Kansas City

Do you ever drive through the industrial parts of Kansas City and wonder what’s being made in those big buildings?

I do.

Or, maybe you’re just looking for some sort of bragging right when it comes to telling your Uncle Fred that those Cheez-Its he loves to eat were made right here in Kansas City.

I’m a life long Kansas Citian and have always had a curiosity about what’s made here in Kansas City. So, I decided to find out.

I’ll be starting with the stuff I know about but will continually add to the site as time allows (and I learn about new things that are made here in KC!)

Please feel free to email me products that you know are made here. If I have something listed as made in Kansas City that is no longer made here, let me know that as well and I’ll get it updated.

At some point I may add a “brands of yesteryear” showcasing stuff that was once made in Kansas City, but is no longer made here. I may also dive into beer – yes, I know we have a lot of local breweries, but with the exception of Boulevard, most aren’t well known nationally.
