President | CEO Sr. Vice President Executive Assistant Membership Representative Communications Coordinator

As a person who feels strongly about staying busy after leaving the office for the day, I often think about how other businesspeople spend their free time. We can’t always make our other interests fit into the daily job description. As soon as I can put out a magazine that serenades you, I’ll have reached my ultimate goal to combine my passions for editing magazines and singing soulful music. I bring up this question of what business professionals do outside of the workplace because in this fall/winter edition of Shawnee Magazine, we’ve directed our attention to individuals, and not the companies for which they work. We find out how three area professionals manage their time effectively enough to have entirely different lives outside of their day jobs. Whether it’s seeking balance in the body/mind, making waves in philanthropic efforts or letting loose on late nights with other local musicians, they all find fulfillment both in and out of the office. We also discover how Shawnee resident Alexis Railsback created a strategy that helped her earn the Miss Kansas USA crown—because it’s not something anyone can snatch up. Pageant preparation is a full-time job for anyone serious about success. Be sure to dig into the resources provided by the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce in the Business Resource Guide, which details events, programs and support systems for area businesses. The chamber has much success and growth to celebrate, thanks to those partner businesses. There are many people to get to know in this issue, and we’re confident they will bring you closer to understanding the heart of business in Shawnee. We hope you enjoy!

Red, White and Coffee Brew Army veteran Andrew Thornton opens Downtown Coffee House to serve coffee to those who have served the country


local profiles

At the cusp of dawn, while the birds are still tucked into the warmth of their feathers and the sun has yet to peak from the eastern horizon, the tired, red-eyed Army veteran Andrew Thornton stirs from his bed. Like

many early risers, there’s only one thing needed to battle the oncoming day—coffee, and lots of it. But for entrepreneur Thornton, the smell of coffee brewing means business. The 25-year-old, who once served his country in Afghanistan, is now providing veterans and the community of Shawnee with a different type of service: a delicious, affordable cup of coffee for less than $2 at Downtown Coffee House. From the grounds up

The idea to open a coffeehouse began brewing the morning after Christmas in 2014 when Thornton joined his family around the kitchen table and shared a pot of coffee and conversation. It reminded him of the camaraderie he experienced in his military days where he bonded with people from all walks of life. Once Thornton saw the available space in the lobby of Dodge City Beef building, he seized the opportunity to create Downtown Coffee House. Ultimately, Thornton wanted to create a gathering place for veterans and the community. A place with casual, open-minded discussion for veterans to relax and feel welcomed while enjoying a quality cup of coffee.

“When someone comes in, and I say, ‘how’s your day,’ and they say ‘good,’ I say, ‘we’ll see if we can’t make it better,’” Thorton says. “That’s my mission.” And no mission is complete without having comrades by his side. Thornton and his three active partners—Joseph Lusby, Travis Gunn and Daniel Hullman—take pride in hosting a non-alcoholic environment for veterans, family and friends. In doing so, they hope the space can serve as bridge between those who have served in the past and present, as well as connect with neighbors of the community.

Laurie, a family friend of Andrew Thornton’s, knows how much the military has helped shape Thornton into the successful man he is today. “I am so very proud of this young man,” Laurie says. “And I want to help him succeed in any way I can.”

Laurie often shows his appreciation for Thornton and the local community by leaving a paid tab for other customers to enjoy a free cup of coffee. “In Shawnee, we take care of our own.” Try the Original Rub or Happy Heat Habanero Rub roasted almonds. Pair them with a piping cup of the Highlander Grog, a medium-light roast with a blend of vanilla, caramel and whiskey.

