WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Sarah Leslie, owner of Leslie Coffee Co. in Delano, has announced the coffee shop will be permanently closing on December 30 after five years of business. 

Leslie said in a social media post that she has been "working hard" to manage her mental health and balance a home and work life. 

"The reality, though, is that a small business ownership requires endless sacrifice," she said. "At this time, those are sacrifices I’m no longer willing or able to make as a single mom."

Pennant Coffee, currently located at 2721 E Central Ave, will be taking over the 930 W Douglas location in the new year. 

Leslie Coffee Co. has served the Wichita area since December 2018. 

"I’m so proud of the work I’ve done and I’m very happy I made this change and spent the last year falling back in love with my work," Leslie said. "To me, the coffee shop is absolutely perfect."
