Taylor Swift’s newfound romance with Travis Kelce, tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, has made a significant impact on various aspects, including commerce, social media, and audience engagement. Moreover, whenever the popular singer attends a Chiefs game to support her boyfriend, the local economy of Kansas City receives a boost of gratitude.
Local businesses such as Donutology, Westside Storey, Made in KC, Piropos, and Prime Social have experienced remarkable increases in sales, social media views, and website traffic ever since Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s relationship became public and she began frequenting them.
According to Tim Cowden, the president/CEO of the Kansas City Area Development Council, putting a number on the impact Taylor Swift’s donation will have on the region is difficult. He describes it as an incredible opportunity that she is providing for the area.
When Taylor Swift arrived at the Chiefs game last Sunday, wearing a vintage team sweatshirt, it caused a remarkable surge in online orders for Westside Storey, where she purchased it. Owner Chris Harrington expressed his astonishment, stating, “It’s quite insane. It’s just driven traffic like we’ve never had before. We’re waiting to see when it ends.”
Piropos, the Argentine steakhouse where the celebrity couple enjoyed a romantic dinner in October, had a similar experience. According to owner Cristina Worden, they didn’t need to advertise the visit; people simply called to make reservations. Since then, the restaurant has seen an increase in bookings and received more positive feedback. Overall, the publicity has been a boon for their business.
According to Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas, having Taylor Swift randomly visit their city is an incredible investment with minimal municipal costs. He believes that any mayor would be thrilled to have such a famous celebrity choose their city as a destination. This unexpected boost is not only beneficial for the economy but also for the culture of Kansas City. It serves as a powerful reminder that amidst the challenges and difficulties of life, it’s heartwarming to witness two happy individuals simply enjoying life.
