Building relationships from the start
Ad Ventures of Kansas was founded in 1994 by Mike Bellinger, a former 20-year United Food and Commercial Workers Union Representative. In the first years, Mike logged thousands of highway miles building personal relationships with his clients. His strong beliefs in old-fashioned customer satisfaction helped to quickly build Ad Ventures of Kansas into a nationally recognized promotional products agency.
Mike's son, Bo Bellinger, joined the Ad Ventures of Kansas team in 2000, contributing a new energy. Bo's keen eye for detail and understanding of modern business needs created a new focus for Ad Ventures of Kansas. In 2002, the Advertising Specialties Institute recognized Ad Ventures of Kansas as one of the fastest growing promotional products companies in the nation.
In 2008 Bo attended his first UFCW International Convention as a delegate. He had been to conventions before with his dad as a young man but this one was unique because he experienced it as a delegate and member of UFCW District Local Two.
With the addition of Bo's sister-in-law Erin Duke as office manager, Ad Ventures of Kansas' family atmosphere continues its tradition of stability and commitment to customers that a family business offers.

Ad Ventures of Kansas will mark its 25th year in business in 2019. In those 25 years, Ad Ventures of Kansas has strived to think of their customers more as friends than as clients. We thank you all for the continued opportunity to serve and grow with you.
