Blue Moon Caterers looking for new space

WICHITA — Bill Rowe is looking for new space for his Blue Moon Caterers.

Currently, the 10-year-old company shares a kitchen with his Red Bean’s Bayou Grill site at 7447 W. 21st St., but Rowe says it’s not big enough for both staffs.

“We need a traffic light in our kitchen on Fridays and Saturdays,” he says. “It is insane. We are busy.”

Rowe says that “Blue Moon has grown explosively in the last year and a half.”

“We’re turning away work because we just don’t have the kitchen capacity.”

Rowe says he’d also like to have an events center so he can cater parties and meetings and rent the space, too.

“That would be nice,” he says. “It’s not critical.”

Rowe is close to a deal for west-side space, but it’s not done. Regardless of whether it works out or he needs to look elsewhere, he’d like to finalize something in time to be in new space by April.

“I would like to have us move by next wedding season.”
