Harrisonville Telephone Company Lieferbrau Brewery Cafe on the Abbey

These recently opened businesses have become fast favorites in Randolph and Monroe counties. HTC is proud to have been with them every step of the way.


Lieferbrau Brewery

This summer when the Liefer family opened their brewery in the heart of Red Bud, they never could have imagined how popular it would become. It took two years to restore a 19th century Market Street landmark building while maintaining its historic beauty, but the outcome was well worth the time and investment. Within weeks after opening, word spread quickly about the 12 varieties of delicious German style beer Kris Liefer was brewing, and now customers are coming from far and wide to gather in the beer garden out back or snuggle into cozy booths inside. Kirk and his wife Stephanie, along with Kent and Karen Liefer, Ray and Kara (Liefer) Wagner, and Kris and Danielle Liefer, are enjoying running the hopping business.

Brewing beer and ensuring the best possible customer experience takes time. That’s why they rely on HTC’s dependable Internet and business services to keep everything up and running – smoothly.

“We strive to craft the highest quality beer to share with our community, and we depend on HTC to provide the highest quality Internet and telephone service,” said Kris Liefer. “We may get customers to come in here the first time just to try our beer, but being able to take the time to treat them like friends is what keeps them coming back.”


Café on the Abbey

This past February, Café on the Abbey opened in the newly renovated former Immaculate Conception convent on Main Street in beautiful downtown Columbia. The addition of co-owner and chef Danny Ball has allowed for this bustling and growing business to expand breakfast and lunch offerings and the opening of a sprawling patio in front of the building which has drawn customers who enjoy dining al fresca. Since opening, they have also hosted a number of public and private events including shrimp boils, a pig roast, and an end of summer BBQ. Plus, there are plans to add even more special events in the future.

Although running a café is exciting, their days continue to grow busier as new customers discover their special offerings and ‘regulars’ continue to return for a delightful experience. A smooth business day entails serving a revolving door of customers while also ordering fresh ingredients, creating unique menu offerings, and planning events. It’s a lot to manage, but with a little help from HTC business services, it is all taken care of.

“We take pride in serving customers from all over Monroe County and beyond with a great selection and the highest quality products. We’d like to thank HTC for doing the same.” Danny Ball, Executive Chef, Café on the Abby.
