Did you know that AMC Theatres was founded in Kansas City, Missouri?
I did (but only because my husband grew up across the street from founder Ed Durwood in Brookside, KCMO). For those of you who didn't, surprise! It's now owned by a Chinese congomerate company, but many of the new concepts are still tested right here in the Midwest.
I recently went to an AMC location in Leawood, Kansas where they've beta-launched a new menu for the theatre chain. Some of the items include a 1.5 lb. pretzel, artisan pizzas and new, healthier options like glazed nuts. Needless to say, my mouth was watering throughout the entire assignment.
