R Coffeehouse to open within a week

WICHITA — It's taken longer than he expected, but Angelo Rodriguez and his family are almost ready to open R Coffeehouse in the former Riverside Perk space.

Rodriguez says the holdup was a "grand-scale facelift."

"We wanted to do it right," he says.

The business may open by late this week.

If not, Rodriguez says, "We'll be opening the beginning of next week for sure."