Welcome home

What better way to bring the community together than from the comfort of home? Currently Downtown Coffee House’s interior is a snapshot of your neighbor’s living room. It’s spacious with large chairs, a television and plenty of room to entertain family and friends. Although the rich, aromatic scent of coffee brewing lures the customer inside, it’s the sense of small-town warmth with a blend of patriotism that invites the customers to stay. The military

presence threads throughout the café with photos of men and women who are currently serving in the Armed Forces or have served in the past. Thornton encourages the public to add to their growing collection and send name tags, patches and photos of their own family and friends. For the community, the business currently features an expanding library with a takea-book, leave-a-book policy, as well as an art gallery featuring local artists such as Carol

Rubsam, who also happens to be Thornton’s grandmother. In the future, Thornton hopes to hold more community-oriented events such as car and motorcycle shows, gallery showings, art classes, live music and charity events for veterans. On the grind

Downtown Coffee House offers 13 to 18 whole bean or ground coffee varieties, available for purchase for the customer to enjoy at home. Every day the


business brews 10 varieties in addition to the “cup of the day” flavor. The most popular brand is the Highlander Grog, a mediumlight roast with a blend of vanilla, caramel and whiskey. With the community’s love and support, the business has quickly blossomed with new opportunities. Recently, they have started delivery service to homes and offices. The Coffee House has also made its debut on Olathe Hy-Vee shelves with both ground and whole bean options for purchase. The company is also considering expanding locations to Leavenworth, Topeka and Lawrence.

The growth and unexpected popularity has made Thornton hopeful for the future of Downtown Coffee House as well as for members of its community. In time, Thornton hopes to create a network of local businesses selling quality products from all over Shawnee. Not only will the network support local businesses and community, but it will ultimately give back to charities that focus on helping out veterans. Thornton says, “No matter how big we grow, for as long as I’m in charge, I am going to ensure that we are family-oriented, educationoriented, and community-oriented.”

Owner Andrew Thornton accepts name tags, patches and photos of community members (and their families) who have served in the Armed Forces to display in the coffee shop.

How Alexis Railsback—a longtime Shawnee resident—won Miss Kansas USA on here first try


Shawnee made the national stage this year, as Miss Kansas USA 2015 Alexis Railsback entered the Miss USA pageant as the representative of Kansas and longtime Shawnee resident. “Growing up in Shawnee has been a positive experience,” Alexis says. “I love the atmosphere, and the city has kept me down to earth.” Her parents, John and Robin Railsback, have seen over the years how this Kansas City suburb has played an important role in the life of their daughter. “Shawnee is a good place to live with great schools,” John says. “Alexis has developed a strong work ethic and goals.” Alexis didn’t grow up competing in pageants. After she became a Top 15 semifinalist in Miss Kansas Teen USA 2014, and 4th runner-up to Miss Kansas Teen USA 2013, she began working toward the November 2014 competition for the Miss Kansas USA title. Seeing as Alexis won the title on her first attempt, it seems she may know a thing or two about the business of beauty. QUICK BIO Full name: Alexis Selena Railsback Age: 19 (the youngest Miss USA 2015 contestant) Education: Shawnee Mission Northwest High School, Class of 2014. Freshman at Johnson County Community College Eat ULTRA clean She kept up a high-protein, low-carb diet, with natural, whole foods. • Stayed away from anything containing sugar, which meant giving up fruit. • Her carbs came from fibrous vegetables, brown rice and whole grains. • Two months before the pageant, she cut out dairy. • Ate six small meals a day every two to three hours, all containing protein.

Appear flawless Top 3 beauty tips … 1) Drink lots of water! It’s great for your skin and keeps you hydrated. 2) Wear sunscreen and SPF on your face every day. It protects your skin and will prevent future signs of aging. 3) Use a great primer and setting spray to keep your makeup looking flawless all day. Get ready for obvious questions Railsback is another victim of the ever-original jokes tying Kansas to The Wizard of Oz. “I get questions all the time,” she laughed. “I’ve been asked if Kansas is really like it was in the movie. People want to know if we really have tornadoes, and if I have a dog like Toto.”

