Take Your Business Outside!

There’s never been a more important time to think creatively about how your business can welcome customers. Whether you own a restaurant, a coffee shop, a retail store, or anything that welcomes people indoors, we all know that this time is beyond challenging. The good news is it’s possible to use our outdoor spaces to invite and serve customers safely.
 

Midtown KC Now has worked with CityFi and Street Smarts Design + Build to create a helpful, FREE GUIDE on how to take advantage of the space outside your door. Please see link below for the City's Permitting process.
