Braum’s on South Rock to open in late June

WICHITA — More than a year ago, Braum’s closed on a deal for new space at 1261 S. Rock near Harry and Rock.

Now, the company is beginning work on the store.

It’ll be similar to the one on Seneca near Douglas that opened last month and the one near 21st and Amidon that opened last year.

Like those stores, the new one will be 5,756 square feet with a drive-through and a Fresh Market grocery area.

“That’s our largest model,” says spokeswoman Andie Schwab.

Braum’s has been replacing older stores with the newer model. The Rock Road store is new, though, and not replacing another store.

Leisa Lowry, a broker with J.P. Weigand & Sons, represented Braum’s in the deal, and Weigand brokers Grant Tidemann and his son Bradley represented the seller.

The new store is slated to open in late June.
