Scaglia founded The Mixx in 2005 after a lifetime of love for cooking and restaurants. Having spent 10 years in San Francisco as a high-end caterer, where she quickly became recognized as one of the best in the business, Jo Marie moved back to Kansas City and quickly recognized the area’s void for a much needed option of healthy, delicious and fast-casual cuisine. The Mixx was Jo Marie’s solution.
After four years at her current location in the Plaza Colonnade and becoming a favorite amongst Kansas City epicureans, The Mixx will open its second location in the Kansas City Power & Light District in the fall 2009.
Jo Marie answered that question herself in 2005 when she opened up the Mixx. Every detail was meticulously planned: the color scheme is bright, warm, and cheerful. The space is open and inviting.
And the food. Ultimately, that’s why you’re here. The food is healthy, hearty. delicious. And fast. This is what we like to eat; this is our promise to you.
The Mixx partners with other local companies to bring your the best dining Kansas City can offer. Bread from Farm to Market Bread, coffee from the Roasterie, organic herbs from the Herb Company. The Mixx also Info./links to The affiliate programs like Vemma/Verve, Woodside Food Program, KCAHF, etc.
After turning downs several offers to expand, keeping focus on maintaining quality dining at the original location, Jo Marie was approached with the perfect opportunity to open a second location. The Mixx will be opening in the Power & Light District in Kansas City during the Spring of 2009.
