WICHITA — Krista Sanderson is using her past experience working in marketing with Candlewood Suites along with her decade of experience as a stay-at-home mother for a new venture called Get Real Wichita.
"It is about real food and helping people try to realize the resources that we have in Wichita," she says.
Her website is free until January when she'll then charge users $10 a month for resources such as recipes, meal ideas, customized shopping lists and discounts to local restaurants and merchants.
"We feel like there's a lot of opportunity to help people," Sanderson says.
"We have these great local restaurants," she says.
She's also a huge fan of farmers' markets and wants people to know what's available here.
"We're trying to help educate people."
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
Carrie encourages readers to contact her with tips, questions, behind-the-scenes business news and even funny quotes from business people. Reach her at 316-268-6340 or email@example.com.
