The Nu Way tradition began on July 4th, 1930 at the same location we still call our “original” home at 1416 West Douglas. It all started when Tom McEvoy (the man standing on the passenger side of the car in the picture above) moved from Iowa to Wichita and built the first Nu Way. The dedication and absolute commitment to quality Tom began can still be tasted today as we carry on his reputation. We still make Nu Ways with the exact same recipe using our patented cookers and we still make our world famous Root Beer daily along with our homemade Onion Rings. Our commitment to using only the finest ingredients and to give our customers the highest level of service, make us a proud part of Wichita’s heritage! We now have 5 stores serving Wichita and the surrounding community where we employ about 50 people. We make almost everything we serve fresh daily right in our stores. We are proud of the great products we make and the wonderful people who work in our stores and we are happy you came to visit us! A Wichita Tradition since 1930!
