Business of the Month —

Spirit Pack was founded by Daryn Ross in his dorm room at William Jewell College in 1987. Then, one year later, his parents, Don and Teresa Ross joined him in the business endeavor.
For their first several years in business, they provided custom screen printed and embroidered apparel, as well as many other custom-printed products to fraternities, sororities, colleges and schools nationwide via mail-order catalogs. All their products were produced in a 900 square foot building which was originally used to raise hogs on their farm.
As their company grew, they began selling wholesale custom-printed items almost exclusively through resellers and distributors.
They built their current manufacturing facility and occupied it in January 2002. Within the last two years, Spirit Pack was created as a new division, which supplies all types of customized sportswear, screen printed and embroidered apparel, and promotional products to any type of organization, association, business, school, team, league, or club locally or nationally.
"Spirit Pack joined the Chamber because no one in this area knew we existed as a company," said Daryn. "Most of our business has been out of state, and we wanted to become known as a local company who provides top-notch products with a passion for impeccable customer service and super fast production times."
The business, now in its 28th year, has been located at 1705 Johnson Industrial Drive for the past 13 years. For more information or to inquire about products call 800-210-3278, send email, or visit the company website.

Join us for our monthly luncheons

We would like to thank those of you who are attending our monthly luncheons and encourage you to invite a non-Chamber to be your guest.
“The purpose of this function is to increase networking opportunities for the Chamber membership. The Chamber has grown substantially over the past several years and this monthly event is just a simple and convenient way to get our membership face to face with other business owners.
Be sure to bring your business cards for an opportunity to be chosen Chamber Business of the Month. The winner will be featured on the Chamber website for a month and will receive an ad in the Excelsior Springs Standard and the Town and Country Leader for one issue. In addition at the next meeting they will have a display table and the chance to talk briefly about their business.
The Monthly Luncheons are sponsored by various chamber member businesses. If you would like more information about joining the approximately 100 attendees for lunch or details on sponsoring the luncheon contact the Chamber Office at 816-630-6161 or e-mail
