Brand Renewal

Brands are registered for a five year period. When a brand is up for renewal, postcards will be sent in early March to notify the brand owner. If brands have not been renewed, a final notification will be sent by May 1. Official cancellation of un-renewed brands takes effect on June 1. 


  • Renewals processed online are $45 per location.
  • Renewals via paper (postal mail) are $50 per location.

To apply for an expired brand, or to apply for a new brand:

  • download an application to fill out and mail here,
  • or contact the Kansas Brands Program at 785-564-6609.

Renewing brands online

As of March 2016, brand renewal mailing notifications provide instruction to access owner’s brand information online. This allows online renewal and change of physical and email addresses. Ownership cannot be changed online.
