WICHITA — An expansion is reason enough to celebrate for a lot of businesses, but Sharon Entz has an extra reason to be happy.
She'll soon have her garage back.
Entz has been running her 1-year-old Crust & Crumb Co. out of a certified kitchen in her Newton garage.
Now, she's expanding to a 700-square-foot space at 507 N. Main St. in Newton.
"I've had a lot of success selling at the farmers market," Entz says of the Old Town Farmers’ Market in Wichita. She also sells at a Newton farmers market and does wholesale sales to several retail outlets and restaurants.
"This little, tiny space wasn't enough to supply the demand," Entz says of her garage.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
