West Wichita at 29th and Maize Road about to get two new breakfast options.
All Wichita west-siders are about to have expanded breakfast munching options in upcoming months. IHOP franchisee Ali Issa plans to open a new IHOP next to the Sam’s Club at 29th and Maize Road sometime in 2017. This location also happens to be directly across the road from where a yet-to-be-named full-service breakfast restaurant is gong to open at the NewMarket North development that’s now under construction. This mystery restaurant is set to open in spring 2017.
The IHOP, a bit behind the mystery breakfast joint, will break ground in February or March and open by summer.
Brad Saville of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Christian Ablah of Classic Real Estate handled the deal. Saville also has Eastside Investments, which is a partner in the eight acres where IHOP will go. The restaurant, which will be facing Sam’s Club in its upcoming location, will be approximately 5,000 square feet. It will technically be a new IHOP prototype, which is similar to the one Issa opened at the Southfork development at the southwest corner of 47th Street South and I-135 earlier this year.
Unlike the old building, the new IHOP will have 2,400 square feet of retail attached.
“It’ll be kind of a unique building,” Saville says.
