Ravenwood, MO – Ryan and Megan Cordell have recently purchased Tuck Point Bar and Grill in Ravenwood, MO.  Tuck Point was founded by Megan’s brother and sister-in-law, Colby and Megan Wiederholt, in 2019.  Megan Cordell stated: “When I found out that they wanted to sell the restaurant, we all wanted to keep it in the family and thought it would be an exciting adventure for my family!”  The restaurant is located at 101 South Main Street, Ravenwood, MO.  “We offer great food and a fun atmosphere for the community says, Ryan.”

Talking about a family adventure, Ryan and Megan are learning everything there is to know about the restaurant business in general!  Ryan is a farmer and seed dealer and Megan’s career has been a nurse since 2009.  They are both excited about expanding into a whole new world and carrying on a well-established business for the community and region.

Megan envisions the business to grow over the next 5 years.  They will make changes to the menu and hours as time goes on.  They also would love to host more events throughout the year.  Megan gave a sneak peek to the future, “we would LOVE to have an outside patio area in the future.”  When asked what advice she would give to other entrepreneurs, Megan suggests “Educate yourself on the business, be open to changes throughout the years to keep your business thriving and  always be prepared for the unexpected.”  

The Cordells learned about Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation from Colby and Megan Wiederholt and were appreciative of the assistance they received from Keli Morris, Facilitator, with helping get the restaurant going by providing helpful information and resources they needed.  

NWMEF will host a business celebration for “Tuck Point Bar and Grill” on Friday, August 13th, 2021, at 11:00 A.M. at 101 South Main Street, Ravenwood, MO 64479. The public is invited to attend.  Plan to come back for Outlaw Creek from 8 – 11 P.M.
