Little Debbie Meets Bob’s Big Boy

As construction of the Advertising Icon Museum — part of Kansas City’s $100 million West Edge development — moves ahead, the museum has hired Leslie Strube as its first development director.
The museum, originally slated to open in late 2007, is now expected to open in spring 2009.
The Advertising Icon Museum will showcase a huge collection of three-dimensional advertising icons owned by Bob Bernstein, founder and chairman of Bernstein-Rein.
Strube is quick to point out that advertising icons are not kitschy toys — they’re a living history of brands and pop culture.
