WICHITA — Several years after first considering a restaurant in Maize, pizza proprietors Dan and Ruth Knolla are opening a restaurant there.
“Over the last few years, it’s been built up quite a bit,” Dan Knolla says of the area. “There’s quite a bit … more traffic.”
Their Knolla’s Pizza Maize will open in late October or early November in the Hampton Lakes Retail Center at 4041 N. Maize Road.
The Knollas already have Knolla’s Pizza Cafe on West Central between Ridge Road and Tyler. Other relatives own other Knolla’s restaurants.
Several Knolla children now work for their parents’ business, and that’s the Knollas’ inspiration for a second restaurant.
“There’s so much that’s been built there in the last few years.”
Knolla’s will be on the south end of the 11,500-square-foot center, which Dan Knolla says has a tower on it.
“It’s a nice little design.”
