In 2017, every city in North America scrambled to answer one simple question - where should Amazon build their new 5 billion dollar headquarters? As a modest midwestern city without the resources of it’s flashy coastal competitors, Kansas City needed to stand out from the pack.

All we needed to do it was a charismatic mayor, an order for 1,000 items, and many, many reviews.
