Fueling Kansas
City for 30 Years

It’s our birthday, and we’re celebrating You.

We’re celebrating your innovation, imagination, and impact. Kansas Citians don’t stop with, ‘maybe someday.’ They take a sip and make it happen. And in three decades together, we've made a difference.

When Danny O’Neill founded The Roasterie in his basement thirty years ago, he knew an incredible cup of coffee could spark something bigger. And it did. The Roasterie has become an iconic brand that fuels an entire city of movers and makers.

And we’re turning our attention to you – the incredible people fueled daily by The Roasterie and their passion for making the world a better place.
