Hungry in BoDo

Posted By on Tue, Apr 29, 2008 at 4:00 AM

It's getting harder to find a quick snack in BoDo. Two recent closings show just how hard it is to make it on busy Capital Boulevard. The Capital Boulevard side of BoDo is emptying out one by one. Junga Juice is gutted and its neighbor, burrito cult favorite Ketchum Burritos—better known simply as KB's—closed its doors yesterday.

Known for its bitchin' fish tacos and vegetarian-friendly menu, KB's has a loyal following—as evidenced by the copious amount photos featuring KB apparel globetrotting courtesy of KB's fans. The BoDo closing is especially bad news for BW employees. KB's was officially the closest eatery to our offices and over the course of its two years in business, the BW staff has essentially kept the store in business. Apparently our efforts were too feeble.

Owner Brian Kriesien stopped into our offices on Tuesday afternoon to break the news personally. He cited the store's corner location as problematic in attracting foot traffic or providing convenient parking for customers. Apparently, though, none of Kriesien's other KB's locations are experiencing similar downturns in business. The Hailey and Ketchum stores will keep on rollin' burritos.
