KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Governor Eric Greitens visited Kansas City and St. Louis on Wednesday to announce several companies' plans to create more than 800 jobs and invest a combined $53.3 million into their operations in Missouri.

“Our mission is more jobs and higher pay and we are getting results,” Greitens said. “ Eight hundred and fifty-six new jobs is 856 lives changed. It's 856 families' lives changed. We are proud to be fighting for Missouri families every day.”

Throughout the day, Greitens met with workers and leaders to walk through expansion plans for Rosnet who plans to create 50 new jobs in Parkville, Spring Venture Group who plans to create 681 new jobs in Kansas City, and Seyer Industries, Inc. who plans to create 125 new jobs in St. Louis.

Founded in 1998, Rosnet was the first web-based enterprise reporting solution for multi-unit restaurant operators.

From an initial offering, the company’s products have grown to include tools that assist restaurant managers with controlling food and labor costs and many additional modules that include daily checklists, log books and inventory capabilities.

Starting and growing in Missouri, Rosnet finds the state’s business-friendly climate and low cost of living attractive to do business. The company will invest more than $3.3 million to expand its facility where it today employs 66 people.

“I cannot imagine doing business in any other state,” said Gene Peters, President and CEO of Rosnet. “I am looking forward to the expansion of our staff and facilities here in Parkville. I believe that Governor Greitens has the best interests of Missouri’s businesses in mind with the economic development policies that he has proposed.”

Spring Venture Group will embark on a $25 million expansion and locate into a larger facility to accommodate its growing workforce.

The company is composed of experts in sales, marketing, technology, and data analytics with a focus on the customer experience. They specialize in the senior health insurance market, serving its population with education on a complex process and offering to comparison shop multiple carriers to find the best fit, for the best price, to meet their needs.

According to company officials, Spring Venture Group chose Kansas City four years ago and now again today because downtown Kansas City offers the company a central location to the Kansas City metro which allows it to recruit from the whole metro area. 

"We couldn't be more excited about growing our company in Kansas City for many years to come,” said Spring Venture Group CEO Chris Giuliani. “Downtown offers a central location in the metro for recruiting, Kansas City offers an incredible talent pool, and the activity going on downtown is very exciting to be a part of."
