CDK Wichita buys former Wonder Bread building on Emporia

WICHITA — CDK Wichita, a distributor of windows, cabinets and doors, has purchased the one-time Wonder Bread building at 601 N. Emporia.

“It’s an old building,” says co-owner Gene Regier. “It’s going to need a lot of tender, loving care.”

CDK is keeping its space at 300 W. Murdock as well. The 40,000-square-foot Emporia building will give the company more room.

The building, which originally was home to the Continental Baking Co., takes up about three-quarters of a block south of Via Christi Hospital St. Francis.

Ted Branson of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal for the trust of the late Sheldon Kamen, who bought the building several years ago.
