Schlotzsky's and Cinnabon coming to Central and Tyler

WICHITA — As expected, Ken Mechtley is going to bring a Schlotzsky’s to Central and Tyler.

"I've been looking for a west-side location for quite some time," Mechtley says.

He's going to bring a combination Schlotzsky's and Cinnabon to the 2,300-square-foot space where Taco Bueno used to be on the northeast corner.

Focus Brands owns Schlotzsky's and Cinnabon.

"A lot of the new stores are doing a co-brand now," Mechtley says.

He already has three Schlotzsky's restaurants in Wichita, three in Topeka and one in Lawrence.

"I'll probably be looking at another location sometime next year," Mechtley says of the Wichita area.

The new restaurant will open in mid-September.

Brad Saville of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Doug Malone of J.P. Weigand & Sons brokered the deal.
