The new Smoothie King of Derby opens Saturday at 9 a.m. at 1861 E. Madison Ave. and will have a grand opening Aug. 19 as part of the Spring Creek Center Festival.
“We are excited to be a part of the Derby Community,” Neil Bhakta, president of Smoothie King Wichita, said in an e-mail.
This is his fifth store in the Wichita area in not quite two decades.
The Derby Smoothie King will have a drive-through and seating for eight inside along with eight on a patio as well.
Hours are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
All the Spring Creek tenants will have special deals as part of the center’s festival, which is from noon to 8 p.m. and includes free music.
For instance, Bhakta will have half-price smoothies as part of the celebration, All Paws Pet Center will have pet activities and, as Bhakta wrote, Revive Salon and Spa will offer specials, consultations and “help with bad hair!”
