Town & Country isn’t closing anytime soon, despite what some concerned diners fear

WICHITA — Town & Country diners are panicking that one of their favorite restaurants may close, but owner Larry Conover says that’s not happening – at least not anytime soon.

“Eventually, this place will be tore down,” he says of making room for a highway bypass. “It will happen.”

The restaurant, which opened in 1957, is on West Kellogg near Interstate 235.

Conover says it’s his understanding that there’s no money for the highway project right now.

He says he’s beginning to think it may not even happen in his lifetime.

“It may be another 100 years. I don’t know.”
