Pizza Hut to open at Brush Creek

WICHITA — A new Pizza Hut is coming to the Brush Creek shopping center near 37th and Woodlawn.

It will “fill a hole,” says Kym Money, director of marketing for Pizza Hut of Southeast Kansas, which is owned by Fugate Enterprises.

“We’re always trying to improve our delivery times,” Money says. The goal is “fast, accurate and warm,” she says.

This makes Fugate’s 34th Pizza Hut in the greater Wichita area.

The restaurant will have the chain’s full line of Wing Street products.

Leisa Lowry and Cristi Howell of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

Lowry says the center is doing well.

“We’re getting a lot of activity,” she says.

CiCi’s Pizza left Brush Creek in late May, and Lowry says there’s been quite a bit of interest in that space.

She says Inside Out Fitness, which opened there about a year ago, is doing well.

“Inside Out Fitness is doing fabulously well.”

Inside Out Fitness opens at Brush Creek shopping center at 37th and Woodlawn

WICHITA — Caleb Schroeder was a popular personal trainer with the YMCA, but when he refused to sign a noncompete agreement last month, he says he lost his job.

Since then, he’s been planning his own training business. Now, it’s happening.

Inside Out Fitness is taking the final piece of former Blockbuster property in the Brush Creek shopping center near the southeast corner of 37th and Woodlawn.

“I’m planning to change people’s lives one at a time,” Schroeder says.

He says a lot of people have desires such as looking better or losing weight.

“Basically, a lot of people show up,” he says. “They just think it’s what they’re supposed to do.”

He says it takes more than that.

“Wellness and fitness comes from the inside out,” he says. “You must be tenacious.”

For now, he’ll offer a variety of group and personal training and some sport-specific training.

“We’re in the process of possibly doing a cardio (program),” he says.

Inside Out Fitness is in 1,400 square feet. Leisa Lowry with J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

Since he left the Y, Schroeder has been holding small boot camps to keep in touch with customers. Now, they can work out with him and two other trainers at Brush Creek.

In addition to trying to help people from the inside out, Schroeder says he particularly wants to help people who don’t enjoy working out.

“I’m trying to show people we can make it fun.”
