We have some breaking news to report. As of today, Torchy’s Tacos has permanently closed both locations in Wichita.
There were two stores in town at 2901 N. Maize Road that opened in 2021 and the original location at 2191 N. Rock Road which debuted in 2020.
It’s unfortunate news for the business that poured a lot into east renovation and the complete new build for the west side.
The Austin-based chain originally announced a few years ago that they were coming to Wichita. There was lots of fanfare about the news, but that didn’t equate to customers over time. A rough opening and multiple management changes took place at the east store, and in the end, the Wichita market didn’t embrace Torchy’s as they hoped for.
