Another potentially national restaurant concept is starting in Wichita, and the person behind it is a familiar face with some of the other chains that have started here.
Max Sheets, along with a silent partner, will debut three Chick N Max quick-service restaurants in the new year.
The first is opening Jan. 8 in the former Freebirds World Burrito space on Hillside just south of Central.
The second will open in the former Freebirds space in the Village at Greenwich at 21st and Greenwich.
“I was able to get both these in one fell swoop,” Sheets says. “Part of growth is that real estate’s a game of opportunity, and we felt like there was great opportunity here to do these quickly.”
The third Chick N Max will open this summer in the same retail center in front of Twin Lakes at 21st and Amidon where Huddle House is opening. The center is along the same row where Wendy’s and Pizza Hut are.
