will be similar to the Chesterfield spot, known for its rustic look. "There will be timber wood and pine walls, a big fire place and sky lights," he said. "It’s really nice-looking. You walk in, and you’ll be surprised." He said the menu will be the same and so …

Soon; they're starting to hire their employees now.
The new breakfast-and-lunch diner scheduled to move into the former Veritas space along Clarkson Road now has a opening date. The Egg & I is set to open April 29, and managers there are starting to recruit employees for the new restaurant, which would be the second one in the franchise to open in the St. Louis area.

An obsession with chocolate leads to Chesterfield’s newest business: Rick Jordan Chocolatier.
Perhaps you have noticed the sign above the storefront of the former Baskin Robins store on Clayton at Baxter roads: “chocolatier.” The new business is based on 36-year-old Rick Jordan’s obsession: making chocolate candies and pastries. The West County native is a 1992 graduate of Chaminade College Preparatory School. He went to Loyola University of New Orleans where he majored in business. Eight years later he ended up with a computer science degree from the University of Missouri, St. Louis. Jordan got work, but hated desk jobs. He had always had jobs in the food business, so he and his brother opened a pizzeria, but it eventually failed. That led to a job at Villa Farotto’s in Chesterfield Valley. While working there Jordan enrolled in …

Concierge Automotive Services brings the car to the customer.
A new Chesterfield business aims to take the hassle out of car buying. Concierge Automotive Services brings the car to the buyer. Owner Steve Cancila asks his clients what kind of car they want, how much they want to spend and other similar questions. Then, Cancila does the hard part. He pores through several hundred cars available across the country. Once he and the client have settled on one, it goes through an inspection before it’s shipped to Chesterfield. Once here, the car is detailed. Then, it’s handed over to the new owner. “Over the last 20 years, this is how I sold cars to my friends. I’d bring the cars to them to look at, deliver the paperwork after dinner, and we’d sit there at the kitchen table,” Cancila said. He’s been …

Open for only three months, John Lancia's business is growing fast.
The seed from which Lancia's Frozen Yogurt sprouted had been planted far away in Sicily, Italy. As a student at Loyola University's Rome Center, John Lancia would often travel to Sicily, sit in the town square with his cousins and sample the gelato and espresso. His dream wasn't of living in the Italian countryside or swimming in the impossible blue of the Mediterranean, but of opening a coffee shop back in Chesterfield where he was born. Lancia didn't stick entirely to his original coffee shop dream. Although he does offer espresso, cappuccino and coffee, his focus is on fat-free, frozen yogurt. The change in direction was—in his view—a sound business decision. He read an article in Restaurant Business magazine that listed the top 50 …
