The Kansas City Originals exists to promote dining in local independent area restaurants, to provide diners with a unique
local flavor and to raise awareness of independent restaurants both locally and nationally.
Local restaurants like local bookstores, hardware stores, and coffee shops support their communities. The dollars spent in local restaurants stay in Kansas City and local restaurants support vital local charities. Passionate individuals develop local restaurants. These individuals are driven by a desire to offer something unique and exciting both to our local patrons and to the guests who visit our city.
The Kansas City Originals believe that a vibrant, independent restaurant community makes our city a better place to live. A vibrant local restaurant community increases a city’s culinary and cultural strength. Kansas City is a city with a unique flavor, a flavor we can all be proud of. Local restaurants ensure that this local flavor continues to be delivered. It is our hope that you take a moment to think about this important issue and support all those things that make Kansas City unique, a source of pride and, above all, a great city to live in.
