Three years ago, Cory and Brittany Flament followed their longtime dream and opened a pizza and sub shop in O'Fallon, Illinois. Now the couple is getting ready to make it two — with Flament Co's the Place American Eatery (418 S. Tucker Boulevard) preparing to open its second location at the corner of Tucker and Spruce.
Cory Flament is a lieutenant on active duty in the U.S. Navy. He became familiar with the location, which is part of the U-Haul building three blocks from Busch Stadium, while he was stationed at the nearby federal building. Currently stationed at Scott Air Force base, he says he and his wife often hear from people who wished they had a location closer to the city."People always said, if you had a restaurant near us, we'd come more often," he says. Now they've got no excuse.
