Located in the heart of Kansas City’s Historic Northeast, the EGG (Economic Growth Gallery) building was originally constructed in 1945 for Rose Marie’s Floral and Gift Shop. In 1995 her business closed after 50 successful years. Today, the EGG is home to small business pop-ups created by entrepreneurs (primarily women) from local immigrant and refugee communities, offering an opportunity to hone business skills while showcasing global products and services.
Funding will restore the original Art Deco architecture, replace deteriorating elements, and install new building features. The mission is to create an eco-friendly environment that nurtures a multicultural community and hatches a new future for the women of tomorrow.
