PJ’s Coffee, WOW cafe opening at airport
A combined PJ’s Coffee and WOW Cafe: American Grill and Wingery has opened in the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport.
Ballard Brands formed a partnership with SSP America to provide food services at the airport. The company converted the cafe area located past airport security into a PJ’s, with a full beverage and pastry menu, and a full-service WOW with a “grab-n-go” component for passengers pressed for time.
On the airport’s first floor, Ballard Brands will begin construction this month on a full-service PJ’s Cafe, selling beverages and pastries, along with select alcoholic beverages.
Ballard Brands — started in December 2012 by brothers Paul, Scott and Steve Ballard — includes multiple retail brands, including WOW, PJ’s, New Orleans Roast Coffee & Tea and Ole Saint Kitchen and Tap.

Jetstreame releases retro puzzle game
Baton Rouge-based video game developer Jetstreame has released “Star Shapers,” a retro-style puzzle game.
It is available on Google Play and for download on Amazon. Versions for iOS and Windows 8 will be available in the coming months.
“Star Shapers,” in the vein of popular arcade titles from the late ’80s and early ’90s, combines elements of popular titles like “Asteroids” and “Tetris.” Players use a cannon to fire star fragments into other moving shape pieces to create various stars.
When players connect a specified number of fragments of the same color, they complete the star shapes and increase their score.
Jetstreame is an independent game studio in the Louisiana Technology Park’s Level Up Lab. The company previously released “Crush Hour,” described as “a mayhem-filled puzzle game” along the lines of “Burnout” meets “Bejeweled Blitz.” Players tap cars on the screen to send them careening into each other.
