At least two new Braum's stores to open in Wichita next year

WICHITA — Two new Braum's stores are planned for the Wichita area, and more could follow.

One will be at 1261 S. Rock near Harry and Rock.

A source with Braum's, who prefers not to be named, says that location will fill a void in the chain's market area.

Leisa Lowry, a broker with J.P. Weigand & Sons, represented Braum's and closed the deal Friday.

Weigand brokers Grant Tidemann and his son Bradley represented the seller.

Braum's will tear down the vacant building on the property, which has been a couple of different restaurants in recent years.

Once Braum's has a building permit — and that can take several months — it typically takes four to six months to build a building depending on weather.
