KC Gets Smoked for Smoker Business

Apparently KC’s long history with smoking meat wasn’t enough to sell the Canadian-based Bradley Smoker, according to this article in the Register-Mail of Galesburg, Illinois.

Galesburg, a town of fewer than 34,000 people on the west side of Illinois, beat us to be the home of Bradley’s new distribution center. Company president Wade Bradely credited Galesburg sales representatives and the town’s economic development association for the town’s selection over Kansas City and several other contenders.

If a city nicknamed Cowtown doesn’t have the economic development experts to land this business, something needs to be seriously examined.
