Five Guys coming to Wichita with several restaurants

WICHITA — Wichita's already impressive array of hamburger places, including national franchises and mom and pop shops, is about to get what many will consider an exciting addition.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries is coming to the market with several locations.

There are almost 500 of the restaurants nationally.

"Toward the end of last year, they just exploded," says Jeff Miller, who has the franchise rights to this area with his brother, Jay, and Jay Brehmer of Overland Park.

The Millers grew up in the Kansas City area.

Jay Miller then spent time in Philadelphia and, when he left the city, terribly missed Five Guys.

"That's how we got turned on to it," Jeff Miller says.