Rep Kansas “I want people to know how friendly and welcoming we are in the Midwest.” Dream big Her long-term plans include pursuing a degree in business administration from a four-year university, and then attending cosmetology school. Railsback envisions a career as a professional makeup artist for high profile clients. Combining her business degree with a formal education in makeup application, she hopes to one day create her own line of skin care products and cosmetics. Give back She gets excited talking about the volunteer work she began three years ago in high school. Railsback remains involved with the Latinos of Tomorrow program at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City. During the holidays she also volunteers for the Salvation Army. Make it your job “I prepared for Miss USA every day for six to seven months, since the day I was crowned,” Railsback says. “If you’re really serious about being Miss USA and doing well, it’s not something that you can just ‘practice’ once a week.” That preparation included meeting with various pageant coaches—for walking and interviewing guidance—several times a week, arranging and being fitted for the multiple daily wardrobe changes (at least two weeks worth of clothing), and keeping up with current events and social media. “It’s an intense process, on top of making appearances and traveling as a state titleholder every week,” Railsback says. Above all, don’t give up “I’ve learned to never give up on my dreams,” she says. “If people say you can’t do something, you just have to work hard to achieve it. If things don’t work out as you planned, I know everything happens for a reason.”

sunflowerpub.com shawnee magazine

Get physical Alexis worked out twice a day for about three hours total: • One hour of cardio in the morning • Later she did a combination of Pilates and heavy weight lifting, focusing on a different body part every day • She would conclude the workout with another hour of cardio. “I care about living healthy and working out, and I want to inspire others to do the same thing.”

Her response … “I would say that not all stereotypes of Kansas are true and that it is just like any other state. We have the city where I live, which has lots of excitement and fun things to do, and then we also have the countryside and smaller towns.”

La Vie Est Belle,

Even for Business Travelers Life is beautiful in Paris, no matter how brief your stay


escape “Paris is always a good idea.” —Audrey Hepburn After days spent sparring in the boardroom, the weary business traveler should relax and let Paris unfold. Consuming everything at once will only produce heartburn. Even with only a weekend to explore, the humblest lane to the grandest boulevard promises to reveal Paris’ treasures. Infatuation at every turn In the “City of Light,” it’s easy to visit some of the most iconic structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre and Notre-Dame await; each is wondrous, yours to be explored and photographed. So grab your walking shoes or take fast, affordable and far-reaching public transportation. A camera and a hearty café au lait aren’t a bad idea either. Friday evening—Gustave Eiffel’s masterpiece With business behind you, start at the biggest sparkling landmark of all: la tour Eiffel. Yes, it screams, “Here’s Paris,” but the staggering metal-laced structure, built at the end of the 19th century, continues to enthrall more than 7 million visitors annually. If climbing the 704 steps seems daunting, take the lift 984 feet to the top. Stay until dark when the “Iron Lady” is illuminated with thousands of shimmering, golden lights. Cap off the evening at the top with a champagne toast at the bar, then linger to soak in spectacular views of the city.

Saturday afternoon Following lunch at a cafe in the Tuileries or along the Champs-élysées, consider a refreshing ride down the Seine, which bisects the city. Excursion boats known as Bateaux Mouches troll up and down the Seine for 90-minute river tours. These vessels provide clear views and narration for the Left and Right Banks’ most memorable monuments. One of the most iconic views is the NotreDame Cathedral, situated on an island in the heart of Paris called Ile de la Cité. The Cathedral’s commanding presence is most beautiful at sunset, when the flying buttresses, the South Rose Window and the gargoyles accentuate this masterpiece of French Gothic architecture. Saturday evening In a city known for its gastronomy, dinner in Paris never begins before 7 p.m. There’s no shortage of brasseries, bistros or cafes around every corner serving delicious food promptly. If you’re splurging, however, fine restaurants complete with astronomical prices and multiple courses abound. Most establishments stay open late. As an alternative to a lengthy meal, eat casually then plan on taking in the world renowned Paris National Opera at the 1875 Palais Garnier, a bold, opulent monument recognized as one of the most impressive sites in Paris. Tours are available, but experiencing a performance will be unforgettable. Sunday morning Before departing, complete the tour with a last look at the city from a towering vantage point. Head north to the legendary hilltop district of Montmartre, cited as the birthplace of the Impressionist movement. Historically one of Paris’ bohemian hangouts, Montmartre is home to cabarets, cafes and artists. Leave time to wander the maze of cobbled streets and see the Moulin Rouge, Moulin de la Galette and Place du Tertre. Soak up sweeping views of the city from Basilique du Sacré Coeur for a fitting end to your weekend.

