Fondly referred to as The Mall City, K-zoo and The Zoo, the city of Kalamazoo lies in the Kalamazoo County. Settled for the first time in 1829 and incorporated in 1883, the city was renowned for its productions of mandolins, cigars, buggies and the celery plant. A number of research plants and quality educational institutions have placed Kalamazoo on the national map.
The Kellogg's Company is the supplier of favorite cereal and other quick-fix breakfast foods. Some such foods which Kellogg's popularized are toaster pastries, which are a kind instant pastry which can be heated using a toaster, cookies, frozen waffles, which can be stored and heated up later to eat, bars which have the same constituents as cereals, snacks which are fruit-flavored or vegetarian in nature. The company now sells its products in more than 180 countries. It is at this center at Battle Creek where the company found its genesis when Will Keith Kellogg and his brother John Harvey Kellogg decided to create ready-to-eat cereal.
Battle Creek, though quite small in size as a city, is replete with tourist attractions, both natural and man-made. Lakes, nature-reserves, parks, monuments, restaurants, hotels, historic buildings and more attractions are peppered across the landscape of this city.
