Let's Be Frank owners file a lawsuit and change names

WICHITA — The owners of Let's Be Frank have filed a lawsuit against their landlord at Douglas and Grove.

Brad Standing says he filed suit today in Sedgwick County District Court to regain possession of the space his restaurant occupied since May.

Problems started with a previous landlord and a dispute over a sewer line.

Cheryl Schwab bought the property in late October and changed the locks Nov. 15.

Standing says his equipment is still in the building, and he wants back in.

Schwab won't comment except to say she’s moving her Second Story consignment shop into the former Let’s Be Frank space.

Another dispute the restaurant was in has been resolved.

Two days after Let's Be Frank opened, a California hot dog seller contacted the restaurant to say his business has the same name.

Standing says they've talked, and he's agreed to change his restaurant's name.

It will now be known as Get Franked. But where it will reopen is not yet clear.
