The Culinary Center of KC’s “Main Dish” Laura Laiben—Now Serving Up Boa


Fashion in the kitchen? You bet, as long as the cook’s wearing the Kitchen Boa, the creation of Laura Laiben, founder and owner of the Culinary Center of Kansas City. Located in Downtown Overland Park, the Culinary Center offers cooking classes, hosts team building events and private functions, and houses a retail shop that also offers grab-and-go meals.

Now Laiben’s creativity in the kitchen has literally spilled over into designing and making wearables for cooks and other kitchen items. Her first product is the Kitchen Boa.

Tune in to hear Laura’s entrepreneurial story and find out what she’s learned about adding a product line, including licensing it, as part of her entrepreneurial journey.
