Puck Punted

The Kentucky International Convention Center's Wolfgang Puck Express will close at the end of this year, to be "replaced by another, faster service restaurant," says Clifford "Rip" Rippetoe, president/CEO of the Kentucky State Fair Board. Rippetoe added the new occupant of the space "will not be a franchise," as part of the decision to close was based on a pricey franchising agreement with WPE concept owner Centerplate, Inc. that "erodes any chance for any kind of profit."
