WICHITA — Charolett Knapic is still planning her Beautiful Day Market & Cafe downtown, but it won’t open in November as she first hoped it would.
Like most projects — retail or restaurants — everything is taking longer than expected and will cost much more than first estimates.
“We really haven’t moved forward much,” she says. “It seems like the wheels turn slowly.”
That’s not deterring Knapic, though.
“We’re going to have to revamp our thinking,” she says. That includes a new plan to “do things in a less expensive way.”
Knapic, who owns Echo Landscapes, plans to open in 6,000 square feet downtown but isn’t saying where until details are closer to being finalized.
We’ll keep you posted.
