WICHITA — Occidental Management now has its second tenant in its new development at Union Station, which it is planning to transform into a multi-use destination in the heart of the city.
“We’re going to be putting in a Scooter’s coffee cafe,” says Occidental president Chad Stafford, who handled the deal with chairman and CEO Gary Oborny.
Wichita businessman Tad Fugate will open the Scooter’s in 1,500 square feet on the east end of what was the Grand Hotel immediately to the west of The Wichita Eagle. The businesses are across from the entrance to Old Town.
“So they’ll have great presence along Douglas,” Stafford says.
“To have them in this with their coffee brand is pretty exciting,” he says of Fugate and his company.
This won’t be a typical Scooter’s kiosk.
“This is a little bit different for them in that they’re getting into a little cafe style.”
There are similar Scooter’s cafes on the Plaza in Kansas City and in Overland Park.
There will be a drive-through at the cafe.
