A new business is making renovations to move into the former Speedway Grill location on Kansas Highway 32.
In an economic development update provided to the Bonner Springs City Council, city staff reported that Kay Huddleston and Loey Lockerby of Kansas City, Kan., plan to open Happenings Event Space at 11635 Kaw Dr. The space will include about 4,800 square feet and will have a basic kitchen set up for catering services; industrial kitchen equipment is being removed.
The space will be available for rental with separate weekday and weekend rates, and additional rental item options like a sound system, projection system and catering. City staff reports that the target opening date is the last weekend in June.
