Tepa is truly an American success story. I admire the courage of [the Tepa leaders] for their determination to succeed.

Its partnership has been invaluable in helping us build the kind of business foundation that will not only spur continued growth in Kansas City but also for the Tepa Companies as a whole and Tepa’s Tribe, the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians.
