WICHITA — Terry Newman and Frank Carney’s PJ Wichita group is back to focusing solely on Papa John’s Pizza – for now.
“We have sold our Genghis Grills,” Newman says.
The owners of the corporate Genghis Grills are taking over the restaurants here and running them as franchises.
“They’ve asked and asked, and I finally said, ‘You know what? I will do it,’” Newman says. “It wasn’t we wanted to or had to. … They’ve done fine.”
In fact, Newman says he didn’t want to sell.
“It’s a sad day for me,” he says. “I really love Genghis Grill.”
Newman and Carney opened their first Genghis Grill in 2009 at the former Bennigan’s space at Douglas and Rock Road. A west-side Genghis followed in 2010 at the former Krispy Kreme space at 8512 W. Central.