sunflowerpub.com shawnee magazine

Saturday morning Other women besides the Iron Lady vie for attention at the Musée du Louvre, one of the largest and arguably the most important art museum in the world. Count the Mona Lisa, the Three Graces and the Venus de Milo among the vast trove of 35,000 pieces of art contained in the former palace of Louis XIV. To avoid the lines, start by 9 a.m., then plan on spending two to three hours browsing the artifacts dating from prehistoric times to the 19th century. Outside the entrance, take a moment to admire I. M. Pei’s glass pyramid before crossing the street directly into the magnificent Jardin des Tuileries, a public park punctuated with ponds,

statues and fountains. Stroll down the wide garden path on your way to the nearby Arc de Triomphe.

Local young business professionals share why they’re proud to live in Shawnee

Story by Katy Schamberger

Photography by Kevin Anderson


The Kansas City metropolitan area includes 14 counties in Missouri and Kansas, meaning residents have no shortage of opportunities when it comes to finding the perfect place to live. For many people, that place is Shawnee. We sat down with three young professionals to find out more about why they chose Shawnee—and why, after several years, they’re planning to stay.

Location, location, location When Whitney Yadich first moved to Shawnee, she had a job in Overland Park and was excited to see how quick and easy that made her commute. “I think people really underestimate Shawnee’s access to everything,” says Yadrich, who has lived in Shawnee with her husband, Jake, for six years. “You’re less than 15 minutes from everywhere you probably need to be. And having groceries, medical care, a gym and a variety of other services and amenities within walking distance from our house is so nice. Shawnee is convenient for all things life.” Nathan Graves, a user experience designer at DSI, has lived in Shawnee with his wife, Pandia, and their two children for nearly four years and

agrees that the proximity to so many businesses and services is ideal—and it’s something he didn’t expect. “I wasn’t banking on having a home so close to so many things I do,” Graves says. “We’re close to the grocery store and the gas station, and I regularly run into people I know, like you typically see in the movies. In that way, Shawnee has a small-town feel.” Iowa native Michelle Schmidt, an administrative assistant at Waddell & Reed, has lived in Kansas City for six years, two of those years in Shawnee. Her home’s proximity to area businesses makes errand runs that much simpler. “It’s easy to get to the grocery store, the pharmacy, the bank—everything is a couple minutes from our house,” Schmidt says. And if you want to venture outside of Shawnee, she adds, that’s not a problem. Shawnee is ideal because it’s close to the interstate, so you’re just a short drive away from downtown, the Plaza, Westport and Waldo, to name a few neighborhoods. “It’s a suburb that’s close to everything,” she says.

2. Get ready every morning. I really only wear PJs or sweats on Fridays (casual Friday!). Doing my hair and makeup and putting on jeans and a t-shirt tells my brain that it’s time to make a living. 3. Switch up your location. I’ll go to Starbucks or Scooter’s, or meet up with friends to co-work for an afternoon. I work on the deck whenever it’s nice to snag some Vitamin D. Even spending a few hours at the kitchen table or on the couch keeps it fresh.

Three top tips for successfully working out of office: 1. Keep a normal schedule. Operate within business hours as much as possible, and make it clear to your friends and family that, even though you work at home, you’re still at work and they need to respect that boundary. Shut the door to your office when you’re not working. It’s the shortest commute, but still an important one.

