Downtown Springfield Inc. is the capital city’s non-profit dedicated to downtown revitalization. Our mission is to increase the economic and cultural vitality of the historic downtown district by focusing on increasing foot traffic, filling vacancies, creating experiences and supporting our member businesses

Founded in 1975, Illinois Times is the region’s voice for arts and culture and provides Springfield’s premier arts-and-entertainment section, including a comprehensive calendar of events, weekly film and music coverage, and regular lifestyle features, including popular local columns on food, cooking and gardening.

We also have a longstanding reputation for thoughtful news coverage and analysis. In recent years, we’ve won recognition for investigative journalism, garnering statewide and national awards for both journalism and advertising. We break local and statewide news, helping set the agenda for the capital city of  this major Midwestern state.

MJ Kellner is the only remaining locally owned foodservice distributor in Springfield.  We have been operating in the area since 1920 and supply quality goods and service to a variety of  establishments in a 100-mile radius.

Our sales staff comes from the foodservice community and brings with them a wealth of knowledge.  We use this knowledge to partner with our customers to make a difference in the business they nurture every day.
