Mathematics men’s shop to open downtown

WICHITA — Some college students in their final year of school are simply trying to make it through. Wichita State University business marketing major Andy Kim, who graduates in May, is already opening a business.

“A lot of people don’t see the potential in your education until you use it,” he says. “It’s kind of nice to … actually be able to use what you’ve learned in the classroom, that you’ve spent all this time and money on.”

Kim and his brother, Minh Ho, are opening Mathematics, a men’s clothing shop, downtown next month.

“It’s a men’s streetwear boutique,” Kim says.

Think young, hip styles. Kim says there aren’t any streetwear shops here similar to what shoppers can find in big cities.

“A lot of people go online to shop,” he says of Wichitans looking for those styles.

Mathematics will be at 630 E. Douglas, which is a few doors down from the Old Mill Tasty Shop.

You don’t say

“This doesn’t mean we won’t still be friends—I love you all and that will never change—this move will just allow that love to grow. So please, PLEASE, show me that there are no hard feelings and ‘like’ me ASAP.”

Pizza Hut to open at Brush Creek

WICHITA — A new Pizza Hut is coming to the Brush Creek shopping center near 37th and Woodlawn.

It will “fill a hole,” says Kym Money, director of marketing for Pizza Hut of Southeast Kansas, which is owned by Fugate Enterprises.

“We’re always trying to improve our delivery times,” Money says. The goal is “fast, accurate and warm,” she says.

This makes Fugate’s 34th Pizza Hut in the greater Wichita area.

The restaurant will have the chain’s full line of Wing Street products.

Leisa Lowry and Cristi Howell of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

Lowry says the center is doing well.

“We’re getting a lot of activity,” she says.

CiCi’s Pizza left Brush Creek in late May, and Lowry says there’s been quite a bit of interest in that space.

She says Inside Out Fitness, which opened there about a year ago, is doing well.

“Inside Out Fitness is doing fabulously well.”

Oliver’s Little Italy to open in popular restaurant spot on South Oliver

UPDATED — Another new restaurant is coming to 1930 S. Oliver.

The appropriately named Oliver’s Little Italy will open in the next week or so for an Italian lunch buffet.

“It’s in a good spot for a lunch buffet,” says Scott Cosentino, who is opening the business with Dyan Gordon.

The 7,000-square-foot space has been home to a number of restaurants in recent years, including Ben Villar’s Mexican Restaurant, Crossroads Bistro and Steakhouse, Spears and Angelo’s.

Cosentino used to run Crossroads, in fact.

He says Oliver’s Little Italy eventually will be open for dinner in addition to the lunch buffet.
