Construction begins for Culver’s restaurant

Plans to bring a new restaurant to Vincennes took a major step forward Wednesday.

The Knox County Chamber of Commerce held a groundbreaking ceremony for Culver’s.

It’s a family owned franchise restaurant that specializes in butter burgers and custards.

The same family owns a location in Terre Haute.

Co-owner Tyler Rehmel says he knew Vincennes was the perfect place to expand.

The new Culver’s will be located at 7 Executive Blvd, the old Executive Inn property.

Officials say they hope to be done with construction in October;

however, that is not set in stone.

It depends on many factors including weather.
