Orange Leaf to open at Westlake center at 119th West and Maple

WICHITA — And now for the weekly yogurt update.

Orange Leaf Self Serve Frozen Yogurt franchisee Jeff Finnell is planning to open a new store this summer at 119th West and Maple between Shorty Small’s and Felipe’s  Mexican Restaurant, which is on the east end of WestLake. That’s also where Kanai anchors the northwest side.

“We just saw that as a great destination spot and a great spot to add a dessert location,” Finnell says.

Bradley Tidemann and Cristi Howell of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

There’s been a spate of yogurt places opening around the greater Wichita area, but Finnell was one of the first when he opened an Orange Leaf at the retail center at 21st and Tyler in front of the Warren Theatre last summer.

There’s a second Orange Leaf franchisee in the market as well.

The newest Orange Leaf, which will be in 1,600 square feet, will be the area’s fourth.

Finnell thinks this should do it for him in Wichita.

“I would think we pretty well got it covered.”
