WICHITA — Sunflower Restaurant Supply is reopening in Wichita.
The store closed here a few years ago.
“They just kind of realigned the whole company and started over, and here we are,” says Gary Perry, who will manage the store.
Perry sold his Premier Restaurant Supply, which he used to operate here, to Sunflower last year.
He says the economy and management issues caused Sunflower to close here, but it has remained open in Salina where the company is based.
The new store will be at 6803 W. Taft, which is between Ridge and Dugan.
The 3,000-square-foot store will be open to the public, though its main customers are likely to be restaurants and hotels.
The store will sell large equipment, such as ranges and refrigerators, and small wares, such as pots, utensils and dishes.
Look for Sunflower to open in early June.
