Located in the heart of the Midwest, the Kansas City Area offers businesses and residents an exceptional combination of resources. With four-star restaurants, world-class shopping and major-league sports, Kansas Citians enjoy the best of both worlds – big city amenities coupled with small town charm. The Kansas City area is home to many corporate headquartered firms, including Fortune 500 giants Sprint, Hallmark Cards, H&R Block, American Century, and Yellow Corp. Other major employers include DST Systems, Cerner, Ford Motor Co., Utilicorp United, AMC Theaters, Applebee’s International and Garmin International. Inc. magazine named Kansas City one of the best places to own a business, calling the city “an entrepreneur’s dream”, and Entrepreneur ranked the metro area a top U.S. city for small business. Kansas Citians have access to a wide range of arts and entertainment options, including an internationally famous art museum, a highly acclaimed repertory theater, symphony orchestra, lyric opera and state ballet. Visitors can now experience a new Downtown Kansas City with the Kansas City Power & Light District. The $850 million entertainment district - the largest new development project in the Midwest - has reenergized downtown, creating an entertainment, retail and dining hot spot for visitors and conventioneers. It transforms itself from a unique lunch and retail destination by day to an exciting dining and entertainment experience in the evening. No matter what type of cuisine you crave, Kansas City has it – casual or elegant, fast-paced or quiet, traditional or trendy. Some of the country’s best steaks and barbecue are here. The emergence of the stockyards in the 1870s brought Kansas City steak fame, and steaks are still grilled to perfection at restaurants such as the Hereford House, Majestic Steakhouse, Plaza II and others. When most people think of Kansas City, barbecue comes to mind. Smoked slowly over wood, K.C. barbecue is really a combination of techniques and recipes from different regions together by the diverse people who formed this city. The 1920s launched KC barbecue, and it hasn’t slowed down yet. Today, there are more than 100 barbecue establishments.
