Kansas City party Bus LLC. is the premierre party bus company in the KC metro area. We service areas from Olathe, Overland Parkand and Lawrence in Kansas, to Liberty Smithville, Blue Springs to Lee’s summit in Missouri.
Brian Smith and Kirt Snow are the founders of the company. Brian also owns Pole Worx in dowdtown KC with his wife Natalie (that venture was her idea, props to Natalie). Pole Worx specialises in bachelorette parties on friday and ssaturday nights and party buses would show up everyweekend to drop girls off for the Pole Worx bachelorettes paerties.
So Brian got the idea to buy buses and renovate them himself and start operating a bus company since he already had the inside scoop and plug on alot of bachelorette parties every weekend and could do package deals for the girls. So he bid on an old church bus ouside of Chicago on Ebay.
He won the bid and was committed from that point, so next was a one way flight to Chicago with his wife. They landed in Chi Town got a rental car and pointed the car towards the small town outside of Chicago. So basically Brian bid and won a bus he had never actually looked at or inspected in person, and the bus was not quite what he expected but neverthe less it was hand in pocket, grab money and hand extending out to drop 4 G’s in the mans hand and off he went headed back to KC with wife in tow behind following in the rental cavelier.
brian had never ever in his life driven a bus at all, and a snow storm hit on the way back and it turned into a sheet of ice, and for 300 miles traffic was crawling at 20 mph. He also was new to traveling and didnt realise the rental car company was going to freeze hundreds of dollars on his credit card that he was counting on to get home… He found this out when his wife Natalie and him stopped in at a little chinese restaurant and tried to pay and the card was declined. He had no cash and now no card. Brian was eyeing the door for a dine and dash, there really was no other option, except the chinese restaurant workers were 2 steps ahead and seemed to have a procedure for declined cards, they had the front door covered. Natalie ended up finding 20 bucks in her purse and thankfully without anything bad happening they were back on the road.
Back on the frozen blizzard hiway it was 25 mph the rest of the way, to st. joe missouri. Thats where Brian had to meet his mom to give him gas money to get the rest of the way home. Once he got home he tinkered with the bus for about a year, got in 90% renovated and then ran into horrendous electrical problems that only compounded when brian trusted in his friend Pat Cox to attempt to repair it, Brian spents hundreds on the fix but Pat only made it worse.
So brian frustrated was about to throw in the towel on the gig and then teamed up with his friend Kirt to finish the bus and start the bus company. It started like a wild fire doused in jet fuel. They renovated the buses for open party space with 3 strpper poles, unlike any other bus in KC. It was hot, they bought 3 more buses almost immediately. Then they partnered with with power and light to get their clients into the clubs free.
They are buying up other bus companies and renovating new buses every year. brian also started a T shirt printing company to print shirts for the bus company and Pole Worx. Brian has some exciting plans that cannot be disclosed at this time but it will go hand in hand with late night partying, party buses and food.
