WICHITA — Ben Arnold confirms what Have You Heard? reported last week: He's taking over the restaurant operation at Cargill's Wichita headquarters where Piccadilly Express used to be.
Which leaves one big question for the guy who has already taken on new headquarters for his Corporate Catering 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."
