Dear ____________,

Have you thought about the benefits of expanding near the St Louis Lambert International airport?

St Ann would be a great location in-between both St Charles County and St Louis City and just across the street from Lambert International Airport.

With our renovation of our mall 96% completed businesses are finding it has been well worth their time and money to invest here. Financial Details listed below.

Starbucks opened with its strongest open on June 15, 2016 today it is still their busiest store in St Louis and Raising Canes now open 4 years still toting its highest volume restaurant in the region, at The Crossings of Northwest, First Watch arrived just over a year ago in May, they too are exceeding their projected sales volumes for our location at the Crossings - which has been renovated to entertain 80% business and 20% retail/food.  Aeneas Williams (Previous Rams Player) placed his church into our old Toys R Us building and Charter Spectrum, the St Louis County Election Board plus other call centers are located right here. All told roughly 3500 employees now in this centralized location with retail and restaurant needs. A Hilton Brand hotel is in negotiations currently. This model promotes success as the business employees tend to supply the retail/food businesses, we have found that our anchor store, Menards-attracts from a 20-mile radius. The traffic counts on our main strip, St Charles Rock Road (Mo180) are up, up, up! We have two great school districts Ritenour and Pattonville (top 20 in the State) both of which have seen an increase in attendance over the last 5 years. In 2020 North St Louis County will open the PowerPlex an amateur multisport center that will bring in a projected 2.4 million visitors a year to play in Youth Sports Tournaments. St Ann’s unique location across from the Airport will come in quite handy as many of these visitors will fill up hotels near the Airport 1st. Our Bandera’s does very well there already, especially during the week with the business travelers. Imagine the possibilities with the added youth sports travelers.

St Ann is a Gem in a Central Location of the region. Located just off Highway 70 at Cypress Rd and just 5 min from the Airport we are literally just 20 minutes from anywhere in the St Louis/St Charles Region. St Ann was built in the early 40’s right after WWII by the Vatterott’s and the Schraeder’ s. In 2018 we celebrated our 70th Anniversary. Our city hosts many events, including in September the St Ann Days and Parade. We find the Parade is a great way to promote FREE Advertising for our Businesses to the residents

  • Our Board of Alderman are innovative and regional thinkers ready to take on your project with an open mind and assist you through the process quickly.

  • With the rebuild of our mall, jobs, places to eat, places to shop are on the rise again within the city and home values have gone up over the last 3 assessments.

  • Our residents have proven over and over that they support their community recently passing a Parks Prop and a Police Prop and a Street Prop to maintain their wonderful services. St Ann takes pride in their community.

____________ would be a great fit back in this area, your new concept is much needed in our region. Menard’s has been here since 2015 and have continued to exceed their expectations.


I sincerely hope you consider our beautiful city for one of your future openings.

Darden Cheddars Letter

Taco John's Business Request

I wanted to share this information with you, to assist you in finding information on what you or maybe your kid could do beyond school to achieve a NICE PAYING job.
As I understand it, an apprentice will start at a good wage, right out of high school.
When you graduate you graduate with 40-45 College Credit Hours, and apparently, they have a program to help you complete your degree if you choose to go that route. Great benefits and in this particular union, they do a variety of work... HERE is where there is a lot of job growth currently as the Baby Boomers are aging out and it is getting more difficult to find people in these fields.
Lack of laborers affects us all...
Have you tried to get something fixed and were told it would take 2 weeks to get someone to you.
This is why - the industry needs more workers.
Think about it, if you are in need.
These jobs once trained pay extremely well!

HIGH HILL, MO. 63350
