WICHITA — It seems like anytime in the past year would be a hard time to debut a business, but only seven months after opening, Poetic Justice Cafe is already expanding.
Husband-and-wife owners Ahmin Mouchilison and Victoria Palacios-Mouchilison opened their poetry-themed cafe near Central and Webb in October, but it holds only about 25 people.
Wichita has a lot more poets and poetry lovers than that, Palacios-Mouchilison says.
“They kind of seemed like they were hiding for a while,” she says of the time before the cafe opened.
Now Poetic Justice is moving to 300 S. Greenwich near Kellogg and Greenwich where there will be room for about 80 people.
The cafe will close after business May 31 and reopen in the new space around July 1.
“It’s a good size,” Palacios-Mouchilison says of the space, which currently is vacant.
