Ad Ventures of Kansas, Serving Unions and Their Members for 30 Years

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 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 2.
