Proof of another Hardee’s in the works

In case there was any doubt that Hardee’s is working on a deal for its third Wichita restaurant, there’s now proof at city offices.

In May, Have You Heard? reported that although no one is talking yet, it sounds as if a Hardee’s deal is close to being finalized at former QuikTrip space at the northeast corner of Harry and Hillside and that the chain would open in a new building there.

A contractor has now submitted plans to the city. That’s still not a guarantee the project will go forward, but it’s looking likely.

Since Hardee’s re-entered the market, the first new Hardee’s opened early this year at New Leaf Plaza at the southwest corner of 21st and Amidon.

The second is in Derby across from the Derby Marketplace.

Typically, once construction starts, it takes about three months for a new Hardee’s to open. We’ll keep you posted.
