LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) – A central Kansas college will soon own a popular Swedish-themed restaurant.
Donice and Roy Applequist announced last week that they will donate the Swedish Crown restaurant to Bethany College and its president, William Jones.
The Salina Journal reports Jones said June 10 is the target date for reopening the Lindsborg restaurant, which opened in 1966.
Jones said the restaurant will continue to operate to have a Swedish theme. Bethany students will be able to use their dining hall meal cards at the restaurant. He said it will also be used to introduce prospective students and new donors to the college.
The school’s food vendor, Sodexo, will operate the restaurant. Business, marketing and communications majors will work to help make the restaurant a success.
