Chelsea Taylor will manage the store, carrying on the Barbosa family tradition. She plans to have a similar menu at the new location.
Taylor recently graduated with a business degree from Missouri Western State University. She is the granddaughter of Julia Barbosa.
The Kansas City location - Barbosa's Express - will serve lunch Monday through Friday.
Barbosa's has been in St. Joseph since the 1960's. The restaurant has a location at 9th and Sylvanie and one on Frederick Ave.
