WICHITA — When Greg and Annette Helms bought Ty’s Diner at 928 W. Second a year ago, they asked customers what they should change.
“Don’t change a thing,” came the numerous replies.
Except there’s been one overwhelming request since then: Diners want to be able to pay with credit cards.
Greg Helms says he especially heard this after doing some recent advertising and seeing new diners arrive only to discover they couldn’t pay with their cards.
Today was the first day customers could pay with credit and debit cards.
Helms says it’s a good thing, but he says, “Unfortunately everybody paid with debit cards today.”