Nathan GRAVES Job title and business: User Experience Designer, DSI Top three tips for achieving a good work life and family balance: 1. Discipline and habit mean a lot. I love the “Do Not Disturb” mode on my phone. It keeps my nights quiet, technologically speaking. 2. Redefine clean. Life is messy, and I’m spending more time making memories with my family and a little less time keeping everything spotless and put away. 3. Take time to transition. The car ride home is vital. It gives me time to let go of work and prepare to be Husband and Daddy at home without distraction.

Strong community

Earlier this year, Yadrich began working for 10up, a remote web design, development and content management agency where she’s now a senior project manager and team lead. As a result, she’s working from home full-time, and finds working in nearby places helps her recharge and stay focused when she needs a change of scenery. “I like to go to Scooter’s a lot,” Yadrich says. “Everyone’s so nice, and it’s dog-friendly,” an important selling point for Yadrich, whose family includes Lita, a miniature pinscher, and Sarge, a Doberman. The variety of businesses in Shawnee is another strong selling point, Yadrich says. You can frequently find her at 24 Hour Fitness with her husband; she spends a lot of time at Ace Hardware gathering supplies for her DIY home and lighting projects; and she calls the addition of Chipotle a few years ago “a game changer.” A favorite date-night spot includes PowerPlay entertainment center, and she admits to ordering plenty of takeout from Pine and Bamboo Garden, which Yadrich says has “the best Chinese food in the world.” The Graves family is happy to support local businesses in any way they can and enjoy making special trips to Aunt Jean’s Ice Cream for its tasty treats. As Graves puts it, “everyone in Shawnee knows Aunt Jean’s!” The fact that the family’s first Shawnee home was so close to Shawnee Mission Park ended up playing a significant role in a momentous lifestyle change. “The fact that the park was right there gave me a chance to explore fitness and become a healthier husband and father,” says Graves, who has lost more than 100 pounds. “I probably wouldn’t be where I am without the amazing access to that park.” Like Graves, Schmidt enjoys the active lifestyle Shawnee inspires and says that her proximity to Shawnee Mission Beach Volleyball is a big plus. And it’s not her only option to stay fit. “There’s a really nice trail down the street, the Turkey Creek Streamway Trail,” she says. “It’s great for walking, running and biking and is a beautiful area. We love to spend time there.”

Palpable pride There’s a big difference between simply living somewhere and making it your home, and for Schmidt, Graves and Yadrich, Shawnee has become that home. For Graves, it’s about more than the location and the businesses—it’s the collective history that he and his family have built in the area, and how Shawnee has become an integral part of their lives. “My wife, Pandia, took dance at Nalia’s Studio of Dance when she was a kid, then she taught there, and now our son takes acrobatics at the same place,” he says. “I went to high school in Shawnee, and that’s where I met Pandia. In so many facets, Shawnee is a focal point of our life together, and I don’t see a reason to leave.” For all three Shawnee residents, the community represents not just where they live but also what’s important to them—and when compared to other options throughout the Kansas City metro, well, there’s not much contest. “Show me another suburb that has this much variety,” Yadrich says. “You can go as rural or urban as you want in Shawnee.” Graves adds, “It’s just fun and it’s safe. This is a great place to raise kids and be confident that they’ll have wonderful memories of their childhood in Shawnee.”

Michelle Schmidt enjoys the active lifestyle her community encourages, noting Shawnee Mission Beach Volleyball as a favorite spot in town.

Pursuits Three Shawnee residents find fulfillment, enrichment outside of the ‘day job’ Story by Katy Schamberger | Photography by Emily Steele

