TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A Topeka cafe that closed when its owner was diagnosed with cancer will reopen this Friday.
Twenty-six-year-old Pedro Concepcion closed the Boca Cafe after announcing in August that he is fighting stomach cancer.
The new owner is James Weckerling, a nurse who said he has wanted to own his own business.
WIBW reports (http://bit.ly/18OI9T7 ) Weckerling intends to keep the same menu and not make many changes at first but eventually he plans to add some menu items and expand the business.
Boca Cafe is a gourmet sandwich restaurant that serves Mediterranean cuisine with a Hispanic flair. It was opened for less than a year in the city's College Hill area before Concepcion was diagnosed. He plans to move to Chicago to be near family.
