The Culver's under construction in Lincolnshire is scheduled to open in mid-March.
According to franchise owner Kevin Weasler, Culver's on Milwaukee Avenue, just north of Half Day Road will open at 10 a.m. Monday, March 12. A ribbon cutting with local dignitaries is scheduled for the next week at the store that is in the same shopping center as Fresh Market that opened in 2013.
The restaurant is in the process of hiring more than 60 jobs workers. Founded in Wisconsin in 1984, the chain famous for its ButterBurgers, frozen custard, and cheese curds now boasts more than 650 restaurants across the country.
"We're thrilled to bring handcrafted, high-quality meals and desserts to Lincolnshire, Vernon Hills and other neighboring communities," said Weasler, who also owns Culver's of Buffalo Grove. "We think it's a wonderful area and we are excited to continue to be a contributing and active member."
Culver's fresh frozen custard gets its legendary creamy decadence from high-quality, fresh Wisconsin dairy from which every batch is crafted throughout the day. "Culver's was founded on the idea of providing excellent service and high-quality food made with the best ingredients," added Weasler. "The outstanding people who serve our guests behind the counter have helped us earn our reputation, and we're excited to have team members from the surrounding community as part of our team."
More than 500 restaurants serve customers across the United States, most in the Midwest.
Nine Culver's franchises operate in Lake County. They're in Antioch, Buffalo Grove, Grayslake, Gurnee, Island Lake, Lake Zurich, Libertyville, Mundelein and Zion.