Cara McDonald

Creator, Balance in the ’Burbs

22 Find Your Own Balance

When Cara McDonald embarked on her journey to become a certified yoga instructor, she tapped into her love of writing to start a blog. In May of 2014, Balance in the ’Burbs was born—the name a nod to her home in the Kansas City suburb of Shawnee. As a full-time senior copywriter for digital marketing agency DEG, McDonald is no stranger to leveraging the power of words. Although she initially had qualms about sharing her journey, she has since created a personal yoga brand built on strength and honesty, especially when it comes to sharing her own struggles. “When I was suffering from my eating disorder, the sickness flooded my thoughts,” she wrote in “Why You Really Hate Your Thighs,” published May 4, 2015. “All I ever thought about was food and exercise and being skinny. I honestly thought the whole reason I was in this mess was because I wanted desperately to be thin. But through therapy I learned that my eating disorder was tied to trauma I hadn’t dealt with. It was a distraction and a way for me to have some sort of control in my life.” In the past year of blogging, McDonald says she’s become more honest as she has gotten more comfortable. “A lot of women who have eating disorders are reaching out for help,” she says. “They say ‘thank you’ and know they’re not alone. They’ve encouraged me to be honest. There are a lot of people struggling and we need to help these people not feel so alone.” To encourage people to explore the possibilities of yoga, McDonald shares not only blog posts but also short practice videos, tips and other inspiration on her Facebook and Instagram accounts. After completing an intensive two-week teacher training program—along with fulfilling studentteaching requirements and participating in other training opportunities—McDonald started teaching vinyasa-style yoga (yoga flow) at 24 Hour Fitness in Shawnee, as well as classes at the Merriam Community Center, all of which celebrate a dual focus. More recently, she began teaching at new CorePower Yoga studio on the Country Club Plaza. “I try to balance the physical aspects—strengthening and stretching—with inner work like body image, appreciating and accepting where you are today and not judging yourself if you can’t get in this pose,” she says. Learning to love yourself and your abilities is a big part of what McDonald not only preaches, but also practices. “Yoga teaches patience,” she says. “It takes a long time to do the poses.” Case in point? The handstand, which McDonald practices every day. McDonald originally thought she might take Balance in the ’Burbs full-time, but says now she has a greater appreciation for the part-time pursuit. “It’s my labor of love, and if I do it full-time I might lose some of that,” she says. “I’ve learned a lot about who I am and exactly what I want.”

They say there’s strength in numbers. And when you’re trying to help a country that’s the hardest hit in the world by HIV/ AIDS, it takes an army of people, organizations and resources to help the more than 6.1 million people living with HIV. Jennifer Agee, a full-time licensed clinical professional counselor in Overland Park, experienced the depth of South Africa’s need firsthand when she moved to Gonubie in 2009 and spent three and a half years living there as a missionary. When she returned, her drive to help was stronger than ever. “We still had a heart for the people and so many relationships that we wanted to continue to educate, empower and equip the people that we had been working with,” Agee says. From those relationships, Themba was born as a ministry outreach of HuntSA, a Christian ministry that provides mission work and donates meat that the hunters acquire to South African people in need. HuntSA needed help with resource coordination and logistics, Agee says. Pronounced “Tem-ba,”—the Xhosa and Zula word for “hope, promise and trust”—the organization’s guiding purpose is “to help connect the needs and the resources,” Agee says, which can be complex, given that resources like food, medical supplies and volunteers have the highest availability in the U.S. Much of Themba’s work centers on Jehovah Jireh Haven, a children’s home in the Eastern Cape town of Alexandria that serves an average of 100 children daily. Themba helps organize sponsors that provide the home with food, education and clothing. Themba also works in the Transkei, which used to be the designated area for black South Africans during apartheid and is the most underdeveloped area of the entire country, Agee says. The organization has partnered with a man who goes into the Transkei twice a year and does HIV/AIDS outreach in the rural villages. “Because he speaks the language and is South African, it’s less intimidating than having an American do all the talking,” Agee says. “We’ll make sure he has the funding to get there, to have a team with him when they do the education and also provide other resources.” Despite being on the other side of the globe, Agee maintains active involvement in South Africa through Themba. While she lived there, she formed bonds with the mothers of the community, whom she affectionately calls “the mamas.” She stays in touch with them through monthly Skype calls. Agee is eager to return to South Africa to reunite with the place that taught her family a significant lesson in the true meaning of wealth. The U.S. may be economically wealthy, Agee says, but it’s lacking in other areas. “When you’re in the village or at the children’s home, you can see that they’re connected, they’re communal and they don’t struggle with the loneliness,” she says. “They’re rich in different ways.”

