September 11, 2007





Bank Continues to Showcase Customers through Bank of Me™ Campaign, Creating Co-Branding Marketing Opportunities and Customer Appreciation

KANSAS CITY, Mo.: Central Bank of Kansas City and Li’L Guy Foods® today announced the kick off of The Bank of Li’L Guy®: Free Checking campaign. Li’L Guy Foods®, a Central Bank of Kansas City customer, will be highlighted in a cooperative advertising and public relations campaign to showcase both organizations’ current marketing and brand awareness efforts. The Bank of Li’L Guy®: Free Checking campaign will offer a Li’L Guy Foods® gift pack and sweepstakes with all new checking accounts opened from Sept. through Nov., 2007.

“We’re excited about the roll out of our upcoming partnership with Li’L Guy Foods® to promote the bank’s Free Checking campaign,” said William M. Dana, Jr., president and CEO of Central Bank of Kansas City. “Our purpose was to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace by looking to our own business customers for free gift opportunities. This idea has grown to looking at other unique ways in partnering with customers when developing any product promotion or long-term campaign.”

Central Bank of Kansas City’s The Bank of Me™ brand awareness campaign was developed to showcase business customers, and create co-branding marketing opportunities. The campaign has also allowed the bank to extend its customer appreciation and community outreach efforts.

“As a business we were very impressed to see the bank’s innovative approach to marketing by partnering with its customers,” said Christina Sloan, vice president of Li’L Guy Foods®. “As a customer, we were honored to be asked to be a part of the campaign; it works as a good business opportunity and invaluable customer appreciation tool.”
