If you want a final cinnamon roll (or several) or, perhaps, a few of those tasty cinnamon-and-sugar "downtowner rolls" from Chacko's Eatery, in Mission, tomorrow or next Saturday, you better call in your order by noon today at 913-671-8199. Chacko's co-owner and baker David Finn has been serving those popular pastries only on Saturdays for several years now, and because the combination lunch bistro and bakery closes its door for good April 27, fans of the rolls better get on the horn before it's too late.
Finn and his wife and business partner, Rachel, aren't sure what their next career step will be: David Finn has been in the culinary business for most of his adult life; before opening Chacko's as a catering venture 15 years ago, he worked for the PB&J restaurants.
The Finns were the parents of toddlers when they opened their first retail shop in 1999. Those toddlers are now young adults: son Chacko is 17 years old, and Liz is a 19-year-old student in the hospitality program at Kansas State University. The Finns moved their shop from 6001 Johnson Drive to a slightly smaller venue at 6009 Johnson Drive in 2010.
