WICHITA — Wichita is serving up quite a bit of restaurant news this week in addition to the Timberline and Jose Pepper’s news:
– Domino’s Pizza franchisees Mike and Stacia McKnight are preparing to open their third Wichita restaurant.
They already have Domino’s sites near 21st and Maize Road and Harry and Rock Road.
Their next one is opening in the former Quiznos space near 21st and Amidon in October.
Mike McKnight says it gives the chain coverage on the north side and a bit into downtown.
He and his wife, who have three Domino’s sites in Topeka and six in Kansas City, plan three or four more Domino’s restaurants here within the next year or two.
– Bella Vita Bistro is expanding at 120 N. West St. where it opened in early 2010.
“We have to,” says Lory Wooley. “We have too many customers.”
Wooley runs the restaurant with her daughter and son-in-law, Crystal and Adrian Prud Homme DeLodder.
They’re doubling their restaurant size for a total of 2,400 square feet and adding a bar. They’ll also now have space for private parties when renovation is complete in December.
