West-side Twin Peaks aims for Oct. 6 opening

Wichita’s west-side Twin Peaks restaurant is going up at 7325 W. Taft, near Kellogg and Ridge, and it should be open by Oct. 6, said Rusty Rathbun, the local Twin Peaks franschisee.

The new restaurant will have some perks that the original, which opened in 2011 at 8310 East 21st St N., doesn’t, including an outdoor fire pit and a 110-inch video wall inside. It’ll also have more seating than the east side.

The new Twin Peaks will start hiring staff members on Aug. 18. For construction updates and information about how to apply, visit the Twin Peaks West Wichita Facebook page.
