By Staff Report

Culvers, the popular midwestern fast food restaurant will be coming to Carbondale this summer according to a Carbondale Chamber of Commerce press release.

“We’re always happy to welcome a new business to our community,” said Jennifer Olson, Carbondale’s Chamber of Commerce Interim Director. “There’s been a lot of excitement for Culver’s to come to Carbondale.”

Culvers specializes in burgers and frozen custard – both made midwestern beef and dairy, the release said.


The first Culvers open in 1984 in Sauk City, Wisconsin. The fast food chain now has over 650 restaurants across the United States, the release said.

Carbondale’s city council voted to approve Culver’s construction on March 13. The restaurant will be built at the intersection of Reed Station Road and Route 13.
