About Our Work
Principals Elliott and Kathryn Threatt started their entrepreneurial venture when they opened their first GNC store in Salina Kansas in 1992. From 1992 to 2001 they grew to operate 6 GNC stores in Missouri and Kansas. In 2001 E&K expanded in the airport concessions partnering with Paradies Lagardere in the Kansas City airport (MCI) to operate the travel necessities, E&K moved completely out of the GNC business in 2014 to focus on expanding into new airports.
