DEMDACO celebrates 25th anniversary

DEMDACO, a gift and décor company, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2022. Named for its founders Demi and Dave, DEMDACO designs purposeful gifts that help Lift the Spirit – in times of celebration, when comfort is needed or just to put a smile on someone’s face. These hand-crafted gifts are created to nurture goodness, support loved ones and encourage us to inspire others, and ourselves.

In May of 1997, DEMDACO was founded. Demi and Dave contacted three artists and asked if they would like to help start a gift company—and the rest is history. After a few years, Willow Tree launched and nothing was the same. It has been a top seller in the gift industry since 2000.

“It’s been a pleasure and honor to be a part of the gift industry for these 25 years,” stated Demi Lloyd, CEO and president of DEMDACO. “We are very grateful to our sales partners, colleagues, customers and artists.”

DEMDACO’s mission to Lift the Spirit essentially means it is always striving to uplift its community. In the past 25 years, DEMDACO has consistently donated products to dozens of charitable organizations around the United States. Colleagues have also provided their time to non-profits in the greater Kansas City area and around the country. In the past two years alone, 5,600 community hours were served.

“Thank you to each of our retail partners for believing in DEMDACO and choosing to partner with us,” said Amanda Marsh, vice president of sales. “In large part, because of you, we are celebrating our 25th anniversary. You continue to show resilience and adapt to the unprecedented climate, and we are thankful to be your partner in 2022 and beyond.”
