Man buys cafe

Staff writer

A Marion restaurant will reopen soon under new ownership. Reign Anduss of Marion sold Mom and Dad’s Café, which he and his late wife, Marlene, operated for several years at 113 S. Freeborn St. in Marion.

Anduss’ daughter, Marsha Strecker of Hesston, owned the business at the time of the sale, after Anduss transferred all of his property to her.

Henry Ethem, 73, of Marion is the new owner. He said he bought the business for a friend, who will manage it as “Aunt Mae’s Café.”

“Everything is cleared with the health department to get our license,” he said. “We should be ready to go by Thanksgiving, if not sooner.”

Tentative plans are for the cafe to be open every day except Sunday.
