BOUNTIFUL—Developers have received preliminary site plan approval for a new Culver’s Restaurant to be built on part of the site where the former J and L Garden Center was located.
Applicants GG&S LLC have acquired franchise rights to open their first Culver’s, and plan to build a 4,300 square foot restaurant on the southwest corner of the property on 500 West in Bountiful. It will take a bit less than half of the three-acre parcel that J and L occupied. The garden center was closed earlier this year when the owners retired.
Once final approvals are secured, construction is expected to start on the restaurant in mid-January, with a projected opening date of July 1.
The Wisconsin-based company was started in 1984 and operates over 900 restaurants nationwide. It serves hamburgers, frozen custard, sandwiches, snacks and other specialty menu items. The Bountiful location will be the 12th Culver’s in Utah.
