Derby Donut owner David Rhue is opening another restaurant, this time in Wichita, which will necessitate a name change.
Rolled is going to open early next month at the northeast corner of 47th and Seneca in the former Taco J’s space.
“It’s just an emphasis on the bakery products that we’re going to produce,” Rhue says of the new name.
He’s partnering with his brother Dan.

There will be cinnamon rolls, muffins and cupcakes. There also will be fried meat pies for lunch, which Derby Donut does not offer.
“We don’t currently serve lunch at our location in Derby,” Rhue says.
He says that’s not going to change anytime soon.
At Rolled, there will be Philly steak fried pies, pizza pies and chili cheese pies.
Rhue says he’s not sure yet what the hours will be.
“We’ll definitely be open for breakfast and lunch.”
Carl Hebert of InSite Real Estate Group handled the deal for the Rolled space.
Rhue says there’s a chance he and his brother will open more restaurants in the future.
“For now, we’re content with two.”
