Welcome to Wichita!

Not only has Wichita been named an All-American City four times since 1962, it also ranked among the top 32 cities nationally for quality of life. In fact, Money magazine recently named the Wichita community a Top 10 Best Place to live (right above New York City). These rankings communicate affordability, short and easy commutes to work and a high level of public safety for your family - attributes you simply can't find in most metro areas. Wichita's diverse business community truly prizes and encourages entrepreneurship and innovation - values confirmed by companies like Pizza Hut and Coleman Companies, which got their start right here in the middle of the heartland.
