▪ Krispy Kreme's new Kansas City, Kan., restaurant will be No. 1,000 for the doughnut chain.
When the shop opens at 6 a.m. on Feb. 24, the first person in line will receive a punch card good for a dozen Original Glazed doughnuts every week for a year. The next 99 people in line will get a punch card for a dozen free doughnuts every month for a year. And the first 150 people in line also get a commemorative T-shirt.
The new Kansas City, Kan., shop, at 7648 State Ave., also will give out a free doughnut to the first 1,000 people in line, as will most of the other Krispy Kreme locations in 24 countries around the world as part of the company-wide celebrations.
▪ After nearly three years of operations, Westport’s Bread for All Tandoori Naan Fresh Bread Café has closed.
Owner Stan Yoder said his wife of 40 years has multiple sclerosis and he knew the time would come when he couldn’t be gone 8 to 10 hours a day, but would need to care for her full-time. That day has arrived and “it is a privilege to do so,” he said Tuesday.
They met as four year olds and they were high school sweethearts.
“She’s my sweetheart, my girl,” he said.
Yoder has already sold some of his bakery equipment to former employees who now operate Hummus Bread and More at 4027 N. Oak Trafficway, and have expanded it from a grocery store to a restaurant.
Starting at 10 a.m. on Friday, he plans to sell the remaining equipment at the bakery at 536 Westport Road.
