The Cake Face food truck has been rolling the streets of Wichita since last summer, spreading the gospel of bacon cheese grits, waffle sandwiches and ridiculously sweet and tasty pastries.
Now, owners Summer Schoenhals and her husband, Dave, are looking at a location that doesn’t move.
The couple is in negotiations with a landlord to open Cake Face Bake Shop & Deli. They don’t want to say where it is until the ink is dry, but the restaurant would likely open in early April and would serve breakfast and lunch. The couple plans to offer some of its most famous creations from the truck and also would use the space to create its baked goods.
The food truck wouldn’t be parked permanently, though. The couple’s oldest daughter is about to graduate and wants to go into the food biz, so she’d keep the Cake Face truck on the road.
Summer says she’d serve the grits, her increasingly famous “Wafflewiches” and several sandwiches and lunch specials, such as chicken and dumplings, from the truck rotation.
I’ll let you know if and when they sign the lease.
