Flying Donuts to open on East Central by Bella Luna Cafe

WICHITA — Tricia Davis is yet another laid-off worker who is reinventing herself in the food industry.

Davis had been an engineer at LSI for eight years when she was laid off more than a year ago. Since then she's been mulling a doughnut shop.

In November, she's opening one next to Bella Luna Cafe on East Central.

"It's going to be called Flying Donuts because we're in Wichita, and we wanted to capture the Air Capital City of the World. We wanted to support Wichita."

The mascot will be a doughnut with wings.

The business will be in 1,200 square feet between Bella Luna and State Farm.

Davis will have a limited amount of seating.

She’d hoped for a drive-through, but she couldn't find a suitable spot.

Davis likes the traffic in that area and being by Bella Luna.
