Which leaves one big question for the guy who has already taken on new headquarters for his Corporate Caterers of Wichita and struck a deal to do the restaurant and catering at the Broadview Hotel and still has his catering space at Douglas and West:
Is he a crazy man?
“It’s not as big as it seems,” Arnold says of taking on one more thing.
The new restaurant will open in mid-November or early December.
It will be called Cafe 151 for its address at 151 N. Main.
The cafe will be open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for breakfast and lunch.
All breakfasts will be $4 or under, and all lunches will be $6 or under.
Arnold says his agreement with Cargill will allow him to serve food at reasonable prices.
“It’s a two-way street,” he says.
“I have a long-term relationship with Cargill. I’ve been catering for them for the last 10 years. They know me very well.”
