Daddy’s Money Pawn Shop at 4928 S. Broadway is now American Pawn and Guns.
Rob Bryant took over the business last month and changed the signs on Wednesday.
“Just wanted to make it clear that there’s a new owner,” he says.
Part of the reason Bryant says he wanted to make that known is he’s moving to what he calls more competitive pricing.
Bryant is a Wichita native but most recently had been a regional vice president of sales for Sprint in Kansas City.
He says he retired “and was just looking for a business I could buy to work with my family and help people out.”
Bryant is already finding benefits to owning his own business versus being in the corporate world.
“I can take my dog to work,” he says of Sugar, an Australian shepherd.
Also, Bryant says, “You can make decisions a lot faster.”
He says, “It’s a lot of work, but it’s a lot of fun.”
