Posted on September 20, 2018 at 9:39 AM by Erin Jason

A Culver's franchisee desiring to bring Culver's to the north York Corridor has made application with the corporate office to bring the popular restaurant to Elmhurst. The next phase in moving the process forward is to seek zoning approvals from the City for the required drive-thru and signage. Culver's is a family-favorite restaurant known for their butter burgers, Wisconsin cheese curds, and fresh frozen custard. In addition to those favorites, Culver's features center-of-the-plate entrees, sandwiches, and an ever changing menu line-up packed with a variety of great taste! Culver's plans to demolish the existing on-site building, a former Burger King, and open a new restaurant on the site in early summer 2019.
