WICHITA — Andover is going to be getting a Los Cocos Mexican Restaurant at Kellogg and Andover Road, but which corner is still a mystery.
“We don’t know which one will be the best one for us,” says partner Luis Alfaro.
He’s considering the southeast and the southwest corners.
“We hope we can start the construction this year,” Alfaro says.
The restaurant, which opened on the west side in 2007, also opened in Derby in May. The Andover Los Cocos will have the same design as the Derby location.
Alfaro would like to eventually have a fourth Wichita-area Los Cocos.
“I want to do one at a time – one a year,” he says.
Alfaro has other plans as well.
“We’ve got a lot of projects in mind,” he says of himself and some other investors.
They’re planning another Mexican chain that’s different than Los Cocos.
“I don’t want to reveal (too much) just now,” Alfaro says.
He does, though, say the group plans about six of the new restaurants for the Wichita area followed by franchises elsewhere.
“This will be a chain that I’m going to start,” Alfaro says. “I want to focus on getting the other (Los Cocos), and then I can focus on all that.”
