Story by Jefferson City Magazine Staff | Jun 27, 2018
JC Total Health
3207 W. Truman Blvd., Ste. A
JC Total Health, a self-pay health clinic owned by Dr. Thomas Nittler, specializes in wellness, anti-aging medicine, and hormone replacement. They strive to provide individualized, concierge-level care for every patient. They are not partnered with and don’t accept any insurance coverage but welcome patients to use health savings accounts or a cafeteria plan.
700 E. McCarty St.
Premium Pets, Jefferson City’s only natural pet market and self-wash station, is owned by Brittany Schlup. Schlup uses as many Missouri-made products as she can; their dry food options are never outsourced. They also get their baked treats from local Barnes Bakery and Pupcakery. Brittany wants to make sure that prices are low, which is why they have a loyalty program on bagged food so frequent buyers can save money. They look for vendors that put quality first, giving them a varied assortment of products and setting them apart from larger retailers.
Sweet Smoke BBQ
127 E. High St.
Sweet Smoke BBQ is owned by Lila Backes and John Biggs, who also own Downtown Diner. Brisket, pulled pork, turkey, and other barbecue meats are smoked low and slow daily. They also offer carry-out and catering. Biggs, a former executive chef, is more than happy to expand the menu upon catering request.
620 Madison St.
A Jefferson City staple, Busch’s Florist & Greenhouse underwent a renovation on their greenhouse this past month and their storefront earlier this fall. Built in 1890, the shop functions as a custom potting studio and retail space featuring items like an old rose gold cooler and 1950s Chevy garden truck. Also enjoy their beautiful selection of parlor palms and exotic houseplants.