Frederick

Singer/songwriter, Rev Gusto

sunflowerpub.com shawnee magazine

jerry

By day, Jerry Frederick works as a dishwasher at Whole Foods. By night, however, you can typically find him near a microphone, practicing or performing with Rev Gusto, the five-piece band he co-founded five years ago with his younger brother. The bandmates spend much of their time practicing at what they call “the band house,” which is much more than a mere residence for a couple of the members, Frederick says. They also perform at the house, making it the site of what Frederick calls “the best house parties in Shawnee.” As a songwriter, Frederick channels his love of music into writing much of Rev Gusto’s repertoire of songs. On the band’s first album, “Burned Out Friends,” released in late July, Frederick wrote all but one song, “Not Friends,” a collaborative effort among all members of the band. Given Frederick’s focus on both singing and songwriting, it’s no surprise that his all-time favorite musician is Bob Dylan. As for Rev Gusto, Frederick describes the band’s sound as “garage pop.” Think rock with lots of hand clapping and catchy sing-alongs. “It’s accessible,” adds Frederick. And the music recently spread to a much wider audience. In mid-August, Rev Gusto finished what Frederick hopes is their first of many tours. The three-week stint took them from Nashville to Minnesota and points in-between. Frederick says all five bandmates crammed into a van, something they’ve done before to travel to other out-of-state gigs like Austin, Texas-based South by Southwest, a festival that Rev Gusto has played for the last three years. Being on the road is undoubtedly grueling, but Frederick says he’s used to it, thanks to his day job. Before he started working from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., he used to work from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.—certainly not an ideal schedule for someone who plays music into the wee hours of the morning. “I think it’s just all about pushing your body to go places it doesn’t want to go,” he says. “It prepares you for touring.” The next time you’re cruising around Shawnee in the evening hours and you hear catchy music, it just might be Rev Gusto. And if you’re in luck, they might be in the middle of a house show; home to what Frederick calls some of the best live music experiences in Kansas City. “The best shows happen in basements.”

Shawnee Experiencing The City of Shawnee continues to experience record growth and residents enjoy the amenities that make the area a desirable place to live and work. The Shawnee Economic Development Council, a division of the Shawnee

A Quarter of a Billion Dollars in Development Since 2011, the City of Shawnee has experienced over $250 million dollars in economic growth benefiting our residents and thousands of visitors each year. This growth is spread across the entire city from downtown to western Shawnee and other locations in the community.

More Restaurants and Retail Options Shawnee residents expressed their desire for more restaurants and shopping in a 2010 survey. As a result, new growth in the area has continued to meet these needs. More businesses are now part of Shawnee Parkway Plaza including Bella Dea Salon and Boutique, Burger King, Kolache Factory, 9Round, Nuts and Bolts, PepperJax Grill and Savers. A variety of new restaurants are also featured at 10 Quivira Plaza, including Jimmy Johns, Panda Express, Saints Pub & Patio, Smoothie King and Starbucks.

Emergency Medical Care Close To Home The Overland Park Regional Medical Center Shawnee ER now provides a state-of-the-art emergency room offering everything a patient would receive at a traditional hospital ER, and is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The facility employs 30 medical professionals.

More Jobs and $100 Million Payroll Enhance Local Economy More high paying jobs have moved to Shawnee with the San Franciscobased technology company RiskIQ, and 25 jobs are expected to be created in the next two years. The RiskIQ European office is located in London. RiskIQ works with hundreds of global companies to detect and mitigate online threats from cyber-attacks, and joins other leading technology companies who have operations in Shawnee. General Automatic Sprinkler Fire Protection Company moved 16 new jobs at the 79th and Switzer Business Center from their previous location in Olathe.
