Bryan Adult Themed Business Opens In Their Parking Lot

An adult themed business is open in Bryan, but not inside their building.

The founder of Austin-based Planet K, Michael Kleinman, said they are waiting for the city of Bryan to turn on their electricity.

Kleinman, who held a press conference on Friday, said they were “tired of waiting” so they are running the business under two tents in their parking lot until they can get into their building.

According to the city of Bryan’s marketing and communications specialist Kala McCain, Planet K’s power was disconnected because they did not and do not have a commercial permit. McCain says Planet K applied for a permit, but it was denied due to insufficient documentation, and the business has to reapply for the commercial permit. WTAW News has filed an open records request for a copy of Planet K’s application and any information as to what led the application to be denied.

Planet K also ran into issues with Texas A&M University for their exterior murals depicting Reveille, the Aggie Ring statue, and a hand signaling “Gig ’em” with an Aggie Ring on.

Artist Kerry Awn says he had no idea he was doing anything wrong.

“My thought was they’re going to like this, they’re going to want this, because this is school spirit, but later I realized you have to protect trademarks and stuff, I went in ignorant, I plead that,” said Awn.

Awn says Texas A&M is giving him two weeks to remove the trademarked artwork from his murals.
