Starbucks to open in Chosen Wok space

Apparently you can go home again.

A new tenant coming to the Westlink Shopping Center at Central and Tyler is a familiar one: Starbucks.

That happens to be in the space Starbucks used to be.

“I think they offered my landlord a pretty good deal,” Chin says. “He made me a deal and basically wanted me to get out, which I agreed.”

Chin says she didn’t mind leaving because there are so many restaurants near there that business is tough.

“Wichita is a really tough market,” she says. “It’s just really competitive, I guess, especially for food.”

Even so, Chin is considering opening elsewhere.

“I don’t know yet, to be honest with you.”

Her last day in business in her current space is Nov. 28.

Look for more news on Starbucks soon. Chin says she’ll let us know if she decides to reopen.
