Youssef Youssef to open a new bakery

WICHITA — In other Youssef family news, Mediterranean Grill owner Youssef Youssef (who is Imad Youssef's brother) is planning a new bakery for Wichita.

"It's very good, and it's fresh, and it's lovely," Youssef says of his concept.

The business is still at least four months away, but Youssef already is looking to bring baking equipment from Beirut, where he has two bakeries.

Youssef plans to call his business the Baker. That's what his bakeries are called in Beirut, though they're in Arabic: Alkhabaz.

Youssef will use the English name here because when he used Arabic for his Kababji (formerly in Cambridge Market), too many diners were confused by the name.
