    Food Critics: The Best Middle Eastern Food In Kansas City In 2018

    When he was in college, Kansas City author Adib Khorram taught himself to make Persian food. Khorram, who grew up in Gladstone with an Iranian-born father, hadn't always felt comfortable embracing that part of his background when he was kid. The struggle to find cultural belonging would later be mirrored in his semi-autobiographical young adult novel.

Cosentino’s Food Stores – Why Work For Us?

Like many family-owned businesses, Cosentino’s Food Stores began simply enough when the family patriarch, Dante Cosentino Sr., an artist who made his living painting frescoes on the ceilings of Catholic churches, purchased a small fruit stand for his children to operate in downtown Kansas City. That first fruit stand would eventually become the thriving grocery operation that today is regarded among the best regional community grocers in the country.

Today the company is led by the second generation of Cosentino’s, headed by Donnie, David, Victor, Jamie, Jimmy, and John Cosentino. They all take great pride in being a part of a company their father and uncles started in 1948. The three founding brothers Jim, Jerry, and Dante Sr., understood what it took to run a business. They taught their employees the importance of personal service and commitment to the community. Indeed, building relationships –one customer at a time –is woven tightly into the fabric of the company.

The heart of the company has always been to serve others and give back to the community that embraced a young, local, family business from its inception. Cosentino Food Stores main goal in giving is to help feed the hungry and homeless within the neighborhoods of Kansas City, as well as, provide assistance to several children's charities.

The Cosentino Family is consistently marveled by their loyal customers, vendors, and employees. Building lasting relationships and connections with the people and the community of Kansas City has always been seen as a cherished honor.

Cosentino’s Food Stores currently operates 28 stores in the Kansas City area.

    4 Interviews all with very knowledgeable people that built the job up very great. Had to go to several locations for the different interviews but the follow up afterwards was pretty quick although it was during the holidays.
