Emporia RDA, Regional Development Association of East Central Kansas

Emporia is strategically located at the nexus of I-35, I-335, U.S. Highway 50, and Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) rail road in East Central Kansas.

Our comparative advantage is provided by our educational Emporia State University and the Flint Hills Technical College providing an educated workforce. Many support businesses add to the highly productivity work environment. Both Simmons Pet Food and Hostess Brands refer to their Emporia facilities as their "flag ship" operations.
