Prairie Specialties, LLC – a little country store near King City
King City, MO. – A new business has opened near King City, MO, Prairie Specialties, LLC. Tim and Janet Morey are pleased to offer a little country store selling Amish bulk foods, fresh meats and cheeses from their deli counter along with gift items.
Tim and Janet Morey are excited to see their dream become a reality. “This dream has been in the works for about seven years,” Janet said. She continues by saying “it has been worth all of the effort we have put into it.” They have selected the finest products to offer in bulk foods. You will find anything from flour to rice, dry pasta, seasonings and candies and more. They will also have fresh ham, turkey, roast beef and a variety of cheeses. Some of cheese selections have already been a big hit!
When asked what makes their business unique to others in the industry Tim stated, “The farmers have enjoyed having us out here when they are in the field. They can call ahead and we can make up sandwiches to go.” “We’ll have chips and drinks available as well so you can stop by and get lunch,” Tim adds. “There isn’t anywhere within a 25 mile radius where you can get fresh deli meat and cheese sliced to order,” Janet stated.
When asked about the challenges of opening a new business, Janet said, “Construction and remodeling took much longer than we anticipated.” She offers her words of wisdom to other small business owners out there, “Just stick with it. It will probably take longer than you think to get things up and going.”
Looking to the future, Janet said, “We are hoping to expand our current building with the first 5 years and planned for that with our initial construction. We have three children and ten grandchildren and hope to have a family business that carries a great product to our customers. We hope to make a fair profit doing so, and by the grace of God, touch some lives, make some new friends and share this heritage with our family.”
Tim and Janet were grateful to Keli Morris, of Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation for the help she gave in supporting their business creation. “Keli helped us get the actual business set up, assisting us with paperwork we needed to file. She has met with us numerous times and has answered questions that we’ve had along the way.”
Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation is hosting a business celebration to welcome Prairie Specialties, LLC on November 9th, 10 am. Prairie Specialties, LLC is located at 2777 State Route P, King City, MO.
