The Made in KC café concept was driven by the fact that the retailer started carrying products from 10 local coffee roasters, and Enders started thinking how fun it would be to serve their coffee in one place. When the landlord of 1114 Baltimore asked whether they’d consider opening a retail store there, the co-owners opted for the hybrid coffee shop and retail store due to the layout of the space. Made in KC also is adding a taproom and event space in the back, which will open in the spring. In true Made in KC fashion, the taproom will feature local beers, wines and spirits.

“Part of the Kansas City arts and culture scene of the last couple years has been the growth of the breweries and the distilleries that have gotten lots of not only local love but national attention as well,” Bradley said.

But as a retail shop without a liquor license, Made in KC hasn’t been able to work with the area breweries and distilleries in the capacity it would like. It’s been limited to T-shirts and themed glassware.

“But this is going to allow us to also be more connected with that part of Kansas City and allow us to expand those relationships, give them another place to showcase their dream and encompass the whole Kansas City experience,” he said.
