Excelsior Springs Welcomes New & Revived Business Ventures

It’s been an eventful few weeks in our community, with businesses blossoming, old spaces reimagining themselves, and fresh ventures setting down roots. Let’s take a look at some of the dynamic shifts and delightful additions to Excelsior Springs’ business landscape.

Daylight Delight: All of Excelsior Springs was buzzing with excitement as Daylight Donuts announced its new location at 119 Crown Hill Rd. Owner Zak Keng, who also operates a location in Paola, KS, was recently spotted discussing layout plans with contractors. Besides delightful donuts, expect some refreshing Boba Tea come early 2024.

Hydroponics in Excelsior: A new growers supply shop has rooted itself at 500 St. Louis Ave downtown. Note: This isn’t a marijuana dispensary but a haven for soil-less plant growth enthusiasts. Hydroponics facilitates faster and healthier plant growth via nutrient-rich solutions.
