At that same time Morris hired a young man, Ron Junge. As Junge worked his way up in the company, he became more interested in fine wines and coaxed Mr. Morris to expand Brown Derby’s inventory. Ron Junge, eventually married John A.’s daughter, Jo Ann, and created what is now known as the Brown Derby Wine Center & Marketplace which has been bringing fine wines to the community for several decades. Ron was a pioneer with insight and knowledge; when he began there were no wine retailers in Springfield and very few throughout the country carrying any wine at all. Ron would travel to visit unknown wineries and search out yet-to-be famous wineries in order to introduce exciting new wines to the Springfield community and beyond. He was very successful in his attempts, often times being the only retailer between the coasts to represent certain wineries, many of which have since become extremely popular. Ron’s pursuit of the finest wines brought the Brown Derby Wine Center both national and international recognition for its outstanding selection. In 1994, the Brown Derby Wine Center moved to its current location of 2023 S. Glenstone, where Ron’s wife Jo Ann joined the team. Jo Ann added a cheese counter, artisanal foods, and home décor to broaden the scope of retail and appeal to an ever expanding base of customers.
