Firehouse Subs coming to Wichita, Chick-fil-A likely going to Derby

WICHITA — A new restaurant chain is coming to Wichita, and a much sought-after favorite may be going to Derby.

Firehouse Subs is going to be opening in Eastgate Plaza at Kellogg and Rock.

The Florida-based chain has more than 600 restaurants in 35 states and Puerto Rico.

No one with the chain could be reached for comment, but its website says a restaurant is coming soon to that address.

The restaurant will go next to where the KU Store is.

In Derby, Chick-fil-A is working on a restaurant at the Derby Marketplace.

No one with the Atlanta-based chain was immediately available for comment, but representatives of the company have said in the past that they’re interested in Derby.

A Chick-fil-A opened at Central and Rock last year followed by a second one near 21st and Maize Road.

Look for more information about Chick-fil-A and Firehouse Subs soon.
