Two NW Barry Road restaurants have closed their doors for good, while another will be moving into a new shopping center in Kansas City.
According to recent plans filed with the City of Kansas City 1.28 acres of land located at 6240-6340 NW Barry Road, will feature a new shopping center, which could include Panera Bread Co. moving from its current location at 6145 NW Barry Road across the road to the spot where Kato Japanese Cuisine Sushi and Teriyaki and Winstead’s once stood at 6340 NW Barry and 6260 NW Barry, respectively.
Panera will occupy 4,500 sq. feet of an 11,600 square foot commercial structure that will contain 3,500 sq. foot of office space, 3,600 of retail space.
The drawings submitted to the city showed Panera at one end of the shopping center and Aspen Dental at the other.
The plan is to demolish 7,890 sq. ft of the two existing restaurants
Winstead’s closed its doors last week and the owner of the business – Haddad Restaurant Group – shuttered the doors of another one in Blue Springs days later. A spokesman for the company told the Kansas City Star that the lease wasn’t renewed for the Winstead’s on NW Barry, which opened 30 years ago.
